Bridget Farmer - Lapel Pin - Bird Noticer
Bridget has been calling myself a bird noticer for quite some time now. At markets people would see her work and ask her if she was a bird watcher and she felt I couldn't quite claim that title because, due to young kids, she never had the time to be able to 'watch' birds. Instead, she would always NOTICE them wherever she went. She'd drift off mid sentence while in conversation with someone because there was movement in the tree behind, or the dog would get very impatient with his stop/start walks. Bridget is sure these kinds of stories resonate with many of you, so she has created this pin for all fellow bird noticers.
The pin depicts a yellow-rumped thornbill. A gorgeous little bird that she often gets distracted by outside her own house!
The design is based on a 1949 Gould League badge Bridget found in an op shop when she first arrived in Australia back in 2006.
Measures 3.5cm wide and 2cm tall.
