      Happy Valentines Day.... Jenni. Nice post.... the glass lovebirds are my favorite!!

      Awh- these are sooo cute too! Your uploads this week are very sweet and cutsey- these are the same! I think these make a lovely little heart shape too which is perfect for Valentine's day.
      Whenever I think of lovebirds I remember that scene in Hitchcock's 'The Birds' where the little lovebirds in question tilt side to side when the car is rounding the corner(probably the only scene in that film that made me laugh)

      Thanks all for the Valentine's love

      Thank you so much TimeT for the lovely compliments & Valentine's wishes, I hope you too had a great V day. The blue glass lovebirds are one of my fave Reijmyre pieces, the base is so fluid looking like running water, a real optical illusion

      Thanks Ken for the fabulous praise, when I saw this Swoboda lovebirds brooch I knew I had to have it, that engraved jade heart is super romantic :) Very glad you enjoyed the combo these pieces seemed like a good fit

      Lauren I had to go with sweet and cute for Valentine's, one of my inspirational holidays - think we all turn into kiddies sending each other heart cards around this time of yr lol. Yes I do remember that seagull birdie pair watching the people leave town after they terrorized them in The Birds, it was like, okay you finally got the message, this is OUR town now go!! And it was funny, in all Hitchcock's suspense films his sense of humor peeks in, great filmmaker. Thanx for your always wonderful compliments

      Thanks so much MrsT for the great compliments, I thought the hugging lovebirds pose in both items would be perfect on Valentine's, sort of like they were made for each other! The blue glass birds also came in clear or frosted plain glass versions but you know me, my window glass animals look so much livelier in color

      Mary thank you times three for the fabulous compliments, we gotta let our birdie love shine as they are such happy holiday subjects :) Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's and please give Louie an Xtra kiss from me xoxo

      Thank you Phil for the fantastic compliment I am delighted that you enjoyed this pair (or should I say quad) of birds in love
