Look what I got!

I have been having a discussion with Katherine (Sew Me Something Good) about birds. You see, pigeons have been waking her up and she is trialling pigeon scarers. I'm not a pigeon fan, but I love birds. (Miss 22 thinks this is her ticket to getting a bird as a pet. Not so. I like birds in the same way that I like flowers. I like flowers in the garden. They make me sneeze once they get inside the house. I like birds outside in nature, not in my house.) Today I went to Woodside to visit the patchwork apple and another shop that I love called Country Elegance. I discovered this lovely rubber stamp set of birds in Country Elegance and I bought it! All the stamps featured on the lid are inside the metal box along with an ink pad. It is so sweet. Right now it is so lovely that just looking at it is wonderful. At some point I might get the stamps and ink out and try them. Not today though. The box is enough for now!

ooooh those are amazing stamps! I need to look for those. I love birds - well all birds except for Jason's African Gray parrot named Birdie. I hate him. But all other birds I love! Speaking of Birdie...I would be more than happy to spend any amount of money to ship Birdie in his cage with his food and all of his toys to you tomorrow for dear dear Miss 22 Just say the word and he's on his way!

They are some great stamps! The one in the oval I've seen used several times in magazines and on other peoples blogs. It's a great stamp.

Oh, what lovely stamps in such a pretty tin, Kris! I think you'll have all kinds of creative fun with these.

Update on my pigeon problem... the windchime is no longer scaring them off. :^(

The tin is really lovely, I think I would have bought it even if there were no stamps in it.

mmm, That is a lovely tin. Such a sweet shade of blue and the bird images have a great nostalgic theme. Lucky you!
You're right birds are at their most beautiful in their natural habitats.

My Dad breeds pigeons! I love to see birds in the garden and not cooped up in lofts and cages though. The tin is gorgeous and just the colour of the paintwork in our sitting room. I would love to make gift tags with the stamps. x
