Bird Nerd, part ad nauseum

I can't help it. Birds make my heart pitter patter. Which, I guess, is why I love bird tassels. It seems to me that y'all do, too, since almost half of my tassel sales have been bird related (either birds, nests, or roosters/chickens). Which is why I'm sharing my two newest tassels listed in my Etsy Shop:I lurve these colors on this brown bird tassel. The bottom fringe looks more brown than burgundy, but it's really brownish-burgundyish. I totally made that word up.

Then there's this fun black and gold little dude. He's just plain cute.

If you needed any more convincing that I'm a bit of a fanatic about birds, let me remind you of my Christmas presents last year...Got Crow Creation's Mini Felted Titmouse. I cannot get over how cute this little dude is. PLEASE go see how wonderfully talented and creative this girl is! She crafts such beautiful little birds, one of which is smaller than a dime, nest and all! I may have to ask for another bird from her this year. They are so reasonable, too, at just $12.

Sadly, I can't find the Etsy shop where my next bird-nerd gift came from...evidently they have closed up shop, which makes me sad, since she did beautiful pendants...I get so many comments when I wear this. "That is SO you, Heathahlee!" Is what I hear most often. That makes me smile.

And of course, my Susie Harris sign.I do love her and her stuff! I'm so grateful to say I can call her a friend in real life.

Okay, enough bird talk. For now. When I give Kat's daughter, Fep, her birthday present, I'm sure I'll add that to the list. Oh, who am I kidding? I can't wait to show it to you...I just hope Fep doesn't see this...It's a horrible pic but it was taken in horrible light with my phone. I wanted Kat's approval and for some reason haven't taken any pics with our regular camera. I hope she loves it. I sure do!

Another reason we're meant to be friends! lol I have this bird lurve, too... It really is a lot of fun, isn't it? :)

Kat said...

GIRL! What are you thinkin'? Now, supposin' Fep coming's meandering through as I look at your blog (which could very possibly, very easily happen)? Now, I will not be able to look at your blog until she gets her gift....unless it's like early:30 in the morning like now. I guess were pretty safe at 5:30 in the morning ;)

Very pretty, Heather! Your tassels looks great ~ as usual! : )

Richella said...

I guess you are a bird nerd--but that's part of what makes you wonderful! :)

HeathahLee said...

Thanks, y'all! Kat, I took a chance, but I just couldn't wait! I'm sure I'll take pics when I give it to her. : )

Those are all so cute Heather! I love the black and gold one that's not usually a color combo I'm fond of. Can't wait to see what you come up with for fall!

Oh my goodness! My 5 year old daughter is obsessed with birds! As I was reading this, she gasped and exclaimed how cute the little one in the nest (I think you said it was a Christmas present) was! Your things are beautiful!

Your bird collectables are so cute. Makes me want to start of collection of something cute and whimiscal. But what? Hmm...

happywife1999 said...

Oh my goodness, I just looked at your etsy shop. Love the tassels! Especially the beaded pumpkin one, which I think I must have :) Question, can anyone give me ideas of what they do with the tassels. What do you hang them from/on? Thanks!

HeathahLee said...

happywife, girl, you can hang them from anything that will sit still! : ) My favorite place is my china cabinet, my second favorite place is from my floor lamp switch. Any lamp switch is fair game, as is door knobs, dresser knobs, shelf knobs. Like I say on Etsy, any place you want a little bit of beauty.

The pumpkin tassel sold this morning but I can make another one for you. Just let me know. : )
