For the Birds

Let's do a little word association...

When I say "PIGEON", you say....????...

I'm guessing you didn't say "chic decor/fashion"...and I'm not really sure you will say that *after* reading this post either (c:

Regardless, I find all sorts of wacky stuff on the web and well, I like to spring it on unsuspecting blog readers. Did I just say that out loud?

I came across this image and thought it was interesting/a little weird:

I mean pigeons??? Who knew, right?

Turns out there are pigeons everywhere (and I don't just mean pooping on stuff)!

Decor stuff....

In fashion shoots...

In artwork...

Lamps???

Even Etsy gets in on the action:


I'm totally okay with the whole "bird movement" with birds on all sorts of stuff...but PIGEONS???

I dunno...

I adore pigeons. Love the pigeons on the skirt especially.

I was going to say poop, so I guess it makes sense to see them in the pooper :D I'm thinking I like the pigeons! Kinda nice to see a different bird pop up.

i don't hate it. And dirty confession i have alot of bird decor in our house, so much the hubs told me not to bring home another d&*m bird piece. Lesson learned. But pigeons do weird me out, I mean they are in flocks everywhere....

Probably not my favorite... I mean couldnt' we go with something a little classier... like doves or even chickadees (not necessarily classier, but they are more fun to say).

i like that they are kind of round and pudgy little guys, but they are annoying... now mourning doves are similarly shaped, but they are sweeter to me. :)

Kim @ keller-creative said...

Im terrified of birds (real life ones at least) so that large scale realist art would never work for me and the picture of the girl with birds around her is pretty much my worst nightmare :/ . The bird silouette pillow? I can dig that.

Lindsey @ be pretty said...

Hehehe!!! This is sorta kinda cute! I do love the birds... I love the little feather flock in the fashion shoot images. OMG that skirt is FABULOUS and only $35!!! Holy cow! :) Love it! Hope your week is full of sweetness!

Jessamie Vincent said...

Pigeons are so freaking dirty! They're like sky rats! Sorry...I'm not a fan. Although I could wear that skirt...but definitely couldn't look at them in the bathroom, blah

Angeline said...

..or dove ...one revered, one, not so much :) "Put a bird on it!" :)

natasha {schue love} said...

Oh that's funny!! Who would have guessed they were so popular?? Reminds me of Mary Poppins!

The Now said...

So in love with that first pic! xoxo Elizabeth

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Gotta say not the hugest fan. But that's only because they've pooped on me 3 times in the past year. Yes 3 times! And once twice in the same day! No lie. But they are cute... :) xoxo

Jane Craske said...

Not a huge pigeon fan. 'They' say that one pooping on you is good luck but I think that's just to make you feel better about having been pooped on.

Cre8ive Motives said...

I'm sorry but I'm not loving it! There cute and all but I just don't care to see them in my home....next please!

Alexa said...

Love that skirt. It looks like a work of art itself. P.S. there's a pigeon trying to steal my baked good right now. Ha.

White Lacquer said...

I really like that first pic of the bathroom, but I'm not sure about pigeons everywhere else. :)

Xx. Patience

Amy said...

that pigeon dressed in clothing made me laugh out loud. I love birds... but I agree, there's something off about pigeons!

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

I agree I am not so sure about the Pigeons!

Karena said...

I was going to say No to the pigeons then I saw all of the wonderful images; so maybe for some items!!

I adore the 2nd work of art!

Lonely Wife Project said...

Where or where can I buy the pigeon portrait? You know, the one where she looks like the Queen!

Bud and Leo said...

oh my goodness how cute! My aunt loves birds and would LOVE this!

Gloria said...

That pigeon lamp cracks me up!

Tamra {ever swoon} said...

I feel like that girl in the picture when pigeons are around. they are always flying into me and then i scream. like a tourist. i can't help myself.

but in decor, not so scary. but bella would be chasing things all over the house!

DeAnn @ The SIP project said...

Great post! I love hanging photos from floor to ceiling so different, I would love to do this but I think little hands would make that neigh impossible.
