These vibrant, tropical parrots, macaws and toucans
can cheer up even the darkest corner of a room.
The large, green, carved parrot is actually a drink muddler
and the smaller birds are stir sticks and food picks.
But I just use them for display.
I smile when I pass by more bright birdies attached to my refrigerator,
and I am flooded with memories of a far away place, so dear to my heart.
(A few of you already knew that I spent nearly half of my girlhood and teen
years living in South America. Brazil. Where these birds are from.)
