Building An Army...

Who knows when or how it began...
My journey into grievous greedishness and selfishery!
{that whirring sound you hear is Mr. Webster spinning in his grave! ;}

I feel like despot...a tyrant...Saruman...or was it Sauron...{am I the only
one who thought that the Lord of the Rings films would have been a bit less
confusing if one of those guys had been named Biff...or Skippy even?}

But let's get back to me...

Somehow...I began recruiting, inducting...conscripting!
A little Michael's here...
A little Cost Plus there...
A dash of Marshall's, TJ Maxx & Walmart!
And now, to my shock and awe...
I have built an army of whimsical white birdies!

I know not what their function is quite yet...
but we will soldier on together, adding to our numbers as we go.

Because, seriously...WHO CAN RESIST THOSE LITTLE FACES???!!!!
{NOT ME!!!!! ;}

White Wednesday @ Faded Charm Cottage
Good Life Wednesday @ A Beach Cottage

{Lorenzo Llama & Jane just wanted to say "hi!"}


  1. Those are some cute birds. I have the salt and pepper shakers from Pier1. They spend a lot of time looking out of the china cabinet and once in a while gracing a tablescape.

  2. hey... i adore those white birds with the crowns... did you get those anywhere near yorba linda??? I want some =)

  3. Oh, I'm with you on this one... you did the right thing by not passing up on those white birdies... after all, they might be "all out" next time you shop there! You can always do a "rent a white bird" for weddings, showers, etc.... lol Happy WHite Wednesday! :)

  4. As cute as your little white birds was Jane and her Llama that made me laugh out loud!

  5. "It all makes PERFECT Sense to me"...YOU SEE...The same group lives at my house!!! One can never have too many of those cute faces.

  6. And here I thought I had purchased entirely too many little birdies lately. You make me feel much better! LOL!

    I'm hosting a meme this Sunday called "Where do you keep it all? - Part 2". It would be great to have you join in the fun!

  7. Never too many birdies! i have the large one of the crowned birds - never was lucky enough to purchase the smaller one - if your ever up for selling one - please let me know!!! xoox, tracie

  8. OH, I love them too!!! They are great and I buy them every single time I find them!!!

  9. LOL! Something tells me that you & I would get into an awful lot of trouble together!

  10. <3 your "army," and your silly perspective!

  11. Thank you for making me giggle.You always do.Winged minions are very useful in any battle don't you think?!

  12. I love those birds with the crowns from Michaels. I have a few myself. So adorable and irresistible!


  13. I like your birds' helmets/crowns as well as I like Beefeaters hats - its a look.

  14. I'm with you I LOVE white birdies! I dont have quite the fabulous army you do but know how addicting those sweet tweeties can be ;-)
    Thanks for sharing some of your collection!

  15. Ahhh, these are darling! So cute.
    And I have one of those sweet birdies too, thanks to you. :-)

    I still have a post coming up about that fabulous giveaway of yours that I was lucky enough to win!

    Happy Wednesday!

  16. I can't even pass by a little birdie without taking one home with me...not to mention the hours I spend taking pictures of the ones in my garden...I thought I was the only one...

  17. tweet, tweet! Those little birdies are so darn cute.

    Hope you're having a great week & Happy "Good Life" Wednesday :O)

  21. Well, I just love the birds with the crowns! Love the canisters, too! I know I've seen the crown birds before ~ was it Michael's? I'm planning a trip there Saturday morning, so I'll have to look.
