They say birds fly south for the winter, so rather than missing the sight of beautiful birds during these cold months, I like to decorate my house with unique bird décor found at Wishful Living. I started out decorating my baby girl's room with bird houses made out of vintage barn wood. Then I found beautiful bird pictures to accent her nursery walls and even a metal jewelry holder adorned with birds, which makes a great place to hold cute little head bands.
The desire to have more bird décor in my home blossomed as I found beautiful pillows with embroidered birds for the living room and a metal mantel clock with a bird attached. There are various antique bird cages throughout the store, some of which stand tall and would look great next to my favorite lounging chair. I found a beautiful canvas painting of a bird at Wishful Living, which hangs on the wall near our front door for all to see that enter into our home.
One would think I stopped decorating with birds after both the living room and nursery were finished, however I walked in the store recently to find some more beautiful bird pictures and wooden bird figurines for the kitchen. Who could resist the most adorable clock to hang in the kitchen with vibrant colors and a beautiful bird painted in the center of the clock? Needless to say my house is now filled with so many special bird décor items and I was able to decorate with all of these items as Wishful Living has fantastic prices!
So whether you are in the market for a metal bird cage from Indonesia or a bird house made out of vintage barn wood from the USA, you will find a variety of amazing products to choose from at this unique boutique. There are many other fabulous bird décor items within the store such as wooden key holders, small jewelry or keepsake boxes and even a beautiful jewelry necklace with a bird house pendant. This store is filled with bird treasures!
As you walk through the store each room holds a variety of special gifts! Looking for a special gift for a friend? You can grab a unique card with birds designed on it. If roosters or owls are more up your alley, don't fret as there are plenty of spectacular items with roosters and owls to complete the décor in your home! Wishful Living has made my home charming and fun to show off to my family and friends when they come over!

Whether you chose to dress up an outfit with a bold solid print red scarf or perhaps one with intricate designs, you will be certain to fall in love with these scarves!
Beautiful, soft, woven scarves in a variety of colors come from Guatemala and are available as well. These scarves are great for tying in various ways whether you chose to braid a scarf on one side or simply warp it around your neck. There are so many fun colors to choose from, I often have a hard time deciding which scarf to wear for the day. They are so comfortable and warm.
Wishful Living also offers a variety of light weight summer scarves. I imagine these scarves would be perfect for tying in your hair. With fun prints such as roses, dragonflies and butterflies that come in many different colors, these scarves are bound to turn some heads and get you a few compliments. A wonderful woman came into the store the other day, and said she doesn't feel dressed completely unless she is wearing a scarf with her outfit. Scarves dress up any piece of clothing and add the extra pizazz we all adore.
Perhaps you could purchase a scarf to tie to your bag or luggage? Does your loveable dog need a scarf to strut his/her stuff while going for a walk in the park? Scarves can also adorn our tables and chairs creating a unique décor for any household. These beautiful scarves could be hung on a rod in a kitchen window to create a beautiful valance look and let just the right amount of light in. The possibilities are endless as to what you can do with a scarf!
