Ooh they are lovely.... I particularly like the one on the right with the pink body, green face and crown, but admit I would be happy giving a home to any one of those little darlings!

Karen said...

Your little chaps are ALL adorable! I am most drawn to the red with the crown - so sweet!

Deborah said...

Congrats on 402, Effie! Of course people like what you do - your birds are no exception. Very generous of you to offer them new homes. Forced to choose, if my name is drawn, I'd give a home to the green headed bird with the crown. Cheers.

Milla said...

I'm so glad you started blogging as I just love your blog - so a big thank you for your inspiration from one of the 400+! :)
Each and every one of your little birdies is cute but I can just hear the pink one call my name... ;D

Glitter Monkey said...

Congrats - that's quite a following Effie!! I am a sucker for a stripy hat and long legs so would love one of those. Don't know how you can bear to part with them though. I would hug it and love it and call it George. Lynn ♥

Oooooh me! me! I love these little birdies and if I was to win one I would love the pinky red one at the front wearing his crown :)

Wow I'm not surprised! I would LOVE to give a birdie a home please! I would choose one of the ones wearing crowns!

Susan said...

What a generous giveaway! I would love to have any of these darlings! Thanks for the chance...

Alison said...

These are all wonderful. If I really had to chose just one it would be the green head with the crown, but I'd be more than happy to give any of them a home :)

Scattychick said...

Wow 400 well done I haven't even reached 100 yet lol :) I have to say my favourite is the one with the one with the blue body and uber long legs. It just feels like he is saying "Yes I am different and proud!" :)

joy said...

Congrats, Effie! I have been a follower for a long time and am in awe of the creative things you do!! I love all of these adorable birds; but would love to own the one in the back with the crown. So darned cute!!

Connie said...

They are all awesome. My favorite is the one with the crown and the blue wings!

Kory said...

It is these very birds that attracted me to your website to begin with! I too love the ones with the crowns.... any which one - perhaps it's just that assumed royalty that is so appealing. Love your work....

nhonzak said...

too cute! thank you for you!!! have a beautiful and blessed day. mr. tall legs is pretty sweet....

Sue said...

Congratulations Effie. I love your projects. Always different and incorporating such vibrant colours. All the birds are lovely and they bring a smile to my face. If I had to choose one though it would be the pink one on the right wearing the crown. I'm still going through my 'pink' phase.

bjcase said...

Love your work! Glad I found your blog!!!

Tami Roth said...

I just love everything you make and these birdies are all precious, but the red one is so proud of his crown isn't he?! Congratulations on your amazing blog and thank you,
Tami, mroth@lcom.net

Judith said...

Oh these are gorgeous. I would love to win one, I would take it to work and sit it on my desk, the sight of it would cheer me up and all my colleagues would be envious of me!

myartfullychaoticlife said...

That's so exciting! Congratulations on 400 followers ~ well deserved! I love your art!

The birds are fabulous! I would love to try paperclay sometime. I really like the tall blue guy with the party hat. Thanks for all the inspiration and for the generous give-away!

Amanda said...

I always love to see what you have been creating. You should have a crown yourself as Queen of things on wheels. They are all pretty spectacular but the red and turquoise combo really appeals....and he's wearing a crown.

thekathrynwheel said...

I'm not at all surprised you have 400 followers! Everything you do is so diverse, you are multi- talented! Always something different to see here :-)
I'd LOVE to give one of your adorable birdies a home (don't know how you can part with one!) I particularly like the red one with the blue bib, and gold crown.
Thanks for the give away x

Karen said...

wow! so many followers! Those birds are gorgous! I would love for the pink one with the yellow beak and blue chest with its cute crown to come live at my house.

lemon said...

Wendy said...

Thank you :) And then I saw the many delights at your blog... wow!! I'll be back regularly, that's for sure! Hugs and happy weekend, Wendy

Brodders said...

I like the dozy lankylooking one at the back :)

kimmysue said...

Wow! Your birdies are so colorful and arty! I would love to have one of them perching on a tablespoon or windowsill in my house. I particularly like the green one with the red and white striped hat. It was hard deciding which one I like best, though. :)

nerllybird said...

I love these birds so much, they make me smile whenever I see them! If you pull my name out I would love to have any of them at all! This is a lovely giveaway, thank you :)

Debbie said...

Congratulations on the 400 followers milestone. The small bird hiding would look fab on the windowsill of my craftroom. Thanks to the posts on your blog they often kick start my mojo, love your quilting posts.
Fingers will be tightly crossed
