A mirror this pretty has to make you look good. I love the rich colors, and of course the gorgeous peacock! It comes with a velveteen pouch and is just the thing for a quick lipstick touch-up. Available from missmary.

Birdie Gift Bags for Baby

Remember these cute bags the next time you get an invitation to a baby shower. Made of heavy duty glossy paper with plastic handles, they're reusable and the perfect finishing touch for that adorable diaper bag or set of onesies you found. Also, if you need a beautiful letterpressed card to go with your gift, check out my shop (sarahridgley) over at Etsy. I do custom baby announcements as well, just so you know!

Terra Cotta Water Whistle


Ten Thousand Villages is an amazing site featuring handmade products from around the world. This terra cotta whistle from Cameroon makes all sorts of warbling bird calls depending on how you hold it. Simply fill the whistle with water and start blowing! It's quite addictive.

French Touche

Très belle, n'est-ce pas? French Touche is an online boutique store with the most adorably French accessories you can imagine. This Oiseau Perché (bird on a perch) is my current favorite, but it's hard to choose, they have so many fabulous things.

Audubon



I am in love with this gorgeous china from Tiffany & Co. The pattern was inspired by 19th Century Japanese bird paintings and features an array of exotic beauties. I started collecting this pattern when I got married, and I can tell you it makes a beautiful table!
