A Triple Post...or...The Target Birdies Go Hollywood!

triple My Target birdies Pierre and Marie have had a very busy time during my bloggy break...so busy that they decided to participate in a triple post this week! So you will be seeing them first in Barb's What's on Your Wall Wednesday at Grits and Glamour. Be sure to stop by her blog to see who's playing this week and to see what she's up to!


IMG_5913 Their daytime job involves posing as realistically as possible in front of my Spode Blue Room plate on the wall! What do you think? Have they earned their pay?
As a sideline this year, they have qualified for Wordless Wednesday over at Dixie's in French Lique, Texas by agreeing to take care of my...
 

IMG_5886 ...taxes!! The birdies did such a great job that they even got me a refund! Maybe it's because they don't speak English and that helped them to understand the foreign language in those tax forms! Merci, Pierre et Marie!
Be sure to head on over to French Lique to see if everyone else has managed to meet the April 15th deadline!!
 

IMG_5906 Soooo...since everything seemed to be under control, I decided to take a break and left them in the capable hands...er...paws of Isabella. Big mistake!! Hey...wait a minute!! They're escaping! Isabella...stop them! Ohhh noooo!!! Too late! They must have heard about the Target Birds on Holiday instigated by Susan's birdies over at Between Naps on the Porch!


hollywood-sign-address1 They have flown the coop and headed to HOLLYWOOD!! Yes, that's right...Pierre and Marie have gone Hollywood! Tired of receiving minimum wage from corporate, they have taken a cue from Baby Kitty and gone on strike! I have heard through the grapevine that they have even joined the Screen Actors Guild and have already been offered starring roles in a few movies and television series such as....
 

turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Doves...


IMG_5896 Sponge Bobolink: the Movie...


IMG_5892 Parrots of the Caribbean...


IMG_5875 American Ibis...


IMG_5878 Jurassic Partridge...


IMG_5865 and even my favorite...Starling Wars!!!
Now that they've had a taste of Hollywood glamour, they may never come back! And they are scheduled for a tablescape on Thursday!! My only hope is that corporate will be able to negotiate a deal with them! In the meantime, I'm going to head on over to Susan's to see if I can find a trace of them in the other birdie holiday posts!! Please let me know if you see them!! Thanks!

  18. Oh my they definately did a wonderful job accessorizing your gorgeous plate and wow a tax refund they should definately have gotten a pay rise, but what if they make it big in hollywood I suspect you might have to make another trip to Target for Pierre and Marie Take-Two. Kathy.

  29. Hi Debbie! LOL! I am going to have a stomach ache from laughing too much reading all these Target bird posts. Love your Hollywood creativeness! And yes, my eggs and nest are real. I got up on a chair to take a picture cause the guy who watered our plants while we were away told me about the eggs. Was I surprised when a bird flew out, I almost fell off the chair. LOL! I am not sure what kind the eggs are, maybe sparrows....Christine

  39. What a great sense of humor you have! All along I thought these birdies were just sweet little demure salt and pepper shakers. Now I find out that that they have secret lives, and that I probably should lock them up at night.
