Here are some more examples of the big bird love that permeates our house.
The mama bird feeding her chicks is a very recent find, isn't it sweet? Her nest is currently high above the aloe vera on my windowsill.
I particularly love the pattern Acapulco by Villeroy & Boch, which was inspired by colourful South American prints, with the glorious bird and flowers motif originally used by the company in 1977. I have some cups,saucers and plates that I'd like to display somewhere prominent.
The plump brown bird with the blue beak I spotted a few years ago in a charity shop, it was night-time, the shop was closed so I spent an anxious evening before I could return to claim her. She's Columbian and hardly any trouble to look after.
The tiny die-cast robin looks very seasonal next to the giant pine cone doesn't it?
