If you asked me, I'd tell you I'm not crazy about birds.
If you asked me why, I'd maybe admit to you that they scare me.
Always have -
I blame it on seeing " The Birds " at too young an age.
Or that on a night out once, my date brought me back to his parent's house and left me alone for 5 minutes while I watched an Amazon Parrot - HUGE - deftly take his clawed foot - open the cage door - and come towards me at an alarmingly fast pace ( walking - not flying )
Or that I once stepped outside my house - to see hundreds ( and that is not an exaggeration - hundreds and hundreds in fact ) of crows lined up on every possible wire - limb - roof top in the vicinity - silently staring at me ( or so it seemed ) It was an overcast day and the image has been tatooed on the back of my eyelids forever....................I later learned this is how they grieve when one has died.
A little too Edgar Allen Poe for my taste.
And some of you may remember my first experience with Grackles last Spring - a bird I'd never even heard of until we moved here - and of which I'm dreading their return - you can see the post on that HERE
Or Mr and Mrs Duck that came for a little dip in our filthy pool HERE
Which is why it's strange that I happen to love bird decor.
As in my pillows..............
Or other decorative items
The night light is from TJ Maxx - 4.99 - my daughter brought it back for me from Florida - love love love it
Anyway all this to try to explain to myself and to you - why I just ordered this......................
I don't get it either.
Don't even have a clue where I'll put it - but I find it enchanting for some reason.
Have a wonderful Tuesday one and all
