Hello Birdie

Typewriters, birds, pinecones.

They all sort of go together in my eclectic eye.


After Christmas I didn't know exactly what to do with my entryway table, so I removed the obviously Christmas decor (letter to Santa and mini nativity set) and plopped down a bird statue.

Done.


I figure once Winter is gone (soon, please), I'll replace the greenery in my vintage Hull vase with tulips or something equally as Springy.


Anyone else freezing their buns off today? I'm planning on staying inside, building a roaring fire in the wood stove and having a mug of nice hot tomato soup for lunch. Might also throw in a steamy cup of cocoa for good measure.

Thanks for all the input on my Infant Jesus Of Prague statue. I have decided to keep and enjoy Him for the time being. I do think we're meant to find things at certain times in our lives for a reason (well, not like finding a wooden coat hanger at the thrift store has any meaning to it, but you know what I mean).

  3. Another nifty vignette, Pam. It was -5 when I drove Josie to school this morning. I love winter, but this extreme cold is getting old.

  4. Looks pretty and hope you stay warm there. Heard you got snow again...we are cold, snow coming in tonight, so more headed your way.
    Wind chill is 2 above here. Too cold for me! Playing inside today.

  6. It's perfect Pam! Your lunch plan sound like a good idea to me. It's dark and dreary here today, but at least I can walk in the garage without getting frostbite. Stay warm:-)

  7. Love that creamy Hull vase with the bird. I will not tell you how sunny and warm it is here today but on the flip side it is windy and it hurt my flipping eyes. So I stayed inside and made lemon curd coffee cake. Stay warm lovey.

  9. I love the waxwing with the evergreen sprigs! If I were thinking about winter being over soon I'd be delusional. Keeping my fingers crossed for mid May. :)

  10. Oh, I disagree. I think it's a sign that you're "hanging" out at the right places.

    It's so cold here that I plunked my tulips in a pitcher to make me think it's warm in our house. Time to remote the gas fireplace!

  11. The table looks lovely.

    Sounds like a good way to spend
    the day!

  13. I love your bird and he is a pretty BIG bird when I see him next to something else. It is cold here, too....too cold! Glad you are keeping your statue. I think you are meant to have him- xo Diana

  14. Your bird looks perfect with the vase and pine cones! I wish it was colder over here our high was 82 today! I didn't get a chance to wear my new boots ;(

  15. In my mind's eye all your little bits and pieces go together too. Ohhh it is so cold here! When I see Marissa's comment about it being 82 I think to myself about how that is just not fair...I'd trade places with her in a minute :)

  16. Timely post...we are getting ready for a booth at a show next weekend and I asked my booth partner "Suppose we can do birds?" Why yes we can :) Looks great!!

  17. Great winter display!
    It's a blustery day here in Michigan, too! Staying in front of the fire, trying to stay warm.
    xxoo

  18. I am laughing at the comment on my post you just left. It IS ironic that the post Blogher decides to share with the world is the one about my total lack of confidence in my blogging self!
    I love your profile picture, by the way.
    Hey, if I took that good of a picture, I wouldn't have had to go through, like, 12 pictures of myself.:)

  19. I love bird statues and have them all over my kitchen. They are the only thing that doesn't get removed they just move around!

  20. I'm still chuckling about "Run, Tippi, run!". Very funny. Your bird-y vignettes are very pretty and wonderfully creative. The feathers in the vignettes add such interesting pattern and color.

Thanks for taking the time to comment! I read and appreciate everything you have to say.
