{A Bird's Christmas}

so, a little birdie told me that he wanted to be part of my Christmas!
and when i saw that he brought several of his birdie buddies along...
i decided to find a way to make them all at home on my Yuletide

i got these two situated first...

this guy has a bit of an attitude as you can see by his face!
he insisted on being high above everyone else so he could
keep an eye on things and make sure they were all minding
their p's & q's! so, i created a vintage book perch just for him
and a nest of paper shreds in a GGG incrusted pointe shoe.

this little guy wanted his little feet firmly on the ground...
poor thing is afraid of heights!

now Meshach...

and Shadrach...

well, they had served in the military and wanted to put their skills
to use guarding the tiny Christmas tree and the words of good cheer!
and a fine job they are doing! i've had nary a thief, tagger or kitty in the

and let's not forget the silver tweeter twins...
they like nothing better than to check their reflections
in the vintage mercury balls...and each other!

while Abednego scans the perimeter...

danger lurks around every corner...or, as in my house, just sits in
the window sill, bold as brass!

then everyone had a place and a purpose and birdies from thither and yon
let out a joyful cheep because the big tall lady would now be getting back to
her flaming hot cheetos...and quit messing with their tail feathers!
{i just wish Meshach & Shadrach would have told me to move the middle
frame to the right, just a tad...before i took the pictures though! ;}
