The smallest was gifted to me by my Brother-in-Law – whom I was visiting as I was helping my sister paint pumpkins. I told him I wanted one and he surprised me by buying this one! He also tricked us, because initially he told me it was already sold… he just didn’t share that it was to him!
I took a break and walked over to Smith’s Concrete Products to look at some unfinished statues, not knowing my brother’s secret. I was also shown this beautiful tall Bird Girl Statue – since I had been looking for so long and I have plenty potential places for these girls to live…well, I got the tall one as well!
The tall one is very, very heavy…after we moved her to the front and placed her beneath the Cypress tree I kept referring to the statue as ‘she’. Dearest said – it’s a statue. Yes, but I like to personalize my statues – I am thinking of naming them Eliza and Ella. What do you think?
Ella is much easier to move and she is featured on our front porch in my Fall Front Porch Vignette – which I’ll share more tomorrow – oh, look! I missed cutting this tag on the basket! Sighing out Loud!
The original Bird Girl statue was made famous by being photographed for a book cover, ‘Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil’. She is one of four bronze statues – this style is not exactly the same – you can read more about the mysterious, romantic statue here.
Now, I’m contemplating puttng some bird food in the dishes – to attract birds…would you?
