Silhouettes



Bird silhouettes

I'll bite the bullet and say, in moderation I like them all, especially silhouettes, I think they are timeless. That said, I don't want a home full of avian knickknacks, just a touch here or there.

Are you going to chew my head off?
;0)

I was thinking that it's possible I'm both tired of all of them and tired of none of them--at the same time.

It depends on the way they're used.

I DO not like d*s painted table with the tableware silhouette. If that's my choice of silhouette then no. And most of the birds you've chosen are examples I don't like either.

I'm a total trend whore. I just bought some bird placemats from DwellStudio, and I totally want to do up my closet with bird and butterfly wallpaper. My business card has my silhouette on it. I'm a slave to fashion, what can I say? Not a creative bone in my body...


And congrats on one year of blogging!

I had to vote for bird silhouettes because I adore the dog silhouettes.

that green table is hideous. The rest I can live with, not in my house though.

I used to love birds. Now, I'm all about the cats, and UrbanDwellElm better not ruin it for me!

Umm, all of the above?

NKP - Never! You pretty much have a free pass.

CitySage - see comment for NKP above.

Leah - Welcome to this deliciousness!

I will be so sad if it is determined the birds have jumped the shark. You know, what with my slight obsession and all :-(

I'm loving bird silhouettes as long as they're carrion eaters.
Possibly to do with my state of mind. Vulture anyone?

Ha! Bird silhouettes.

I heart you.

Um, frankly i think the table silhouette is a bit much for me and I would much rather a wall of dog silhouettes than pics of a real dog.
