We Put Birds On Things





I have totally fallen prey to this whole bird design craze. 
I have no idea why birds make things instantly cuter and quirky, but they somehow do! 
Put a bird on it.  Make it pretty.

We used to have a cockatiel.  He liked me and used to sit on the couch while I watched early morning cartoons.  He didn't like Syd so much, because she was little and used to step on his tail. We named him Woody.  We named our yellow lab, Simba.  Could we be any more lame with our pet naming abilities?  Or how about our two hamsters that we named Cotton and Candy.  Oh, that's rich!  We were not cool like a certain family I know who named their fish after characters from The Office.  That's pretty funny. *Shakes fist at disgraceful little girl self*  Steve. 

Anyway, back to birds.  Does anyone really like them?  Other than on their clothes, jewelry, bags, notebooks, and little figurines sitting all pretty in their houses?  Birds are having their moment of popularity.  Live it up, Birds.  It's bound to be short lived.  Then we'll all go back to thinking you're gross.  Eww!

We used to have a parakeet. Nasty little creature! I have mixed feelings about the bird craze. A little goes a long way.

I love birds, but I'm not allowed to have any because Gar hates them (they're too loud, he says). Also, they would likely be eaten by one of the cats. I like to watch them outside in our back yard. They're pretty hilarious.

HA! I feel the same way, I just LOVE birds! So carefree! So pretty! Such jerky head motions! So cute and fancy free!
Except for real birds. Ew.

OH, but as far as having bird decor, I also think a little goes a long way. My neighbors have a collection of rooster figurines all over their house. YIKES.

I'm not talking scary country bumpkin bird decor! And of course, it is all in moderation. Can you imagineif someone was wearing the bird necklace, shirt, bag, cardigan! Can we say bird lady from Mary Poppins singing "Feed the birds!!!!" Ahhh

I'm pretty sure Miranda told me about some "bird lady" in Denver last summer. She even started a whole facebook page about it.
