Day 191 – On the Fourth day of Christmas

Four Calling Birds : )

On the Fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…

Four calling birds!

Four Bobwhite Quail : )

In case you don’t know already Bobwhite are one of my FAVORITE creatures on the planet. I LOVE their little Bob-bob-white! call so how perfect for the Four Calling birds? AND they are amongst the Bobwhite dinnerware by Red Wing.

Mom and babies

The Mom is an Hors d’oeuvres holder (toothpicks with goodies go into the holes in her back – don’t worry, you’ll see her decked out soon!) while the babies are salt & pepper shakers. All the dishware has the distinctive and very 50’s handpainted quail designs.

Lots of quails!

There are LOTS more than 4 birds on this table but in my world, the more the merrier!

Three...

Three French Hens…

Two...

Two Turtle Doves…

and a...

and a Partridge in a Pear Tree!

Eight days of Christmas left…175 days to go!!

    OK, now I’m really jealous! My mom has a very few pieces of Bobwhite that I have coveted for years. Mostly, I think, because I have fond memories of stolen sips of hot toddy from the mugs! I can hardly afford to even wish for it; the prices on ebay just seem so high. Looking at yours has made my day. I’m glad to see you enjoying it!
