An ode to a bluebird

Sometimes the simplest little things in life are the best. I’ve collected some fun facts about bluebirds here to make you happy:

In symbolism – the bluebird is the universally acknowledged sign of happiness, prosperity, good health, and arrival of Spring. The beautiful blue of its plumage is associated with the sky and eternal happiness.

Myth 1 – the Bluebird is a “man of laughter” and symbolizes happy love. I always knew they were good luck, but didn’t really know why. 

Myth 2: the Bluebird flutters around humans and reports back to the gods. It very well could be that the phrase “a little bird told me,” spawned from it.

So with all these lovely facts I hope my bluebirds keep bringing luck and happiness, where they are topping your wedding cake or just sitting quietly by on a shelf.
