Photo 365 - Day 141 (Pin Bird)

Day 141 (November 20th, 2010)
Title: Pin Bird

Ah, yet another strange ornament to show off!  Today's ornament is just odd.  Its a very old (at least 20 years, perhaps even older!), hand-made bird.  Its made from little glass beads and sewing pins (I believe they are stuck into a pin-cushion of some sort).  It has no feet, so I'm guessing is supposed to be some sort of hummingbird (yes, I know hummingbirds have feet, but they are usually portrayed without them).  Course, it also has no wings, so I'm not sure what's really going on.  Either way, its my oldest and yet most loved ornament.
