Ya’ll all know I am a few eggs short of a full nest. Especially when it comes to one of my obsessions – birds.
I can’t help it.
They make me coo-coo.
I have quite a little collection of ceramic birds in our den,
and three bird cages (1 not shown and 2 of which need a little spraypaint action),
I drooled over my mother’s Christmas tree last year,
and I even made some bird art in honor of our state tweeter.
And yes, I get my fair share of teasing from friends when they enter our bird-themed home. Of course, there are the basic ‘did you catch the avian flu?’ jokes and ‘little pecker’ jabs but that didn’t stop us. Actually we like making fun of ourselves too. My personal favorite bird themed item was a very special avian deviled egg plate – fondly referred to as the cockadoodle plate – and boy was it devilish.
Here’s a visual:
That’s right. Not just one. But TWO dirty words on one plate…if you look at it right. Sadly we had to retire the plate to a recent yard sale because of too many questions from this little one. My spirits were dashed. Until recently. Just this past week, Pottery Barn lifted my spirits and made me feel like I was the feathered queen of the world.
That’s right…in their new catalog, Pottery Barn featured birds out the wazoo. Everything from home decor to dinnerware to big beautiful birdcages took centerstage and in my humble opinion, stole the showfeathers.
There were birds cages,
and even accessories for a bird-ilicious tablesetting.
Basically it was enough to make my heart flutter faster than a hummingbirds’ wings.
So tell me – are you into the birds as much as I am? Because it is a borderline internet offense how much I am on Pottery Barn’s website with all these great bird-themed items. Any favorites? I am seriously lusting after those pillows that look like they are painted but are actually finely stitched to resemble the nest. And those woven chargers that look like your plate is nestled into a birds nest? Holy hot chicken tamole. And those wire bird cages…yesthankyoupotterybarnIwilltake17please. Or maybe you are completely obsessed with something totally different…say horses or colored glass jars or silk pillows?
Whatever your obsession – spill your guts…except if its cockadoodle plates. You get zero points. You dirty thing you.
