Merry Christmas and the Happiest of Holidays to one and all!


Photographing birds on vintage objects was all quite accidental.

In short, photographing birds on vintage objects was all quite accidental. One winter I ended up having a lot of time on my hands at home. Watching the woodland birds was a peaceful past-time. I began photographing the birds at our feeder. At Christmas, sunflower seeds were sprinkled among holiday decorations like my childhood ice skates and a vintage jingle bell. The birds looked like part of the display. I discovered that birds will dare to do just about anything for tasty seeds.

"Bird feeders" became vintage objects like a blue canning jar or a red lantern. Two very different interests (wild birds and vintage items) melded together in a new hobby - creative photography. There were many scavenger hunts through our home looking for interesting vintage objects to place outside with the birds. As my talent for enticing birds grew, my camera skills also grew. The photographs were shared on handmade cards; then placed on canvas prints for craft shows. Oh, yes...this Etsy site was started.

Photography has brought me into contact with many people. The banner and splash page look gorgeous thanks to my niece, Laure Kline ( My husband enthusiastically did everything from technical computer stuff to hauling the beautiful barn wood display to craft shows. Friends and family encouraged me. I love talking with people at craft shows. People are the biggest blessings.

So, there you have accidental melding of three interests. I want my photography to echo David's words in Psalms 150:6: "Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD!"

1. The birds landed on the items.
2. AzarEl is a little known name from the Bible.

1. True - The birds REALLY did land on the items. They work on the "cheep", for black oil sunflower seeds. My feathered friends land on the deck railing, about four feet outside my window.

2. True - It means "The Lord is my helper."
