Birdy Bird

Birdy Bird

Friday, April 24th, 2009


My mom has these little birds that are nesting in the range of her stove. I know that sounds weird, but you can hear them. They aren’t inside the house or anything, it’s like they live in the exhaust pipe system. (you can tell how much I know about home construction…nada) Anyway, you can hear these little babies chirp when you’re in the kitchen. It’s sweet. That side of birds I like. The birds I don’t like are the ones that traumatized me as a child, Hitchcock’s version. Ever since I’ve been a little ‘on the fence’ (pun intended) about how I feel about birds/birds in nature/birds as pets/bird motifs/bird wallpaper/bird related things like nests/bird anything. Help me decide, are birds hot or not?

I’m not very feminine in my decor tastes usually, but these birds are so pretty….love the drama of the black background.

When I was in India, I fell in love with some original botanical drawings of exotic birds and fruit of India. They were painted by British artist James Forbes around 1813. On a backpackers budget they were slightly out of our price range, but I’m still thinking about them today!

Humm… what do you think? Birds cool or uncool?
