They Must Be On My Wall! - Creative Monday Blog Hop

      Show me an item featuring a bird and I am always so thrilled. Many persons know that I am a big bird enthusiast and of course they include relatives.  I was so happy when I received a package containing 2 beautiful embroidered birds made by my cousin Marlene in Massachusetts.  I could display them in several ways but immediately I decided that I would get them framed for my living-room wall.
   I have never seen a cardinal in real life but I think it is such a beautiful bird. I have cardinal figurines and have seen pictures and cards featuring this bird. Now I have a picture of a cardinal on my wall!
    
   Blue is my favourite colour so it is great to have a bluebird picture. In addition the bluebird is associated with happiness and I certainly need a good dose of that!

Thanks for the invitation - have entered, but there's not much to see, except for a little square in the entry block! However, if folks click on that - ALL will be revealed.

Not sure why it worked like that this time - but technology is a mystery!

All the best. Isobel - www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.om

Thanks for linking up Isobel. I am sorry that all that is showing is a little square. Technology can certainly be a mystery. Nevertheless I hope you get visitors. Take care and have a great week.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Winnie! It was really nice of my cousin to make them for me. I just had to get them framed!:)

Kim Vealey said...

Thanks for the party Judy. Your cousin did a fantastic job embroidering those birds! Cardinals are on of my favorites, too! I always love seeing them in the snowy winter trees. Have a great week!

You should come to Oklahoma in winter to see lots of cardinals. They are beautiful and so showy especially when it snows.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Oh how I would love to see them in the snow Rhonda! I have seen pictures and it is a wonderful sight.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Marlene certainly did a great job Kim! I am so glad to have these pictures on my wall. The red cardinal in the snow must be an awesome sight!

Sandee said...

They are beautiful Judy. Having them framed will protect them too. Excellent idea.

Have a terrific day. ☺

Thanks Sandee! I am happy that they are protected in the frames. Enjoy the rest of your day.
