Junk Love Monday: What a Hoot

Not surprisingly, the Blackbird girls love birds. Now, we wouldn't want to own actual, living birds (we've seen too many Hitchcock films), but we are drawn to feather motifs and junk with birds on it. Of course we love crows, ravens, blackbirds...but we also buy owls, pheasants, and peacocks. We even have a budding collection of songbird food tins (only two, but on its way to three!). But, probably our largest bird collection at this time is the owls.

A lot of 1970s home decor had owls, and you know you've seen at least one macrame owl in a thrift store sometime. We buy old and new birds, depending on whoooooo speaks to us. So, without further ado, please allow us to introduce our friends:
