For the Birds!


birdhousesCan you tell I like birdhouses?  There are more than 20 sitting above the cabinets, each one different and most created by a talented artisan.  Every day I look at them and get a kick out of remembering the story that goes with each one.  

Now you’d think with so many fun and interesting shapes and sizes some of those birdhouses would have been used on the table.  Not so, but today that’s going to change!

Usually a table suggests a menu to me, but I’m having a little trouble with this one.  Bird seed doesn’t sound too appetizing, but what about something embellished with berries?  I better get to the kitchen and start studying some of those cookbooks!  If you have a suggestion, send it right on.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

  1. Your table looks so beautiful! It is fun to decorate with our favorite things. I really like the pretty color in those glasses. I’m here from the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop.

  2. Your creativity never rests.
    It’s amazing how you never just use white..maybe even use paper plates.
    You are so energetic and creative.

  3. Those placemats and napkins are beautiful, and I love your napkin fold. You would have thought that someone went out and bought all of these things just for this table. How perfect the bird topped cloches and the little bird vases are with your theme.

  4. I LOVE birdhouses, too! Thanks for sharing and for linking up to the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop at Katherine’s Corner. Hope to catch up with you again this week at the hop! Nina @ Vintage Mama’s Cottage
