It has always been the custom with my family that our holiday decorations remained up and on display until after the Epiphany (aka Three Kings Day) which traditionally falls on Jan. 6th. This year was no exception. So last week was spent taking down wreaths and holiday decor and carefully packing them back into their boxes to be stashed away for next year.
One of my holiday treasures is a small tree purchased about 4 or 5 years ago through Hallmark.com. A cute folksy, country type decoration featuring tiny lights, some lengths of raffia, and 9 small mushroom birds. Nine ? Rather an odd number, why not 12, make it a dozen ?
Have no idea why the powers that be decided 9 was good, but I've always had to display this little bit of decor up against the wall as there were not enough little birds to adequately adorn the small tree.
I've searched the Internet and have not come across a source for these cute, chubby little fellows and would greatly appreciate it if anybody could direct me to a source where I could purchase more...at least 3 more. However I do want to avoid the wholesale importer that will require me to place an order for 999 of these little guys, as I merely wish to fill out the miniature tree, not start my own mushroom bird farm. : )
