A Phrase Drill

Sometimes during a Phrase Drill the geese forgot which way to fly…


Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

I hope you “fly” in the right direction today…

Cheers! 🙂

A Bandana Banana Bandit

Today’s weird bird was named the Bandana Banana bandit


Because of its brightly colored “bandana” feathers around its neck.  Living in the tropics, this bird was often caught trying to steal a banana or two!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

I hope this colorful bird helps brighten your day…

Cheers! 🙂

Plum Good!

Last week, I was given a box of  lemon plums from a friend.  He is out-of-town and gets a monthly delivery of fruit from Harry and David.

I loved the plum’s yellow color but I knew they weren’t ripe yet.  When I opened the box yesterday, I was surprised to see a lovely blushing pink color!  Oh, so beautiful!!

So I decided to make a pie!  I found a recipe and decided to give it a try… (I don’t make many pies…)


Which reminded me a little of my Weird Bird I made for my hubby’s Valentine last week; below are the “ingredients”:


I numbered the back of each collage piece and wrote a short message.  It was fun to mix the pieces together in an envelope for hubby to open and complete a bird:


It reminded me of making this pie yesterday…


Sometimes the finished piece is as fun as mixing the ingredients together…

I hope your day is plum good! 

Cheers! 🙂

Sonnet 43

How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways…


Today’s weird bird was inspired by Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnet 43:


In the book, Finding The Gift by Angela Howell, she writes; “Be the love you wish to receive…  Love you!  Love your life exactly as it is right now.  Happiness is an inside job!”

How do you love YOU?

Happy Valentine’s Day to someone special – YOU!

Cheers! 🙂

A Hankering

Do remember wearing overalls?  I did as a child… they were sooo comfortable!

Today’s Weird Bird is a feathered farm boy bird!  (John Denver’s song comes to mind… Thank God I’m A Country Boy, um, Bird!! 


Hank had a hankering to wear his overalls today…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday! 

I hope Hank gives you a smile today…

Cheers! 🙂

One Tough Old Bird

I decided to change things up today and create a weird bird with scraping paint, like the technique I showed you previously, here: Scraping Paint…

And I wrote a Limerick:

There once was an old bird from Bend,

Whose wild hair stood up on end,

She did have some charm,

With hens on the farm,

Who crowned her Queen of Hair Trends!


Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

May your hair look fabulous today!

Cheers! 🙂

A Yackety-Yack

I spotted a yellow, Yackety-Yack


Who was yacking with a wild Yak


But this silly Yak wouldn’t talk back… Can you believe that?!!

If you are feeling out of wack, I hope today’s post puts you back on track!

Or at least gives you a smile! 🙂

Happy weird bird animal Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

The Caroling Bird

Definitely a song bird…


This Caroling Bird sings a song of joy!

Wishing you a HAPPY Weird Bird Wednesday!

Hope you will be singing a happy tune…

Cheers! 🙂

Pie In The Sky

Continuing with the Apple theme for today’s Weird Bird…

I have a slice of humor for you today:


The Apple Pie A’ La Mode Bird

Some days it is good to remember the simple pleasures in life like a slice of pie with ice cream on top!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂


It was “rewarding” to complete a page in my Alphabet Journal this week…


But then I “realized” that there was something missing! 😮

“R” you wondering WHAT that is?!

Well, while I was preparing for my weekend “retreat” at the lake, I discovered a “remarkable” feather…. so I got out my bird feather book:


And in my “research” I discovered the identity of the “Rare” bird from Wednesday:


I hope this gives you a smile today!  🙂

Relax and enjoy your weekend…

Cheers Friends!
