I will put a bird on it, thank you

I like birds, and I like and things with birds on them, and if that makes me something right out of a Portlandia sketch, well that’s a hit I’m willing to take. Is this watercolor not divine? It’s by the artist Ann Faison, whose stuff you can see here in Vermont and here in Los Angeles. Also: you can see more of her work on her website.

Laura Zindel’s black bird plates are the exactly right kind of creepy.

Three little Hugo Guinness birds, just as charming as you please.

Well exactly how have you managed to get by this long without a little birdie lemon squeezer, I ask you?

This rose gold James Colarusso bird charm is just a tiny little rough-hewn slice of heaven.

I’d like to believe that one day when I am very old, and have proven myself to be a performer of a great quantity of good deeds to many, somebody will reward me with a black porcelain Nymphenburg bird.

And from The Mad Platters, which is one of the best Etsy stores going—especially if you’re into melamine, which I so totally am: this woodpecker on a melamine plate that, at $18, could not be more of a steal.

As far as actual birds go, here’s a feeder that’s almost too pretty for the outdoors. (And for more lovely bird feeders, as well as bird houses and baths, check out my pal Cynthia Kling’s fantabulous and very stylish guide on Beso.)

    “Put on a bird on it!” Teehee.

    There’s nothing funny about how I do want that lemon squeezer.

    Post holiday blog request/story idea: Making the best of returns to stores you’d never ever shop in, but you’re stuck with. Or, what does one do with a $100 credit to Land’s End? Or Sears?

    Tanya, you can swap those cards for almost same value ones you will use…,, – there are quite a few.
