My birds have arrived! They're finally here after weeks of waiting, and they're very beautiful. Opening this box up was considerably exciting, it's reminiscent of the ones stacked in the attic at the Platt Hall gallery. Very intriguing with its 'White Birds for Xmas' label, and the delicate contents all wrapped up in tissue paper.
I think Mary Greg would have enjoyed this collection; each bird has his own character with a slightly differing expression to the next. There's even a half blind one - he has a white eye.

  1. What are you going to use these for?..they do look like a box from Platt Hall's attic.
    are you making the poorly sighted bird some glasses?

  2. I'm not totally sure what i'm going to use them for yet, but they're going to feature in something.
    I should definitely make him some glasses!

  3. Love these! They look like they've just woken up. I've bought another book - Birds - The Art of Ornithology. Its good.

  4. They do look like they've just woken up! I guess they've been in that box a long time. Had a look at your book, it's really nice.
