An entire family of turquoise glass birdies has come home to roost at our house.
It started out with one turquoise bird.
He was in a country store where prices are more than I like to pay but he was so adorable, I couldn't resist.
He was an "only child" for awhile. Then, I found a girlfriend for him for only a buck at a yard sale .
Naturally, the young lovers eventually wanted kids.
One by one, believe it or not, the other little birdies joined the family.
Most hung out at yard sales and I found them hiding behind salt and pepper shakers or under baskets.
Luckily, they all looked the same and were that beautiful turquoise color.
The littlest fellow cost only 50 cents!
So now the family is pretty complete.
I told them four "kids" were enough to take care of.
They wait for spring on a windowsill in a downstairs room.
Even though they are really kind of turquoise, I still like to call them my "blue"birds of happiness.
Today we are joining Thrifty Things Friday on Diann's blog, The Thrifty Groove.
Please stop by her blog and say "howdy."
