I'm glad my red bird got his photo in your post! I love these birds so much. Mine is sitting on the coffee table in my keeping room, right near my red sofa. He's a focal point in the room!

If you ever get to making accessories, let me know.  Cheesy

They are so cute! I love Karl's little crown, it's so sweet Smiley

I guess their stand is a lamp base?

Blaine! My bird's name is Blaine! He's in the picture with Racky's red guy.  Ok, I'll admit I can't remember the name of my yellowy-brown guy...can you refresh my memory, Babs? Its a good thing I don't have kids, I'd forget their names too.

What about little ribbon attached to each side of the base of the crown, to tie around their heads like a bonnet. That would be so regal.   Grin

I wouldn't have felt right not including them!

I'm really thinking about accessories now. I know crowns and hats would be great but what other kinds should they have?

Totally think this would be a great idea!

Yours is named Blaine.  Grin Hehe, I had to look it up.

They are so cute! I love Karl's little crown, it's so sweet Smiley

I guess their stand is a lamp base?

Yes and no.
I used those lamp, ceiling light fixture parts that actually go on the ceiling to cover the electrical box and for the life of me can't think of what they are called. The stem part is some all-thread type stuff. All found in the lamp fixing area of Lowe's hehe.

I'm embarrassed to say that I can't remember mine's name either.  Embarrassed

As for accessories, what about a nice cape?

I'm so bummed that I didn't think to write them on the underside like I have been doing...  Roll Eyes

Racky I tried going back and finding the name of yours as well, haven't found it...yet.

A cape eh?

To make up for his apparent lack of wings, maybe?

Ooh, how about wings!  hehe!

How could I have forgotten that?!? He looks like a Horace.  Cheesy

If not a cape, maybe a collar. Or wings. That would be cool too.

I would suggest trousers, but that would be a bit tough. Unless they had velcro on the sides like the kind Chippendales dancers wear.

(Yes, I totally amused myself with that mental image and No, I've never actually seen any Chippendales)
