Please join us for shopping with a twist on Friday August 27th, 2010 as we present "Birds of a feather"
It seems like just a few weeks ago that I was awakened to the sweet melody of a robin cheerily singing it’s good morning greeting outside of my bedroom window. I knew spring had arrived, and the first of many feathered friends had arrived with that message. Spring and all of it’s glorious wonders was finally within reach. A time for new beginnings and rebirths.
As spring made passage into summer, the bird feeder just outside the kitchen window has been aflutter with activity. The trees that line the yard, a symphony of color and song. Brightly colored bluebirds and streaked song sparrows, flit between tree branches and perch carefully among the leaves. Serenading each other with love songs, others chirping loudly for attention from the lovely serenader.
Nests are built in every unclaimed corner. Under the eaves of neighboring homes and suspended from the tips of tree branches. Hanging baskets and old planters, a place that now becomes home.
No matter where we live, or what the season, our feathered friends inspire accessories and decor that create eternal springtime in our homes.
Beautifully reclaimed needlepoints, lovingly brought back to life and boasting the most divine of our feathered friends, adorn your favorite seating area. Bird cages, once used to house the most majestic of our feathered friends, now repainted and holding favorite plants or candles. Birds nests tucked carefully upon our shelves, filled with tiny eggs so delicate, they could almost pass for the real thing.
Perhaps we invite into our homes the same birds we see each spring as a reminder of all that’s fresh and new. A time for new beginnings, like the arrival of spring.
Please visit the boutiques at Make Mine Pink for ideas and inspiration about moving your feathered friends indoors, for a feeling of spring all year long.
