The birds in my life

I haven't had time to do much birdwatching this summer, but birds and their nests are still making their way in to my life. This owl print is a recent thrift store find.

I bought this ring in a boutique last week after I saw my sister wearing a similar one. It's made out of a Scrabble tile.

Bird nest was the theme of my monthly ATC swap group. This one is from Rachel at Not-So-Plain Jane. The quote by William Blake says, "The bird a nest, the spider a web, man friendship." My photo doesn't do justice to how beautiful it is. The colors have a faded, antique feeling to them and the background is thin netting.

From Deb at Garage Sale Gal, who decided on the bird nest theme. Deb is so talented at making greeting cards, tags, and collages.

From Cory at Pink Dogwood Blossom. It's so cute with the poem, feathers and bird background, plus it has a movable part ...


I bought these bird images at My Favorite Things for collages and greeting cards. Aren't those swallows just screaming for glitter?


I'm taking a couple extra days off this weekend and hoping to get out do some real birdwatching, as well as the thrift store kind.

Fun stuff. Love the ring! I just can't get enough of birds, bird feeders and bird nests. I could spend hours watchin the sweet birds eat at our bird feeders in Grass Valley. Have a jolly good day. hugs, dogwood

Thanks for your comments, everyone! I love owls, too, and I'm always looking for them when I'm outdoors. It is so rare to see them.

We have owls in our garden. Unfortunately i have disturbed a few of late as we clear some of the overgrown rubble on our land, but have noticed they are happily finding new homes. Your collection is adorable..love the ring too..:)

What kind of owls do you have in yard Debra? Oooh, you're so lucky. I used to frequently see them perched on treetops in a park a few miles from where I live when I'd hike there in the evenings, but haven't seem them in recent years. I have such a thing for owls.

I go through blog it's really good written. In fact, netting bird is an interesting topic to read. It has a wide knowledge about bird.. In fact, netting bird is an interesting destination i.e. covered by many websites. In fact
We bought bird netting too, I had a couple of small tomatoes ruined by birdie beaks. Early on there were a couple of nice peppers and a few Juliet (grape) tomatoes - but the hail damaged many plants so might not get any Black Krim tomatoes. I’ve thrown old basil seed around and still had it come up. Don't give up yet;-]
