so i’m a bit in love with bird ornaments

So I only recently realised I have a fair few bird ornaments about the place. I also realised I had named a few of them. Call it sick and twisted but it’s a reality. I’ve also snapped a lot of them in homewares stores. Am I following them or are they following me? Who knows. Check out my feathered collection…

This old chap above I picked up from The Reject Shop; it’s an Aussie discount store and I nabbed him for eight dollars. He sits on a stack of books beside a lamp. He’s an intellectual. I’ve named him Alfred. He’s such a bookworm.

Gertrude has been in the family for a few years. I got her from a homewares store many moons ago in Leichhardt. She has always sat on  a windowsill looking out into the world. She is a guard bird of sorts but she’d fly away the first chance she got. Gerty is an old broad who can’t be tamed.

P1090011

Cracks is named so because he has had a somewhat troubled life. He is on the straight and narrow now and lives on my coffee table atop a stack of coasters. That’s typical cracks; always coming out on top. He is very calm these days.

P1050884

Hoot I got last year from Typo. He’s a bit of a weathered gent and he doesn’t mind a spot of red wine an a heated debate about the state of the world. He now takes residence on my partner’s desk; watching him play video games. I think it’s a midlife crisis.

Peace Dove adorns my Christmas tree each year. He is a beautiful and pure guy who doesn’t mind spending 11 of the 12 months in hiding. He kind of likes being in the closet for the most part.

I recently spotted these three birds at Shack in the Moore Park Supa Centa. They remind me of the Golden Girls; Dorothy, Rose and Blanche. I imagine they sit around regaling tales of their heyday. Aren’t they cute?

  13. Last Christmas my best friend gave me a really nice wooden Christmas ornament. It had my name and a picture of us engraved on it, she got one too! It was super cool and I found out that this company out in Colorado called Unique Custom Products made it. I will definitely be ordering from them this year …check out their website if like wooden items @ http://www.custom-christmasornaments.com.
