New birds on the block Nos. 9 and 10

{Birdie Mobile by spindesigns}

Mrs. French was loving this pretty mobile today, and it just so happened I was looking for some new birdies to post. I love the simplicity of silhouettes, and this design has simultaneously captured the whimsy of a vintage design with the spareness of a modern look. Plus there is some assembly required, so you get to feel crafty, like you made it yourself (well, if you happened to have some museum mat board and a laser cutter lying around). You can pick it up at SpinDesigns' Etsy shop.

All Things Bright And Beautiful is another daily haunt, and she was obviously feeling my bird vibe today, as she posted this and other dresses by Australian designer Michelle Jank. A true flight of fancy, no?

Love the dress, although if you decide to wear the hat that goes with it, I'll refuse to be seen with you.

I love your new birds on the block feature.
I have written a couple of posts on little birds (I featured stichadoo too). I keep finding more birds to love and you are not helping at all!
I think I am going to have to add a special place like yours for all my bird finds. :)
I put you on my (slowly building) blogroll. Very nice blog!

Both are so wonderful. I wish I had the figure to wear that beautiful nest of a dress.
