Birds of a Feather

There has been great blog coverage of the Winter Antiques Show in New York over the last couple of weeks.  A crowd favorite was Elle Shushan's booth designed by Ralph Harvard.  (For more information on this design and that of shows past, do click over to Emily Evans Eerdmans.)
 

One of the delightful design details of the booth were paper birds that were attached to the wallpaper near the ceiling.  While I was shopping for eggs Sunday, I noticed these in the March issue of World of Interiors.


I don't know if these are the same designs that Harvard used, but they are quite similar.  These animals are available on-line through Raspera.



There's quite an assortment, and here's the bonus - you pay a one-time, thirty dollar fee and you can download and print until your heart's content.

Do you have a "little" bird at your window telling you what to post? A little bird must have told you about these lovely little paper perfections.

I would make a Bluebird of happiness for a little pick-me-up. I know someone that will love these little peeps.

That seems like a good deal -- to have unlimited downloads. Thanks for the tip!

Patricia - I'm not sure about a little bird, but one of my bigger birds was standing there saying, "Can we do it now?" Looks like I have some cutting and glueing ahead of me.

Debra - there are some really fun animals. We want the turtle, of course, as we have one as a pet. Sadly, no boxer.

Courtney - why do I think these might turn up on a package sometime?

These are fabulous and make my creativity take flight! It seems they've had the same effect on you and many others. It looks like you've had a great time in New York!

How fun, my Mother loves birds. I can see giving these pretty little creatures to her on many occassions and atop gifts as you mentioned.

I'd definitely rather have these in paper form than the real thing, in my house! I'm loving the romantic, branchy bird motifs this spring.
