why we love this product...

"when you see these soapstone birds, you can't help but think 'oh my gosh they are so cute!'. and that was exactly my first reaction. these are super fun and you can literally place them anywhere to add a little whimsy. we have them grouped together on a stack of books, but also on top of the moss that's in one of our planters! it's definitely fun to place them in places that are unexpected...and that's what makes us love these little soapstone birds so much!"
