Redecorating - It's a Bird, it's a Plane, it's a Teapot?

I found an adornment for my mantle that I found to be rather eclectic, whimsical and the perfect coloration.  It was on the mantle when the hubby got home.  He, however, was not impressed.  He says it looks like a teapot.  So, I need an opinion....  Tre Chic or Teapot?

First, his initial view:

From this vantage point, the object on the right may or may not be a bird.  I can see this.  In fact, to me it looks a little like a cookie jar. 

Moving in for a closer look...

Sure, it's obese - but, cute, right?  And not a teapot. 

Finally, up close and personal...

The colors are perfect; don't you think?  It's a proud, statuesque (ok, fat), lovely bird...

So, I think I'm keeping it.  What do you all think?  Can it stay?  Does it remind you of a teapot?


  1. It's adorable!! I admit it does look a bit like a teapot from a distance. Up close, though, it looks so cute! If your hubby kicks the fat little birdie out, I'll give you my mailing address and will take good care of the little birdie for ya. :D

  2. Ummmm. I don't think it fits with your contemporary theme.... might fit better with your porch/deck decor

  3. @Julie - well, the heart design is more reminiscient of folk art, but... He's so cute... hmmm...
