Well wouldn't this teapot be right up my alley! I've scoured the internet and darned if I could ever find this bluebird teapot. I do have one - my Rosie B. Farmer Songbird Garden in pink, but this one is cute too. So there's a story to go with this teapot and you can find it here. The destination this week is kind of fun. We are to send our card to the person who posts their card in the gallery to left of us on SCS.
I used my retired Avian Toile stamp and watercolored it. The trim on the top was cut using my MS fringe scissors (one of those splurges with a Mike's coupon).
So at this point I thought I'd report on our bluebirds. Yes, we have another nesting pair this year. As I was going through my pictures I noticed we had pictures of nests on the same day for the past three years.
The lack of pine needles in the current year picture makes me think that this is a new pair of bluebirds and not a returning pair.
And there was a couple of pictures of eggs on the same day in two separate years.
Look how sweetly they have woven some feathers into the heart of this nest. Presently there are 5 eggs in the nest. We believe they are brooding now, so in about 12 days we should see hatchlings. I'll keep posting as I can.
