Things with Birds on Them

20 Jan

I’ve been on a bit of a bird jag lately. I just bought this lovely blackbird brooch from Alison Milner:

Now I’m contemplating ordering the crow too. He’s so wonderful in a scraggy and sinister way.

And last summer I bought this seagull picnic rug from Anorak:

The problem is that now I’m seeing birds on things everywhere, and I want them all!

Look at this gorgeous 1950s wallpaper. You can buy it framed or unframed from AllPosters, but I’d like a whole wall of it:

So perhaps I’ll go for the pigeon wallpaper by Algo Mas Interiors:

Or this gorgeous Pavillion Birds Eco wallpaper from Greener Abode:

Or should I think smaller (and more affordable) and order this painted bird tea towel from Bottle Green Homes?

Or this stunning cushion from Dotmaison:

Or this one, again from Bottle Green Homes:

But I think I’m most tempted by Acorn & Will‘s lovely little plastic bird brooches. I want a whole flock!

Is it wrong to want to get married again so I can have an entire bird-themed wedding? No, I didn’t think so.

    Love the tea towel and cushions… I’ve some great bird stamps from Cox and Cox for decorating a card or envelope.

    This is a great post – I love bird prints! Love the tea towel and am jealous of your picnic blanket… And I have made a mental note to be wearing my bird print dress next time I see you!!

      What is this bird dress of which you speak? Have I seen it?

    GREAT post – I love things with birds on too. I particularly like owls at the moment. Are you on Pinterest? You’d love it…. http://www.pinterest.com

      I didn’t know about Pinterest! Thank you so much! As if I need yet another web site to be obsessed with! 😉
