Going to the birds.

Yes...sir that's my baby...No sir I don't mean maby.
My dh's grandmother just passed away..I was given this by my mother-in-law. I love old postcards.
This one sings opera....""ahhh Marieeeeee"












This little guy was given to my Great Grandmother Wilt by her students when she was retiring from teaching. It is very old. It says "Best Wishes".


















The needlepoint was made by my Great-grandmother...Grandma Poo. You heard me right. POO.







And I mean going to the BIRDSSSSS ! We are talking just short of Alfred Hitchcock here baby. NO Joke. Thought I would give ya all a break from all the goulish decor..for the most part. Although mentioning Hitchcock does favor towards the macabre. I thought I would share a small part of my obsession with bird related things. No harm no foul, right? No pun intended ...yeah right. I am an equal opportunity bird owner here...not biased by color. We got silver birds, white birds, multi-colored birds, and yes black birds. We have old ones and new ones. It doesn't matter...its all good. I know many of you share that same love for our feathered friend. I just started snapping away...and I didn't get them all. A few flew off in the making of this post. REALLY. THEY. DID> Which reminds me you ever see them flying around inside Costco...or other big box stores...ewwww, gross....where are they hangin out when we are not there? Please tell me they are not nesting on my loaf of bread! Ok I digress.


Hey if you want to join in sharing a few feathers..er birds..nests... etc.. I would love to see your collection. Bring it on...alert me if you do and I will link you here on this post. Sooo yeah you are wondering about the odd ball there...MR. Boo boo kitty. (Remember shirley from "Laverne and Shirley"..she had a boo boo kitty too. I had to throw him in..he is my newest Kitty on the block. He promised not to bother the birds. He was a special order for a lady. Hope she likes it. If you want one email me. I have pumpkins and owls left. Have a great weekend. I am almost done with the give-away I am doing. I will be posting it on Monday. Don't forget to drop by! xoxo,cherry

The Berry's Patch said...

What pirdie birdies. Now I know pirdie is not a word. But I had to use it. I love birds too, but not the real kind. They poo all over my back yard and occasionally my dog brings me one half eaten...ick is an understatement.

Sorry to hear about your hubby's grandmother. Hugs from me. :-)

AJ said...

Just had to come back to let you know I saw something very similar to your pumpkin guy on Ebay. Yours is a steal! I'm tellin you, I think you could be making some big bucks:):):)

I couldn't get over all the pictures! That's one thing I love about you--lots of visuals! I loved the little nest in the teacup. How cute! I don't have a single bird in my house. I know...I hang my head in shame! :)

Love your collection of cute birdies! I'll have to look around and see how many I have, not near as many as you do! Cherry, you so need to do a house tour if you haven't already. I see parts of your house and would love to see more!

Hi Cherry
Sorry to hear about your dh's grandmother.
I love your collection of birds. My favorite is the robin.
Do you like real birds?
We have a gorgeous budgerigar as our family pet. He is very friendly and tame. He even talks! Maybe I will do a post about him. Thanks for sharing your lovely collection.

I LOVE all your birds! I have quite the obsession with the bird, too. If you want a laugh, check out my dove post. Some people thought I was joking. I was most definitely not.

Tausha said...

So-do people call you the "bird lady"?
I only mean that in the best of way!
I love pie birds-I can't think of the correct term right now-but I have always thought that they were so cool. I must find me one!
I am making my own witching hour clock as we speak. Come and see-maybe I will have it posted tomorrow or monday! Thanks as always for the inspirations!

Kathy said...

Great photos! you know, I, of course, loved the old stuff I was seeing. My only bird items are pictures - does that count? :) Oh, I could get a pick of my retriever staring at the birds on the other side of the fence. ;)

Susie Q said...

What beautiful things! Oh how I adore the little Best Wishes bird! And it is such a family treasure!

Hugs,
Sue
