Birds Nesting Here

My friend, Diane at A Picture is Worth A Thousand... hosts 2nd Time Around. She's a creative and crafty lady. She finds what some may think is not worth much, and paints it or tweaks it a bit and creates a thing of beauty, function, and/or value for her home. If you'd like to join in the fun, click on the link.

Diane is influencing me! Last week, we spotted a thrift shop and decided to stop in. It was clean and well organized. When I inquired, I found out that they had just opened this past June. I'm sure I'll return.

I found these cute birds for only $1.50 each, but on that day, they were 50% off. I paid $1.50 for both of them! They're flawless, and I'm glad that they've nested here.

Oh Sally how beautiful they are... Doves the sign of peace... I bought a beautiful pair once and gave one to my girlfriend...She has since passed and when I see my dove it brings back so many wonderful times... Thanks for the memory... Have a peaceful day!

What pretty little birds, Sally. You just never know what treasures you might find in thrift and junk shops!

Hi Sally, I am happy you have discovered the fun of thrifting. A good find on those pretty birds. I'm glad they didn't fly away into some other home to nest.

Hugs...Jeanne

What a great buy you made.

Wow! That must have been fate! Those are beautiful birds ~ I'm sure they will be the perfect addition to your home!

Hi Sally! I LOVE these sweet little birds!! What a lucky find, and at a price like that!! I am so flattered that you liked my blue flag, and I am still thinking of joining in for Blue Mondays, but my computer is a very old horse. It's so slow getting through a Pink Saturday, that I don't know if it can handle a Blue Monday so soon thereafter! I'd love to though, and am still thinking on joining in sometime. My dear daughter is thinking of getting a new computer soon, then she would give me hers... which is at least a newer model than mine!.. We'll see what happens there! (0; Have a good night!

Cathy said...

Aw, They are so pretty, Sally.

Sue said...

I love your little birds. Morning doves, perhaps? Whatever they are, they are so pretty. :-) Sue

Susie Q said...

They are so sweet! I have no idea why but the names Lulu and Albert popped into my head when I saw them! *laugh*
I am so glad they have a sweet home with you!
Love,
Sue
