    These birds are shown in forefront top shelf of my 78"H, 5 shelf glass animal display tower, I finally have some organization for my collection that is long overdue. The overflow will go into a second upcoming cabinet

      Both very nice - my fave is the cobalt blue :)

      Wow, Jenni, the colors look so nice on your shelf. I always like to see how others display their pieces :)

      Thank you thank you thank you Jenni for showing your cabinet as well as these two beautiful birds.
      I wish I could sit at your cabinet and look and touch.
      CW is a great replacement I guess.

      Thank you Hoot for the terrific compliment, I really love the cobalt bird as well, he was the find that almost got away - an auction piece, the owner also gave the option of making an offer which I did but it was rather low & was afraid I'd be shut out, finally at the last minute she decides to accept it, so here it is with its amber 'partner'! These small Pilgrim animals often look best paired with a different color mate, and I'm really glad you thought so too :)

      Thanks Ken for the great praise for both my bird duo & new showcase for my glass animals, yeah there are really a LOT, tried not to overcrowd the shelves this was mainly a project of unpacking the carefully bubble packed animals and surveying which were still undamaged (fortunately @ 90% survived) and tossing some faves that were heartbreakingly beyond repair. I am so glad the finished product came out OK & appreciate your noticing

      Thank you so very much MrsT for the fab compliment I'm so pleased that you got to see this post, as I know you were one of my kind friends who asked me where I put my large collection (formerly, storage) and I've been talking about getting a display cabinet for ages. Thank you for your encouragement during my months of promising, there will be more organization ahead!

      Karen you are welcome & thanked from my heart for your fantastic compliments and kind enjoyment of my glass animal tower, which I tried to fill with mixed colors as well as some popular fave animal posts, but still I couldn't 'house' everything and have a second, more conventional style tall mahogany wood corner cabinet for the overflow that I'm working on filling. Why didn't I do the tower as a separate post, well of course it was camera trouble, all my full view vertical panoramic (tablet) photos posted as side view which is so annoying & I am not technical enough to set them straight, so I came as close as I could in straight-on horizontal pix, hoping you can make out some of the collection. I do promise though that as I get new additions, I will try to include a full shelf close up shot with the post of the new arrival animal, this way some old favorites can be clearly defined as well

      Newfld how beautiful these are! Fantastic display as well.

      Thank you Elisabeth for your great compliments & the love, I am so happy that you enjoyed both the Pilgrim birds and my display tower, appreciate your very kind words

      GAH! I've wanted to see where you keep your glass menagerie for ages! It's so colourful and expressive, I'd love to go through all of it! :P The little birds are so sweet too, they look a bit like pied wagtails actually (really cute little birds in real life btw!)

      Hi Lauren & thanks for the fabulous compliments, glad you enjoyed my pair of birdies & happy to FINALLY have a glass animal display case to show you, as you can imagine it was quite the project. I am going to show close ups of the shelves in a couple wks with a new animal post, plus have a 2nd cabinet in the works - staying at home with this health crisis thing, all that time on my hands at least I put it to good use lol!
