My colorful trees

The birds are supposed to be leaving for warmer countries as we speak, but I had some surprise visitors in my autumn colored trees today. They were very lively, tweeting and hopping around, and very, very hard to photograph.



I haven't seen these little tweets before, but I have a pretty good idea who their father is, the family resemblance is just...clear.



These little birdies seem to be coming all colors imaginable, and they also have pretty feathers mixing hand knit and felted wool and happy reused cotton scraps. They all have also passed a hard training-period recently, and they are ready to work as keymasters (taking care of your keys all day long) or the bag-brighteners (autumn bag just needs a happy tweet). They also would love to just sit on your lap and sing all day.



The photo shoot itself was an experience also, it was shining, raining, storm-winding, still, gray and bright withing those fifteen minutes! So some more detailed portraits and other significant information can be found here.



Happy Tuesday!

Yours,
Mia

They're lovely Mia, I especially love the little sleepy one! :)
You have my sympathy with the weather, I know exactly how you feel. Although it actually managed to stay dry today!!Looking at the sky, not for long I fear. :(
Happy Tuesday Mia,

Thank you, Viv!

We have had pretty decent autumn considering it snowed first time Oct 13. last year ;) But these changes are hard to take: You look from window that it shines, and when you're out ready to bike it's raining horizontally and storming... Huh.

Have a happiest week!

Yours,
Mia

Hi Jane,

Thank you, and yes, these are going into the shop one by one (and more to come it seems!). It's almost sad that you've heading into autumn (finally) but really it's not as we can start talking C-things soon!

Happy day and a big kiss to Billy!

Yours,
Mia

Oooh lovely birds Mia! They really cheer up our day! I love all of them but the white with closed eye is touching me a little bit more - she is really cute!

Hi ... I write first and then read others and I see that all we love mostly the 'sleepy' one!
I hope the weather decides to stay more sunny and dry!

Hi Teje,

It seems that the white-birdie is a favorite here :)

The weather is getting rainier and colder here I'm afraid but luckily I have your blog to see some sunshine!

Happy week!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Thank you, Helen!

The little tweets are sending you many happy greetings! Wishing you sunny and crafty week!

Yours,
Mia

Hi Mia,
What lovely birdies you have. They also want the weather to stay nice so they can stay and not fly away. I don't blame them. I love them all and think any key would be honored to hang with the birdies.
Have a nice rest of the week. xoRobin❤

Hello Robin,

We really needed something colorful and happy here, it's been so gray and miserable here...

Have a wonderful and sunny week!

Yours,
Mia

Anne said...

Mia, love these "super baby" birdies. It looks like a little rainbow hanging on your tree.
We are lucky this week with good weather but last week was too rainy and cold!!

Thanks for sharing some new birdies. Happy October.....

Mia! Ihania Ihania Ihania kaikkia oot tehnyt ihan satamäärin. Mie aattelin kysyä että oisko meillekin tällasia tulossa, avaimenperälintusia? -Jonna nupputiikista :D

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
