A Favorite Thing

I am joining Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage
for her A Favorite Thing party. This shelf was part
of an old mirrored cabinet that I was given from my
late father in-laws garage.
I'm afraid the color isn't quite true on the photo. It
is definitely more of a pale robin egg blue. It holds
my ceramic bird collection, which I plan to continue
growing. But I'm cheap! The most I've paid was $6.
for one.
Anyway, it's a 'favorite' thing because I think of my
FIL whenever I see it. And of course, I love my little birdies too.
If you'd like to share your own favorite thing, pop
over to Claudia's and read how to join the party!


  1. I still love your bird collection every time I see it. I like the vintage feel to it all")

  2. I think that is the sweetest shelf. I think it is so pretty with all of your birds.
    I hope everything stays cheap. You know how things become collectable and then it just goes sky high.
    I bet you are so happy to be back at home with your things.

  3. Love that shelf!! But that little embroidery towel you can send my way. Have a great day today!!!

  4. Combining both cherished possessions makes for such an heartfelt display. Beautiful!

  5. That's so sweet! I like the shelf, the sentiment and the birdies.
    That little embroidered towel or dresser scarf is not too shabby either. ;) Pat

  6. Love it!
