I just realised I never mentioned this nice pigeon sketch I received in the post from Mr R. Phoenix.
Very nice treat.

Today I saw this news article about a pigeon being caught smuggling drugs into a Colombian prison.
Then I found out that Lauren Gentry had created an illustration to accompany the story.

Ulica Gołębia (pigeon street)

Many thanks to Rosie Slade for sending me this photo from her trip to Poland. Such a cute one!
I'm starting to build a collection now.

At the weekend I met someone with a pigeon tattoo.
Good choice.

I was the only one in the office today. Until I spied this little one who had come to keep me company. It looks like pigeons could be handy to have in the workplace too.

Oh, how I'd love to received such a card!

perching pigeon party

This pigeon making party in London looked like a gem. I really wish I'd been able to make it!
Anna over at mochimochiland is offering the pigeon knitting pattern for free over on her blog too.
I'm definitely going to make a couple!

pigeon post (part 2)

A nice card I received in the post from Lucy.

Although of course I don't consider pigeons to be vermin.
