Hey all~

I am working on one of those bird chandeliers that so many of our GJers have made and wouldn't you know that I can't find six bird figurines anywhere....I'm thinking I would like them similar, maybe even the same bird in different poses. I'm looking for resin....got any suggestions or sources?

Hey Marlene - I got mine at Stein's garden center ( I think it's just a local store - I'm not sure. ) They had a few on clearance - I got them - but they have more at reg. price.
( 3 /$10.00 ) If you are desperate - I can go "shopping" for you ! LOL

Hobby Lobby, if you have one...resin birds there...also, I usually ck the specialty shops...garden shops, home decor, etc....can usually get them for under $5. Good luck, Marlene! Jeanne S.

Dollar Tree has several different bird statues.

(on my chandelier, I did 4 birdhouses and two birds, and two teacup-saucer things. Tho in this photo, one spot still needed a teacup n saucer. Then painted it all white like SuzieRose's that I loved.

I found some at Rite-Aid they have all their garden stuff at 1/2 off for awhile. Those from $ tree are VERY NICE..with real feet even.

Hey if you ladies see anything in regards to a crow..let me know. I want to put a realistic looking crow statue/sculpture on top of an old shovel in the garden.

I have a collection of doves I often see at thrift stores. They come in 2 or 3 different positions and are supposed to look like alabaster but they are resin. I have been saving them for a project like this too.

Thanks all! I will definitely scope out the dollar tree here. Wish we had a Hobby Lobby, but we just have AC Moore and Michael's. I'll keep hunting....

To 'socalliegal', You could paint any bird black & use it as a crow.

I have a couple dollar tree ones from a couple years ago. NOW that I see this year's models complete with legs, I'll have to go shopping tomorrow!!! They're really cute!

And, I loved seeing your white chandelier again...it is so very pretty!

Below is a link to a picture of the white doves I see at all the local TS's. I believe I have 5 or 6 of them that I have collected. Probably spent about $5 for the bunch.

Here is a link that might be useful: Alabaster Doves
