Has Anyone Seen This Little Bird?


We all have little things that peak our interest and for some reason I came across this little bird on Ebay and I thought how cute. No one had bid on it, so I put in a max bid of something like $14.99. At that time, I really didn't believe anyone was collecting little birds, oh how silly of me to think that. Well needless to say I did not win the little bird. Don't you just love them??
Now I am on the look out for little birds, and as yet I have not seen this one. Why you ask? Beats me, I need another collection like I need another head. I tell myself all the time "give up, stop looking". I really do need to down size instead of collect, but each time I'm out and my car veers into an antique store, there I am looking for this little bird. HELP!
I know there are many of you out there that can relate to my collecting problem. If you have seen this bird, let me hear from you or if you have the same collecting problem, jump in and tell me your collecting story. Either way I would love to hear from you.

Those birds are so sweet! I love their colors. Everything we go past a rummage sale, or flea market. Before I say anything my daughter says,"do we have to stop." With me it is anything vintage, doilies, teacups, linens, silver, etc. The list goes on....
