Blue tits finally framed.

After humming and harring on what background to use for the 3 embroidered blue tits picture. I initially chose a painted blue background, but after leaving it for a day thought it was too bold/bright for the birdies.
As I had a piece of wallpaper which is a more neutral colour and lets the birds be the thing you see and not the background!
Here they are hanging next to our little dresser, which started life as a place to display our jugs, but now other bits and bobs have managed to squeeze in!

Still on a birdie theme.....we needed a couple of bookends and found a couple of rocks that were similar in size to make a matching pair of owlets.

                                                     Starting to see little faces appearing.

                                                            Both doing a very good job of holding the books upright.


They had a short flight outside and decided that if ever they are going to be outside birds this is going to be their new nest. But for now they think the warm and dry table is the best place to be!

Their mum came to see they had settled in well before flying off and making her home on top of the front wall.

Out for a walk in the middle of rush hour.....mind the traffic Archie!!

  1. Loving all the birdies...
    I must say I liked the blue tits on the blue background, but i know that's just me and my love of bright colours!
    The Owls are amazing, they are fabulous, I regret not picking up some big pebbles from the beach now!

  2. I like the muted background best for the birdies, the blue, although a great colour, seems a bit vibrant for the subject.
    I adore your owls, I love painting pebbles, they look as great with the books as they do in the tree. :)

  3. Aw what a lovely post. I agree with you on the paler background for the birds. The bright blue is a beautiful colour but not quite right for the birds. Very cute owls too, especially when they flew outside to find a possible nest:)

  5. Oh Archie looks like our walk 'in the rush hour'. Painting pebbles seems to be back and must admit used to love doing that, may pinch some from the garden, paint and then put back.

    Think the birdies picture now has the perfect background.
