The "smallest of things" Can add just the right touch... BiRdS!*!*!

Year of the BiRd!???  I've been bird cRaZy for a long time...  ~ I'm seeing sooooo many new displays in stores with a birdie theme already this year...  Pottery Barn has a wonderful table setting with them... I love their "nest like" place mats...  "Tag" Brand has the sweetest little Platters etc. with birds...  But Nothing Compares to Adornments with ViNtaGe Birds!*!*!   Here are a few of my birdie autograph books/booklets...  (click on pics to ENLARGE details... Comments are appreciated!)


The smallest of things can add so much...   I used small "flower frogs" to to prop up these darling little litho birdie booklets...  The Flower Frogs work well for standing up so many things ~ old post cards, seed packets, pictures, advertising cards etc.




OMG!*!*!  This is my most favorite old "authograph book" ~ last 1800's...  The birds have dimension to them ~ and are a little bit chippy!!!   Just Sweet!*!*!




Another vintage autograph book with a gorgeous gilt-gold bird cover...




The colored litho pages inside this autograph album are absolutely The BeSt!!!  Lots of flowers & birds...  Today's printing cannot compare...

  1. Hello Jeanine... All of your vintage birdies are so cute! I too love and collect all things having to do with birds... my love of birds began as a child...my grandmothers taught me all about birds, their nests, etc... remember the old Barbara Mandrell song "I was Country When Country Wasn't Cool"? Well, I was "Birdies" when "Birdies" wasn't cool! Sounds like you were too! xoxo Julie Marie

  2. I love that gold album. What a treasure!

    Without even realizing it, I have a fair collection of birds myself. It just kind of happened.
