Decorative accessories and vintage finds
Hi Julie, how totally gorgeous. So glad you were able to take him home, Tam x
He is gorgeous Julie. I am with you on this one as I am rather partial to a bit of taxidermy, and I will admit to having a Leopard skin rug, getting on for a 100 years old I might add! I also have a Tortoise ashtray (although I don't smoke)and also a live one wandering round the house. Have a great day.Jo xx
Very lovely! You can be proud about this find - a beautiful bird in a wonderful box!Greetings from the Périgord,karin
Hi Julie, I think he's rather lovely.....I bid on a canary at auction the other day, but the bids went too high, very sad about that! I can tell you. Obviously meant to be yours xx
I like your slow reveal....! Obviously destined for you - that's great - I've missed buying things, but rarely seen them again like that. Well done. I like the simple box. Abby x
Lovely! What a great find x
Lady luck was certainly smiling on you! Oh, how many times have I been in doubt and left that little item behind always to kick myself. So pleased that your little bird is 'home to roost' and it's in the perfect place too :o)Best wishesRose H
Well I like them and think their facinating :) .. it looks wonderful with the shutters x
While I wouldn't want anyone to do this today, I do love these old ones!
I love your kingfisher!!!! I would have bought him as well, he is wonderful!! Have a great week!Chris :o)
Congratulations - it really was meant to be! Like Abby, I like your slow reveal... :-) Gorgeous wooden box!Love,Helena
What a beautiful little thing to have finally become the owner of. I always think in these situations that you were meant to have it! You will enjoy it all the more because of the wait....
I thought you had bought a candle box when I saw the first picture, I was not expecting this little chap! I think he will look wonderful in your hallway, where all the light will show off his lovely coloured feathers.Abby x
I can see how you loved this little gem. It looks quite rare which is all the lovelier.Love your blog and I am enjoying reading you earlier postsHelen Tilston
How lovely that you got a second chance to buy the little Kingfisher, I love the box that he's in. Thankyou for your kind comments Julie, yes I am lucky that things have advanced in keyhole surgery. I don't think I could bear being stuck in hospital when the weather is so wonderful. Have a great weekend Julie, love Linda x
