A Little Something Tweet

When I was a little girl, we had about 10 or so differently colored lovebirds. Okay – that may be exaggerating…though it seemed like we had a lot. I was only about 5 years old, but I remember how I loved watching them in their cage just hanging out, mostly. I still remember the cage. It was a white, palatial-like cage…beautiful with all the colorful lovebirds in it. I haven’t thought about that for a long time. My mother loved loves birds! She often has a bird feeder out on her porch, deck, by the kitchen window (she moves around a lot). Wherever she is, she’s got one. I’m not sure that I’m a bird-pet person. But I do enjoy listening to them chirping outside of my window signaling spring time.

Maybe it’s my childhood lovebird memories or my mom’s love for birds having influenced me, but I’ve somehow found a way to bring them into my home–well, bird prints anyway (one step at a time, you know!). And I never thought I’d develop a taste for bird prints. But I somehow find myself absolutely adoring them.  There’s just something very peaceful and soothing about them for me.  I’d put up as many as I could, if the Hubby would let me! Well, maybe not that much….and he did allow for a few….

not so much a bird print, but i though i'd share this bird ornament with you anyway!

gracing my upstairs hallway. beautiful, isn't it? i got two!

my most recent additions -- from the national gallery of art. had the three prints custom framed. a delight in my home office.

So what sparked all this?  Well, I stumbled upon a lovely Etsy shop owner, Geninne, who had a number of lovely bird prints that were just too sweet not to share with you!  Here are a few of my favorites….
