On the one sunny morning we had, the hubby and I visited Parrot Mountain. Birds galore!
I just adore birds! There were birds everywhere.
I wore the Mexican peasant blouse that I got in Epcot last summer. I sewed furiously before vacation to get my patio dress skirt done. I also plan on making a matching blouse but that didn't happen.
I had such a blast looking at all of the birds!
Birds doing cute things!!!!
There was a huge area in the center of Parrot Mountain where you could hold and feed the birds.
Some of the birds could talk and every once in a while there'd be a "Hello" or "Goodbye" from one of the birds.
The weather did not agree with my hair so it was mostly straight after just a few hours. And one night my wet set didn't even dry! Ack!
Another fun part of the bird sanctuary was that they had baby birds for sale and you could hold them! Ahhhh! Baby bird!
And they had the two types of birds that we really want to get, the African grey (above) and sun conures! Alas, no new babies for us right now.
Back to the skirt-Some friends of mine recently moved and weren't two excited with the yellow curtains that the old owners left in their new house so I adopted them! I've been wanting a vintage patio dress for forever and this bright yellow was just the perfect color for it! I also used a bunch of vintage trim I found at Sew Dayton including the tiny gold ric rac! Score! These skirts use HEAPS of trim so I did have to add a few packs of red ric rac from Jo-Ann's to the mix but I love shopping local!
And I felt just as beautiful as the birds in it!
