    Blue Birds & chic-a dee's

    Since everyone enjoyed my avatar so much thought I would share with you what I did with these fabric bird panels, I bought cheap pic's at my local dollar store took the backs off & framed these fabric bird Panels. They measure about 20 X20 ...yes I love birds! Enjoy! Sorry about the flash glare!

    Love your pictures! We are avid birders here! See bluebirds and chicadees every single day! The bluebirds love to take a bath in our birdbath - I am guessing that they are the juveniles as they are playing in the water - much like toddlers human babies do.

    Gorgeous pictures. I made a wall hanging with colorful birds on it. It was a piece of fabric. It brightens my dining room.

    I'm a bird nut too. I make homemade bread for the sparrows and chickadees and put out raisins for the robins. Love to watch them on my back patio! That is a fabulous fabric print and you did it up wonderfully.

    The Chickadee is my favorite bird - It is around all winter and gives its little call checking out for me! If you listen very carefully it says "Edie" "Edie"! That's me! They're looking for me!!!! It's always been the Edie bird in our family! Go figure!!!!!!!! Anyhow, just thought I'd let you know what the Chickadee truly is. A Minnesota bird looking for ME!!!!!!

    What a great idea.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    It's still a bit too warm for the chickadees to appear here in southern California, but I expect they'll be here by January. I just love them!! I also have had "pet" bluebirds for a number of years. Here's a picture of one ('Buddy') in my hand. Many times he doesn't even want a nut. He just wants company.
