  1. Birdy of the Week: House Birds

    Modern Wood Bird by Studioliscious via WeeBirdy.comYellow Modern Wood Bird ‘Yellow Warbler’ by Studioliscious.

    This week’s birdy pick comes all the way from Canada, where Etsy sellers Studioliscious create ‘house birds’ inspired by the designs of mid-century illustrator Charley Harper.

    Each bird is cut from high-grade Baltic Birch plywood, and the design is then applied using an image transfer method. This results in slight imperfections to the printed image which adds to the handmade charm of each piece. The design is applied to both sides of the cut-out so the birds can face any direction.

    Priced from around AU$27, you can take your pick from the black-capped chickadee, green honeykeeper, American robin, yellow warbler, and Eastern bluebird. A group of three birds would make an eye-catching vignette on a sideboard or shelf – and instant collection!

    Disclaimer: I’m proud to be an Etsy Tastemaker (hurrah!) and I hand-picked these lovely birds for my Etsy Tastemaker page. If you buy a bird (or something equally delightful) from the Wee Birdy Tastemaker’s Etsy page, I will receive a small commission fee. (And it will help me find you more great things!) Please note that I only blog about things I really, really like, and think you should also know about. Editorial is based purely on merit and its ability to make me smile (exploding confetti jets optional).
