Did I ever tell you about my love for birds? Why yes...I believe I have. No no...not live birds---decor birds. They are one of my favorite accessories to my home (much like headbands to myself), and I seem to find them here and there, and when one speaks to me, I take it home (and it has to be a good deal!).
I was looking at a blog today and it was about home decor and such...and it triggered me to look around and count the 'bird' accessories I have. I started taking pictures...and well, I'll show you.
Here is my flock.
....and that's not all of them, I shamefully admit.
Would I call this a collection? Heck-to-the-NO. A collection is something elderly people have, right? Okay...maybe not exactly. However, I can't help but think about a trip to my Grandmom's the other day, when she showed me her whole collection of birds and German glass people (which are worth a ton, might I add) that were in a lovely lighted glass case. However, her birds were different. They were shiny, they were colorful...they were freakishly realistic. They weren't my style whatsoever. However, once I expressed my love for birds I saw her eyes light up. I bet they'll be written in the will for me now (which is better then her scary porcelain dolls). In all seriousness, I love my grandparents. But, our collections are different right?
Or maybe they're not...
Either way, there you have it. My intense love for all things bird. Some of it, anyway.
