Sunday Sketches . . . A Little Birdie Told Me

Our yard is a virtual bird sanctuary. Its a bird watchers dream. Although we do not have a bird feeder there are always lots of birds from robins, doves, bluejay's and cardinals who come by daily to visit. I am surprised that this is my first stab at sketching a bird!

I created this little cutie yesterday afternoon. And the words "A little birdie told me about love." popped in my mind. As you can see they are scribbled on the sketch paper. If I don't write it down it is gone "poof" from my head.

I decided to link up with Sunday Sketches for the first time this week after seeing what others were sharing during my sunday blog visits. So I am sharing this birdie sketch!

You can join us over at Sophia's Blog "Blue Chair Diary" to see the other lovelies that are being shared today!

  6. Adore your bird, Cathy. I would LOVE to have a backyard bird sanctuary. How soothing to wake up every morning with a hot cuppa in hand, listening to such beauty. :) Happy SS!

  8. So sweet, Cathy! And your yard sounds like ours - filled with all kinds of birds. I can sit for hours just watching them. And they don't seem to be afraid of us (even Winslow or Ramses) and come to the feeders with their whole families... Love, Silke
