Letting My Bluebird Sing - Fun In the Winter Sun

It's a glorious winters day in my pocket of the world.
The sun in shining, the sky is blue and only the gentlest of breezes is rustling the treetops.

Visiting my parents property, I found a little bluebird friend hopping around the garden and whipped out the camera to capture these snaps of happiness to share with you....

....OK so her whistle might be a little tinny but she was fun to play with & she's inspired me to take out the paper and pastels and create something special that I hope will help to make someone else's bluebird of happiness sing bright and true. I suggest that the joy of whimsy is a gift that brightens the heart and can lighten even the greyest wintery day and wonder how long you've played in this way?

I'm cheekily including this in today's creative spaces feature where you'll find some other lovely birdy friends too. Skip on over and see if something captures your imagination to inspire some creative play today.


  1. so cute! made me laugh because it took me a second to realize it wasn't real - or at least not breathing... :)

  2. and winter sounds wonderful - we've had 100 degrees for 3 days in a row here in Texas...

  3. Ha - this reminds me of friends that took a bird around the world and photographed it at all the iconic sites. Very funny!

  4. SOOOOO cute. Love the way you dressed it up!

  5. You nearly had me fooled Felicity! I was like 'wow, I've never seen a bird like that before' hehehehe.
    So glad you're enjoying winter, I'm quite enjoying it today too, even with the never ending rain. Will and I were enjoying the splashes of rain on our face this morning.

  6. He's cute! Or maybe he's a she. Anyway, you're funny and I love your photos. He's a very happy bluebird. I can tell.

    Have a wonderfully wintery day, Ms Fel. xx

  7. I love your creative photo cluster!!
    The sky is turning grey right now, so will keep your little blue bird in my mind :)

  8. Oh you tricked me there Felicity. I love the way you've put your collage together. Every bit as creative as anything else on our creatives spaces. Love that place :)

  9. Ok, ya got me. It took me about 40 seconds to realise it wasn't a real bird! But oh so cute! Sounds like a lovely day :)

  10. cheep cheep.

    once I saw a little bird go hop hop hop
    I said to the bird will you stop stop stop
    i ran to the window to say how do you do
    and he shook his little tail and away he flew.

    a song we are liking in our house.

    bless ya


  11. OMGoodenss - I'm so glad to see it wasn't only me who thought it was real!
    These photo montages of yours are very clever.

    Glad you enjoyed my gifts - I didn't want to do a whole 'look at all my presents!' but really wanted to share the love!

  16. Hoping this comment gets to you! Beautiful winter days here in Brisbane - I knew there was a very good reason I moved from Scotland to Australia!
    Your bluebird pics are SO cute & fun - I was nearly fooled for a minute. Reminds me of a time someone played a trick on me and bought a plastic budgie and placed it in the bird feeder. I was totally taken in!
