Shadows of the Week

Sunday, July 25, 2010













Submissions: (1) New bird necklace, I keep wanting to wear it with everything! (2) Baby mockingbird found by a trashcan with no trace of a nest anywhere. Cute and grouchy, had a little birdy scowl on his face and kept jumping around and crying. Only thing that calmed him down was the warmth of our hands which he would snuggle into. Felt so great to hold him. While searching for what to feed him we discovered that it's illegal to keep a wild bird in California and had to find a licensed mockingbird rehabber for him which was a lot easier than it sounds. Thank you to Wild Wings of California, they were amazing about taking him in (3) Figs from the tiny fig tree in our yard, it's no more than a few feet tall but already has about 15 figs growing (4) Baby Chloé at Natasha's BBQ last Sunday. She's adorable, like holding a strawberry shortcake doll come to life (5) Pink or maybe fuchsia roses from the backyard (6 + 7 + 8) Ordered from Diana of our.city.lights etsy shop *HERE* and this is how my goodies arrived. Very much a fan of her work and colors. Beautiful and soft aren't they? I'd love to live in that ethereal world she captures (9) George is a cardboard box feen. Not just to play in but also to sleep in. Lucky for him my online shopping keeps a steady supply.

Thank you again to Tracey of Hey Harriet for her amazing Gallery project. If you're not already a part of it be sure to join today!

Your bird necklace is gorgeous! No wonder you keep wearing it.

Diana's photos are so beautiful, I love her 'Nerd' postcards.

The necklace is wonderful :)

Sarah said...

These are all wonderful Gabbi! That bird necklace is beautiful-I am jealous! The baby bird is so sweet, the figs gorgeous colours, the baby chubby and adorable, the rose lovely and the photos too. The last one is my favourite though-Cassie is a big fan of the cardboard box too-and my internet shopping does what yours does! Have you ever seen the book 'My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes'?
Have a lovely week!

Oh, these are so wonderful! I would not be able to stop wearing that bird necklace either.

And a baby girl and a baby mockingbird in one photo collection? Too much cuteness!

I love your bird necklace- so beautiful! I would want to wear it with everything too-

Who knew is was illegal to keep a wild bird in California- Glad it was easy to find a home for him.

I seriously want to squeeze that baby- Like gently but still.

I love these photos, especially the one with the bird.

Gabbi said...

Thank you everyone!!♡ And Sarah, that book looks so cute... I most definitely have to find it and Ren, I'm with you on the baby squeezing. She was so cute, only 5 months old and full of smiles. And Lady Thirty, Lakriz sounds adorable. What does Lakriz mean I wonder? Off to google it...

Gorgeous photos, Gabbi! Love your necklace and the baby mockingbird -- so glad you were able to get him to a rehab place, even though it meant giving him up! Maybe one day you'll see him flying around. :)

I don't blame you...I'd be wearing that necklace with everthing as well! What a sweet bambino - how precious! Love those file folders - what a cool way to keep organized - and George - well, he's cool no matter what he's up to :)

Gabbi said...

Thank you girls!♡ And yeah Christina, I agree on Diana's shop... such an eye for detail, also think that of your lovely shop! And Rebecca, I thought the same thing about the Mockingbird... thank you for writing that! :) And Summer Girls... I shall be passing the compliment on to fat George! *besos*

Sam said...

Glorious post Gabbi sweetie! I have to choose George in a box as my fave shot but that mocking bird chick has stolen my heart too! Diana's postcards look so nice - I think I may well need to purchase some more now that I've seen your set!

I love the way you give us such a wonderful variety of treats for your shadow shots!! XOXO's
