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?
