Birds of a Feather

As you may have guessed from my blog title, I love birds.  This obsession started when I was planning our wedding and wanted their cute little feathers everywhere.

When we were in Nashville last week, Eric took me to this awesome shop called Pre to Post Modern.

I found myself in quirky vintage heaven.  I also found myself a precious new framed print for $15.  Two owls, side by side on a branch. Cute as pie. Eric approved and I walked out grinning from ear to ear (especially thrilled because when I brought home an embroidered owl from my garage sale adventure he just laughed and shook his head). 

I would love to take a picture for you, but I can't upload anything since our camera cord was resting in the laptop case when it was stolen.  Hopefully we will replace it soon and I can show you a few recent projects. 

In the meantime, my bird adoration has shifted to include owls and I am finding them everywhere.  A few of my favorites are below.  Enjoy!
