Iwanna Wednesday

This is for the birds!!

No, I'm not fed up with Iwanna Wednesdays. How could I be fed up with being able to shop for beautiful things and post them here for all to see? What's for the birds is. . .

wait for it~~~

wait for it~~~

Ok, so maybe I do watch too much "How I Met Your Mother", but what's for the birds that Iwanna this Wednesday?


Why? Because we have lots of beautiful Bluebirds in our back yard and they love it when I turn the sprinkler on. They play in it and flutter around and then they eat all those good bugs that come to the surface. So I thought maybe they might like a birdbath.

And I found some beauties. I never knew there were so many styles. I assumed I would find a white plastic one like I had about 20 years ago, but check these out . . .

This one I loved because those little birds can just kinda hang out and wait their turn for the water, or if they drink too much they can just sit there and wait til they sober up so they can fly straight! (No, I'm not planning to put tequila in the birdbath...the tequila is for me!)

This one is great because I do so badly with growing flowers...and this one is ready made with lots of beautiful flowers!

This one is the Minnie Pearl model. Oh come on! You don't know who Minnie Pearl is? What?? Oh, I'm dating myself? Ummm, no, I just know a lot of trivia, I'm not really old enough to know who Minnie Pearl is. Anyone want to guess why this is a Minnie Pearl model? If you can't guess, go here and see if you can get a clue. They have a lovely photo of Minnie and a great story, but then don't forget to come back cause we got lots more Iwanna lovelies to see.

Go on now...I'll wait.

Hey welcome back! Did you guess? I knew you would, you're a smart buncha people!

Now this next one I loved because the bath itself is copper and would reflect the sun so nicely. But would it maybe reflect too much and make the water too hot? I don't want Bluebird Soup! Nor do Iwanna blind the poor things with the reflection. Ok, so maybe not this one, but it is beautiful isn't it?

Awwwww, one after my own heart. I love Angels. Especially Angels who bathe! And obviously birds love Angels since Angels have wings like they do. If you notice some have already come with the birdbath to keep the Angel company.

Now I don't know about this one. Iwanna like it, well actually I do like it, but doesn't it look a lot like a Venus Fly Trap plant? But birds aren't flies, so maybe they would do ok? What do you think?

And last, but not least Iwanna this one. Awwww, isn't this adorable? This would even be cute hanging in your bathroom with a plant or some pretty hand towels or scented soaps wouldn't it?

Yep, I think the Bluebirds would be happy in any one of these. And we should be getting quite a few more Bluebirds cause don't birds fly South for the Winter?

Huh? What? What do you mean Southern California isn't the south birds fly to.
Oh well, no matter that is what Iwanna this Wednesday.
Which is your favorite?

  1. I love your humor. You've given my morning a kick start. Who knew there were so many different kinds of birdbaths :-). Now we know.

  2. Oh I love them all it is too hard to choose! Cute post ;)


  3. Love the different bird baths! My best is the painted one, and the last photo is so humorous.

    RYC: There are so many things to see in LA. The whole Expo Park is so huge!

  4. So darling

    Bird baths are soo wonderful -- the biggest down fall of course is the "mess" they leave behind.

    If you get a chance please stop by and say hi!

  5. What kewl birdbaths!!! It's hard to pick a favorite because they're all so unique. The last one DID make me laugh aloud ;--)
