Crazy As A Loon

The other day, I received this fabric in the mail:

The last straw.

I had ordered a yard, so I could really see what it looks like. As opposed to a sample, which are sometimes too small to be helpful. For some reason, when looking at the fabric, I became aware of the fact that there are birds all over my house!

Birds on pillows:

Birds on a rug:

Birds on dishes:

At least the husband is half responsible for this one, as he helped pick out the china!

Birds in artwork:

As I was writing this post, I thought of several more items featuring birds. The thing that scares me the most about this, is that I did it without intention. It is true that birds are a big motif in home fashions right now, but it’s not like I was FORCED to buy stuff with birds on it. I feel that I must state to those of you who know me personally: I AM NOT COLLECTING BIRDS!

Merry Christmas from The Crazy Bird Lady who didn’t realize she was the The Crazy Bird Lady until recently.

    I too have birds everywhere and some of the art is more than thirty years old – which is probably why I have recently been selecting bird pillows and dishes too, subconsciously. Its a good thing I don’t have cats!

  6. That is too funny. I must say that I love every fabric, print, and plate you have! I too, noticed a pattern in my decorating that seems to appear everywhere. It is stripes. I had no idea how much I chose stripes when decorating until I bought an area rug for my son’s room and then noticed it was a little much when placed next to the striped comforter and window treatments. Ugh.


  7. Regardless…IT ALL LOOKS BEAUTIFUL !…. I too had to put a few birds away… they are every where I look..
