For the Birds

Early morning wake-ups are not exactly my cup 'o tea BUT with the windows open now (yea!!), we are being chirped awake by the singing birds outside. How can one not be cheered by their Good Morning hello calls? As an inspiration, I think I need to craft something to remind me of their presence. Some recent pictures have caught my attention recently...
How sweet is this little "tweeter" on the recent Talbot's sale postcard?
The above bird-related cards were found in the March 2008 magazine PaperCrafts.
This adorable little felted wool project is found in the book Warm Fuzzies by Betz White.
Since my last blog about the felted wool backpack I made, there have been many old wool sweaters acquired and I am ready to get working on more projects...isn't this bird with nest too cute? Add it to the list!
Any others ideas out there with what to do/make with little cheery birds as a motif?

Birds are HOT right now! I find lots of cute bird-inspired items on Etsy all the time. From DSBrennan's work (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5358568) to these (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=12281525). What about a cute collection of vintage birdhouses?

So cute! Are you going to make the felted bird book cover pictured?

Thanks for the bird-inspired addresses, Melissa. I'm thinking you are right about birds being HOT right now.

Sarah, I really think I should make that felted bird cover, don't you?
