Bird Lover's Tea

"Sweet bird!  thy bow'r is ever green,
 Thy sky is ever clear;
 thou has't no sorrow in thy song,
 No winter in thy year."
-  John Logan
Sharing a few of my birdie dishes for A Bird Lover's Tea

"I hope you love birds too.   It is economical.  It saves going to heaven."
-  Emily Dickinson

Gracie China.

 "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."
-  Anne Raver

Snow drops from my garden.

I just love this book I found at Joann's Fabric and crafts store.
Tilda's Studio by Tone Finnanger.
 The whole book is just brimming with eye candy.
Included is a pattern for this sweet Tilda doll.
Isn't she adorable?

All of the photos in the book are absolutely gorgeous. 
Pretty bird tags and fabric cut out birdcages.
I wish I could show you everything but
 then this would be an awful long post.

"Spring would not be spring without bird songs."
