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...

Jane

  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

  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!
