Unfortunately, the birds flock together in my sunroom, which is appropriately named. Please excuse all of the glare and the reflections.

If you are here to link to Favorite Things Saturday, please copy and paste your “Favorite Things” post title in “Linky Tools” below. (MckLinky has changed his name). If you haven’t used the Thumbnail Linky before, your photos will pop up, and you may select the photo you want in the thumbnail on my blog. Thank you so much for linking to this weekly event. I can’t wait to go see some of your favorite things.

Thank you so much for coming to see my feathered friends today. Be sure you click on the links below to see some wonderful bloggers’ favorite things. laurie

Beautiful favorite things, Laurie.

I didn't get a post together since J and I are still gallavanting around. I'm sitting in a hotel room in Paducah KY as I type!LOL

Not doing much visiting the blogs this trip. Just checking in now and then...will try to catch up next week.

I did have a couple of little posts of our road trip to Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin, though. I don't think they count as favorites posts. We are having a blast! Heading home tomorrow.

I hope it's ok if I linked my little GREAT granddaughter's birthday. After all, she IS one of my MOST favorite things!! :))

Oh, and i didn't see a place for the name of our blogs..?

Laurie- I LOVE the prints! I have always wanted a collection of bird or botanical prints, but they are SO expensive! I know some smart people use stock images and do great framed ones. I'm just not sure how. Great picture of your house in the header--immaculate yard :)

Love your prints, Laurie. It is ironic that you posted them because I am thinking of doing some bird/botanical prints for my new improved family room!! Like Susan, I don't really know how to download anything and what the quality is. I am going to try All They have a nice selection. Loved joining your party this week! :-)

Sarah said...

Love all your birds, Laurie. I'm sharing birds today as well . . . birds of a feather flock together or great minds . . . :-)
Thanks for hosting this fun event each week. I like the thumbnail photos on the linky.

Unknown said...

Laurie, You are so clever, I love how you put together this mosaic of your participating blogs. I am going to put something together for next week's party. I just love this idea! I didn't know you loved birds, wow what a gorgeous collection too. Have a beautiful weekend.

P.S. I checked the back of Somerset Studio magazine and the deadline was April 15th for the garden party submission. You can always send this party idea to Artful Blogging too.


KBeau said...

Laurie, I love your bird prints. I have a few myself, but not nearly the collection that you have. Love the new Linky tool you are using with the thumbnail prints. Thanks again for hosting. I'll be back to visit again later, but right now I've got to get ready for the 40 people who are coming to dinner at my house tonight.

Sonny G said...

Your bird prints are so pretty.. If I had them they'd be favorites of mine too...
Thanks for hosting this party for us. This is the first time I've been able to participate..


Cass @ That Old House said...

Hi Laurie!
LOVE the bird pictures. I am a total sucker for all things avian! Yesterday I featured bird dishes I picked up thru Craigslist; some of your prints remind me of them. I need some bird prints for my study ... now you've inspired me.

Stella said...

I too love birds. I have my bird pictures hanging in my bathroom. My collection is not nearly as wonderful as yours and what a nice way to decorate a sunroom. Thanks for sharing.

Cathy~Mille Fleur said...

I love birds too! Your bird prints are gorgeous...I adore collections hung that way...they make such an impact!

I am hoping to put something together for next week...looks like ya'll are having alot of fun!


Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

Pretty bird prints. Love the collection. I need more walls! I have so many windows....just can't hang anything else...but I do love the print collections...very classy'!

Helen said...

Good Morning Ms. Laurie!

You always do the most clever things with your blog ... I am Welcome Home!

Enjoy your weekend. If you have heard from Linda Mom, will you please let me know via email?

GardenOfDaisies said...

Laurie, your birds pictures and plates are all so pretty!
I especially like the little brown thrush numbered print. And I love that you have several images of birds in the dogwood trees... are those by local artists? I have so many favorite things around here you would think I would be able to come up with something for your meme... I need to take a look around.
Hope you are having a happy weekend!

I love your little birdies! Be blessed. Cindy

Sue said...

Laurie, I love, love all things birds and nests, so I truly love your artwork!! I use several sites that have free artwork and vintage pics for personal use- guess I need to tell Blondie about them and how to use them. :-) I just recently found some cool ones w/some eggs that I need to print out. Having fun visiting friends again now that I am not on 24 hour nursing duty!
big hugs, Sue

Sharon@KeenInspriatons said...

Hi Laurie,
I found you via Cindy from Creationsby Cindy. I have to add my "I LOVE your bird prints" comment here too! I'm going to show them to my 11 year old son who is an avid bird watcher!They would definitely be among his favorite things. Thank you for sharing them!

thank you for seeking me out in my absence. my sil committed suicide...and i found her...thus, my deep depression and withdrawal... taking a bit of time off~in prayer. miss you too.
