Something That Is One Thing, But Should Have Been Another Thing!

I have rarely met a birdie that I could resist!




Especially when he comes with his own nest!





Isn't he adorable!
But I knew, just as soon as our gazes met, that he would never be used for his "intended purpose"!





I don't really like to have the paper towels on "display"...no matter how cute the holder is! They need to be out of sight until the nest time the cats decide to show me what they just ate! Ewww!





This is what I had planned for my fine feathered friend as soon as I saw him!





A glorified ribbon holder/catch all!




Poor guy! His little neck is really getting a workout!!!





A little of this....





a little of that...





and more besides! He's fun & functional and he was $3.95...Cheep! Cheep!

Hurry over to Cindy's for more SHOW & TELL FRIDAY !

  21. Great use of towel holder. I hate paper towels out and being seen also. Just one of those picky things. I love the ribbon idea.

  22. How adorable! Oh, I think he is much happier displaying all your treasures instead of a roll of paper towels!

  32. I LOVE him! I'm sure he's so much happier with all the pretties around him than the paper towels!!! I can't believe what a great deal you got!

  33. This is just too "Tweet" for words! A great creative use for an otherwise utilitarian object. It is just loaded with bling and fun stuff! And doesn't that adorable little bird engraved spoon look sooo at home there?!?!
