Bird brain



Right, well this didn't turn out exactly as planned but it was quite fun experimenting with the idea... 
I had been looking at animals that collect things for my collecting project and came across Bower birds which line their nests with blue objects that they find, in order to attract a mate. As it happens I already have a very nice mate, but for the sake of research I decided to line my "nest" with my collection of turquoise objects! 

What do you think, would it tempt you? Just a little bit...?

I am tempted! :) Is it bad to visit the nest and then take some of the items with you? Say....that clock, that cup and that bowl? :) I am so happy I found you via Holly today, what a lovely blog you have, and beautiful work in your shop!

What a fun idea for a photo! If anything was going to tempt me, turquoise would be it. Is that an antique little clock in the middle? Old clocks tempt me, too.

Heehee! Melissa perhaps stealing from the nest is not quite the right etiquette....! But yes Victoria all the items are mid-20th Century - such was the criteria of my collection, so I could understand if a few items went missing... :)
