Confessions of a 30 year old Orinthophile

I am enchanted by birds - both in their actual and represented forms. Perhaps it is because my first best friend was a parakeet named Sky, who was endlessly patient with me as I lured him with birdseed on to my "Super Friends" turntable and then switched it on. I also might have inherited my love of birds from my Grandma Isabelle, who collected wire forms of birds and hung them from her dining room chandelier. For obvious reasons, these hand made "wall prints" by Louise Body are the my latest ornithological obsession. Oh - and she works in Britain, which feeds my Anglophilia.

I love the bird wallpaper! And I'm an Anglophile, so I guess it makes sense.

We should start a suppoty group! I should write a post about the Morris birds prints, which would satisfy both of our loves in one fell swoop.

Correction: support group. Sup - poty sounds scary.
