for the birds

Spring is for the birds.  I am inspired to post about these lovely birds.  I love hearing them sing and chirp early in the morning.  

These turtle-doves flew into our home and are quite in love with the spot by the window.  They were a gift and made by hand - you can have your own birds, "Vrooman Woodcarvings" and wildlife gallery in Downtown Historic Truckee, 530-587-8104.  (no web site) William Vrooman carves these beauties.

Love this runner for a hall-way, I like the graphic design and the colors, oh and the birds.
Found at West Elm.  Although I have never ordered anything, I do like the clean and simple 
design aesthetic.

I am not quite sure when my love for the birds began.  Could it have been the Alfred Hitchcock movie, "The Birds" or that when I was a young gal my sisters called me "Bird-legs?"  Above these two golden doves could easily fly anywhere into my nest.  I found them at Oly Studio.  

Bird-in-the-hand posted this sweet bowl from Whitney Smith.  I would imagine these birds-in-my home and the three birds would symbolize my three children.  
Visit this little-byrd to take a peak at her sweet things, she makes such unique pillows and other items while raising a wee little one all from her nest.
After all "chicks of a blog-feather must stick together!  Do you have a penchant for the birds or the bees?

i've had a 'bird-thing' too, esp. like the simply designed works you've found. graceful and sweet. see for more delightful doves.

i might like those monkeys below even better! what a fun room.

Love your sweet birds....I wish the turtle doves would land in my window! Where did you get them? I love them so much.

I love all those, too. I realized after reading this, and looking around my place, that I have begun a bird collection. A small one, but a collection nevertheless.

Hi! I just posted last night and half-way thru the post mentioned my love of birds (put a in link to an Emily Dickinson poem) What a lovely find to see your post on birds this morning!

Oh what a sweet post - I have to say that one of the best things about living in rural CT is hearing all sorts of birds sing all day - it truly is very calming and peaceful and it puts a smile on my face everytime I see them play, sing and hop from one branch to another!

I'm listening to a robin sing his morning song right now outside the window. Lovely sound and lovely post. Thanks for such a sweet mention!

Be the change..... said...

haha, I was called 'bird-legs' too -also 'chicken legs'. Funny - kids aren't always that creative with name-calling!

Charmed, I'm sure. Those birds in the window make me smile.

Love the birds you posted, always a treat to find more lovely birdie things out there to add to my real and virtual collections.

And thanks for the link, I'm honored!

Very nice post! I love the birds you found.
I wrote a post about birds too, then another one, and since then I have found so many cool bird things that I am tempted to do another.

I love your birds. They make me think of love and that anything is possible.

Mrs.French said...

Thanks so much!

Courtney said...

these birds are perfect...not too much at all...I've been drawn to that Whitney Smith bowl too for quite some time. Excellent taste!

I love birds too, but now they kind of scare me since they were dinosaurs once! Do ever think of that? Anyway, those brass birds from Oly - I just ordered those for a client's shelves. They are so great - they are huge in real life!

And I love that rug - it reminds me of your cute calling card!
