Have you seen the Trend Alert in the May Elle Decor?  Birds are everywhere.

  I love decorative birds like the images above.  Sometimes they can be too cute and crafty for me though.  Where do you stand on all these birds?




                             This video is from Portlandia and is making huge fun of the bird trend.






Happy Friday!

I've been oddly drawn to birds myself, lately! But I'm with you.....not the crafty, cutie birds, but sophisticated birds....and I'm very particular about how beady their eyes are. They better not seem like they are watching me!

That video is so funny. I am glad to see that birds are still fun to have. My laundry room has a sign that reads "laundry is for the birds".

Darn, I only had a few minutes to flip through ED yesterday, so I did not see this. I would not say this is a new trend though. I like birds in moderation. They are on my chinoiserie curtain panels but I don't seek out things with birds.

I've never seen that show before but I have to watch. HILARIOUS! And I have, indeed, found myself putting birds on things lately... or at least buying a few.

Really, you're not seeing more of them than usual? BTW, your curtain panels are beautiful!

I am drooling after looking at all of these images! Wow, to have the wallpaper and mirror on the wall on the china on the table! A girl can dream:).
Have a wonderful weekend.

I laughed out loud at this video!!! I think birds go well with all things chinoiserie, and since chinoiserie is so prevalent now, I guess it makes sense that we're seeing more birds! Thanks for sharing the hilarious video!

Give me some chinoiserie wallpaper with a bird here and there and I'm a happy girl! :) Love the Portlandia video btw - such a funny show. Have a great weekend!

Some fly right into my decor heart & others can just flutter away as far as I am concerned. Am loving peacocks right now. Love them in toile/Chinois patterns for sure.
