Finds For Bird-Lovers

First up today, in my "birds" category is cute and colorful hand-painted rooster, made in Portugal:

I bought a grab-bag full of buttons and other miscellaneous things, but all I was really after was that beautiful "Bluebird" card, front and center, in the picture below:
I found this little guy, who will be cute incorporated into springtime or Easter decorations:

I also like the "Bluebird" card. My friends gave me the Jonathan Livingston Seagull book in 1972 when I was in the hospital having back surgery. I always liked it and still have it but I haven't read it again in years.

Nice finds. I like those star buttons. I am fond of bird song CDs, I have about 8 or 10 of them. Love T
