Just put a bird on it

So if you haven't seen Portlandia's video "Put a bird on it" check it out.

Here are a few awesome things that have a bird or birds, on it that I have seen around internet lately...

Really, bird printed lint roller? yep at H&M

I don't hate this trend when it comes in the form of bird hanger. Maybe I can go without the lint roller though. 

Check out my Put a bird on it Pinterest board for more birds.

Any crazy bird items out there? Please share.

Free Movie Collection List Download

Oh, I forgot I had this, is something I might have said on more occasions than I'd like to admit. 

A.A.Milne , author of the book,Winnie-the-Pooh, described this state of chaos best:
"One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries."
When I was a kid, I loved to play the 1984 Winnie-the-Pooh computer game on our old Commodore 64, where the blusterous wind scattered all of character's belongings. The object of the game was to return the items to their rightful owners. 

After a few hurricanes and much of my own forgtfulness I have lost and misplaced many things over the years. 
As funny as it is to make discoveries of things we thought were lost for good, wouldn't you rather know where all of your favorite things are instead? In our house we really like movies. Even though NetFlix has quite a few titles that are well organized and totally accesible, there are still quite a few we movies we own that are not offered there. So when I read, Stepehen Covey's quote,"Once you have a clear picture of your priorities- that is values, goals, and high leverage activities- organize around them" - I decided to make a few checklists. The Movie Collection List is one that I thought others could benefit from. I kept the design plain so it won't use up all your ink printing it from home.

Scanning a list  of movies instead of cricking our necks to read the titles is going to be much easier. Please feel free to download it below and keep the blusterous whirlwind of life to a minium.
Is there anything I should add to the columns? Any other list requests?
I'll be sharing a few more lists so check back soon.
