A Bronzy Thrifted Bird

I have this whole thing I do at the thrift store where I find a set of little birds and I think to myself, "It's too bad they aren't cuter; I'd buy them if they were." Then I think, well, they're only fifty cents, so I buy them and bring them home. Then I decide they're darling, and am so glad I spent all that money.

This little bird has a matching other bird. They almost look like they're covered in dirt, which I love!

You know, this really reminds me of a time (back in the early 70's I'd say) when people were using brown shoe polish to distress their newer-looking statuary, plaster ornaments, etc. Maybe the "dirt" you've described is really shoe polish!

I buy little birds at the thrift store too! I don't care if they are ugly - they have to fit in the palm of my hand.
