Happy Wednesday, everyone. I hope your week is going great so far, and that it continues right into the week-end. If you're like me, and I know some of you are, you're in the middle of redecorating a room, finishing a project for posting next week, and trying to make sure there's a meal on the table for the family, all at the same time. But here you are, ready for another fun day of blog- hopping to see what has been made, purchased, or transformed since you were last here. I hope you find many new ideas and set your sights on another wonderful goal that will make your home and your heart sing!
Today, I was torn between two "parties", White Wednesday, and Featherd Friends, so decided that I would join in on both, since my contribution to the party is not only birds , but WHITE birds!
White Wednesday, brought to you by our lovely hostess Kathleen at http://www.fadedcharm.blogspot.com/ , where you will find a long list of WHITE lovers, and isn't that everybody? Those of us that love cottage style decor have scads of white to share with you. Even though it isn't considered a color, per se, white is always a winner in any room of the home, whether in upholstery or in accessories. You will always find a place for white!
The creative and industrious Gina at http://www.theshabbychiccottage.net/ is bringing us Feathered Friends, for those of us that love birds...isn't that everybody, as well? She also has long list of participants, so you won't want to miss any of their beautiful birds! Do any of you have a hummingbird feeder? My sister has about 6 on her deck. When I was there last week, we sat outside and watched them flutter furiously as they gobbled the nectar. I didn't know that there were so many species, with different colors and markings. One particular bird made me laugh...he was "gargling"! He would get a beak full of nectar, and hold his back for a few seconds, as if garling...I couldn't believe it! They are so cute!
You won't want to miss either of these great parties. There are so many beautiful and unique things to see, you won't want to leave early!
I only have two birds to share with you today, as I was a little unprepared, but I hope you like them.
Now, I know at least two other bloggers have this teapot, and I'm not surprised, since so many of us are Home Goods shoppers. I'm pretty sure that this adorable teapot is sold elsewhere as well, but I don't shop any place else...except maybe Marshall's and T.J. Maxx! Their prices are so good, and they're always getting new things in almost daily, it's just fun to go look, even if I don't buy anything...and that hardly ever happens!
I don't know why, but for some reason, if I try to enlarge my pictures, they become blurry, but if you click on them for a full screen view, they become clear again...very strange. So, I'm leaving them in the smaller size so they won't hurt anybody's eyes, but if you want a close up, just click!
I don't know if this pretty little bowl was supposed to be part of the set, but it looks just like the teapot, with the basket weave styling. I did see a two-handles covered bowl as well, but it had a small chip on the bird's beak, and there wasn't another one. No problem...I'm perfectly happy with two of these sweet birds.
I really don't know what I'm going to put in this bowl. I had some little cards in it, but they looked so lost in there. So I put a few lemons in it, but they looked too big and bulky, so I took two out and put some clippings from a potted plant I have, just to see if I liked greenery in it.
No...I don't think so. Any ideas?
I hope you found these pretty white birds as pleasant to look at as I do. Now I'm off to visit Gina and Kathleen for more inspiration and eye candy. Won't you join me on my adventure?
Have a wonderful week, and may God bless you all! Don't forget to keep "living in the pink!"
And don't forget to continue praying for our country and our troops. We can't forget that our sons and daughters, brothers, dads, and uncles, are there and they still need our prayers. Every now and then I visit a blog that has a young man's picture posted on the sidebar...I believe his name is Jordan...who entered Heaven this year... every time I see his picture, my heart breaks...for him and his mom. I will always remember Jordan...I want to remember them all. Hold them in your hearts, dear blogging friends...I think they can feel it.
