Bird Songs

More birds are arriving daily.
I hear them singing outside my windows.
On the way to my car in the morning, I hear them singing in the trees
and I want to turn back around and stay home to listen.


Soon they will be nesting.
I'm wondering what trees they will choose,
perhaps the front porch again this year.

In the meantime, I am enjoying these beautiful handmade joys from
Elizabeth's Etsy Shop,


Thank you, Elizabeth!
I love my "nesting blocks" and bird songs banner!

Wishing for warmer temps and steady sunshine,
to get that snow all melted
and make things cozier for our returning feathered friends
and for those tiny little buds on my apple trees.
Have a magnificent week friends!

We are enjoying hearing the birds also...your treasures are wonderful and I am inspired to do more with some of my old sheet music.

I am in love with your sweet bird treasures my friend...so perfect for you!
Thank you for your sweet visit. I am sorry to hear your sweet Jason is heading away very soon. Yes..we must treasure all the moments.
I am thinking of my Molly...she is safe and sound in Norway this morning. Off to Sweden in a weeks time to School but will be home at the end of May...that will be an exciting time.

May your day be filled with small joys my friend. I am nursing a sore back today...so my Spring Break plans are on hold..hope for just a day or two...love and hugs xoxoxooox

I love the adorable cut-out birds by Elizabeth. Thank you for your kind wish for steady sunshine, but we are under a winter storm warning in the mts of CO, and it also snowed in the city. (Sigh...)

Elizabeth made some unique and sweet blocks, Maria. I love the banner too! It looks rather petite, so so cute.
You displayed the blocks pretty with the white birds.

I read over at Francis' that Jason will be moving to Texas. If I am not mistaken, Texas is not quite next door to NY. Does lovely Jason know about that, hee hee
You enjoy every precious moment, sweet sweet Maria. On the other hand, I am sure you will.

Well, I am off to bed early, I wish there were more hours in a week....

Love the nesting blocks and bird songs banner too, Maria!

Farmgirl Cyn said...

We have had lots of sunshine the past few day, but very cold temps. Makes no matter to the birds, though. They are singing their little hearts out! We also have tufted titmice for the 1st time! So dang cute!

Wanda said...

Oh what wonderful treasures. Love the music, and the birds...yes the lovely birdsongs that brighten our days.

A wild yellow canary showed up in my feeder today... it was a gift from above as it sang its song. I hope he comes back tomorrow.

Indie.Tea said...

Lovely :)
There are more birds at my window now too...my cat likes to watch them (and probably thinks horrible, but natural, things about them too)....

Doreen said...

Hi Maria!
I love your new birdie decorations! How we adore our little birdies. A great welcome to our feathered friends and bid farewell to our winter juncos.

Bela said...

Elizabeth said...

Good morning precious Maria! Thank you so much for stopping by with your kind words. I love my harp! And I also enjoy the birds. They have finally decided they were going to come and start singing amidst the cold temps. But our snow is finally melting away and soon we shall have robins making their nests in our garden. Last year we had the pleasure of watching MRS. ROBINSON make her nest and give birth to two BATCH of children!!! It was such an educational experience. We are fortunate to have a little SPEAK EASY window at our front door and we had front-row-center viewing night and day. She just stared our way and keep hunkered down!

I LOVE YOUR BIRD THEME!!! Enjoy a lovely day, Anita

koralee said...

Morning my sweet friend...thinking of you today. xoxoxo

Marg said...

Good Evening...I'm coming here tonight just to feel that calmness before I nestle down...
I was just enjoying the beauty and artistic bent that you display while you write...absolutely inspirational to my soul after a busy day at work.
Now I will lay me down to sleep and wait for those morning tunes to waken me...I've heard there tunes also.

Diana said...

Oh the birds are just flittering and fluttering everywhere here. And the songs are just beautiful.
Hope your weather is getting warmer Maria! Love Di ♥

Stacey@A Sort Of Fairytale said...

oooh, i love these blocks!

you asked how i painted my kitchen cabinets and i could not respond via email, so i will tell you here...

i used a roller and a brush. i was worried with the roller at first not being smooth, but when it dried it was fine. just get a foam that is for smooth surfaces.

thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
