The Birdhousing Bubble...

So, my little friend Peep O'Cheep has been asking me for a
bigger home...
Asking...more like nagging, so I have just been putting the
cover over his cage early every night to avoid the conversation!

He's feeling like it's time to start a family...
another conversation we are NOT having!
He's just a chick for corn's sake! I know he gets these
ideas from The WB!

I thought this was very nice!!!
And everyone is downsizing these days!

But he thinks he is going to take Lorenzo Llama with him...
I told him that Jane would have a lot to say about that...and if he
wants to see a 19th century writer flip her mop cap...just go ahead
and try it!

He was thinking more along the lines of this!
He's NEVER watching the OC Housewives again!

Poor little guy...he's a stress-eater.
So, I figured I'd better shake a tail feather and find him a new nest
before the fire department has to use the 'jaws of life' to pry him
from his cage!

Now I have these little birdhouses I bought from Oriental Trading
forever ago...not very impressive, but I just can't resist this kind of cheap

And Peep is not impressed either...
Oh! Did I get his dander up! He won't even look at it!
What a diva! It's not like he doesn't have his own issues!

He thought he was just Tweeting this to some bird in Seattle...
but he sent it to EVERYONE! This is what happens when you
over do it with the humming bird food! ;}

Well, I may not have Ty Pennington on speed dial...
but I do have The Graphics Fairy right at my finger tips!!

A little whitewashing a la Tom Sawyer!
And a bit of a roof update...
Bon Jovi! I think we've got it!
He was hoping for something with a view?
{he is this close to becoming a mcnugget...I swear!}

Again...I'm no Andrew Dan Jumbo...
but I made it happen with one of my previously made terracotta pots!

Well, I'll be a cockatoo's uncle!
I do believe we have a winner!
He says he likes it's Tangled vibe!

Oh no!!!!
That "tweet" has come back to haunt him!

There's goes the neighborhood!!!!

  7. Seriously, you are a comedy genius. Are you this funny all day long? I think I may need to move next door to you.
    (How did you get those little birds to stand up with the bird-sized china on their heads?)

  11. Well, I'm still laughing at this sweet post. You tell a great story and could almost be a children's book writer. Love the little birdies and with the teacup hats and the birdhouse too.

  12. Great post. Love it!. Enjoy the week.

  13. I sure enjoyed your "Days of a Tweet's Life" saga...and what a cute condo for the family!!!
    Have a beautiful day!!!

  14. Fickle little blighter, isn't he? Managed to get himself a very nice home there, persistence obviously pays off. But you want to keep a close eye on him, some of those visitors look like rather attractive females....

  15. You mention your muse, your mention your wine.............I read a lot of detective novels and am seeing a pattern here! Please share the brand of wine you imbibe, I want to play with birdies in litle teacups etc. too!!!

  16. what a fun post! i just love those little chicks and teacups!!!

  17. i want to hang out and play cups 'n chicks (said in a fab british accent), too!!! love those pics the best and of course the project is lovely but cups 'n chicks rules!


  18. Oh, you must have had so much fun doing this post! Ha, that is one finicky bird -- I don't know where is flock found all of those cute little teacups.

  19. What a sweet and fun post. Thanks for the lighthearted laugh. I have to tell you I went to the craft store for scrapbooking paper. Well I have to tell you somehow a bottle of pink paint came home with me to..I could resist...Heavens, I think you are to blame. Love your pink! LOL

  20. I don't think I have ever seen such a cute post! Totally adorable, and the new home is fabulous the way you did it up!

  21. Seriously M...how do you come up with this stuff??? You are hilarious. I've said it before, but I go right for a diaper before I read any of your posts!!!
    This is way to tweet!

  22. OK, it took me a couple minutes to stop laughing. What a hoot, said his owl pal. I think he likes his new digs and as such he won't need that darling white bird cage now. I'll give you my address for its new home. ha ha. Enjoy your week.

  23. I'm still laughing- where do you get these ideas? So funny!

  24. WOW!!~ this little bird has tweeted his way ....

    WAY over the Pacific Ocean to AUSTRALIA..

    I love him/her & your post..

    too cute...

    he/her is MOST welcome to come & live in our "gum" trees with our native birds as I think they would embrace a "newcomer" with no tweets attached!!...~~
