Put a bird on it

Please take a couple of minutes to watch the following video. When I saw it, I died laughing, because I am one of those people who thinks that everything looks better with a bird on it.

There are many many examples of things that I can share of things that I own with birds on them, but here are a just a couple of examples:


Right when you enter our driveway, you see this pretty sign with birds that my sister Kris made us for Christmas (she also puts birds on everything).

Even kids look cuter with birds added to them. I added this crow to Sofia’s shirt. Of all of the things I could have put, a bird just sounded like the cutest option :).

A question for all of you Oregonians that the video mocks.. do you like adding birds to everything? Is it an Oregon thing, or do you non-Oregonians love birds on everything as well?

I’ve seen this before and thought it was so funny! I didn’t realize that there were people actually like that!! ;) Your birds are definitely cute!!

I just about died the first time I saw that video! It’s so true for me – I love birds! I made a girlfriend of mine a knitted hat, and I appliqued a bird on it, and now we call it the “Put a Bird On It Hat.” I’ve got bird necklaces, shirts, water bottles, prints on the walls…it’s gotten bad over here. Whatever – put a bird on it!

Adrienne,
It is not a joke. We really do put birds on everything. I have bird necklaces, headbands, pictures hanging on my walls etc… I just ordered Sofia a dress with birds all over it :). The reason that it is so funny, is because it is so painfully true :). Amanda, I forgot about my bird water bottle as well :). Haa.. we will have to compare our bird collections sometime!

You know what is funny? Eric and I just watched almost all of the Portlandia videos last night. Check out the “Is it Local?” You will laugh, I know you will.

Yes Cherie, you know me. I loved that clip and showed it to many people. I wonder how long that show can go. I mean, how many things can they find to make fun of :).

That is just weird. I have never even heard of birds for decor. I don’t see whats so cute, sorry!

It must be an Oregon thing. I don’t see birds anywhere here as decoration….but for you and for Oregonians it’s cute!!

Okay Kara, Amanda, and anyone else who cares. Check out some of these. I can’t even contain myself, they are so cute…

and on and on…Etsy LOVES birds.

I have to admit that I actually own this laptop bag http://etsy.me/ivAds4 which is nothing more that a bird on a plain bag. I kind of love it.

and for the record, I don’t even like real birds. Seriously, I’m almost as bad as the Portlandia couple. It’s kind of pathetic.

Haaa Camille, I’m actually not that into real birds either. Oh, and bye the way, all of those items are adorable :)!
