3 Little Birdies


Life can be random in a great way sometimes.  As I sat at  my table Friday afternoon, working on some new jewelry, I heard a bird hit the glass door. This has happened a lot in the past so I bought special stickers to put on the windows that are supposed to scare them away…… Didn’t work that time. So I ran outside to see if I could save it. As I held it in my hand I noticed another little chickadee  right behind me so I picked that one up as well. It sure seemed weird to me that 2 birds flew into the window at the same time. Then I noticed that about 10 feet away on the deck there was another chickadee just sitting there. Now I’m holding 3 little birds, it’s freezing cold, I have no coat but I walk into the woods in my back yard and as the 1st one flies away the other  2 start flapping their wings and take off .  Yay!!!  I was so happy that they were all fine and it was so special to be able to hold them and make sure they were o.k. Sometimes we all need to be reminded of how fragile and precious all life is. I took some new pictures on Friday as well.

About turtlemoondesigns

Sky watcher, dreamer, seeker, stone hoarder.... Finding a love and growing passion for metalsmithing happened as a later in life discovery. I taught preschool for 23 years, but started doing metal work as a hobby about 13 years ago. All I can say is that I get lost and found in it. Three years ago I "retired" from teaching, I'm way too young for that! Now I follow my muse, and feel more filled up in my heart and soul than I could have ever imagined, but I do miss those sweet little faces too!! What a truly amazing thing this has become, my life! Please feel free to contact me with questions or for custom work.

  1. Sounds like you guys need some new stickers for the doors! Maybe the ones you have lost their special powers to keep the birdies away. Looking forward to seeing you guys soon!

  2. Hi! I’m Suzi and I am new here! This is a beautiful place to be and I am glad to have discovered it! I look forward to reading your posts to come. In scrolling down I had an idea for you to do as a piece of jewelry – how about a copper heart with some imprints on it that include three little chickadees and three little jewels! That would be so cute and would remind you of that special day when you helped them out. I’m thinking those chickadees were sent to you on purpose! Thanks for sharing your blogspot. Have an awesome day!
