Gone to the Birds....

I was just taking a look around at all the Christmas decor....and noticed something....

See a theme developing here?

Then, I looked around my house....and, by golly, I do love my birds!

Just a note ~ yep, that is a nice layer of dust I've got going on top of the bookcase, beneath the little green bird.  I do dust!  Regularly, in fact!  But, that dang bookcase is so tall....I have to drag a chair in there to dust on top.  Besides, no one ever sees way up there....right???

I find myself a bit surprised to realize that I have such a growing collection.  It just kinda snuck up on me!  Has that ever happened to you?   Please assure me that it has!

Since I have "feathered my nest", so to speak, I am linking up with French Country Cottage's "Feathered Nest Holiday".  Check it out each Friday in December to see what's new and get inspired!

Warm winter wishes...



  1. Love your little birds Janie!!!
    The white one is my fav.
    Have a fantastic Thursday my friend~

  2. Hi Jane.
    I love those birds, in fact...I have those same rust colored birds. They look so pretty in your tree. I see that you are son to be a real estate agent. Good luck! I, too have a license. Happy holidays. Linda

  3. Hi there Jane~ Love your birdies!! I, too, have some of the same little clip on glass birds for the tree- mine are white and silver and I just love them! Everything is looking beautiful over here! Hope you will consider stopping by and sharing at my Feathered Nest Holiday party starting up this evening! :)

  4. Your birds are gorgeous! The question might be, how could you not add them to the collection?! Love your blog (your header is gorgeous!) and I am your newest follower! Please join me at my history blog - I'd love to have you along!
    Blessings for this wonderful season!

  5. Love your birds .. you are not alone my friend .. I found one day , that somehow a ladybug collection had crept in to our home...HHL

  6. Oh honey! I don't buy anything that doesn't grow into a collection. My kids tease me constantly. I noticed the same thing with my Christmas tree and snowman - so one of my trees now is completely snowmen. I don't call it obsession - I think it a sign of a focused mind!

  7. I love your birds displayed over your home -the few tucked into your tree really are pretty

  8. Hi Jane~ just stopping back over to say thank you for sharing this at my party!! :)


THANK YOU for stopping by for a little visit on the Porch! I absolutely LOVE comments, so please leave a note and let me know what you're thinking.

Capturing a Magical Light

After several gray days of frigid temperatures, along with a bit of ice and a flurry or two of snow, the sun shone brilliantly on New Year&...
