This is for the birds!

That saying reminds me so much of my husband’s  now deceased Grandmother.

She was a real character and would say “this is for the birds” often.

So it gave me a chuckle and I thought of her on this post.

It all started with this pretty little bird tea towel.

While browsing Marshall’s one day.

I love it, so in the cart it went.

Then there were the cute little dessert plates I spied next.

I am onto something I thought, this is for the birds!

then I spotted the vinyl bird wall decals.

So all three are now in my cart and I seriously had no clue what to do with them.

Decal: $12.99


tea towel $3.99

So for less than $25.00, plus a $10.00 coupon = $15.00 of clueless home decor.

When I came home, looked around….it was the obvious choice.

Needless to say…I love it!

Believe it or not, Mr. Mike does not mind it either.

I love the fact that I can change out those plates per season to reflect the same.

Hope you like my “this is for the birds” too:)

    What a great bird trio you found. Those plates are just adorable, I have never seen a pattern like that. You will get lots of use from them. I can see them at a party now. So glad hubby liked your new look.

    Love the way you change per season. Everytime I read your blog you inspired me. A little change with a GREAT mind like you, a home becomes a santuary from time to time.

    I grew up hearing my grandmother and mother say “This is for the birds!” I think I still say it on occasion and my children think it’s funny. This post certainly brought a smile to my face!

    Your little birdie collection is adorable, Debbie! I seem to be a serial collector (not cereal collector…). Somehow I’ve managed to start an ironstone mini-pitcher/ creamer collection over the last couple of weeks. Those darn thrift stores! :)

    Cute little birdies….I just followed you on twitter and pinterest. How on earth did I not know you were on either of these??? Yay. Do you have an Instagram?

    I love your bird silhouettes above the windows. Rally cute. Where in the world did you find a coupon for Marshall’s? I’ve shopped there forever and never seen/heard of a coupon for there. I know you’re busy, but would you mind responding to my quewstions? Thanks!
