Birds, Birds, and more Birds

November 3, 2009

Hello. My name is Michelle Workman and I am addicted to birds. It has been one second since my last bird viewing.

All birds large and small, functional or not, make me giddy with delight.  So far I have had a great time finding photos for this blog.  Some things I found on Etsy, and others are from my house or my store… follow along to see what I found!

Personally I think the swan dish pictured above is sick. And by sick I mean, I am sick with envy that it is not in my hands.  Seriously, I covet.

Really!?! I want to live in a world where birds are dressed up as royalty… doesn’t everyone?  You can get these fabulous platters (there is a whole series of dressed birds) from Ibride.

This is the second gift my husband ever got me, it is a music box and of course the bird swings on his perch when wound up.  It still fills me with delight.

This fabric/wallpaper is one of my favorites from Schumacher.  It is a perfect meld of traditional and modern.

This little cutie is in my store and I use them as place-card holders (I stick the card in his tail).  They are a bit of frivolity on a formal table.

Isn’t that what we all need once in a while, a little frivolity to enliven our serious formal selves?  Birds do that for me, they lighten my mood and brighten my day.  I love them in little bits wherever they are not expected.  If you need a pick me up… go get a bird!

      Thanks Chris! This is my first foray into writing and it has been interesting trying to express myself in writing – rather than visually… but this is sort of both, isn’t it?
