Birds in the House & Sally

Great day the super bowl is over and I ate all the way  through it LOL

I wanted to show you a bird house I purchased at a resale shop back last summer and had it setting on a shelf and had forgotten all about it. As I was scanning the storage room and studio to pick out things to sell at the in door garage sale last Saturday herein Columbia  I noticed the bird house,No I didn't sell it just got it out to play with it. I added some birds I had  not knowing really  how to place them.
Seems like in the last 2 years everybody that had a blog had a bird house. Mine is shabby chic chippy like, but will leave it .
I do feed my outside birds sunflower seeds every morning so I'm a bird watcher


inside bird on a door knob

I wired a couple birds on the outside , I think I got these birds at an auction once in a box of silk flowers and knew someday they would be used for something , today is the day


Talking about birds here is the love birds that was on top of my parents 25th wedding anniversary cake , my sister had it for years and she has cleaned her house out of anything vintage or old so passed it on to me to keep, so it plays in the studio with all my other treasures. I added the vintage LOVE valentine card

                       
       I am still trying to get some valentine cards made , this one I received from someones a few years ago and it was so pretty just had to keep it , It is signed Tammy


                                                                                                            
                                                   
      Hope you all have a good Monday It is very foggy here today . I need to get onto work and plan out my exercise routine for today                                              
               

I added my dress form  Miss Sally Stitch to play over at The Polka Dot Closet . She has all her pearls  & tutu on now and since her picture she has  a fur wrap so need to update her picture. Her name is Sally Stitch becuase that is her name on her original label

      Now don't be disappointed because it won't be fancy smancy , well maybe ?

  8. I'm REALLY admiring the silverware wrapped in a lovely Tea Stained Doily on your sidebar! I'm gonna steal... ummm, I mean borrow that idea! *Winks* Thanks for visiting and no, it wasn't too much information at all, I enjoy hearing everyone's story and it makes me feel good to know how many parallels so many of us have in our feelings, lives, passions, etc... Now I don't feel so much like the Lone Ranger in my eccentricities. *Winks* Yes, The Man always heaves a big sigh when I drag Home another decrepid or derelict Treasure, but after all these years he sees and appreciates that it's my passion and 'thing' so I'll be this way 'til the end! *LOL* Even as a child I was drawn to what I am still drawn to and it really is quite a mystery as to 'why' I am particularly content and fascinated by it???

    I Love your Romantic touches... Happy Valentine's Day from the Arizona Desert ... Dawn... The Bohemian
