Post No. 2218 "Warm Clothes For The Birdies" and lovely mail

The birdies here in my garden are already very hungry  and it seems they need many of the bird fat balls I have hoarded . Last week I took all the 23 sacks in total 460 bird fat balls that were available on sale at my local Lidl  but I am sure that will not last very long - they are ever-hungry ! They need
isolating fat under their feathers. Maybe I should knit them warm clothes - not that they get too fat and overweighted and cannot escape hunting cats fast enough!

My "warm clothes for the birdies" spread for "101 Ways To Keep Warm", Chris' November theme over at

And look what Yvonne sent me - I won her napkin candy - lucky me - and got all these fantastic napkins and a beautiful tag! Thank you Yvonne that's a great delight for me and I will use them well .

 Happy weekend!

  3. How thoughtful you are Susi, i'm sure you very much loved by our feathered friends. I did giggle when you suggested knitting them winter woolies and had visions of Christmas jumpers. Your journal page is magnificent with everyone of the birds looking very fetching in their winter hats. Thank you for sharing and making me smile.
    Have a fabulous weekend. Hugs Tracey x

    Schönes Wochenende wünsche ich dir!

  7. Deine Seite zu besuchen bringt mir jedesmal Sonnenschein ins Herz und ein Lächeln in mein Gesicht! Zauberhaft sind deine Vögelchen in der warmen Winterkleidung - du bist eine goldige Vogel-Mutti! Wie zufrieden und glücklich deine Kleinen aus dem Bild grinsen - ja, sie haben es sehr gut bei dir!

  10. Oh my, your three little birdies are so cute - I love them all! They are looking nice and warm in their clothes, I smiled at the one with the leg warmers on 😀. Wow, it sounds like making your birds some clothes would be a cheaper option if they get through all those fat balls 😁. I love how you portrayed the birds being warm with their warm colours and glows against the cold blue snowy background - brrrr 😉. This would make such a lovely Christmas card too! I hope you are having a lovely weekend and wishing you a great evening dear Susi! J 😊
    p.s. sorry I haven't visited earlier I've been a little unwell with a migraine/headache, I'm feeling much better today though. J x

  11. Du hast aber auch immer die tollsten Ideen, den Piepmätzen einfach Wintermützchen zu verpassen! So drollig sehen sie damit aus! Wenn morgen Früh meine Meisen mit Mütze zur Futterstelle kommen, wundert mich gar nichts mehr - es steht ihnen richtig gut.
    Liebe Grüße Ulrike

  12. Also - what a lovely prize you won from Yvonne! It was such a thoughtful Halloween treat for us all to take part in and they have found the perfect new owner, I can't wait to see what you create with them 😁. Have fun! J x

  13. You always draw so well, and these are truly DARLING little birdies. Love the hats and the leg warmers. And I love your thoughtfulness in providing food for the birds in your area. I make peanut butter and bird seed balls for mine, but it's not winter here yet, so they can still find food for awhile. This is a an absolutely perfect spread for Chris's AJJ theme. It is wonderful.

    I am so in awe of those napkins. I know you will use them well, and I'm sure both deer will show up soon in your art. I know you will put them all to good use, too.

  14. Your birds on the journal spread look so happy and have lovely faces and rosy cheeks. It must be the hats that are keeping them warm.
    I think the birds in your garden are well looked after, with all the stock of food you have stored for them.
    Enjoy using the napkins, I am so pleased they arrived safely..
    Happy weekend
    Yvonne xx

  24. Oh My! Your birds are so cute, especially in their little outfits! I spent quite a lot on bird food yesterday at our RSPB shop! We went to see the murmuration but was was quite far away! This is such a lovely AJJ entry Susi! Hugs, Chrisx

  25. Lucky You and I love your cute birdies!!!

  26. Fabulous page, Susi. I love your beautiful birds. And I love the napkins set from Yvonne. I am sure you will use them in the best way! Kisses, my friend.

  27. I love your fun birds! I would love to see the little outfits if you decide to knit some. ;)
    What a beautiful selection of napkins. You will have a wide range of topics to journal about.

    und ganz süß;) Klasse
    Liebe Grüße

  29. i adore your warmly dressed birdies! it is a beautiful journal page. and lucky you to get such fun goodies! those napkins are way too pretty to use for eating messes but just perfect for art. have a happy week! xo

  30. What a lovely idea to knit hats for the birdies. I think they are all girl birdies with their mascaraed eyelashes. Your painting is so heart-warming. Wouldn't it be nice if we could help the birdies out like this in the cold cold weather, maybe invite them in to sit by the fire.
    460 fat balls! - your birds will be so pleased.

  31. Hi Suzi, I am in love with your whimsical birds, they are fantastic! Congratulations on receiving the napkin candy, they look fabulous. Great for collage :) Take care, Shirleyxx

  32. These birdies in their warm clothes just make me grin - pure delight, my friend!
