Antique Bird Finds

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post over on my author blog about my antiquing finds. Because they are all bird-related treasures, I thought I'd share what I found in a little more detail here on Wings and Daydreams.

First off, is the wall canvas I found. I instantly fell in love with the cute little bird and his nest.

The best part of this piece is how the gold leaves "glow" when you look at it from a certain angle. It is truly a 3D piece of art!

Upon closer inspection, there is some sort of cursive letter written behind the bird. I can only make out a few words of it here and there and the mystery of it only adds to the appeal of the piece.

My favorite, most useful piece, is the shabby chic ottoman I found for my office. It is perfect for use as a chair or a table, but my cat has claimed it as her own and doesn't like to share!

Here is an up-close look at the pretty bird fabric on the padded seat...

 ...and the distressed legs...

Lastly, here is the bird journal I found. It was only five dollars (*gasp!*) and will be handy for jotting down my birding discoveries.

I look forward to filling its pages with my fascination of all things with wings. And maybe a few daydreams, too.
