Decorating With Birds - Creative Monday Blog Hop

     For many years my twin and I decorated our home with bird calendars, pictures, figurines, wall hangings etc. I have continued to do so. This week I share some of the ways that we have decorated our home with birds.  Every year we have a bird calendar. I love the beautiful Golden Whistler that is featured for May 2013 on my Birds of Australia calendar. David Messent Photography did an excellent job sharing  several birds.


      Our bookshelf  is decorated with birds.  This is a special bird picture for me as Janine and I bought it many years ago when we were on a shopping trip in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
          
    There are also bird wall hangings. Here are 3 of our favourites that came all the way from Austria.

Hi Judy
Thanks so much for the Bird Link Party. I linked up my post on Fighting Breast Cancer. If you get a chance please come over and read the post. As a registered nurse I feel that women need to be informed and then hopefully will use the information and get a mammogram yearly. May is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Best
