B is for BIRDS!

Among the trees
Is a bird's nest,
And in the nest
Her three eggs rest.

And in each egg--
Hush, you'll be heard!--
There lies asleep
A tiny bird.

H.N. Bialik

Browsing through Etsy, you will find birds are some of my favorites.

A pair of sweet vintage bird figurines from ModishVintage.

This checkbook cover from tinymeat is awesome! It features a Hermit Thrush on bright yellow vinyl.

Finally, this Tiny Lovebird Ring from ShereDesign is just too cute for words!

A is for APPLE!

I'm pleased to announce a new weekly feature that I am adding to my blog...Alphabet Soup. Each week I will pick a word that begins with the letter of the week and highlight some fun products from my fellow Etsy sellers that showcase that item. This week's item is Apple!

This print by LilyMoon is titled "When I wear my red skirt". I love how the red really pops against the neutral colors.

This children's apron by Dapper Duds is perfect for mom's little helper! So cute!!

This apple mint soap from thymeformyself sounds so refreshing! It has blend of fresh citrus orange and fruity green apple with just a little dash of mint thrown in.
