~ Congratulations Mrs Bird ~

We have babies. I suspected yesterday we might have but today I can actually see them and hear tiny chirping. I wish I could show you photos but I haven't been able to get a good photo and don't want to disturb her. I know she is a honeyeater but there are many types of honeyeaters and I am not certain what type she is but I do love how has shared this wonderful act of nature with me and I have spent a lot of time watching her sit on her eggs and now tending her babies. I love how the gentle breeze rocks the nest and it reminds me of a baby in a cradle. Very cute. Thank you Mrs Bird :)

Recently, I was very lucky to have received this gorgeous scissor keeper and fob from a very talented lady who creates the most beautiful works of art. You can see her beautiful work here.
Just Lilla ~ Lilla lives in Hawaii and makes all kinds of beautiful vintage works using gorgeous velvets, silks and lace. I really just love that Olde Worlde look. What a gift to be able to create like that. Thank you so much Lilla.

I have been stitching but am not able to show you my recent finish yet. Next time though.

To me, the garden is a doorway to other worlds; one of them, of course, is the world of birds. The garden is their dinner table, bursting with bugs and worms and succulent berries.

  1. Well done Mrs Bird and thank you Chrissie for sharing the story. We currently have some sort of honeyeater coming into our pergola a couple of times a day and gobbling up any insects there. She is lovely and I look for her every day.
    The quote you used at the end of your post is new to me but I loved it.

  2. Please pass on my best wishes to Mr & Mrs Bird (there has to be a Mr too), I hope the cradle doesn't rock too hard. Gorgeous scissor case, you lucky girl.

  3. Congrats to the Bird family on their new additions. :) How wonderful it must be to share this moment with them.

    The scissor fob and keeper are so pretty - how talented Lilla is.

  4. Glad the little ones are doing well. It must be fun to watch them. We understand about the pics ~ don't want to scare mum away.
