"When birds burp it must taste like bugs" Bill Watterson the Author of Calvin & Hobbs

I had to use that quote to open my guest blog for today. As most of you know I like birds. This is a homage to them and you.
I decided to look up quotes about birds and add them to some items from our BBEST team . We have a very talented and diverse group. Enjoy this treat !

Native American Beaded Earrings by Ghi-Goo-ie Designs
"God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages." Jaques Deval


A Murder of Crows by Heron Kate
"Among men the barber is cunning; among birds the crow...." Chanakya


Nesting Necklace by Ever So Dear
"Use what talent you posses; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best." H. VanDyke

"God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages. That quote made me teary eyed but it's so true. How sad.

Beautiful post, six. How can we be artists and not love birds.

Thanks.

What a beautiful article. I have a happy little bird that sings outside my window every single morning at the same time. I so look forward to his greeting each morning.

Wonderful post, Six... I love birds!!
I am awakened every morn by the lovely singing of our mockingbirds and bluebirds.

Six, what a wonderful post! So imaginative and creative, just like you. We have totally different birds here than we've had anywhere else. The doves never stop. If I wake up at 1:30 or 3:00 AM, there's always at least one 'Who cooks for you?' carrying on nearby. Beautiful quotes matched perfectly to beautiful art.

I love birds, too--and you've selected great quotes to accompany these bird-themed items. Thanks for including my needle book!

Judy Nolan said...

Oops...not a needle book (see above comment--typo), but instead a place to keep sewing notes!

I was sitting here listening to the birds and loving spring. Then I came across this and it was perfect!

I just love birds too. I get such pleasure sitting in the garden watching and listening to them.
I just finished a piece today too that is bird related which I'll be listing in my Etsy shop soon.
Thanks for sharing all of these bird lovely works of art!
