Two little dickie birds

Image via tumblr

Thinking about the two little love birds about to tie the knot tomorrow, I thought I would share some images of birds that I rather like. I didn't realize it until a few years ago but I do seem to have a thing for birds and have gathered quite a collection over the years.

A rather fetching seagull that I purchased from T.K.Maxx and then my husband knocked off the table and he lost the end of his beak poor fellow!

A dove purchased from the garden centre to complete my Christmas mantlepiece.

Can't remember where I got my little sandpiper.

This handsome fellow is from a book I have on old needlework.

A little Tilda creation that I adapted.

The three images above from the wonderful graphics fairy

My lovely decoy duck I bought at auction many years ago.
Aaah how cute!

The above images are from tumblr

I hope you will be watching the royal couple tomorrow. I am going to my sisters for a girly day with my sisters and neices. I have made a flag cake which I will show you later. Have a great day whatever you are up to, with love Linda x.

  1. Your little birds are very cute. Lovely images and I am so going to nick that crown picture from the Graphics Fairy - aren't her vintage images just the best!

    I am sitting glued to the telly already, dressed and ready for the day - well almost - we have family coming round to watch the wedding with us and then we're having a BBQ and I should really set the table and do a few kitcheny things but cannot drag myself from the excitement on screen. Silly me. ;)

    Enjoy the day.

  2. Dear Linda,

    Just watched the Royal Wedding on tv. What a beautiful event. I enjoyed watching every minute.

    Your 'Love' birds look sweet!

    Thank you once more for your sweet comments. I enjoy them very much. I had a look at the blue and white Copeland Spode you mentioned. It is really pretty!

    Lieve groet & happy weekend,

    Madelief x
