I'm like a little bird...always bringing things back to my nest

Did you ever..?

I've never found any of those cool trophies that I see on other people's blogs or in antique stores. But today I was in a little shop and noticed these trophies from a bird show!! As a child my father showed our dogs and they won trophies, but I never heard of parakeet competition!! That is what sits atop these beauties! Trophies are cool and birds are cool, so does that make these a hot item?? They crack me up, so I bought them (for a very small sum!). Then when I got them home and took a closer look, I really cracked up...on the large one is engraved, "2nd Best". Don't you love it?


  1. Those take the cake as the coolest trophies I have EVER SEEN. I have never run across bird ones before..ever...something new for me to hunt for. You scored girl!

    ps. my word verification that I have to use to leave you a comment was the word POLLY - as in "polly wants a cracker" had to share!

  2. That is so cute, 2nd best. I love your vintage fan too, white ones seem to be hard to find. Have a great weekend!

  3. Love,Love,LOve the bird trophies! Way cooler than a cup! I agree, that fan is sooo cute! Have a Wonderful week~

  4. I adore trophies and have never seen bird ones! What a beautiful find!
