And Louise Body, a wonderful wallpaper designer, makes a pattern called "Garden Birds" that I'm very fond of.
And this little beauty was making quite a plea for my breakfast when I was lucky enough to go to the Serengeti last year.
We have two kittens, so birds aren't an option for our family at this time. But bird FEET are.
Made of gunmetal-plated pewter, they're a perfect combination of morbid and adorable (at least I think so). And perched contentedly on my windowsill, they just make me chuckle.
