I am now a follower and so hope I win the bird. However, the blog goodness is prize enough.xoxo

TWAH seems like a fun blog, and this is a great giveaway!

Love them! Happy fourth! xoxo

I love cockatiels both living and decorative ones. Thanks for the giveaway.

I think those lamps would look fab in my house! Come and check my dining room progress I need your thoughts...Pretty please with a cherry on top!


This is great fun -- love the bird. Good luck to everyone. Thanks Eddie and the Well Appointed House for this giveaway opportunity. Have a great weekend all -- Happy 4th of July!

The lamps you made are just gorgeous! I love cockatoos, and I have some in my collection of California Pottery birds. They are so colorful and beautiful - but those white ones are truly stunning!

I was a parakeet girl, myself, growing up, but I think these little guys are gorgeous! And I love how you thought outside the box and turned them into lamps ~ really really a creative idea. What fun to find The Well Appointed House, as well! Crossing my fingers.......Thanks for sharing!

What about that cute 4th of July dog sitting in front of the ice cream soda? Is he coming back this year?

OK, here's what I really admire -- I might see the cockatoos and think, "How amazing these would look as lamps!", but you see them, get them and make it happen in such a way that is beyond the original vision - stunning!

OK, so I realize that after 65 comments on this subject, you probably don't need an other one; you already know how fab those lamps are, right?!!

We are excited to be partnering with you on this giveaway and we here at The Well Appointed House love your blog! I love seeing birds in decorating and my last dining room had hand painted Gracie wallpaper filled with beautiful birds. Cockatoos are one of my favorites and I love what you did with the lamp. You have such a creative spirit when it comes to design!

Just signed onto The Well Appointed House blog -- very nice!
I have a cockatoo named Conrad...as in Conrad Birdie...get it?!

Love the cockatoo and am already a reader of the Well Appointed House blog. Thanks!

what was your reasoning for bad mouthing martha? she made you.

I'm a happy follower of their blog!

Such a clever post. And lovely finds. Of course!

I used to have an Umbrella Cockatoo in college. He did back talk and he DID bite when he felt neglected. Now I just have a dog with a cockatoo hair cut.

Mmm, I'm imagining having an afternoon salsa buffet party with this fellow as the centerpiece. He would be so cute sitting next to a big bowl of mango salsa!

Oh, baby....I WANT the bird! Seriously....the white would pop against my robins' egg blue bookshelves in my bedroom. Hope he flies home with me!!! xoxo, Elizabeth

well, no, i'm an old brooklyn boy stewing in the gulf coast sun at bradenton, but i've been fond of cockatoos for a long time, and i'd love to adopt this one for my (not so) well appointed house. his name is 'vuvuzela'. love you guys, and especially the gold foil shade you chose to give polly a glow. m

The lamps are wonderful! The black shade really sets it off.

I'm following the Well Appointed House blog. Happy to have found your site too!

Love the bird lamp with the black shade!

So fab! But please tell me you also picked up those amazing gold embellished glasses on the right of the photo? xoxo, P

Already a follower, I would love to turn this into a lamp!

I love those cockatoos! And your blog!! And the Well Appointed House!!! Growing up, my mom loved birds, and we had several as pets- three cockatiels, a lovebird and two finches over the course of 22 years. I would love to add these two lovelies to my ever-evolving house. This pair would always have a place though...

Thanks for introducing me to The Well Appointed House.

Eddie, love the giveaway, but also appreciate all the inspiration I've gotten from your blog. Thanks!:-)

Oh yes, I'm a follower of The Well Appointed House Blog - and yours too!

Love the cute lil' cockatoo! Pick me!

Okay, please explain this: "I had the cockatoos set on chinoiserie bases...". WHO did this part??? Shandell's?
Anyway, the lamp you show looks fabulous, but would love more details.
Many thanks for your inspiring and always cheerful blog.

The lamps are fabulous!! I now follow Well Appointed House

Love this and I love the well appointed house. I have now added you to my google reader -- don't know why you weren't there before!

Love the lamps that you made and that you preserved the figurines in the process!

Following! :)

I am now following, although I am not entirely sure what that means. I am entirely sure I love the cockatoo, though! Thanks for the giveaway!

Eddie -
Love this little cockatoo. Yes, if I won it, I'd definitely make it into a lamp. I think it would go nicely with the 1930's vibe of my home. I've been reading your blog since it's inception but have never left a comment. Today I thought I might as well and tell you although very late how much I enjoyed your Halloween special on HGTV last year. It was the only good Halloween thing on last year. I hope you have something planned for this year. Come July, I always start thinking about Halloween.

Please check out my blog...
