When I was coming up with a name for my business it was either going to be Rabbit Hill or Robin Hill Primitives. I choose Rabbit Hill because we already had a place in our area called Robin Hill Park.
One of my favorite stories about birds was in Southern Living Magazine last year. It is about Wing Haven Garden & Bird Sanctuary, which is a beautiful garden designed specifically for the birds in the heart of Charlotte, North Carolina.
It is the former home of Elizabeth and Eddie Clarkson. It started after Elizabeth contracted a mysterious illness in the 1930s and was recommend extended bed rest. She became enchanted with all of the birds she could see from either her bedroom window or a cot in the garden. She started to look at things from the birds’ point of view, adding numerous feeders, birdbaths, and food producing plants. It's an inspiring sweet story that's left a legacy there in Charlotte.

I'm working on a new little project with these little winged fellows in mind. Hopefully it will be done in time for the Primitive Gatherings update on the 15th. Stay tuned. :)
p.s. My heart loves these little ones also....someday I'll tell you about Laverne and Shirley :)
