Bird Decor at Mary's House

OK, so you have seen her incredible tea parties here and here and even co-hosted this amazing one here.
You know of her being the most frugal designer I know.
But you haven't seen much of her incredible decor yet,
 so today I share just a little taste of her love of bird decor.
Be still, my heart! This gal loves pretty bird stuff!
Let's start with one of her best hand painted and signed bird plates.
Yes, yes, that's a pretty yellow finch.  Sigh.
I absolutely love this lady and her bird fetish stuff!
I mean we were always sisters in the Lord, Tea Society sisters,
 and even sister in cats....

........but who knew we were also
sisters in BIRDS as well!!?!???

This has birds and kitty and Mary.
Mary's kitty died a few months ago and went to live at
~~~The Rainbow Bridge~~~
She realllllly misses her sweet kitty.
Sniff. Sad Face.
Romeo says get a rescue kitty, MD, because they're awesome.
But I digress.
Let's get back to All Things Bird and stay the course, shall we?
To be honest I knew Mary likes birds,

but I had absolutely NO idea she was totally
The Queen of Tasteful Bird Design!

Oh, and she throws in Fleur de Lis too, touches here and there.
I would love to win the lottery and send her to France for a nice visit.
I think I have France on the brain, just yesterday I posted about
Well, no, that's not quite right, I posted about PINK
and it just turned into a mini Versailles post, haha.
These pics are just a small example of what she has
just in her living room, to show you what I mean!
Pretty much in all little spots all around her house
 one will find nifty bird things.
She works in seasons and holidays too!
I think next time Mary comes to visit me she will
feel most comfortable in my Aviary guest room, don't you?
WOW us Wednesday

Vintage Thingie Thursday



  1. Wow...everything is so pretty! I love birds, too. I'd really like to do a "natural" Christmas tree with birds and birdnests, etc. Thank you for stopping by and the support! How is Romeo doing??
    Hugs, Cindy

  2. very beautiful indeed. Bird decor is one of my favorites.

  3. Delightful post! The birds are beautiful.
    Thanks so much for stopping by, Mary Alice

  4. Love all of Mary D's bird stuff, she is very talented with birds and Tea!

  5. Hi Michele
    Yes, definitely birds of a feather and I didn't show half of my stuff. Cute kitty frame that Mary has and I like all of her feathered friends decor. You are blessed to have such a wonderful friend.

  6. I am a bird lover too and SO enjoyed this post! :)

  7. Such beautiful things in her home, Michele. If I went around and counted how many birds or nest things I have decorated with, I'm sure I'd be surprised. I did that one year with clocks and snowmen, at Christmas, and couldn't believe how many I had. Because they were all spread out throughout the house I just never realized.

  8. I love bird things...nests, eggs, houses, and birds themselves. Your friend Mary has a delightful collection and, yes, I'm sure that she would feel right at home in your guest room.

  9. I also have several bird figurines. Thanks for sharing your friends great collection.

  10. I think there are a lot of us out there who have a 'thing' for our little feathered friends! I have birdies all over my home too. My son is studying Wildlife Conservation Tech. and we are having the most interesting conversations these days. He brought me home a wee bird's nest the other day that he had found out in the field. I love your friend's teapot with the birdie perched on top! Loved this post, Michele. Have a delightful weekend, my friend.


  11. Hi my friend,
    Great post. A real treat for the eyes, as I loved all the pictures!!
    Thanks so much for sharing.

    Hope you have a great weekend.


  12. Is this one of your friends Mary that decorates with the birds? I really like birds and I decorate with birds and birdhouses. I have a med. size white church birdhouse I keep on the floor in my formal lv.rm by my small marble lamp table. Hard to find the "right bird" at times. Then I go on a blog and find what I like and wonder where they got the signs, birds, etc. thanks


Thank you, friend, for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one of them. Your thoughts are appreciated!
