Most of you know I love birds. One Birdie, the red lored amazon, is sitting behind me as I speak, trying to break the hair clasp out of my ponytail. No romantic interpretations there. I think bluebirds are used decoratively more than most birds. I guess because they are so pretty. In fact, they are quite shy. Rarely do you see them at the feeder, preferring instead to eat bugs and such from the field. Nevertheless, they are beautiful and worth a watch. Here are a few bluebird things I have. Notice the small plastic potted plant thingamajigs. Perhaps they were for a teeny potted vine.


  1. I've said it before, but it bears repeating...you have some of the most wonderful collections. I bet your home is a treat for the eyes!
    I've never seen a real bluebird...it's a secret wish of mine to.

  2. We have two bluebird nests on our porch and they are a flying around out there all the time... I love watching them except they constantly try to fly through the big half moon shaped windows on top of the french doors?? We can not get them to quit and I am terrified they are going to get hurt?? Hope all is well, Iam going to rest, I have finally ran out of energy! Have a great rest of the week, Janna

  3. Absolutely love bluebirds, I do believe they are my favorite.
    They have taken over the "See Rock City" birdhouses and have raised their young inside for the past three years..
    Love the plates and cream pitcher.

  4. Hi Donna,

    Sorry I have not been by in a while, congrats on the new grandbaby. I was sick for so long and did not think I would get over it. And now in a few weeks going in for my shoulder surgery and will be recovering for over 10 weeks.

    Too much pain and too many days of being sick. I am finally back to trying to go visit everyone every few days, and trying to clean house before surgery. I am so unorganized. I love the blue bird pics.

    God bless.
