Last week we happened upon a beautiful collection of vintage bird illustrations online and thought how pretty they would be for a spot in one of the rooms in our townhouse. It was in need of a bit of a spring makeover and sometimes just a new pillow, rug or art print can freshen up a corner in a jif! The birds in the morning around here at this time of year is such a welcome change from winter and we thought these circa 1891 illustrations from The Complete Morris' British Birds Collection would make the perfect affordable spring makeover! We pulled them into photoshop, added our own font and created pdf files for free printables for you to download too! There are six prints in all to choose from and they all print out at 8.5 x 11 and fit into these affordable frames we picked up at IKEA for about $2 each. Hope you like them!
