Spring Forward

In the United States, we spring forward on March 14 which means we get to set our clocks ahead an hour, gaining more daylight. Hoorah!

In preparation, this weird bird was trying on several Spring outfits in a very lighthearted way…

She is even wearing eyeglasses like mine! Lol!

The Spring bouquet is from my sweet husband for my birthday last week.

The sun is shining and we are having Spring like weather this week in the Pacific Northwest. Time to celebrate!

Happy Spring and Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

New Eyeglasses

I can see clearly now…

I wonder do birds ever lose their eye sight?

My eyesight continues to get worse as I age. I recently ordered new eyeglasses with new frames. They are ready for me to pick them up today, I can’t wait!

New eyeglasses were my inspiration for today’s weird bird.

Do you wear eyeglasses or do you prefer contacts? Perhaps you have excellent vision and don’t need either!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 😎

A Snowbird?

During a recent snow storm…

A weird bird of a different flock showed up…

A Snowbird!

Not the typical snowbird that goes to warmer weather during the winter…

It was a good day to complete another jigsaw puzzle:

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Stay warm! 😃

Engine Engine #9

I am still into jigsaw puzzles…

Here is the third one I did with butterflies:

It was more complicated with all the colors and took me longer than a week to complete.

Today’s weird bird is another puzzle!

A black and white one…

Engine Engine #9

Can you find the engine? And the #9’s? (Hint: There are several)

Engine, engine number nine

Coming down the railroad line…

Perhaps you remember this song written and recorded by the American country music artist, Roger Miller. The song was released in May 1965 according to Wikipedia.

If you get a chance, listen to Roger Miller sing his song on YouTube. It may bring a smile to your face as it did mine! The lyrics are a hoot!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Puzzler

Did you know that January is national puzzle month?

I have completed one 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle with Happy Buttons:

And I am working on a second one with Houseplants:

Sometimes my weird birds start out like a puzzle:

I started this trio in watercolor. Then I added a little paper collage:

Next, some details with color pencils:

And finished with pencil shading:

What kind of puzzles do YOU like to work on?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Quilted Quince

High winds today where I live…

A good day to stay bundled up in a warm quilt!

These two words, quilt and quince were next to each other in my children’s dictionary. I thought they sounded like a good weird bird!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Stay warm! 🙂

Smitten With Mittens

It is snowing buckets today in the Pacific Northwest where I live.

Imagine my surprise when I looked out my window and saw…

A flock of weird birds smitten with mittens!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

Cheers! 🙂

Jingle Jangle

Two little birds flew in to jingle jangle their bells last night…

Hoping your holidays are a delight!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Friends!

Cheers! 🙂

Spreading JOY

I am so proud of my nephew, Jerred Mace!

He is a design student at University of Washington and has created coffee sleeves with positive messages to spread JOY!

Check out his website: wjoyproject.com

Jerred is a very talented young man. He wrote a book of poetry that he self-published in High School. You can purchase a copy of it if you are interested, on his website.

If you are ever in Edmonds, WA on a Wednesday, please stop by Walnut Street Coffee for a cup of JOY!

Cheers! 🙂

A Moose Goose?

This weird bird flew out of my imagination!

I started with an eyes closed drawing and discovered what looked to me like a moose! So I added a little collage:

A blue Moose Goose is on the loose!

I hope this silly bird gives you a smile today!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂
