  2. SaRaH L. says:

    I imagine that birdie is thinking about how breathtakingly gorgeous God’s creation is all around him/her! (atleast that’s what I would be thinking if I had the freedom to roam around high above the earth all day). thanks for this giveaway, Lisa – your blog is such an encouragement :)

  3. Royce says:

    I imagine the birdie is thinking about where to find the best nest making materials.

  4. Jen says:

    I think the little birdie is saying “pick this lady, pick this lady-she’ll take good care of me”! I love your designs- and this one especially *cute*!

  5. Jenny says:

    It’s thinking about how peaceful it is above all the hustle and bustle below.

  6. Jenny says:

    I’m sharing this on facebook

  7. KateinCleveland says:

    That sweet little birdie is imagining how lovely he’d look around my neck and thinking about how much joy he’d bring me! Thanks for the opportunity!

  8. Ellen says:

    Love it! Anywhere has to be calmer than here right now :)

    I also just started a photography class, so the book is an awesome find.

  9. Virginia says:

    Gorgeous. I absolutely love this! That birdie on a wire is thinking about taking off, wind running through her feathers. Only birds can have that kind of freedom!

  10. Amy says:

    I believe the birdie is thinking “another perfect day”…something we should all aspire to;)

    I think he’s thinking about giving his mommy a hug instead of having a tantrum. [yes, that's been my day!]

  13. Melinda says:

    Every time I see a bird on a wire, I think of that Pixar short. All the little birds on the wire pick on the big bird, but in the end their rudeness ends up harming only themselves.

  14. Laura says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I think the birdie is just taking in the amazing sunset.

  15. I bet that little birdie is waiting for his friends. :) I hardly ever see birds perching alone!

    With my first child’s high school graduation coming up in the spring, I am melancholy about my children leaving the nest. I imagine this mommy bird thinking and dreaming of all her baby birdies and what their future holds!

  22. Anna Bonnema says:

    I love this new necklace! I call my ‘oldest’ daughter ( 5 1/2 year old triplets) birdie as a nickname and so wearing this necklace would remind me that my little birdie is thinking that all she needs is me to be present…and maybe snuggle up on the couch in the “nest” we make out of down blankets (we live in Michigan!!) Thank you for the opportunity! Anna

  23. Heather says:

  30. Barb L says:

    The birdie is wondering when spring will be arriving up north so she can fly back and make people delighted to see her again.

  31. paige says:

  36. JEB says:

    Oh that little birdie is soooooo thinking how pretty ALL this snow we have in my neck of the woods looks from way up high.

  43. I think the birdie is thinking about whether the window in front of him is really a windor cleaned with windex or whether it’s not a window at all :-)

  44. thegypsymama says:

And YOU made me a necklace to help me remember it! Thank you by the way. I’ve enjoyed it! Oh I hope I hope I win the birdie…love it! Great job! Keep blogging…it’s inspiring!

  50. Rachelle says:

    i think those little birdies are saying to themselves “we got away from those 2 two cats again” “ha ha”

  53. Gin says:

    I think he’s looking at his feathered friends and thinking, “should I follow or make my own way?”

  54. Maybe he’s thinking, “I love just sitting here and taking it all in.”

  55. kaley smith says:

    i think hes thinking “wow, those people down there are all nuts, why dont they slow down”

  56. Michelle B. says:

    “life is good” (whether you’re a bird or not)

    I had to smile the other night at a meeting – I looked around at the 10 women there and four of us were wearing pieces of your making – we love Lisa Leonard in Michigan!

  57. Bonnie Jones says:

    Thinking about his love bird. :)

  58. Kelly Long says:

    I think he is thinking “better head south”

  59. Kim says:

    I love the necklace! I think the bird is just basking in the peacefulness of it all. Maybe the birdie is a mommy who just scored a rare few minutes away from her babies…

  60. emily laird says:

    Love it! She is thinking, “Now why are my little birdies so quiet right now? Should I enjoy it or be worried they are up to something?”

  61. nancy says:

    I love the new necklace- so thoughtful but darling too. I think the bird is thinking about “chicks”- teehee.

  62. Tara says:

    I imagine that he or she is thinking about just how small we all are in the universe and how lucky we are to be a part of it.

  63. Lynne S says:

  65. Karen Borges says:

    I think the bird is thinking that he is lonely and he needs to find his flock….

  66. melissa says:

    i love this new design – so beautiful and such a simple yet meaningful message behind it.

    i think the bird is not thinking much of anything, just enjoying the breeze, taking in the view, being a bird in the moment.

  67. i think he is thinking about how nice and quiet it is up there!

  68. Jules says:

  69. Jodi says:

    He’s wondering where to fly to next. :)

  70. Shelya says:

    This is beautiful! Such a creative design. I might need this to remind me day to day that things look so different when you take a step back (or above) a situation.

    If I were that bird, I’d just be observing, not really lost in deep thought about anything. I’m sure from up there, things are much simpler.

  71. Janelle says:

    Oh, how beautiful is that necklace! And what a fabulous giveaway — I’d love to win, thanks for the opportunity!

  78. Darcie says:

    It’s thinking it’s ready for spring!

  79. Jan says:

    I think the birdie is considering singing in harmony with her friends. Harmony is something that all of us need, I think, in many ways. When we are all singing together, we make beautiful music.

  80. Danielle says:

    “It will never cease to amaze me that I am not electrocuted every time I plop down up here.”

  81. Brianne says:

    that bird is thinking that brianne needs that necklace!! i am so love with birds these days and it is as if you read my mind. this one is amazing!!!

  82. That little birdie is thinking about her sweetheart, and loving every minute of the 3 years she’s spent with him. Because, you see, today is their 3 year “anniversary”. And every day, the 2 little birds learn more and more about loving each other…and their lives look pretty wonderful from up there.

  133. rachael says:

    i imagine that the little birdie has just flown away from his nest, heading off for new adventures…and though he is excited about what lies ahead for his future, he is also sad to be leaving his past behind.

    That birdie is thinking how lovely it is to just be alone sometimes…savoring the moment. My word this year is Savor and I would love to have this necklace to remind me everyday to stay in the moment.

  197. Deborah says:

    He’s looking down at all the crazy people in middle TN that worrying about 2 inches of snow when other states measure their snow fall in feet!

    You do beautiful work.

  198. Stacy P. says:

    I think he’s thinking about the beautiful spring, summer, fall, and winter we’re going to have in 2010

  199. Leigh says:

    I think the little birdie is saying, “I Love these cute little aqua stones next to me, they’re so purdy!”

  201. Leigh says:

    I just tweeted……under mylifeblessed.

  202. Leigh says:

    I tweeted and linked back as well as ‘mylifeblessed’

  203. Carrie Hartman says:

    I think he’s thinking of home. And how much further he has to fly to get there.

  204. Beven says:

    As a child, one of my favorite books was called “Are You My Mother?” by P. D. Eastman. It’s about a baby bird who hatches while his mother is off in search of food for him. Not knowing who his mother is, he goes in search of her. I imagine your little bird will find what he’s searching for very soon. Beautiful necklace!!

  205. Heather says:

    He’s thinking as he sings to himself….” oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day”

  206. Briana N. says:

    The little birdie is just resting his wings, waiting for his birdie love to come along.

  207. shana says:

    I think the little birdie is just enjoy the view and the lack of craziness “up there”
    Thanks for the giveaway . . . great new design!
    blessings,
    shana

  208. Julie says:

    The bird is saying…still…let me be still…let me be okay with the quiet in my heart…

  209. Julie B says:

    I think he is enjoying *this moment.* Gorgeous necklace, as always!!!!

  210. Jeannine says:

    I think the Birdie is thinking sometimes it’s just nice to observe from afar…

  211. penny says:

    I think he’s looking for a target. A car parked underneath the wire with its sunroof open, perhaps. :-)

  212. Destiny D says:

    I think he’s wondering why he flew south … it’s cold here too!

    Sweet necklace — a little departure from what you typically do, and I give it a big thumbs up … way up!

  213. molly says:

    the approaching air balloon!

  214. Meggan says:

    The birds are a reminder to me of Matthew 6:26 – Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.

  215. Andrea P says:

    She is thinking how beautiful she looks on that necklace. :)

  216. Raven says:

    I believe the birdie is thinking how she belongs on a girl named after her… :) Just adorable!

  217. Meggan says:

    retweeted – my user name is MeggsIU

  218. Susan says:

    The little bird is thinking life is pretty sweet. Thanks for asking. Great necklace. Hope I win. I agree with the bird.

  219. Susan says:

    Is thinking – where is the warm weather :)

  220. Jennifer says:

    I think she is thinking, “How beautiful my view is of what God has created.”

  221. Kate says:

    I think he’s relaxing just looking around waiting on a friend.

  222. he is just thinking he needs to find the perfect place to perch. Which would be in my jewelry box. and on my neck :)

  223. Heather says:

    love the aqua with this necklace….so pretty!
    i think the bird is thinking how nice the quiet is.

  224. Kristen says:

    Due to a book I recently read with my boys, I think the bird is looking for a “target.”
    Great new piece!

  225. Misty says:

    I think that beautiful bird is dreaming of flying south for the rest of the winter, finding a nice warm beach, sipping a nice tropical beverage, and soaking up some rays!!

    (here in CO it’s -16 degrees!!!)

    LOVELY CREATION!

  226. I think he’s wondering why we humans bustle and worry like we do. He thinks we should just trust in the Lord like he does..

  227. Bailey says:

    Hmm…I would have to say the birdie is taking time to be thankful.

  228. Bailey says:

    I put up the link on facebook!

  229. Rebecca says:

    OH, this little bird dreams already of my neck and can’t wait to meet me :-)

    Thanks for the great give away!

  230. The bird is praising it’s creator for such a lovely day.

  231. Carol A says:

    What a cutie birdie! I think she’s pondering all that the day will bring. That’s what a mommy does.

  232. Jenn P. says:

    What a wonderful necklace! The bird reminds me of the ones from the windex commercial just watching us lowly humans and laughing when we run into glass doors :)

  233. dawn says:

    I think he is thinking how nice it is to have perspective.

  234. Jan says:

    I think the little birdie is thinking how peaceful life is up there. Beautiful necklace Lisa.

  235. Roxy says:

    I love your necklaces and this one is just perfect.

  236. Theresa says:

    I think the bird is looking at Morro Rock and relaxing. :)

  238. Kendra says:

    I imagine that the birdie is taking in the view and enjoying the peace and quiet way up there. I love your site- own 2 pieces, look forward to owning more. :)

  239. cat says:

    That little birdie….he’s thinking, “it’s too cold out…I better find somewhere warm to hang out.” BRRRR!!

  240. Jenifer T. says:

    The necklace is so delicate and sweet. I didn’t read anyone else’s thoughts but my first impression is that the advantage the little bird has high up there on the wire is that he can see past the circumstances around him to what is ahead. And it helps him to press towards the mark. ♥

  241. Charlotte says:

    The bird is singing a song, praising its Creator.

  242. Lindsay Lee says:

    To me, birds represent peace, so I think this necklace is a symbol of peace. What a great gift for this new 2010. Thank you for this giveaway! I want one of your necklaces SO bad! Fingers crossed! Happy New Year!!

  243. Christy says:

    This is so cute! I love the color pop with the aqua. The bird is looking back, but facing forward. Ready to take on a new day with memories of old!

  244. Jenn says:

    Gorgeous necklace! I think that little birdie is thinking about building up his courage to fly again.

  245. Lauren says:

    I think the bird is thinking….”WHY is it so cold????”

  246. Lori Danelle says:

    He’s not thinking about anything. Just relaxing. December was much too crazy and he’s just taking in the quiet!

  247. I’m don’t know what he is thinking but he is definitely not thinking about school, work, or stress. Probably contemplating how amazing it is to just sit in God’s presence.

  248. Southern Gal says:

    I imagine he’s thinking, “What’s the big deal about tweets all of a sudden? Do it all the time.”

  249. Amanda says:

    The little birdie is thinking that he wishes he had a camera because he would like to be able to take his own hot shots!

  250. Laura says:

    i bet the bird is looking for people to drop crumbs on the ground for him!

  251. as always I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!! I think he is singing “rockin robin….tweet.. tweet…tweet… all the little birds on jay bird street” wink!
    BIG HUGS,
    Julie

  252. Lori Danelle says:

    tweeted about the giveaway!

  253. Annie says:

  254. Lori Danelle says:

    now on Facebook. . .

  255. Erin W says:

    Gorgeous piece. Thank you for being so generous with your giveaways. I don’t twitter or use Facebook but I would like to comment.

    That bird is contemplating the new year and all it might hold.

    Thank you again for sharing the beauty

  256. I think the bird is thinking that if it snows it should be easier to see the birdseed that we will put out for him – Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful necklace!

  257. Molly says:

    That little birdie (assuming it’s me) is taking in the quiet. :)
    And wondering why oh why those below rush around so.
    “Be still, and know that I am God…”

  258. Lana Dolezal says:

    So beautiful. Congratulations on another beautiful design.

  259. Molly says:

    OK, I sent folks over from my facebook page. (love the bird, what can I say?)

  260. Katherine says:

    I think it is wondering how much snow we’re going to be getting here in the Midwest!

  261. Katherine says:

    And I just retweeted on twitter!

  262. Amanda says:

    if it’s anything like me, it’s thinking “ooh, shiny!” :)

  263. Jennie says:

    Oh, the birdie is probably thinking about spring. Or maybe I’m thinking so much of spring, I’m projecting my thoughts onto the bird. Great necklace! One of my favorites of yours so far.

  264. Sherry says:

    Beautiful piece!! I think the birdie is just taking a break from its busy day and enjoying a moment of rest, a moment of quiet, a moment to take in the great view it has of our beautiful planet!

  265. shannon stinson says:

    lisa….love this give-away! who wouldn’t? this bird is speaking to me.
    Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is life not more important than food and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life.
    Matthew 6:25-27 New International Version

  266. wanda says:

    The bird is thinking how nice it is to take the time to just sit back and enjoy- and probably how crazy we look, moving around in such a hurry

  267. Amy says:

    He is thinking; “What A Wonderful World….” just like Louis Armstrong sang. I can’t get that song out of my head. And this necklace is just beautiful!

  268. shannon stinson says:

    just another thought….(as i already commented…this was an after thought)
    i think you need to make a “charm” bracelet of all your “bird” charms! i love them all! birds are very sentimental to me…..you make it hard to choose between your necklaces….they speak to me, each one of them with birds! thanks for you work!

  269. Sherri Nordyke says:

    I think he is wondering how long it would take to fly to Hawaii where it is warm.

  270. Julie says:

    That birdie is wondering which bird bath he should head to for his daily bath :)

  271. Abby Young says:

    he is thinking about where he should fly to next!

  272. Jen says:

    Maybe he is thinking, “That car beneath me is much too clean……”
    What a pretty necklace! Everything you make is so wonderful and original.

  273. Lindsay says:

    I think she’s dreaming up her next song… composing in her little head until she can’t keep it in anymore and just has to start singing!

  274. Alyson says:

    He’s wondering when it’s going to turn into spring!
    LOVE the necklace!!

  275. Gina says:

    That little birdie on the wire is thinking…
    All is well! After all, His eye is on the sparrow and I know he watches me!

  276. vicki says:

    Oh my! This necklace screams Lisa Leonard! Every time I see a bird on a wire, I think of you and your photos!! And the xo….always in your emails. So lovely!
    I think the bird is meditating….so hopefully he’s thinking of nothing. ;-)

  277. Rachel says:

    I think the birdie is thinking about how big the world looks from his peaceful little spot high above the noise and commotion.

  278. Eileen says:

    I think the bird is thinking about what new area he should explore next. There are just so many options when you can soar through the skies!

  279. Trina Walker says:

    I think the bird is daydreaming about “do-nothing” days, like I do!

  280. Cheri says:

    Eeeee! I imagine he is thinking about how adorable he is on that necklace!! :)

  281. amy miller says:

    I think that little birdie is sitting up counting my kids just the same way my kids ride in the car trying to count all the birdies. I love this necklace- thanks for the chance to win!

  282. Trina Walker says:

    Ok, I tweeted, retweeted and facebooked about it! ;)

  283. Deb says:

    I think he is wondering why we are all so crazy busy and thinking that he is the wise one! Gorgeous new necklace!

  284. jody says:

    He is thinking that about what his WORD for 2010 should be :)

  285. Robbin says:

    My word this year is not an action word, but has something to do with the birdie. Actually, I chose “Sparrow” because a sparrow reminds me that God is always watching over me…I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free…His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me. A simple reminder that He sees all, knows all, cares about all and is IN all. So your birdie is singing.

  286. Robbin says:

    I tweeted and…

  287. Robbin says:

    …it also posted to my facebook page.

  288. Candace says:

    I think this little birdie is thinking about his love…..don’t crows mate for life? :) Love the new necklace- just beautiful!

  289. Emma Bluemel says:

    Lovely colors and design – LOVE it! <3 The the little bird is thinking that she’s so over winter! Oh, and she is ever so thankful the feeders are always full of yummy seeds!

  290. Jen says:

    the little birdie is definitely thinking how crazy we all must be running around at such a fast pace every day. the birdie should tell us to relax and enjoying the moments we are in.

  291. ts. says:

    that little birdie is thinking…..”enjoy life. each moment is a g i f t .
    {ps. fly me over to that sweet girl (that’s me)….i want to live around her neck}.” xo

  292. beka says:

    hmmm… he looks like he’s wondering where all his friends went! :)

  293. Dasha says:

    The little birdie just have no idea why i think it is so hard and impossible to move to usa from Czech republic and find a job there to. He can just fly there. Oh how happy he is. But maybe he is right, i need to focus on that it is doable and pray for it, cause i know it is Gods way for me to live and work in USA. And he will sure provide.

  294. Meyho Saephan says:

    This bird represents me. Represents my “waiting” period. I’m waiting on God to give me peace and the final, “GO!” Years ago he placed Missions in Thailand on my heart. However, due to circumstances at home I am called to be obedient and take care of my parents to the best of my abilities. So, I wait… wait for the time when I am able to spread my wings and fly. To be able to not only see, but FEEL God’s heart for his people. For my own heart to love and continue to grow for God’s people. So… just as the bird has thought to wait, I will wait. For we know that God’s timing is perfect. =)

  295. kate says:

    hmm, why he’s all alone? and where dinner is?!

  296. odelsa says:

    little birdie is day dreaming of happiness, ideas and getting some inspiration, absorbing the world!
    That’s what I would be thinking about if I were him!

  297. pam says:

    I’m pretty sure he’s thinking he should be resting above the heart of our lovely youngest who just LOVES birds!

  298. pam says:

    I tweeted…which is very appropriate for this birdie giveaway.

  299. pam says:

    Posted your link on Facebook as well

  300. Junglewife says:

    He is thinking about where that girl birdie went off to!

  301. Maureen says:

    he’s probably thinking, “what the heck are all those crazy people doing down there???” :)

  302. Mim Owen says:

    I think he’s thinking about how complicated humans make things, needlessly.

  303. rani says:

    This is just lovely! I think the bird is quite Charming! And he’s thinking….I like this woman who is wearing me…she’s quite charming too!” Than would be me!

  304. rani says:

    And I facebooked ya!

  305. rani says:

    And you’re all linked up!

  306. Jessica says:

    The birdie is thinking about God’s faithfulness and knows that he is not forgotten before God (Luke 12:6).

  307. Dee says:

    he is thinking how lucky he is to be free to fly away at a moments notice. soar above the clouds and take in all the wonder below.

  308. Krista says:

    He’s thinking how grateful he is. That the world is his, he can go anywhere….

  309. Quiltluver-Karen says:

    He’s thinking about his next meal…

  310. Mina says:

    the birdie is thinking about whether the wire makes her bum look big :o ) Happy New Year!!

  311. Allie says:

    I think he’s just taking a deep breath…

  312. Mina says:

    I shared ya on FB!

  313. erin says:

    He’s thinking he sure is glad he’s up there and not down here. What a view and to feel the wind in his feathers, so free! I LOVE turquoise.

  314. Stephanie says:

    He is looking out beyond the foamy waves at the great expanse beyond … wondering what it would be like to take off and fly away into the unknown.

  315. Melanie says:

    Love the necklace and the postcards look sweet too. I think the birdie is feeling gratitude for his perch.

  316. Melody says:

    I think he’s thinking about how crazy those people look on the ground who are always rushing around!

  317. Jenny says:

    I love this necklace! I love to look at your pictures as much as I love to see your jewelry. I invested in a nice camera last year after taking a photography class. My favorite subject is my kids. I get inspiration from you! I love you new design and what it represents. I am reminding myself and my kids to look around and enjoy the moment, don’t look for what is coming next.

  318. heatherly says:

    I think he’s thinking about spring. :)

  319. Man, I can’t even tell you how much I love your beautiful jewelry. I have been dropping hints for a long time for my husband to buy me one but I think I’m just going to have to order one myself or win one! I think the little birdie is thinking about how good the air feels blowing through his little feathers.

  320. Caroline says:

    I think the little bird is gazing at a beautiful girl bird along the wire and wondering what song he can sing to win her affection

  321. Micayla says:

    Wow what a gorgeous necklace, so cute!
    I am hoping that the birdie is thinking for me and will answer my question………..Shall I move to Marseille, France or stay here in the UK?

  322. Jen says:

    From his perch he would be thinking about the splendor of God’s world, vast and beautiful!

  323. Eileen says:

    It’s wondering if anyone would see if he left a little present on the car in the driveway.

  324. Rhea says:

    LOVE IT!!!! I think that the birdie is thinking…when will it be spring. Yes – I live in Canada, so I can’t wait for spring.

  325. Anna says:

    I think the little sweet birdie is thinking about his friends in the flock

  326. faith says:

    I retweeted!

  327. faith says:

    He’s just looking down at us running around like crazy and thiking we should all just slow down!

  328. Serah says:

    That necklace is gorgeous! I think the little birdie is thinking about how she’s going to spend the rest of her day. Maybe reading a good book or doing a little shopping? :) Thanks, Lisa!

  329. Shannon says:

    He represents my father who passed away on Christmas eve after a very long battle with cancer. That night a bird was nesting on my wreath on my door and flew in our house and sat on the top of the Christmas tree like it was watching over us. I think he’s happy and enjoying the view from up there.

  330. Susan C says:

    That little birdie is probably looking down and saying, “What in the world is going on down there?”

  331. Michelle says:

    I think he is thinking about spring and that it is way to cold right now!
    Love the necklace!

  332. Helen says:

    Probably thinking that “birds of a feather flocking together” sounds like a good way to stay warm these days.

  333. Kara says:

    Lovely piece! This little birdie is taking a step back and taking it all in – taking time to reflect is something that I need to be reminded to do!

  334. Sarah says:

    The little birdie….if it was around my neck…would be thinking….

    “brrrrrr…these below zero MN temperatures are frightful! I wish someone in a warmer climate would have won.”

    Too bad Little Birdie….this gal in MN is feeling lucky!

  335. Paige says:

    LOVE the blue stones on this fabulous new creation! Would LOVE to win it and your postcards too. they are great! Just re-tweeted you. Heading over to FB to tell my friends about you!
    What is the bird thinking…? Today he is thinking about staying warm, looking toward the sun, and loving his freedom!

  336. carrie says:

    he or she is probably thinking of where the best sunny spot would be to warm it’s feathers on these cold winter days.

  337. Laura T says:

    He’s imagining a much warmer place with no snow!

  338. Stefany says:

    What a great necklace – and I love all your inspired photography! It makes me want to get back on the horse and start at it again. I think that bird is just sitting. Watching. Watching the stories unfold below him and making up his own stories to fill in the blanks.

  339. Faith says:

    I think that the bird is up there looking down at us in utter disbelief of all the running around we do.
    We’re always in a hurry, trying to accomplish the endless list of chores and errands on top of raising our children and holding a job. The bird is amazed at “what an average day for a human is”.
    Love the necklace, especially the aqua stones.

  340. carrie says:

    and I facebooked! :o )

  341. Sam says:

    That bird is thinking “how nice it is to be alone sometimes”…

  342. Camila Faria says:

    I think that birdie is thinking about a great plan to come inside my kitchen and steal a piece of my recently baked orange glazed cake!

  343. Rebecca says:

    I would imagine that bird is wondering where all the other birds are. When our four year old sees lots of birds on a wire he always says they are at “bird church.” Maybe this bird just got to the service a little early.

  344. Gina says:

    Maybe the bird is resting on her way south. She would love to take shelter on a nearby patio, but the cat sits there patiently, too! I think teh stones look a little like robin’s eggs; maybe she is looking to the future?

  345. Penny Johnson says:

    I think he is wondering why we are all running around, crazy with worry. God has taken care of him and he knows He will take care of us, too.

  346. Bonnie says:

    maybe this bird is practicing being mindful which is what i have vowed to do this year …..

  347. Emily Geyer says:

    I think if he lives in any southern state right now, he’s thinking about snow!!

  348. Shannon says:

    I imagine that the bird is just enjoying his view of God’s creation. I’m sure it is even more wonderful from up there.

  349. Donna says:

    I imagine the birdie is thinking about what a nice giveaway and wishes he/she could sign up for it….heeheehee!

    If the birdie is outside your window looking in, I’m sure the birdie is wishing to come in and share the warmth.

    Happy New Year,
    What a great way to start off the year!

  350. Erika says:

    If the birdie is in Omaha, he’s thinking when is this weather going to stop!!!:)

  351. mel says:

    i think the birdie is thinking he wants to rest around Mel’s neck! :) Thanks for the beautiful giveaway! I really hope I get this one! I think that everytime though…

  352. Michele says:

    Mr.Bird is thinking he is glad he got up early and got a jump on the day!
    Wishing you the best in 2010!!

  353. Maria says:

    I think that little bird is thinking “I bet those people down there wish they would fly and relax up here like I can” which is true.
    :)

    Thank you for this great opportunity!

  354. Cheryl Sims says:

    That little birdy is thinking about spring and wishing it were here!!! Love your designs.
    Cheryl Sims

  355. sarah says:

    Spring! Spring! and no more of this frigid weather!

  356. Ashley says:

    I imagine she is thinking about which way she wants the wind to take him…how she should change her life…which path should she follow, where will God take her when she choices to follow him…oh wait, that might be what I am thinking! Which is why this necklace would be a perfect fit…Love all your work!!

  357. Amy says:

    I think the little birdie is thinking I didn’t fly far enough south! It’s cold down here too!
    I love your designs and I’m so envious of your eye for photography!

  358. gina says:

    that little birdie is thinking – i need some warm sunshine on my little face !!!

  359. Lisa says:

    That little birdie must be wondering… “why all the hustle and bustle down there? I have nothing to worry about, He has everything under control and meets all of my needs”
    Love the colored stone, beautiful.

  360. Emily says:

    I think the little bird is wondering if it’s worth always being the early bird.

  361. MrsBagley says:

    My little birdie is thinking about her new addition on the way!

  362. Hillary says:

    That bird is wishing he would have flown further south for the winter. We’re getting single digit lows down in Mississippi and that NEVER happens!

  363. Elicia says:

    If that little birdie is a mama I’m sure she is thinking about what she should feed her kiddos for dinner, something healthy would be great, but mac and cheese sounds like winner…how much homework will need to get done…will everyone get a bath or shower tonight (including mama?)…will she get the kids in bed by 8:00 so she can have an hour all to herself, maybe even spend a little quiet time with her hubby…and then remember how blessed she is to have such a wonderful life! What a beautiful necklace Lisa!

  364. Terry says:

    I would say SHE is thinking. ” From Up Here, Life Is Grand”

  365. Kristen says:

    he’s probably wondering where his friends are!! I always see birds in flocks, rarely flying solo!

  366. I think the birdie is thinking about singing a song of praise to His beautiful Creator.

  367. Chrysta says:

    This little birdie is thanking God for his wings so he doesn’t have to be down around all the crazy drivers who don’t know how to drive in the snow and are going too fast. :)

  368. Danielle says:

    I think the bird is just taking it all in and hanging. Just what we should try to do every once in a while!

  369. Erica says:

    Lovely!

    If I were that bird, I’d be enjoying the peace and quiet and solitude, and then would probably take a nap.

    (Did I mention that I’m the mother of a VERY ACTIVE 2 year old whose molars are coming in?)

  370. Anna G says:

    I think the bird is contemplating the meaning of life or possibly just his next meal.

  371. leslie says:

    I think that bird is is looking at the sky and loving all of life, whether it’s simple or complicated. That’s what I’d do if I were a bird!

  372. sandy says:

    Definitely just catching her breath and enjoying the scenery before continuing on her journey!

  373. leslie says:

    I posted on facebook :)

  378. Ellen says:

    Ah, this is the life!

  379. Ramona says:

    the little bird is wondering what all the fuss is about down below.

  380. Elizabeth says:

    i wish i had’nt skipped breakfast now where’d that worm go

  381. marla m. says:

    if that little birdie were sitting on a wire here, he’d be wondering… when, oh when will i see the sun again?!

  382. Cindy U. says:

    He’s thinking about how he would love to make his home around MY neck.

  383. Lisa says:

    He’s thinking about his food (says the very pregnant lady!). :)

  384. Martina Lang says:

    I think the little birdie is dreaming about her next big adventure in the sky.

  385. Melissa says:

    Wow! The new necklace is just beautiful! I think he’s dreaming of a snow day. Oh, wait, that’d be me!

  386. Kindra says:

    I think the little birdie is thinking about serenity. Taking a break from all its flying and stopping to watch the wind blow.

  387. Jenny says:

    He’s thinking “what a beautiful day!”

  388. Whitney S. says:

    I love this new necklace and thank you so much for the chance to win! I think that the bird is watching people….he’s probably thinking how crazy we are. We always have something to do and somewhere to go and if you all are like me, we are usually doing these things in a hurry. I bet it looks quite funny to watch! It really is a small reminder to slow down once in a while at least!

  389. Matt says:

    The bird is thinking that my wife would LOVE this necklace!

  390. Whitney S. says:

    I also just shared this giveaway on facebook and my blog!

  393. Kay says:

    It is thinking how cool it would be if a worm appeared. Yep, lunch! Absolutely love the necklace!

  394. Kristine says:

    He’s wondering where to fly off next…

  395. Lisa says:

    Despite all the heartache and grief, if I had to do it over again…I would so that I could experience the joy and love for a second time.

  396. Jenny V says:

    I think he’s thinking how peaceful it is up there and how crazy we all are down here rushing around and not taking time to enjoy the peaceful moments!!! Kind of reminds you to stop and remember what life is really all about!

  397. April says:

    I would imagine he’s thinking about how big the world is and how much he has left to see, after he finds lunch. :)

  398. Tina says:

    I think he’s thinking “I wish it was Spring”!

  399. sheri says:

    hmmmm…i imagine this little birdie to be wondering which blessed, beautiful woman will get to wear me…

  400. Jennifer says:

    Beautiful necklace. I think the bird might be wondering where his/her friends are… in late fall and spring, in an area near us, there are hundreds of birds that land on overhead wires and then swoop around in big groups. It amazes me every time. I’ve even stopped to take pictures of the birds on the wire. Love this.

  401. Heather says:

    Thinking about all the snow that should start to fall at noon here today . . . Can’t wait to be “snowed in” with the kids so we can sled and spend time together!

    Great new piece and btw, I just LOVE my necklace that my hubby ordered from you—Thanks!

  402. Linda Mills says:

    The birdie is wondering when I will find a job as a new nurse. He is looking for a job for me.

  403. Jewls says:

    Darling! I think the birdie is contemplating the meaning of life while dreaming of (gummy) worms for dinner.

  404. Molly says:

    I think the bird is watching his friends arriving for their morning chat on the wire.

  405. Kenna says:

    I think the bird is thinking “Thank goodness I do not live in MN” It is so cold here right now – I am wishing I was someplace warm.

  406. Teresa says:

    That adorable little bird must be thinking “Why didn’t I join all of my friends when they left to fly south for the winter? I’m cold and lonely.”

  407. RebeccaL says:

    I think he is trying to decide what is the best way to fly south. Wish I could join him!

  408. RebeccaL says:

    I also re-tweeted your tweet about the contest. Can’t link to it from work, but my twitter ID is rlmoore1

  409. He’s thinking about how dang freezing it is lately! :) LOVE that bird, and I just saw that book last night- WAY fun ideas for the new camera we got for Christmas!

  410. Erin M. says:

    What a cute necklace! I love the blue stones. I think the bird is just taking in her surroundings– it reminds me of a spring day after the rain– it seems like a fresh start!

    I’m glad you posted that book– I’ve been wanting to improve my photography, I’ll have to check out this one!

  411. Erin B says:

    LOVE this necklace! fun giveaway!

  412. Erin B says:

    I’ve shared this on facebook

  413. eliza says:

    Absolutely gorgeous! Just what i need to remind me to slow down and be present. I think the bird is thinking about . . . which direction is next? Which direction will life take me this year?

  414. Karen D. says:

    He’s thinking of how special he is to have a necklace made of him! So adorable. Love the color!

  415. Erin B says:

    I just retweeted this on twitter too.

  416. Tanya S. says:

    I would imagine the little birdie is just living in the moment and enjoying the view from up there. It keeps things in perspective.

    Great necklace! I love the touches of aqua.

  417. Lennette Daniels says:

    I think the bird is taking a minute to rest and regain his direction before flying off on another adventure.

  418. Christina Cosgrove-Rooks says:

    The little birdy is telling me to be kind to myself and others!

  419. Debbie Johnston says:

    The little bird is thinking that he wants to live around Debbie’s neck! Love it!

  420. evamarie says:

    The little birdie is looking at the great big blue sky and is thinking about flying a loop-dee-loop. Just because he can!!

  421. Kristin says:

    I think he’s thinking he went somewhere warm!

  422. Emily says:

    Oh how beautiful!!!! LOVE the new necklace design. I bet the bird is thinking “ha, all those people rushing around down there-I can just hang out here all day and relax!”

  423. Tobey Heckadon says:

    If he is here in MO he is thinking about finding a place with no snow so he can find some food. I have really been thinking of the birds and all the animals that live outside right now. We have so much snow and seriously negative temps. I just love your creativity.

  424. lace says:

    I think the bird is thinking “be still” for just a moment.

  425. I imagine the birdie is thinking how lucky he is that you created him!!

  426. I think the little birdie is saying, “if only they could see what I see from up here. Then they’d know how beautiful they all really are and how magnificent their world is. And then they would believe.”. Deep thoughts for a little bird but he has a lit of time to think fro
    up there on that wire.

  427. katevet says:

    She is thinking about twitting!

  428. Lisa says:

    The little birdie reminds me of my sweet angel daughter who passed away when she was 13 days old. She flew to heaven and looks down upon us here on Earth. One day, we will meet again. Love, love your jewelry. : )

  429. Michelle says:

    I think he’s seeing all the food we have leftover from Christmas – sweet boxes, Christmas cake, mince pies, sausage rolls, etc and wishes and hopes we’d throw some out for him and his family to eat and enjoy :-)

  430. If the little birdie is in Iowa, she’s not seeing anything beause it is snowing and blowing here so hard you can’t hardly see out my front door.

  431. Liz S says:

    Oh my goodness, Lisa, you have taken your art to a whole new level!! I adore this design. I think the bird just might be contemplating who to drop a surprise on. hmpfh!

  432. Nicole says:

    Just precious!!

  433. Christy says:

    I love this! And the aqua beads add such a lovely touch. I bet that birdie is waiting on his friends so they all could fly south together. It’s a long trip to make all by yourself :)

  434. Katie says:

    I think this bird is resting simply because it’s time to rest….which is something we should all be respectful of regarding ourselves! Sometimes you just need to lay down your head and rest easy before the next task. Love the design!

  435. Maura says:

    I love this necklace! I think the birdie is thinking how amazingly wonderful it is to be a birdie, singing the days away.

  436. Sue says:

    I’m purchasing that book today! Thanks!

  437. Michelle says:

    Just tweeted and facebooked this!
    Love, love, love your stuff! Will be getting hubby’s Feb. b-day gift from you!

  438. Jamie says:

    From the cold, freezing snow in Indy, that birdie has to be thinking, “and why didn’t I just fly south” . But to me it speaks of SIMPLICITY, which happens to be my word this year! Just taking things easy, not stressing, and enjoying life and all it has to offer. As always love the design and thanks for the opportunity to win!

  439. Rebecca says:

    I think the bird is wondering when lunch is. That’s what my youngest is asking, so it seemed appropriate!
    You have beautiful jewelry!

  440. Kristi F says:

    Why the little birdie on the wire is sighing with relief at having escaped the paparazzi since Ms. Leonard made him a celebrity on one of her designer jewelry pieces! He is probably singing a little song of thankfulness up on that wire.

    Darling piece, as always. Such talent.

  441. I think the birdie is thinking “the view from up here is nice :) ” Thanks for the opportunity to win your amazing jewelry!

  442. Stephanie H says:

    I think the birdie is looking up at the One who created him and saying thank you for this calm, quiet rest. :)

  443. Alicia says:

    I think that birdie is thanking God for His provision and for the beauty he sees before him. What a beautiful way to bring a reminder of calm in our own lives.

  444. He’s thinking he can’t wait ’til Spring! =)

  445. Tracy says:

    I imagine the little birdie to be daydreaming the day away…..nothing to do but sit high up on a wire, gazing around at her surroundings.

  446. Tracy says:

    Facebook shared.

  447. Susan Pearson says:

    As a native Californian now living in Northern Virginia, I think this little bird is telling ME to slow down, stop, be in the moment w/ my son (special needs) as I tackle his special diet and therapy here at home……AND to stop complaining about the cold temps (longing for my flip-flop beach climate back home)….HE has us here for a reason in this season! Thanks Lisa. Love your jewelry and blog (met you thru your sister at CCCLH.)

  448. Susan Pearson says:

    Okay, just posted on my Facebook!

  449. Stephanie H says:

    I posted this on facebook, but couldn’t figure out how to link to show that I did due to my privacy settings. Love your jewelry… especially all of the birds!

  450. Ann Coder says:

    “I just love the sun on my cheeks and the wind in my wings”

  451. Paige Turner says:

    I bet that little birdie is enjoying God’s creation and soaking in the view! LOVE this new necklace!

  452. Brandi says:

    i bet that birdy is wondering why he bothered flying south for the winter if it’s this stinkin’ cold in florida!!!

    also tweeted & facebooked :)

  453. Kirsten says:

    I think the bird is thinking about getting reunited with all the bird friends that have already headed south for the winter. Spring must be a good time for bird reunions. Bring it on!!

  454. Tristin Mullenix says:

    He’s thinking about why all the humans down below don’t slow down to enjoy the world around them. clamcpo@wavecable.com

  455. Angyla says:

    If I was that little birdie, I’d be thinking about a nap today!

  456. Una says:

    I think the birds are wondering what the fuzz is all about!

  457. Sarah Mac says:

    I think he is thinking about where to fly to next. He looks like a very forward thinking bird!

  458. Love that little birdie! I think he’s wondering why everyone is in such a mad rush down on the ground. And, also, how great it is to be able to fly!!

  459. Annie says:

    I think the little birdie is thinking “Life is good!” :-)

  460. sarah says:

    He’s wondering where his little chicks are!!

  461. Maybe he’s thinking, I love my creator. (You decide if he means God or you, LL!) I LOVE this piece. It just shot to the top of my LL wish list.

  462. DeAnn says:

    I think the bird is thinking how lucky it is to have such freedom to move from one place to another and what a beautiful view it has from this perch.

  463. Deanna says:

    He’s thinking about what’s going to happen in the next year and wondering if it is going to be as crazy as the last!

  464. “Wonder if I could fly all the way to the moon?”

  465. Alana says:

    I bet the birdie is wondering what all the hustle and bustle is all about… God provides for him, why don’t we stop worrying and allow God to provide fur us too?

  466. DEBIJOT says:

    I’d say, with his bird’s eye view, he is thinking “What’s all the hurry down there?”

  467. Amanda says:

    “I wonder when my family will be joining me on my little wire to share this great view with me”

  468. Little Venice says:

    The birdie is thinking: “Hey! Where’d everyone go? Don’t we usually flock together on wires? Did I get the wrong wire again!?!”

  469. Betty Bake says:

    Little Birdie – oh how i think i may sit in the sun awhile

  470. Brandi says:

    I think the little birdie is sitting there in awe of all the hustle and bustle below him – and thinking how much better it would be if people would remember Luke 12:24, “Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds?”

  471. Lisa,
    I love your necklaces and have so been itching to get another…they always match my mood or something I just through on…they are amazing! I have also really needed a reminder of how things need to be simple!

  472. Andrea says:

    He’s wondering, “are you my mother?”

  473. Amber says:

    He’s wondering how long he can sit on that wire and enjoy his break.

  474. denise says:

    i want to win this giveaway! sign me up.

    just yesterday i was sitting in the a.m. watching as some lit’l birds flew to the edge of our roof, than dove to the ground. they seemed to be playing a game with each other. they were darling, and those moments were peaceful.
    i think they weren’t thinking- were just living, flying, enjoying. the bird on the wire is a reminder to me to stop, not just physically, but everything, take in some rest, and then begin again.

  475. denise says:

    add me again, cause i’m facebooking your give away!

  476. Kristi says:

    I think the bird is enjoying the view!

    “The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply that they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings” -James Matthew Barrie

  477. Ally says:

    The birdie is thinking we all need reminders that He provides for the least of these.

  478. Rebecca says:

    Today, the birdie is thinking “brrrrrrr, it’s cold!”. Thanks for sharing the giveaway!

  479. Ange says:

    My little birdie is realising he just doesn’t need to fly away to be free. He is free because he is a bird. He is free because he knows he can fly. he is free because he doesn’t have to think. He just is!
    And that’s why we always say – Free as a bird!!
    Wonderful give away. I’m going to tweet this …and add your wonderful blog to my blog list. I’m doing a give away of inspirational calligraphy if you have time to drop by (see Dec 31st @Signed by Ange)

  480. shari says:

    snow has been falling half the night and almost all of today, and i imagine the little birdie is thinking, “i should have flown south when i had the chance.” i love the new necklace. so so cute!

  481. Michelle says:

    The birdie (at least at our house) is thinking how much peace our Lord Saviour bestows when we only ask…..

  482. stephanie rutledge says:

  483. Julie says:

  488. Sarah H says:

    Thank you!

  496. Rachel C says:

    That little bird is thinking how much he wants to fly to my house and perch in my jewelry box! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  497. Nanc says:

    Maybe this little bird is not thinking at all. Maybe he just “is”–is one with the earth,the wind, the sky, and his creator. The older I get the more stuff seems to clutter up my mind, and sometimes all I want to do is just turn everything off. Some of my favorite things are to lie on the beach and feel the sun on my skin, or to sit on the porch during a storm and smell the rain, or to catch a snowflake on my tongue and just savor the moment. Oh, to have the freedom of this little bird on a wire to rise above the worries and cares of life and just sit there and “Be” for a while. Hey! I do have that freedom. I can sit on my wire for a while whenever I want !

  498. Linda Z says:

    He is thinking about his next flight and taking a leap of faith.

    Really beautiful necklace. ;)

    She is thinking about finding her true companion.

  503. Greta says:

    i think I may have a new favorite necklace! I love it!

  504. Julie Kanzelmeyer says:

    He’s thinking, wonder what the view is like in Michigan? I can tell him – snow and more snow! But that’s ok cause he’d stay warm around my neck! ;) Beautiful new design, love the color!

  505. Susanne N. says:

    he’s thinking, “when will summer be here?”

  506. Allyson says:

    I don’t think the bird is thinking. I think the bird is “being”.
    Isn’t it lucky?

  507. Arijaan says:

    hum, he’s thinking “boy, this sunshine sure feels good, glad i live in California!” LOVE this!

  508. Allison says:

  530. Hana k. says:

    Probably wondering where his/her mate is and when he/she is coming

  531. Stacy says:

    I think the bird is imagining all of the opportunities in the upcoming year and reminding herself to not be afraid to fly.

  532. NerdMom says:

    I think that bird is thinking we all seem ridiculous rushing around like all the little things we are doing are important. That bird also thinks in run on sentences too;).

  540. Kimberly says:

    What a wonderful giveaway!! Thank you!
    Well, if the little birdier were here in MN today, I would imagine it’d be contemplating a warm place to hide from the cold air and snow! Or even better, where it could find a feathered buddy to snuggle up to!

  541. Lynn in AK says:

    I think he must be a mocking bird saying “Here’s another beautiful Lisa Leonard necklace that you don’t have!” LOL And the photography book looks so fun! And post cards – sweet!!!

  542. lisa says:

  546. Laura {{* *}} says:

    Simply precious little bird~

    I imagine he would be thinking little bird thoughts…

    Free to fly ~ no cage for me!

    My dad’s pet name for me has always been “Little Bird”
    and I have always had an affinity for the little creatures.

    This is my favorite so far, Lisa!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this simple beauty.

  550. Melissa says:

    I bet he’s thinking about the love of his life.

    I absolutely adore your jewelry designs, by the way!

  551. Pam says:

    Thinking about a trip to the warm south! At least any birds here in our 6″ of snow are probably thinking that. Love your designs!

  552. Alana says:

    I think he’s thinking of all the possibilities that are before him…if he’d only leap!

  553. Paula Wise says:

    They look like ants from up here. :D

  554. jules says:

    “I could really go for a big juicy worm right about now.”

  555. beth cochran says:

    that birdie is sitting on the wire looking at Gods creation and adoring the beauty of it, then looking down at all us people and thinking: they are all in such a hurry that they don’t see the beauty of God’s creation because they are too distracted to see it!!

  556. Kimberly Marcus says:

    Beautiful necklace, I think the birdie is calling to his friends to come sit and enjoy the scenery for awhile..

  557. Sarah says:

    The necklace ia adorable… I bet the little bird is thinking about the weather… Who doesn’t like to think about the weather?

  558. DanaMc says:

    The little bird is thinking…
    “You know, it’s only 72 more days till Spring.”

  559. Aubrey says:

    I think that the birdie is thinking how wonderful it is to be on such a beautiful necklace, and how jealous all the other birdies must be.

  560. Abigail Heath says:

    The little bird is thinking about where he will fly to next…With a new decade here, I myself am thinking about where I will fly to next. Maybe we can fly together = ]

  561. Abigail Heath says:

    Just posted on facebook…yay! another entry!

  562. Carolyn says:

    I love birds! Hope I win. it would make my day.

  563. Lisa says:

    The little Birdie is thinking about watching over me today like my Guardian Angel. Making sure I get through the day with my children and my family. Granting me the strength to deal with my fathers Alzheimers, to embrace everyone around me and not to let the “small” things get to me.

    Lisa-Marie

  564. Alex says:

    I think she is thinking about her lovely ‘husband’ bird – some birds mate for life, like swans… and is glad and thankful everyday for the sweet companionship and adventure they share.

  565. Amy says:

    I think he is pondering life, the universe, and everything ;D

  566. megan says:

    megan from LA

  567. megan says:

  568. Sandy says:

    The little bird is thinking “when is she going to get out here and fill that feeder, I’m hungry!”

  569. Halley says:

    That bird on the wire isn’t thinking, he is enjoying the quiet and just being. Love, love, love this beautiful new necklace. Would look great around my neck!

  570. Robin Sarazin says:

    I’m thinking the little bird is a Robin looking, from up high, for it’s namesake,” me”, in the northern most part of Upper Michigan, wanting to go home!!

  571. Margo says:

    She is thinking she would like to move to live near my new cabin when I move in a couple weeks!

  572. Xela Lanier says:

    I think the little birdie is thinking about food, shelter, the necessities of life. The little bird is probably also savoring the sunshine and wondering why we humans are spend so much time caught up in or chasing things that really don’t matter while our children look on wondering why they aren’t important enough for us to be chasing them, playing with them, reading to them, savoring their moments! I’m going to go hug my son right now!

  573. The little birdie is thinking about how glad he is that he’s able to slow down and just watch the world go by.

  574. joni lively says:

    The bird is thinking about flying away into the sun and soaring through the clouds.

  575. Halley says:

    snow on the branches looks like powdered sugar!

    I think that bird is enjoying a minute alone…doesn’t everyone?

  582. ester says:

    so much music, so little time…

    (and the necklace is just lovely!)

  583. Andree says:

    “Now where is that nest…”

  584. Ingrid says:

    I love the new necklace. It makes me think “fresh start, new year”, clean and simple.

  585. Sarah R says:

    our little baby girl, due in 5 weeks, is nicknamed “little bird”, I think this little bird is thinking about what a great family it is going to have. I know her family can’t wait to meet her. :o )

  586. arena blake says:

    i think the bird is wondering where all the “nice” southern weather went. if he migrated to texas to escape the cold, he’s in for a rude awakening! :)

  587. Julie says:

    The little bird is thinking about how many things he can see from high up on the wire!

  588. Amanda S. says:

    I imagine the birdie thinking that life is amazing!

  589. Chrissy says:

    I LOVE!! so sweet. I am not sure about your birdie there but all the birds around here seem to be hanging out & thinking of new ways to harass our dog, Lola ;-) I’m sure it would join in the madness if it were here too…! I’m tracking down that book too, I love all your different pics…

  590. Kelley H says:

    He’s not thinking…he is just BEING. A good reminder for us all at times! Beautiful necklace , blog and photography!

  591. Kelly Bay says:

    …if they could only see what I see….

  592. Brittany says:

    I love it! The birdie would be thinking about how cold it is and how he wants to fly south for the winter!

  593. missy in PA says:

    i think he’s thinking “its cold here. i hope spring soon comes!”

  594. Marilyn says:

    This little birdie was in my house on Monday (by mistake of course) and so I know he is saying he feels much better being out in the great big world instead of the 4 walls of my house.

  595. martha says:

    The bird necklace should fly away to my home!

  596. Suzanne says:

    I do believe that birdie was just on my fence saying, “Dear lady, thank you kindly for the treat of sunflower seeds, the snow is soooo cold”. :-)

  597. malissa says:

    he’s probably wondering why all of us sillies below are rushing around!

  598. Ria Dixon says:

    Well that necklace is just beautiful!
    I was sooooo happy today to receive the two custom necklaces I had ordered for 40th birthday gifts just in time for this weekend!
    Your work is lovely! Have a great day!

  599. Jessica says:

    beautiful, Lisa! I think the birdie is saying “why are they all going so fast??” I feel that way when I am in a plane and you look down at the first site of life, where cars become more than a steady stream of light or dark and you can almost sense the frantic pace, you begin to worry about whether or not YOUR freeway home looks like a parking lot, and you get caught up in it all again. I often wish I could just sit up there, like your little birdie for awhile and wonder what is the rush?

    Facebooking now :)

  600. Jessica says:

    Not sure if you can see this or not, but i posted a link on my FB page to your blog :)

  603. Julie says:

    Little Birdie is thinking….sitting here is bliss.

  604. tess says:

    The little bird is probably thinking that he would like a brand new handmade scarf to keep himself warm through the whole winter, when he outgrows it, he will pass it on to his smaller friend, edmund chickadee

  605. jennifer says:

    I think the bird is breathing in God’s air and waiting to soar away on the next gust.

  606. nfmgirl says:

    I think he’s cursing that there isn’t a single warm spot in the US to head to. “I flew south for the winter to stay warm, and now they’re even talking snow in FL!”

  607. Cindy says:

    I think he’s looking down and saying, “I sure hope Cindy gets to bring me home!” :)

  608. Linda Meziere says:

    The little birdie is just thinking how much he loves the holidays.

  609. Jessica says:

  611. beth says:

    the little birdie is hoping he’s early enough to ‘get the worm’.

  613. Sarah says:

    I facebooked about this!

  614. Kelley says:

    Because you have the little XO circle next to the bird, I think he is wondering where is girlfriend is…waiting for her to join him on the wire :)

    Wow Lisa,your jewelry just keeps getting prettier and prettier by the day. This piece is Gorgeous with a capital G ;)

  616. jamie says:

  618. Jamie says:

    He is thinking that it is too cold here in NY where I am! :)

  619. Tammy Hunt says:

    I think He is thinking how good God is to let him fly free everyday without being in a cage somewhere:)

  620. Tammy Hunt says:

    am facebooking this also for my friends:)

  621. Jenni says:

    When I read this post I closed my eyes and thought, if there was a little bird looking over my life what would he be thinking? It was so encouraging! “what a year. became a mama. hubby finished his phd. new city. new house. exciting careers. what a life!”

  622. Sheri says:

    The little birdie is thinking about how good it is to just sit – be still – on his own little “perch.” :)

  623. Sheri says:

    just status updated about this really cool necklace on Facebook! :)

  624. Ron-Michael says:

    I think he’s thinking…if….only….I…could…turn…my…head…to…the…right…

  625. chris langer says:

    That little birdie is thinking she is going to take her little birdie butt inside, climb into the recliner and enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate in front of the wonderful warming fire. Crazy girl missed the migration. SIgh

  626. Laurie says:

    I think the birdie is thinking about how amazing it is to fly far and free above disease and destruction, anger and hurt, hate and cruelty.

  627. Heather Buzzard says:

    The little birdie on the wire is thinking about what would happen if the power went out and there was an electric shock! Oh dear. Thanks

    Heather

  628. Marissa says:

    I love your jewelry. I think the bird is thinking the grass isn’t greener on the other side, I have it pretty good right where I am. Something it’s taken me a while to realize.

  629. Stephanie says:

    I think the little bird is thinking about the sunshine and how great spring will be when it gets here. Come on warmer weather!

  630. Kimberly says:

    The birdie is thinking about hugs and kisses, of course!

  631. Kristin Guyer says:

    It is showing the world how great God can create an an amazing creature ,and how God loves each and every creature that he has made.

  632. Stephanie says:

    @saltwaterwinds just tweeted about this giveaway.

  633. Heather K. says:

    I’m pretty sure the birdie is wondering why all of the crazy people are sticking their chewed gum on a wall, re: Jan. 7th’s post. Or maybe he is marveling about how good it feels to soar with his wings spread and nothing to get in his way, smooth, calm and peaceful.

  634. Stephanie says:

    ptcbass just posted giveaway to facebook! Yeah!

  635. Amy Miller says:

    I imagine that the little birdie is looking at the trees surrounding him and seeing how they have lifed their “hands” (branches) in worship to the King of the Universe. I imagine that the little birdie can see and hear more than we can and can hear the giant worship chorus going on “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God almighty”.

    I want to be like that little birdie……

  636. the bird is thinking about taking a nap because why not? it’s a nice sunny day and i have all the time in the world.

  637. Lisa says:

    I think the bird is thinking about how thankful he is that he was made with love. And is looking forward to sharing that love to those who will wear and share him.

  638. Lois Goddard says:

    This little birdie is thinking….life IS simple up here, but I sure would love to have a companion sitting here with me.

  639. Pauline says:

    What a sweet little bird! She is thinking of her past and of what lies ahead for her. She is contemplating her new journey and is uncertain, but is ready to fly off the wire!

  640. kathemc says:

    He’s staring off into the distance, wondering whatever happened to that cute little girl bird he went to bird elementary school with, and what she’s doing now with her bird life, and if she ever thinks of him…

  641. Chelsey says:

    I bet the bird is thinking about the berry that she had just eaten and went to sit on the wire to savor the flavor, and watch the sun rise

  642. Christina says:

    I think he/she is daydreaming about finding the perfect mate to share life with!

  643. Ronda Opipery says:

    He might be thinking with all the craziness down there, I am glad I am up here! :)
    How great it must be to fly without a care in the world. Beautiful necklace!

  644. Jessica says:

    I think the bird is thinking about how great the salty sea air feels on his face! :) At least that is what I would be thinking about! :)

  645. Sarah says:

    I think he’s wishing he was looking up at my face!
    …ok, fine maybe not. heehee.
    MAYBE, he’s thinking about how lucky he is going to be to look up at SOMEONE’s beautiful face, wishing he were like us- fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of our Creator.

  646. Jessica says:

    I tweeted about it! @mytwilife http://twitter.com/MyTwilife

  648. Tami says:

    What a gorgeous necklace! I think the birdie is thinking about all the wonderful place she can go and see way up there. Where it is peaceful and more beautiful than one could imagine.

  649. YBeltran says:

    The little bird is thinking about all the joy he doesn’t see in the people he sits above. He wonders how so many can miss out on the color of the sky, the puffiness of the clouds, the smell on the streets, the cacophony/symphony of the horns, cars, and tires on asphalt. He feels sorry for those who do not fly with the wings we’ve been given.

  650. Vicky McAdams says:

    Oh my gosh!! It is a long way down.

  651. Julie says:

    I have no idea what that little birdie might be thinking, but I’m thinking I’d sure love such a sweet and beautiful necklace! Another amazing creation, Lisa!

  652. Ursula Davis says:

    The little birdie is thinking about joining the flock.

  656. Andrea YL says:

    That birdy is thinking, “How lucky am I to have such lovely blue eggs?”

  657. Andrea YL says:

    Facebooked it!
    That birdy is thinking, “Gotta fluff my feathers to keep me warm! Brrrr, weeee!”

  658. Lil D says:

    I think the bird is sitting on our telephone wire outside my window waiting for his turn at our bird feeder since food is often times hard to find this time of year.

  659. Mia says:

    I bet that bird is thinking how happy is being able to be up and away from the hustle and bustle of the life we live down below him.

  660. The bird is contemplating why in the world did Alabama just get intercepted??

  661. Robyn says:

    I think he’s wishing he had another little birdie up there to snuggle with on a cold winter night.

  662. Ingrid says:

    I think the bird is looking in the direction that his birdie mate will be flying in to join him on the line.

  663. Michelle says:

    Beautiful necklace! I think the bird is thinking of the horizon and how far it stretches.

  664. Rachel Smith says:

    The sweet bird is probably thinking about cleaning up his nest … :) Oh wait, that’s just me.

  665. You’ve been Facebooked (Paige Dorroh Anderson – I’m the only one on Facebook, so it should be easy to find!!)

  666. Melisa says:

    I’m sure he’s thinking about the simplicity of peace.

  667. Kimberly Kight says:

  669. sarah says:

    I think he’s simply enjoying his gorgeous aqua “sky”!

  670. Brooke says:

    I think the little birdie is thinking about how thankful he is that he’s not an East coast snowbird, and enjoys sunshine & warm weather ALL the time! :) Beautiful necklace!

  671. Jessica says:

    That bird is thinking it is funny we are all speculating on his thoughts :)
    Gorgeous necklace!

  672. Heather R says:

    I imagine the little bird id thinking about the beautiful sunny day that brought him out to perch up on that wire. He is basking in the sun that is warming his back.

  673. Brooke says:

    I tweeted about your amazing creations! @boffthewall

  682. Jodi says:

    Little bird thinks how lucky he is to have a bird’s eye view. Excellent reminder to keep life simple. Thanks!

  683. Emily Piper says:

    I would bet he is thinking about how lucky he is to be watching all of us scurrying around below him, and counting his blessings he can fly above it all!! XOXO

  684. Marcy says:

    Love the necklace!

  685. girlybird says:

    flying high through sunny days
    flying high through rain seeped clouds
    where will i fly today?
    I know …to happy lands of you and me
    to rainbow fields of blue and green
    My wings will take me far and near
    but you are the one i will hold forever near

    …thought from a birdie

  686. Jen says:

    Wow! What a charming necklace!

    How COLD it is in Kansas….they want to stay in Texas!

  689. Kathleen says:

    “Take a chill pill down there!!!” This is a great necklace and even if I don’t win, I’m so buying it.

  690. Christy Q says:

    It’s thinking about springtime being just around the corner (or at least that’s what I tell myself even though it’s only 2.5 weeks into winter!). :)

  691. Mandy says:

    He is taking a ME day sitting on that wire. Because all of us need one (or five) of those every now and then.

  692. Kathy says:

    I think the little birdie is sitting on the wire talking to God and counting her blessings. She is spending time with her creator and just looking “from up here” at the beautiful world that God created. It’s right before dinner time, and she’s waiting for all her little babies to come home to tell her about their adventures that day. She probably has a nice little dinner ready and can’t wait to reconnect with her family after a long day.

    Gorgeous necklace, Lisa! I’ll bet it looks great with your aqua earrings! Very nice job! :)

  693. Trina Allan says:

    Appreciating his ability and the magic of flight.

  696. Lynn says:

    I think the birdie is thinking about just how nice it is to bask in the sunshine.

  697. Erin Kaylor says:

    Well we live in Kansas and right now the temp is -4….if you can imagine.. cold cold cold..so I think the bird would be thinking of where it would be able to get some warmth! At least thats what i am thinking its miserable out there..sooo cold…but then again so nice to cozy up in the house with the fireplace on and watch my 2 little boys acting crazy because they need to burn off some energy..oh my what I would do with the energy of a 2 and 5 yr old…lol…love love love your stuff! the necklace is so sweet! Hope I win it:)

  698. Erin Kaylor says:

    left message on facebook too:)

  699. Lisa says:

    that little bird is watching us rush around, wondering why we do, and is about to spread her wings a ride the wind to show us how to slow down and play.

  700. Mary Alice says:

    He’s thinking “take each day as it comes.”

    I love all of these giveaways! Thanks for sharing!!

  701. Kathy says:

    I just told all my FB friends about your gorgeous designs and your necklace giveaway and posted a link to your website. I hated to let more people on the chance to win the necklace, but it was the right thing to do. If they don’t already know about you, I know they will love your beautiful jewelry. My DIL loved the necklace I got her for Christmas!

    Now, I think our little birdie is sitting on the wire waiting for the sun to rise. She is chirping a happy little tune…maybe “His Eye is on the Sparrow.” She is happy and content spending some quiet time with the Lord before she starts a new day.

  702. kelly says:

    LOVE the necklace! and would LOVE it have it ;) i imagine the bird is looking around thinking, “does there really NEED to be a starbucks on EVERY corner?”

  703. hil says:

    I think he is thinking about what beautiful green beads those are :)

  706. Janice says:

    Ok, my jr high response is that he’s wondering if he can actually poop on the cars passing by like a kid spitting off the pier…hahaha…sorry, blame it on having 3 brothers!!

  707. She’s thinking about her little chickadee’s growing up too fast! Beautiful necklace!

  710. Kristin says:

    Peace and quiet.

  711. Jenn says:

    If that little bird is from the Midwest, he’s watching all of this crazy snow come down and wondering when it’s going to stop!

  712. Jan Richards says:

    Our youngest grandson is sick today…thinking the little bird is watching over all the kids who
    are ill today and praying for a better tomorrow. Thanks for a chance to win one of your most
    meaningful necklaces yet.

  713. Sherrie says:

    The birdie is thinking about spring!

  714. kristy says:

    i think that birdie is thinking about nothing at all. not. a. single. thing. just relishing in the pure stillness & calmness. ahhh, how lovely would that be?! {as a mom of two young ones, i relish in those quiet moments!}

  715. Christine Dykstra says:

    “Tweet. Life is sweet.”

  716. kristy says:

    just FB’d it! :)

  717. Erin says:

    the beauty of being a bird is that he has no worries, no regrets, no stress. His only thoughts are of the bounty of blessings his heavenly father gives to him each day: the clear blue sky, a wire to rest upon, an early morning worm and the warmth of a nest.

  718. Audrey says:

    The birdie is always thinking of her babe, and soon-to-be babes! They’re not my kiddos, but my nephews sure do have my heart…my little “dukes”: Beau, 1 1/2, and Luke, due Feb 7th!!! My sister absolutely ADORES her petite charm bracelet with their names on it that I gave her for Christmas that you made!! Thank you! Your work is simply amazing :)

  719. kristen says:

    I imagine the birdie is thinking about where in the world he wants to fly today…the possibilities are endless thanks to his God given talent!

  720. Cari Locken says:

    I think that bird is thinking how wonderful it is to spread her wings and just FLY!!!!

  721. Keren7 says:

    I think the bird is wondering about the meaning of life or else appreciating the jewelry makers good taste in placing the birds image on a necklace.

  722. Susan says:

    I think the little bird is wondering when he can fly back north again and come join us up here in beautiful British Columbia… I have a safe spot to keep him, too ;) Thanks for the chance… love the colours.

  723. Melina says:

    Ok, Just want you to know that Lynn posted you on facebook….and I love your work! Just want you to know that I think Lynn should win! I want the book…I love learning about fun shots!

  724. Melina says:

    P.S. Birdie is thinking about the tune he is going to sing in my window this spring!

  725. Peggy says:

    If that bird’s in Chicago, it’s probably wondering why all the wires are so filled with snow that there’s nowhere to land!! Great necklace, Lisa. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  726. Jessica says:

    At this moment? He’s thinking “Man is it cold out here. My little feet are fweeezing.”
    Ok that was incredibly cheesy.

  727. jan says:

    He’s thinking, “Im glad I get to fly above the madness”.

  728. Kris says:

    The bird’s wondering why humans seem to have such a hard time living in peace with each other…we just have to give the same love we want in return.

  729. Rebecca says:

    “What a cozy resting place, here on the bosom of a woman.”

  730. erinV says:

    I think he is wondering why we are all in such a rush all the time…

  731. jen W says:

    He’s thinking….Life is good!

  732. Connie says:

    I think the bird is just enjoying a quiet moment to herself and taking in it’s surroundings

  733. Shanna says:

    Awesome necklace…as always. That bird is thinking how awesome he is for getting to fly above the rest of us and be at peace all the time.

  734. gail says:

    I believe that little birdie is thanking her maker that she is not in Nebraska (wind chill -40 and 20 plus inches of white stuff

    Stop and take time to see the most important things in life -
    Happiness is keepng life simple -It’s marveling at a breathtaking sunrise, it’s watching your child take their first step, it’s a warm hug – “It’s simple- it’s love”

  737. Ron says:

    Don’t you get it? it’s not that complicated! Look around you – see the beauty in the sky, in the trees, the gentle winds that let me soar the flow of a lazy stream. Take a deep breath and look around you and have joy!

  739. Angie C. says:

    Ya know….I was on here earlier and was browsing thorugh the comments and thought to myself….I don’t have anything to say that hasn’t already been said, really….granted I didn’t actually read ALL 700 something comments ; ) But, then….I was in the hustle and bustle of making breakfast for my children and glanced out the kitchen window to see 2 chubbie little birdies….in my backyard. I focused on the one sitting on the wood fence….noticing how warm a full he looked eventhough the windchill was -5 degrees this morning. Then I looked the remnants of snow on the ground and thought ….how can he be so full? Then God whispered in a still small voice….remember my Words???? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Matthew 6:26

    I thought about the bird on your necklace….I bet he’s sotting there thinking the same thing. : )

  740. Genevieve says:

    I think the bird’s interest has been captured by something.

  741. Angie C. says:

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Matthew 6:26

    I thought about the bird on your necklace….I bet he’s sitting there thinking the same thing. : )

  742. SarahBfromMN says:

    I think he’s thinking about how much he can’t wait for SPRING!

  743. Angie C. says:

    Oops…tried to correct typos and it posted twice…sorry :(

  744. Lisa says:

    I think the birdie is waiting for his love to meet him. :)

  745. Rebecca B. says:

    I just found your blog and I LOVE your jewelry! I’m going to start saving my pennies and buy some asap.

    I’m sure the birdie is admiring the view and loving that he can fly.

  746. cheryl says:

    i think the little birdie is thinking about what lies ahead and of all the possibilities.

  747. amy rehnae says:

    she’s probably thinking how nice it is to just be who she is without any concern for what others think of her…even when her feathers get ruffled :~)

  748. Polly says:

    she’s thinking that if she scoots over a little bit, there will be room for that cute little birdie on the next tree over.

  749. ashley ioane says:

    I beleive she is thinking about her loved ones and how she hopes they are doing well. ;) Great design love the necklace!

  750. ashley ioane says:

    just posted to facebook!

  751. Frances says:

    The little birdie is thinking she needs to be around my neck. I sooooooo need her to remind me to stop rushing. Everyday I rush through life and am afraid I am teaching my beautiful twins to be the same way. I need this birdie to help me change in this new year…….for some reason I have not been able to do it on my own.

  752. Ingrid says:

    He’s thinking, “I hope Ingrid gets off the computer & comes outside to refill the birdie feeders!”. We have an amazing assortment of birdies in our yard and refilling the hummingbird nectar and bird seed is a daily to-do around here! :)

  753. Melissa says:

    I am sure I can’t say anything that hasn’t already been said by 777 previous posters :) … but I think the bird is saying ” When will the world be at peace like us birds”?
    Great necklace as always. I have been saving some money to order another necklace(i have one) from you but now this just makes the choice harder! Or maybe just maybe I will get lucky and win one then buy another! :)

  754. robin stedem says:

    he’s just hanging out..on a wire..wonderful giveaway!

  755. caroline says:

    This little birdie isn’t thinking at all – she’s just soaking up the sun and feeling fine!
    I need a new necklace for the new year – I hope I win!!!

  756. Julie says:

    “I wish it were warmer”

  757. Cindy says:

    This little guy is thinking…”life is good”.

  758. Debbie says:

    The little birdie hopes her feet won’t freeze to the wire!

  759. Nancy says:

    This is my favourite necklace design yet! I think the birdie is watching for it’s friends to join it on the line.
    The book looks like a great one and has piqued my curiosity. I love unique photography ideas; it’s a great way to help you see things around you in a different light; to see the potential beauty in the mundane. It gives me a great excuse to play around with my camera and to take even MORE creative pictures.

  760. Melody says:

    Great giveaway! I got that book in my stocking this year from my hubby! I love it! I think that Birdie is thinking “pick me, pick me, please”…just kidding. I think he’s thinking: “the view from up here is incredible!”

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  761. Tara says:

    Oh, and facebookin’!

  762. Lindsay Thornhill says:

    800 comments, wow! Can you possibly read all of these? Haha, well Lisa I love staying updated on your life thru your blog & you really do inspire me to be more creative! The little bird is definitely thinking that she should fly to Dallas & pay me a visit, doesn’t she have relatives in Texas? Hope you guys are doing well & happy new year =) Miss you!

  763. Lindsay Thornhill says:

    And that is a gorgeous picture of you btw!

  764. Joan Tilson says:

    I love this bird on a wire! It is a good reminder for all of us to pull back and look at the bigger picture of what is going on around us. (amazing how the details sometime are clearer and make more sense when you look at the big picture). Nice choice in stones surrounding it … like robin’s eggs!

    Spring is just around the corner

  765. The birdie is thinking about nothing. Good little Zen bird with a still, empty mind :)

    Thanks for the chance!
    Kelly @ TLE

  766. Jen Kulipa says:

    Peace, serenity & joy!

  767. Charly says:

    She is looking forward to the snow melting, sun shining and for her little birdie to be able to be outside in the warmth of spring. Ok…so maybe that is what I am looking forward to! :)

  768. Lynn says:

    Flying far, far away…..

  769. Trinda says:

    Birdie is smiling at the site of looking in my window at my 3 year old Cinderella dancing in her plastic high heels!

  770. Aimee says:

    I am loving birds right now. I think I should have followed my great, great, great, great grandfathers profession as an ornithologist.

  771. Jackie says:

    THAT LITTLE BIRDIE IS SITTING THERE THINKING “I WOULD LOOK GOOD AROUND JACKIE’S NECK, I WANT TO GO LIVE WITH HER” XOXO

  772. Jen says:

    I bet that bird is thinking about eating, and he probably sees a lot that I don’t in this world…the wonders of the natural world, eh?

  773. So cute!! I love it. And how pretty are the postcards?

  774. also, I RT’d your tweet :)

  775. michelle says:

    i love, LOVE your necklaces! i don’t wear much jewellery but i do covet your designs. :-)

  776. Christy says:

    The bird is thinking that he wants to join the lisa leonard necklace that arrived at my house today. He is wanting to come to Indiana so he can see the foot of snow and be reunited with the most beautiful necklace in the world!

  777. arikaj says:

    where i’ve parked my car…

    and i love the photography book! thanks for sharing where you got your fab ideas :)

  778. Erin says:

    if he’s here in StLouis, he’s probably wishing he flew South for the winter! :) Adorable necklace- Thanks for the chance to win!

  779. Patricia says:

    You are the best! :-)

  780. Ruth says:

    “His eye is on the sparrow and I know He’s watching me”

  781. Sophia says:

    It’s so nice being free and independent Why those two feeted who are stuck in earth have so many worries?

  782. Laurette says:

    ” what are the humans doing so much sound? they could have such a beautiful melody..”

    Sorry for my bad english, i’m french! =)
    the necklace is just fantastic, and the idea of the giveaway great! ;)

  783. Carol says:

    No… nobody else has spotted that worm. It’s all mine.

  784. Shannon says:

    I’m thinking if there were any little birdies sitting around here they’d be frozen to the wire wishing they would have gotten the heck out a dodge before it got cold! :) NEGATIVE 26 here tonight! Yikes!

  785. Lynn says:

    I think the little bird is thinking about his next adventure.

  786. I think the birdie is thinking about the beautiful sunshine.

  787. Karen says:

    Such a pretty idea. Thanks for your generosity.

  788. steph says:

    i think he’s thinking that it’s waaaay to cold in Texas right now

  789. April says:

    Why he/she likes to sit on the wire?

  790. Angela P says:

    Definitely not worrying.

  791. Kari says:

    The birdie on the wire is thinking “I would love to adorn the neck of a lovely lady who is celebrating her first year of sobriety.”

  792. Stacie says:

    The little bird is trying to figure out what tune to sing next. I’m thinking a hymn, perhaps “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing”.

  793. Suzi says:

    He is definitely thanking God that he was created to a bird. Thankful he is not one of the crazy, busy, worrying, materialistic creatures he watches from the wire.

  794. Mindy says:

    If he’s any where near the midwest (where we live), he’s thinking how do I get out of here to a warmer place … I guess that’s what I’ve been thinking too the last week. Brrrr….. Maybe Monday it might be in the 30′s a heat wave!

  795. michelle says:

    i think the little birdy is thinking about naptime =)

  796. Jill says:

    Little bird is just enjoying the pause, the deep breathe after a busy day, at peace while beauty and chaos surround. Wait, or is that me?

  797. Holly says:

    He is thinking about how happy he is that he is free and that he can fly

  798. Lindsay says:

    The birdy is thinking about how lucky he is to be outside on such a lovely day!

  799. wendy says:

    oh, dear God, I want that necklace!
    The bird, I imagine, is enjoying a moment of peace, contemplating the beauty around it.

  800. Daphne says:

    He is thinking about how much better this year is going to be

  801. Kristi says:

    I think it is thinking ,where is my mommy:)

  802. Jessica says:

    Beautiful!

  803. Mo says:

    The bird is thinking about one of two things. It is either thinking about te gorgeous view or it is thinking about not falling off the rather high wire.

  804. Heather says:

    Bird on a Wire is the banner on our ph-balanced blog! One of the birds on our blog banner says “Say Something!” I love the simplicity and modern mix of the necklace.

  805. Peg says:

    I am sure he is thanking the dear lord that he is not in Nebraska right now! It is way too cold!

  806. Denise in CT says:

    The little birdie is looking forward to 2010 and all its possibilities.

  807. Cary says:

    My husband owns a hotel in our teeny tiny town and he has a dove that has built a nest under the carport. I often see the dove perching on a power line when I am on my way home from work and she seems to be so satisfied in her little world. I think that the little birdies that perch on the power lines are laughing at us because we have to take cars when we travel and all they have to do is flap their wings and enjoy the view!!!

  808. the little birdie is probably laughing at us humans because we always think that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence… but the birdie can see that it’s all the same :)

  809. AshleyS says:

    If I were wearing this necklace the little birdie would be thinking “why is it so darn cold today and when is this snow going to stop!”.

  810. AshleyS says:

    Shared on Facebook.

  811. Marnie says:

    What a view!

  812. Lori says:

    He is patiently waiting for his lovebird to return.

  813. He’s telling me “it won’t be long till you have your wings, elaine.”

    I’ll take that.

    peace~elaine

  814. Jill says:

    It’s going to be a “tweet” year indeed!

  815. Susan says:

    He’s thinking what am I going to do when those Christmas bills get here!

  816. I think he is wishing for another bird to come alongside of her:)
    Many blessings to you for doing this!

  817. Sheila says:

    Please please please enter me!! I keep hinting to the husband for one of your creations and I now have a wishlist maybe I will have hint harder!! LOL thanks for the loveliness!

  818. Sheila says:

    OOPs was supposed to say what little bird was thinking…think I will head home to my cozy nest and have a little rest…

  819. Jessica J. says:

    That little birdie is thinking about how beautiful the world is!

  820. Gregg says:

    It is thinking about the Beatles song Blackbirds

  821. Jami says:

    I think the little birdie is wondering what all the fuss is about. Why are we always rushing around…busy instead of enjoying the view like he is.

  822. Allie Adams says:

    I think she must be thinking about the little babes back in the nest. Lovely necklace Lisa!

  823. Colleen says:

    I think the birdie is thinking of new adventures for the new year. What a charming necklace!

  824. Kim says:

    I’m thinking that little bird is thinking how lonely she is and who will love her… Hmm…hope it’s me. Thanks for the giveaway. beautiful artwork!

  825. tammy says:

    how lovely! i think she must be looking forward spring and some warm weather! –it is unseasonably cold in nc! perhaps she is planning to build a nest and lovingly care for her egg babies!

  826. Rebecca Walter says:

    Love it!! Love all of your designs!!

  827. Jennifer Berges says:

    God and love is all I need.

  828. Laura says:

    I think the little bird is waiting for his next adventure!

  829. Julie Masse says:

    What a beautifully designed piece – love it!! I think he’s waiting for his lady-friend to join him for a quiet dinner and a fly along the beach! :)

  830. Rica Allen says:

    Come what may… cheers to the new year!… pretty sure that’s what the little birdie must be thinkiing.

  831. Rica Allen says:

    posted on facebook!

  832. Jackie Klayman says:

    I think the bird is thinking about freedom. The freedom to just open your wings and take flight…leaving all cares and worries on the ground.

  833. Shannon says:

    The little bird must be deciding what to do next. Fly around and have some fun or go in search of some food!

  834. Amanda Jean Inez says:

    I think the bird on the wire is enjoying being able to get away from all the hustle and bustle of everything. He’s able to take a moment for himself but because of his high perch, he’s also able to see the bigger picture. I think this is something we should all try to do, take a moment to sit back and relax, get away from it all, and remind yourself that away from the craziness of everyday life, there is more, and it is simple and beautiful.

    This is a beautiful necklace! I find your jewelry so inspiring!

  835. Heidi says:

    That is a beautiful necklace- LOVE the turquoise! That little birdie is waiting for his friend to come back :)

  836. Heidi says:

    sharing this on facebook!

  837. sonia says:

    He’s thinking of life and all its glory!

  838. Beth E. says:

    He’s thinking of his friends…birds of a feather flock together! ;-)

  839. Cricket says:

    Thinking of how sweet spring time will be with little chickies in the nest.

  840. Anna Sander says:

    I imagine that sweet little bird is learning to fly. Maybe she just took her first flight and her heart is hammering in her chest and she is gearing up to try again.

  841. GeNell says:

    He’s thinking I should go live in Georgia!!

  842. rowena says:

    he’s thinking about flying and singing and freedom and joy.

  843. Liz D says:

    I love the color in this one! :) I also love the reminder to slow down and be still. I just had a new baby and I have another at home so I’m reminding myself to slow down and just enjoy the moments instead of trying to be “supermom” and get it all done.

    The birdie probably isn’t thinking about much more than the beautiful breeze through his feathers and the sun on his back.

  844. Lauren says:

    how adorable!!!!! very simple. I love it!

  845. Barbara says:

    The little bird is thinking: “Gosh, I’ve got a stiff neck!” ;-)

  846. sarah says:

    i love your stuff! and i think he is thinking how perfect the world really is…

  847. Andrea says:

    “I love it when the breeze blows and the wire bounces a little bit. That sun feels good.” (And what wonderful thoughts everyone has shared – silly, inspirational, reflective, hopeful, wistful… a lovely read, thank you!)

  848. I imagine that the bird is an observer of the human race. He checks in on us now and again to make sure we continue to be positive and picks us up with his beautiful songs when we get down. Just a thought. I hope I win the necklace so I can wear that positive reminder.

  849. Donna says:

    He’s thinking about the great view he has….love this

  850. simey says:

    He’s thinking about the most direct route to somewhere warm!!!

  851. Lisa Smiley says:

    Lisa, just wondering if you’d share the online service you use for your postcards (if you don’t print them yourself, that is. ) thanks! stay dry!
