One of my dear sweet blogging friends, Mildred, asked yesterday if I could share photos of the decorative bird plates I like to collect. These are all in the kitchen as I’ve run out of walls in the rest of the house.
Stylized birds by unknown artist(s)
I wish the artist had been allowed to sign these yellow plates as they are two of my favorites. For some reason they remind me of the old fashioned German style of decorating, only less blue.

My husband found the two by Avon at a local thrift store. He would like to find a couple more if anyone knows of a source or location. He prefers bird photos and paintings that look ‘real’. Me, I go for flash and color but I’m quirky. *wink*
These little numbers are by Jonathan Byron under the Americana Signature Collection series. I know, how could one eat off such a plate! *giggle* I know, they’re not made for that. They sure collect dust but a good gentle washing now and that solves that problem.
Of course, the Red Birds (Cardinals) are my favorite. They’re displayed in a prominent place in the kitchen so I can see them from the living room. There’s a lot of Red Bird decorations in our home.
And one plate that isn’t a depiction of a bird at all. I put the Magnolia image in the middle of all the other plates to kinda soften the bird motif.
Hope y’all enjoyed the stroll through my kitchen. Gotta get out the vacuum cleaner now to erase all the foot prints. *giggle* Have a blessed day my friends.
