Bird's Eye View

Hello, Dear Ones.
 First of all I would like to thank Maria at Our Home Away From Home for featuring my little homemade dress that I sewed. I'm amazed so many folks would even look at it and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If you'd like to see that post just click HERE.
Okay. Today I wanted to show you a little vignette I've set up with little birds.

 I just love bird figurines and these little vintage ones are so sweet.
 Here's a sweet little couple.
The birdie on bottom got its tail broken a few years ago but I poked it back on with some glue and it is not the best job I've ever done. 
Oh, of course this was before I got so talented.
I hope you know I'm teasin'! :)
I'm not sure if this is a little duck or a pheasant but do I care?
No, no Nannette! I don't care. I love him anyway.
This is a very simple little olden bird who was under the cloche.
I wonder how she got out?
You have to mind your Ps and Qs when you're around little birdies.
They watch and observe your every move so be a bunch of sweeties.
Or maybe I should say 'be a flock of sweeties'! :)
Well, obviously they move around too!
How did they get on the table in front of my window?

I'm joining Dwellings ~ The Heart Of Your Home for Amaze Me Monday

I have a couple of new posts on my RV blog if you'd like to see them.
Just click HERE and HERE

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Lost In Your Eyes

I get lost in your eyes
And I feel my spirits rise
And soar like the wind..
Is it love that I am in?

I get weak in a glance
Isn't that what's called romance?
...And now I know
'Cause when I'm lost I can't let go

I don't mind not knowing what I'm headed for
You can take me to the skies...
It's like being lost in heaven
When I'm lost in your eyes

I just fell, don't know why
Something's there we can't deny...
And when I first knew
Was when I first looked at you

And if I can't find my way
If salvation seems worlds away
Oh, I'll be found
When I am lost in your eyes

I don't mind not knowing what I'm headed for
You can take me to the skies...
Oh it's like being lost in heaven
When I'm lost in your eyes

I get weak in a glance
Isn't this what's called romance?
Oh, I'll be found
When I am lost in your eye

  1. They are all so pretty and delicate. That one is definitely a duck, a pheasant has a different shaped head and long tail feathers. Beautiful vignette, you have a knack it.

  2. Your birds are lovely Shelia! My favorite is the red one under the dome.
