Little closer view of the bird; it's beautiful and velvety...yum.
And a cone of bird-inspired decor...
...and I'm kinda proud of this one. I got the silver tea pot from Chicks Picks at the annual Lucketts sale, the bird on top from the cottage the same day, and brought them home to be mated, painted, covered with glue and glitter, and decorated with a nest and velvet leaves. Sorry, but I think it turned out pretty darned cute.
Front view, still kinda cute, huh?
A little aside...bike rim wreath...still nature-inspired, right?
Little birdie-inspired vignette at the shop.
Close up of Harold and his bird friend.
This is part of the miscellany...I bought this great old paper umbrella from Tammy of Sweet Finds at...wait for it...take a wild guess...The Pink Cabbage! I didn't know where I was going to put it exactly but the colors were pretty much made for the dining room. When I went in Edith was screaming for some shade so she won the umbrella. Edith was made by Bill Something who had a studio at Oella Mill and I asked Paul for one of his tea pot ladies for Christmas a few years ago and he obliged thankfully; I love her. And for now she's got shade.
