Bird Figurine Series - # 9


      Many years ago on one of  our trips to Kingston, Jamaica's capital, Janine and I could not resist this bird candy dish. It immediately became a part of our collection.  Strangely enough no candies have ever been put in it!

Happy Thursday, Judy!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Veronica! Have a great Thursday.

Paula Miller said...

Oh I love! For some reason this looks very familiar to me. One of my grandparents must have had something similar when I was growing up :))

This also reminds me of something my Nani had at one point in her house. :) it is so cute! I have just started putting candy out in little dishes around the house. You have so many treasures and beautiful memories! I love all you share, Judy!!
I hope today is a wonderful one and that the weather is beautiful. We have been getting rain and clouds here lately but it is definitely cooling off. Wishing you a great one and sending lots of love!!

Thanks a lot Maria! I have seen the wonderful pictures of your friends and their children so the candy you put out must be a real treat! I wish I was nearby!:) We have been getting some well needed rain but the sun still shows its face often. My Thursday has started well. Do have yourself a great day and weekend. Lots of Love & Friendship to you, Steve and Beano!

It's beautiful !
Quite different from the other items I've seen so far from the collection

Thanks Winnie! Have yourself a good Thursday.

Sandee said...

Well, it doesn't need to have candy to be beautiful. It's beautiful all by itself.

Have a terrific day Judy. :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

So true Sandee!:) Have a great Thursday.

What a great candy dish. My mother had seven candy dishes in her house. I know this because the grandchildren went around and counted them. My mother heard them take the lids off as they looked inside. Everyone was filled with Scotch mints.

AntiquityTravelers said...

Love your chicken dish ... reminds me of my mom, and that makes me smile -- thanks for that

Wayne W Smith said...

That is a really fun dish all its own. It doesn't need candy. Thanks for participating in Thirsty for Comments Thursday.

Theresa said...

Oh no, as a huge sweets lover, I insist you put some candies in there at once lol.

It is a lovely piece Judy!

Heather Smith said...

What a sweet little sweets dish!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks retired not tired. It is wonderful that your mom had 7 candy dishes. Those Scotch mints must taste lovely.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Heather. Enjoy the rest of your day.

I am glad this dish brought back memories of your mom AntiquityTravelers. Take care and enjoy the rest of your week.

Judy Haughton-James said...

I am here laughing Theresa. If it was not in a display unit I would definitely have some sweets in it. You bet I would be taking that lid off quite often!:)

Nekky said...

This candy dish is very cute Judy. Having this figurine full of candies will make me not resist the temptation of eating more than enough candies... Have a nice weekend.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Nekky. If I put candy in it for sure it would be opened very often!:) Have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks a lot Katherine. Have yourself a wonderful weekend.

Angela said...

I like this one! My grandmother had one, except it was a light pink. She never put candy in hers either. There was a look but don't touch policy.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Angela! I had to smile when I read that your grandmother had a look but don't touch policy with her pink candy dish!:) Have a good weekend.

Hi

I collect coloured glass and just love your chicken candy dish. I had one many years ago, long before I started to collect coloured glass and mine was not as pretty as yours - it was clear not coloured.
I used to put eggs in mine, not sure what it had in it originally, if anything?

First time follower via GFC through Harvest Hop.

Hope you can find the time to pay my blog a visit sometime.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for becoming a Follower and sharing your comments Michelle. I will follow back. Enjoy your weekend.

Sparkle said...

I love it!!! I could not put any candies in it to not break it... I'm a little clumsy. It's been a long time I haven't read any blogs. I hope you're ok
Have a nice week end ;)

Camille said...

I actually had a dream last night that I went to check your blog to see if there was a cute new bird figurine posted! Lol. :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Hi Sparkle,
Thanks a lot! It is great to hear from you again. Take care and have a wonderful weekend.

mail4rosey said...

It's very pretty. Will you put candy in it now that you've mentioned you never have? :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks mail4rosey. It is usually in a display unit so candies may not be in it for awhile. Maybe one day when it is out of the unit!:) Have a good week.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Melissa! I hope your weekend has been going great. Have a wonderful week.
