Sheron Cardin's Input...: March 2007

I have been an interior designer for over 27 years and I have always taught my clients the principles I used while decorating their home so they may enjoy decorating too. The home staging trend in residential real estate is a great way to reach more people every day and what I enjoy the most is they are learning the basics of good design through staging. It is my dream for every person to know the joy and pride of living in a decorated home.

"To KILL A Mockingbird!"

Do you have mockingbirds? I don't know about anywhere else in the world that has as many as we do in California, but in Central CA we have many, possibly one per household. 

When I lived in Colorado, I had one that had the most beautiful songs and felt blessed that it sang outside my window. Now I am in the country and our mockingbirds have a very limited vocabulary of sparrows and finches and it is driving me nuts. 

A couple of years ago there were two that lived in the tree in the back yard and sang all night. Did you know they sing till 4 a.m.? They do. I swear I wanted to kill that bird and lo and behold it left. It really did...for a whole year. We were kind of freaked out around here thinking I had super powers.

The mockingbird did finally return (maybe not the same one) the next spring with new songs. I was thrilled and sang along listening to all the unknown tunes.

I'm sitting on my patio this morning enjoying the sunshine and yes, you guessed it, THE MOCKINGBIRD with the limited vocabulary has returned.

So with blessings or curses spring has sprung.

Baby mockingbirds... 

Namaste
