Watch the birdie

Did I ever tell you that years ago I started collecting birds? No? Well yeah, I have a bit of a bird collection. Some of them sit in a shelf that is built in to the wall.


Want a closer look? 
Sorry, but any closer and you are going to see just how filthy these things are. I really need to clean them. I think even this one is too close because the dust shows up way too good on the globe and the egg.

We're birdwatchers, so I love this. The tiny plate is unusual.

Aren't they cute? I'm just sure you'll never guess what it is I collect (besides dust, that is ;o)
Love that built-in. Fabulous!

LDH said...

Beautiful collection and the shelf is great too. Love the design!

Any one of our cats could clear those shelves off in the bat of an eye, and it just so happens that we just lowered the price for their services. Interested?

Didn't you know dust is the protective code of your collection? :)

Your bird collection is pretty impressive. I have a collection of smurfs ;-)

Love your birds - I think the dusting is the reason I need to "stop" collecting things - lol!
Hugs, antonella :-)

your birds are like my glass animals and cut glass, have to back way off to get a shot that does not include dust. i like that red egg on the bottom shelf. the top shelf looks like a music box, is it? i stopped collecting and got rid of what i had collected except for 7 bottles and my glass because of the dusting thingy

A nice collection, I like that new header also.

They are indeed pretty, and I can so relate to the dust that collects. Way too quickly too.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Love, Yesterdays said...

Pretty bird collection! I don't have collections since I don't like to dust either and pet hair tends to end up everywhere even up high!

Marg said...

That is a terrific collection. Now if you hadn't told us that the globe had a little dust, we would have never noticed. We still like seeing all the birds. Hope all of you have a great week.

I have a couple hundred rabbits. I really should get rid of a lot of them.

Debra Dickinson said...

Great collection! I have tons of bird feeders in my backyard and have my desk situated just so for viewing them while I work. Thanks for sharing! :)
