I Might Just Be A Crazy Bird Lady, Part 2

I was so excited to get my Vintage Bird Swap package! The funny thing was, the person who I had, had me! She sent me such a lovely package full of birdie goodies! Check out the embroidery from the 20's or 30's...

I hope she loves the bird stuff I sent her as much!

Here's the package, and one of my favorite things I found for her was this box of bird stickers. Hundreds of old stickers (the kind you had to lick).... I got them as a lot on eBay of old stickers I'm guessing a teacher had or something. Her name was Miss McBride. From the lot I won, there were 4 little boxes full of this tiny stickers- stars of many colors and birds.

Any guess as to how old these might be????

I found more evidence that I have some kind of strange thing for birds...

Yes, that's a Posie Cagelet! I love that one.

Even here, at the sink.

Look where else I found birds! On our dinnerware! I never even noticed.

Well, I guess I do have some kind of weird thing for birds. At least it's not something really, really, really out there! Who would want that many eyes looking at you all the time? :)

Hope everyone is doing well!

:) Yep, it is official--you ARE the crazy bird lady.

Just kidding.

I do love the cagelet, by the way.

And birds are supposed to be the big trendy thing right now anyway, aren't there? So really, you're just ahead of everyone.

Coleen - I loved your bird package!
Especially those beatiful little gummed birds :-) I am so pleased you liked my package and as I was buying my kids little yellow bath ducks, I thought I would add one to your package (lol). Please stay in touch. Paula (UK Girl)
