Why Would I Post About A Pillow?---

---Same reason I'd post about a bird...

...because I'm being influenced too heavily by HGTV and other stations that broadcast celebrities and their "favorite things" segments on certain shows.

I went around my house and photographed some of my own fave things. This accomplished two missions - 1) it gave me blog material and 2) it gave me practice using my camera and a realization that I "need" another new lens.

I'm only showing you the pillow and the bird. Those are randomly weird enough.

So about the bird. I call it "dear little bird" because sometimes I like to talk like a little old lady. (Sometimes, when I'm 9 months pregnant, I also end up moving like a little old lady, but that's another story...) Who uses the word "dear" anymore, really?

This bird drew the attention of my dear little friend Julester when we were shopping in a dear little curio shop near my dear little home once upon a time.

We each bought one. Difference between me and Julester is that she went home and had a perfect place to stick the bird, whereas in my knick-knack-free, vacuously-decorated home the dear little bird is hopelessly lost.

HGTV sucks. It just makes me realize my many decorating shortfalls, one being that I have no place to put my bird.

HGTV does suck! It makes me feel like a big loser. As does Better Homes and Gardens Magazine (which my mother-in-law just renewed my subscription for the 3rd year in a row!!!) My Pottery Barn catalogue which is free and in my mailbox every other day is bad enough!

I feel bad enough about my decorating skills without watching any TV shows, thanks for the warning! I have a butler's ashtray I think it is called. I got it when my grandmother passed away and I remember playing with it at her house. It reminds me of the times there and the era she was from. I don't care that it doesn't go with anything, I love it!

I love your little bird. But that's exactly why I never buy knick nacks for my home, b/c I don't have the eye to just place things here and there and make it all work together. I'm probably the only person in my larger neighborhood area that doesn't have a ceramic lizard hanging on the wall, and I don't have a single Kokopelli image anywhere in the house, treason for the SW.
