That saying reminds me so much of my husband’s now deceased Grandmother.
She was a real character and would say “this is for the birds” often.
So it gave me a chuckle and I thought of her on this post.
It all started with this pretty little bird tea towel.
While browsing Marshall’s one day.
I love it, so in the cart it went.
Then there were the cute little dessert plates I spied next.
I am onto something I thought, this is for the birds!
then I spotted the vinyl bird wall decals.
So all three are now in my cart and I seriously had no clue what to do with them.
tea towel $3.99
So for less than $25.00, plus a $10.00 coupon = $15.00 of clueless home decor.
When I came home, looked around….it was the obvious choice.
Needless to say…I love it!
Believe it or not, Mr. Mike does not mind it either.
I love the fact that I can change out those plates per season to reflect the same.
Hope you like my “this is for the birds” too:)
Hope you come back again to visit.
Very cute. I love them.
I love it too Debbie! I love the tea towel!!! It looks very Anthro to me. I have spent a fortune on tea towels that I could not resist. Will have to pop into my Marshalls to see if they have that cute towel. I am a nut for birds!!!
Oh Debbie, how cute…I love it!! My grandmother would use that phrase too. I

Love, love, love it!!! You are sooooo creative!
Love it! Looks fantastic!
I love birds and your burlap valances are darling topped with the twig and bird silhouette.
Wow, you were on a roll. Love the cute towel and then the plates. Looks perfect.
Love, love your birds. We had a flock of robin red breasts here this weekend and I nearly killed myself trying to snap pics of them.
HI Debbie Dear! Yes, I love this! What a sweet wall decal and those dishes are so cute. Love the little tea towel. Isn’t it funny how the sayings of family members pop up from time to time. Love it!
Be a sweetie,
This is so cute.
I get it now.
i love it all goes together so well 🙂
That little towel is so you Debbie!! It all looks so good, and I LOVE your new lighting!!

This is so cute Debbie! I love birds and this just makes me smile!

I love the vinyl over your windows, Debbie! It looks really cute!
Debbie, it’s clueless turned fabulous. I LOVE the end result.
Don’t you just love it when you find things that instantly all go together? I think that looks darling!! Good shopping!
What a great bird trio you found. Those plates are just adorable, I have never seen a pattern like that. You will get lots of use from them. I can see them at a party now. So glad hubby liked your new look.
Oh Debbie, what a wonderful idea! I love the plates. You are so clever!
I adore it. I’m a big bird lover. Not BIG Bird, just birds in general. Very versatile.
Love the way you change per season. Everytime I read your blog you inspired me. A little change with a GREAT mind like you, a home becomes a santuary from time to time.
The vinyl wall decals are very nice. If we had a Marshall’s … I would be on my way to get some. Love them; the tea towel and the way you used them with the cute plates.
Thanks for hosting the always FUN Newbie Party including Newbie Grads too.

Oh my (&*^*&&! I say, “this is for the birds” all the time! Matt actually makes fun of me for saying it…that and “We’ll just play it by ear.” I love, love, love the plates!!!
How adorable!! I LOVE birds and decorating with them! This is a cheerful corner, makes doing dishes all that more pleasant…well, maybe not but the corner is cute!!
That is so adorable Deb, love the plates and towel and the decal really goes with everything!

This is so cute! Love the bird plates! And they look perfect paired on the wall with the branch decal!
I grew up hearing my grandmother and mother say “This is for the birds!” I think I still say it on occasion and my children think it’s funny. This post certainly brought a smile to my face!
This is so darn sweet!
Of course your valances are for the birds too!
Of course your valances are for the birds too! Or maybe they are the cat’s meow? Did gramma say that one?
Debbie, This is so cute! I love that the experience made you think of family. Blessings, Ginger

Your little birdie collection is adorable, Debbie! I seem to be a serial collector (not cereal collector…). Somehow I’ve managed to start an ironstone mini-pitcher/ creamer collection over the last couple of weeks. Those darn thrift stores! 🙂
Cute little birdies….I just followed you on twitter and pinterest. How on earth did I not know you were on either of these??? Yay. Do you have an Instagram?
I love your bird silhouettes above the windows. Rally cute. Where in the world did you find a coupon for Marshall’s? I’ve shopped there forever and never seen/heard of a coupon for there. I know you’re busy, but would you mind responding to my quewstions? Thanks!

Hi there…I have a Marshall’s credit card and when you shop there and spend 100.00 or more they send you reward coupons.
It’s an adorable idea, Debbie, and looks perfect above your kitchen window. Love those darling plates, too!
