Is New Years for the Birds?

I love getting stuff in the mail!! And look what arrived in a big box yesterday! Isn't she cute? (Well I think it looks like a she. Then again I also think it looks like a dove and Abigail says it is a pigeon...)
Here is another view of the the Dove Lamp. I bought this when I was down in Naples over Christmas at a little shop on 5th Avenue called Renaissance Imports. I just flipped out because I love anything with birds.









Please don't tell anyone. Have you ever noticed that when someone sees that you have more of just "one" of something, they think you are starting a collection. I once had a ceramic rooster (oh no, another bird) in my kitchen and slowly I started getting gifts, a rooster picture here, a rooster figurine there... until I said no more roosters! Has that ever happened to anyone?
Well I thought I would share my lamp which we had shipped to us and a few of the other little feathered friends I have. While I was taking my pics I snapped one of Milo looking out into the cold, gray backyard. It's going to be awhile until we hear any birds singing out there!




Stay warm everybody!!
xoxo

LOL, isn't that the truth! I did have a pair of real doves that decided to live at my house, they would sit on my fence a make out with each other! Really! I had a covered front patio and she would make a nest on the ceiling fan, I kept turning it on to discourage her. One day I came home a scared her, I switched on the fan and SPLAT! Her little egg flew off. :-( I felt so bad...

xoxo,
Cathleen

These are so cute, Janie! I think I would have hugged the mailman! LOL!

If they go missing, you know they might have landed in a magpie nest. ;-)

XO,

Hi Jane...just saw your comment about a tutorial on flowers. On my gosh...if you could see me putting that together, you would die laughing. I put the green holder in the crystal vase (as a holder) and then started playing. I appreciate the vote of confidence! :)

LOL...love the dove pigeon lamp. Definitely a dove. :-)

I hear you on the roosters...one of the first "decorations" I put in the shore house was an apothecary jar filled with shells...And everyone started bringing me shells and shell things (apron, towels, prints)...Now, I've got a LOT of shells!
