Bird Figurine Series - # 10

      Janine and I were always fascinated by the colourful Rainbow Lorikeet.  Over the years it was often featured on the many Australian postcards and calendars that we received from pen-pals and relatives. You can therefore imagine how thrilled we were when we got this wonderful surprise, a figurine of the bird, from our Australian cousin Christine.

How pretty! It kinda reminds me of my lorikeet feeding experience in Currumbin, Australia. The birds were so colorful and friendly!

Happy Thursday, Judy!

Hi Judy: What a beautiful bird... what did someone call it a figurine? I call them nik-naks, which I'm a total nutcase over nic-naks! Guess my mother did that to me. She loved the dolls from George Washington Days me I just like anything different. I also have a brass collection & like I said anything different. Have a great weekend!

MikiHope said...

What a beautiful figurine--so colorful and bright-would love to see one of these birds-never heard of them before!

Judy Haughton-James said...

I love how it's head is angled. Figurines I've seen usually don't have style like that!

Hi Maria,
It was so good to receive this lovely bird all the way from Australia. Janine and I made so many crochet mats over the years. I need to have a go at it again. I am fine and wish you, Steve and Beano a wonderful weekend. Lots of Love, Friendship & Best Wishes always!

Never heard of a lorikeet but it kind of looks like a big parakeet.
