I Had to Have the Bird


Have you ever seen an item at a flea market or antique mall and kept passing it by, but it wouldn't get out of your mind. That is what this little metal bird was to me at Blue Suede Shoes Antique Mall. Everytime I was in there working or just looking around I would pick it up and think it needed to "fly" home with me. So last week I gave in and brought it home. Now where did I want to put her. Well it happened that the same week I had gone to some yard sales and found this little pottery bench for a quarter. Don't they look cute together on my mantle.
When I told my friend Pat (www.birdnestontheground.blogspot.com) about the bird (before I bought it) she emailed me back that she had a vision of me leaving the mall and white birds flying around my head. We thought this was so funny, but you would have to know us to know it was funny. Anyway it made me decide that the bird was meant for me. This may begin a new collection for me of bird and bird related things. Birds have always been special to me.
I hope ya'll enjoy looking at my little shabby chic bird as much as I do. Everytime I look at it, I smile.

Bird collection, huh. Well, I can tell you all things bird are cool! I should know. I especially collect cardinals, and blue birds, and crows, Ha, I guess that means any that catch my eye. And frogs of course.

Like your tweeter.
