Let's use this blog forum for something really important (for once): feedback.
I had this idea (you know that can only be the beginning of trouble) to add a little whimsy to our entry and paint something perched above the front door. What the heck - I've got five minutes, black paint, and I can find plenty of bird images on google to cut out and use as a template.
So now that they are there, I'm stumped. Sierra says she doesn't get it, Brendan's mad that I didn't paint them with eyeballs, and after seeing what birds can do to a car parked outside, the boys were placing bets on whether or not someone could, in theory, get pooped on.
I can't decide if they're "unexpected," which is what I was going for, or just "cute," something I detest. And, of course, Roger is working tonight so he can't throw in his two cents, which will most likely consist of "What's up with the birds?"
What do you think?
If the word cute is used, they're history.

  1. I vote keep them - "unexpected" for sure. I think a better description would be "they are very Rebecca's house".

  2. I like them, infact I saw them on a blog a few weeks ago, and was like...that is cool! let the boys think they they will poop on someone, it might keep them busy?

  3. Are they on the inside or outside? I would also say unexpected and I like the black.

  6. What a great idea, Heather! For that reason alone (target practice)I should make some for my house! Bob went hunting this weekend so we'll see how good his aim really is. =)

  7. Well I'm saying it... I think they're cute! I'd like them on a pillow:) without the poop.

  8. I love the silhouette craze right now. Totally impressed with your painting 5 minute painting talents. Your birds are great. Maybe they need a vinyl lettering quote to go with them so they make sense to your questioning kids. Something like "spread your wings and fly" or "birds of a feather flock together" or "one flew over the cuckoo's nest". Just an idea. I vote to keep the birds.
