Count me in! Love your birds! I collect birdhouses.

I'm having a giveaway too... a vintage apron. Come see my show & tell over at http://anapronaday.blogspot.com

Rebecca said...

It's always spring at your house. Love your collection! Oh, and I'd love for that little bunny to come live with me.

TJ said...

My goodness! I swear that when growing up my brother and I had 2 parakeets that looked just like the bird in your photo! My second parakeet (the first leaving us very soon after arrival) was green and yellow and I named him Bert. My brother's was Stupendyke (he escaped and flew into the ceiling the very first night of our bird ownership, and was never quite right) the name came from my "Grandpa" Willie (who showed me that love is far more important than blood or legal documents).

My children would love for Bunny to come stay with us! Be sure to visit my blog next week for a special celebration and giveaway!

Bunny Chic Boutique said...

Oh I love your collection of Birds, especially the Bird in your Painting!

Of course, your Bunny would be among friends at my House!

Have a "hoppy" weekend ~

What a lovely collection of birds you have Betty. I especially like the ones that perch on your lamp shades; they are so cute! Here we get more and more birds both inside and out.

The Bliss team just whispered in my ear that the cute bunny should come and live with us because we have carrots! And lettuce and many other nice things for it to nibble on. ;-)

Almost your 300th post eh? Quite a feat that!

Have a lovely weekend!

Hi Betty! I love all your birds. The love bird plaque is so charming. Love birds are one of my favorite. Right now we have a mama robin that is trying to set up her nest and she's a little confused because she keeps pecking our brass kick plate on our front door. They are interesting creatures...

Wow! Almost 300 posts :)
Cute bunny!

Judy said...

Count me in. I love your Cardinals, but then I am pretty partial to them.

Hootin' Anni said...

The birds are terrific. I'm especially fond of the one on the lampshade...how EVER do you keep it from slipping off? And the Cardinal in the frame...that is my favorite bird.

Mine's posted, tho quite eclectic today. Hope you can find time to stop by if you haven't already.

Happy weekend.

[that is the cutest bunny!!!! What a great prize]

Heidi said...

I love your bird collection Betty! They are wonderful creatures and I can sit and stare at our bird feeders and the busy rush to eat for hours.

Congratulations on your 300th post! I am so glad you found me a while back as I have also enjoyed my visits with you.

Hugs ~
Heidi

Congratulations on 300 posts. I love your bird collection. My favourite is the cardinal up on the shelf. Have a great day.

jennifer said...

The blue bird on the lamp shade is my fav.....like a little surprise sitting up there! Jennifer

Constance said...

At first glance, I thought those parakeets were real! We have a cockatiel in our house, a noisy one named Squeegy who thinks he's a human with feathers. I had parakeets growing up and I love the chirping and whistling in the house. It's perpetual springtime!

A woman after my own heart. :)

I love birds. I have had a number of them throughout my life. Right now, I have Henry (an orange canary) and Pippin (a yellow parrotlet). They bring such happy song into my life.

I love all your little birds. I can not choose which one I love the most.

I would very much like your garden bunny to pay me a visit. I promise I will faithfully feed him lettuce and carrots. I shall even slip him some sweetpeas from time to time.

Blessings,

Gina

Betty,

I love all of your birds. That iron bird is quite unique and I suspect it is vintage. The bluebirds and cardinal are also lovely. I would have a hard time choosing a favorite, as I enjoy birds of every species.

I am extending an invitation to your little bunny to come and live at my house and he can live in my garden. He is adorable.

Enjoyed my visit, as always.
Blessings,
Mary

Hiya Betty.
So wonderful to see so many wee birds around your lovely home. Hubby and l are bird lovers too and have so many wee birds in the garden. We feed them through the winter months as best we can. Your hubby did nice job on the shorebird!

Oh please enter me in your give away...that bunny looks so adorable....oh and I love your birds...

Sue said...

Betty,
Your little birds are so cute. Thank you so much again for all of your encouragement. We are happy to have Aaron home. He has many hurdles to face yet but by the same grace that brought him through SJS God will see him through his recovery too. Praise God for his faithfulness.

We will continue to pray for Ronald and a please give our best to his family. I'm not sure if I mentioned it before, but Aaron's father sent through a similar situation in 2002 which gives us empathy for what he, his family and friends are going through.

Hugs,
Sue

Hi Betty,
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment about my LuRay! Your spring display with birds and bunnies is very refreshing to see after the winter's chilly months...
