hark!


Luke surprised me with a new friend on Valentine's day..

Hi, Bleu!


He said he picked this little one because it was hanging out at the end of a stick, playing with toys. A loner.
He was also certain that she was a he, but I think she's all girl..her fave place is perched on my vintage dresses!
Within thirty minutes of meeting I had her hanging out on my finger, a new record!
I've had a few parakeets in my life, an early memory from childhood involves two of them flying right out the door.
She loves flying around in my studio, and listening to music.


"We love music!"

I started telling her this when she was afraid of the strange sounds coming out of the computer..she especially loves songs with whistling and quieter, scratchier voices.
 Mockingbird(Tom Waits) came on..appropriately haha! I whistled along and she clicked her tiny beak, puffed her throat feathers out, and blinked her pretty feathery eyelashes. Such a delicate, beautiful little creature..
I'm smitten. And I know she'll talk to me one day, I can feel it. We're besties.



Valentine's day treats


Strawberry Marshmallows

They taste like yummy melting strawberry ice cream in your hot chocolate, so good.





Chocolate Covered Strawberry!

We love classic yellow cupcakes/chocolate frosting..fancied up with strawberry jam and red food coloring.
The only wine I buy, 5$ from Aldi's! Love.



Enjoying her fave treat too, we're budgie buddies.


Happy Tuesday!

Oh my gosh, what a perfect Valentines Day gift! I grew up with pet birds and miss them so much. Does she spend most of her time uncaged?

Bleu is such a little beauty! I love how coordinated she is with the clothes. Have you seen the Portlandia "Put a Bird On It" sketch? It looks like you've taken it to a new level!

I'm also really intrigued by those marshmallows! How do you make them?
