Flowers and Bird Treats

During a very brief yard sale-ing excursion and a trip to a nearby Goodwill with my dear mother yesterday I found these flowers and birds to add to my home. My favorite flowers are yellow roses and you know that I love pretty plates. During the spring and summer months I decorate my living room with birds and birdhouses so you can easily see why I was excited with my finds.

A delicate numbered Haviland china plate.

A happy bluebird family.

A momma bird watching over her babies - in a snowglobe nesthouse.

The little nesthouse is at home on a table with other special things. Do you recognize the book from here? The little birdhouse nearby was a gift from a very dear friend. A Scripture verse is printed on each side of the small cards that rest on one side of the roof. The pretty little planter was part of an appreciation gift from a dear older friend who is now at home in Heaven.

  2. You found some great items - it's so great to find new additions to a collection. They look great on your table - like they've been there the whole time.
