Happy Birthday Little One!!!

My studio muse, feathered friend, songster and clown.......I can't believe a year has passed since I first posted that you came into our home and life, and it has been a blessing!
You know exactly who rules the roost (or studio), love chatting on the phone with whomever I am talking to, you have trained me well and are learning little tricks (like getting OUT) that I wish you wouldn't. But then, I think we share a similar spirit.....freedom, humor, good food, good friends and being a camera ham.
I am so glad you picked US as your flock.
Hope we're worthy. ;-)

Ya know I'm not a fan of birdies, but your birds, especially Sweet Pea is not on the "I hate birds and their crap" list!! LOL "Happy Bird-Day, Sweet Pea!!"

Hanging in there...will email more later.

Loves ya,

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

See? She got to YOU TOO!!!
The Pea appreciates the b-day greetings. ;-D
Have a good one Georgina.

Happy Bird-B-day birdie! Hes so pretty Ann!
I love birds even had a tame swan when i was a kid,parents tho were not thrilled with it as he was very protective of me lol.Sadly enough with 6 cats in the house a bird is not an option at the moment.So for now i will just enjoy pictures of yours.
XOXO Andrea.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Andrea,

*The Pea* is always more than happy to pose (I think the bird has figured that when the door is open for the camera, a little birdie could FLY OUT TOO.....they are so smart...)
Never thought I would be this much of a bird person but heavens, they are a bundle of fun!
Glad you stopped by!


Ima Weed said...

A smooch to Sweet Pea ...Happy Bird Day !

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

I shall officially pass the Birdie-Kiss on to The Pea! (who is quite the little kiss giver...funny bird!)


Robin said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dearest Sweet Pea!!! You are beautiful and show such good taste in choosing your *Parents*..... you couldn't have come to a better home!!!!

Birthday Hugs!


♥ Robin ♥

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

The Pea sends you a special *chortle and PEEP!* in appreciation of your message! Probably because you are named *Robin* goes a long way with fellow feathered friends!
Have a good one my dear!

Anne....ummmm.....SWEET PEA! ;-D

Marilyn said...

Your little Birthday Birdie is a Beauty!!
Happy Birthday Sweet Pea!!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Look at that mischievous sparkle in her eye! Happy *BIRD*day indeed!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Thanks Marilyn!

I think the bird *knows*....LOL!
Seems to be enjoying the extra toy and attention today. (spoiled, spoiled, spoiled!)


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Debra,

I'm telling you, when I had the door open shooting photos, the bird was sitting there sizing up the amount of space around the camera...she got out once and it was NOT fun getting her back in!
But it is a happy BIRD day none the less! ;-)


audrey said...

Oh, Anne, Sweet Pea just keeps getting prettier! Adorable. I can see why she brings you so much joy.
Now exactly what kind of celebration do you have for a bird's birthday?
Give Sweet Pea a peck (kiss) from me.
♥ audrey

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Well, Audrey, we have special flowers from the garden beside her little *house*, and we got a new toy put up by one of the perches...there is a little extra FACE TIME with *mom*, favorite CD playing, and then a honey treat this evening.
Yes, we celebrate everything here!


Cathy Bueti said...

Awwww!! What a cutie!! Happy birthday Sweet Pea!! :)

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Cathy,

Yes, we're all crazy here...LOL!!!
That was one of The Pea's cuter shots! What a little feathered HAM...... ;-)


Jo Murray said...

Sweet Pea is a darling! Happy, happy birthday O bringer of joy.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Thanks Jo!

I think the birthday birdie is enjoy the little treats... *wink*!!!


elle said...

My farmer named his white with some black at the ears Border Collie, Sweet Pea. He refers to her sometimes as The Peeper! lol I do think the name sets the nature. Happy Bird day!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Elle,

Yes, mine get called the little Peep-Meisters, the assortment of nicknames!
But this one picked her name...what a sweet bird!


Karen S said...

Awww -- so cute! Happy birthday from my pack!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Karen,

Little One says *PEEP!!!* (thank you!)
From the Peep-leader...


Caio Fern said...

why do I lose so many of your posts !!!! they are all beautiful.
hey, I used to brred these kind of "periquito" when I was a very small children, they are so funny and friendly.
this one is really really beautiful.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Caio,

I am having the same problem with posts disappearing~~Blogger...BLEAH!
So you raised parakeets? Periquito~~I love that!
This one has it's own little *art gallery* beside her cage.....makes the bird very happy. :-)


studio lolo said...

Sweeeeet Peeeea!!!! happy Bird-day to you!! You are one smart bird to fly into the right home. No one could love you more or treat (tweet) you better.♥

I'm so glad you rule the roost!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Lolo,

Sweet Pea here. (mom's cooking so I slipped out...heehee!)
It's been a good birdie birthday; I got kisses and treats and a new toy, and listened to someone Mom calls Brian Setzer all day. I like him!
I heard your video of Emma with the greeeeeeen beeeeeean, so I'm guessing that's how you're saying my name and I LIKE IT!

Peeps and Clucks,
Sweet Pea

Terra said...

Sweet Pea is a beauty and let me guess that she is the leader of your flock and is training you to do her bidding. LOL

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Oh yes Terra,

She had me trained within a WEEK here.
The boys still do their own thing, but this one, she can manipulate me pretty good! ;-D


Jan said...

I'm so glad you got her because I know how much enjoyment you get from her and the boys. Happy Birday, little sweet one!

Robbie said...

How lucky you both have been this past year having each other in your worlds!! Here's to many, many more together!

Lori ann said...

oh this is the sweetest post!! happy birthday little s.p. i hope you get lots of yummy (bird seed) cake!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Jan,

Yep, the birds are the ones in charge here, spoiled rotten and they know it, although The Pea is a little more quite about it. (the boys, however, let me know *I* am there to serve them...LOL!!!)
We are a happy bunch!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Robbie,

I think I am the luckiest of the two of us, though every once in a while, The Pea gets this look of complete contentment.....I know she's happy!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Lori,

Yes, S.P. got a biiiiiiig stick of orange seed treat, and finally began to nibble at it late last evening. (she really is not a *treat* bird---likes her regular seed)
But she did figure out early in the day how to fly around fast and knock the flower out of the vase *outside* her house.....what a bird....


yoborobo said...

Happy Belated Birthday, Sweet Pea! You are so pretty, and I know you keep Anne nice and busy. :) I hope you got lots of treats yesterday! xox Pam

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Pam,

It's me, Sweet Pea. Mom is busy so I am looking at my picture here and think it's pretty good!
Thank you~~I had a nice day with a great big orange treat and lots of love and good music!
I couldn't slip past mom though....I need to learn to distract her so I can see the rest of the studio!

Sweet Pea

(Queenmothermamaw) Peggy said...

She is quite the Queen Bird. Happy belated bird day. Well everyday is Birdday for her. She is beautiful. Had one when I was a teen, in fact had two.

kj said...

does she kiss you anne? how many times? does she sit on your shoulder?

sweet pes is strikingly beautiful and from the looks and sounds of it she has become a BFF. you deserve each other!!

i had a parakeet who looked like sweet pea, anne. her name was crystal starlight (chris) and she made it easy peasy for me to understand all your love on sweetpea's first birthday.


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Peggy,

We decided we should just *celebrate* all week, since she seems to make every day a celebration! What a bird... :-)


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Karen,

Noooooo....she doesn't sit on my shoulder! (if she gets out, she is OFF!) I open the front of the cage and stick my head in; she'll groom me and then birdie kisses on the nose...I'm sure she thinks I have a BIG BEAK...well, I do.....
Her personality is so different from the boys~~night and day.


Susie Jefferson said...

Oh, sweeeet! I'm sending over a virtual cuttlefish and some sunflower seeds. Fabulous... (and I'm acutally able to post comments again, yaay).

Dosfishes at Sparkle Days Studios said...

Cutie and I bet she does rule with an iron hand and lead you around gently by the nose. My crew sure does. It's wonderful to have a buddy in the studio to share your innermost with and they don't think your crazy at all, at least they don't tell you. LOL xox Corrine

Magpie's Mumblings said...

I would love a bird for a studio pal, but will have to content myself with two cats. Happy belated Bird-day to Sweet Pea (whose name definitely suits!)

Talk to me Dahling!
I'm waiting, breathless...... ;-D
