Orange Birdie......Its *Tweet*
« on: September 20, 2011, 09:12:13 PM »
 :hi: and  :grrr:

I am sure I had posted before a Leo Ward Blue Bird (of Happiness) -- but I can not even find my own Post.  I am Sure I posted it....and can't find it so  :grrr:

Anyways, I am thinking this is the same ?? but he is orange.  The name on the bottom doesn't look like Leo Ward, but rather W. Ward 1997.  That is why I was trying to find my other post too.  Pretty sure it the same bird, and possibly the same person....but crapppy writing for the first name.

It also has a sticker on it that says:

Golden Canary
Titan Art Glass
4651 Mt. Comport
Fayetteville, AR 72701

If you want that Sticker ????? in the Label Gallery, please add it -- IF it is Needed at all ??

So is this the same person as the Blue bird?  But that is a Blue Bird of Happiness, this says it is a Golden Canary (also one of happiness) .....or not.  About 3 inches tall, and 3.5 inches long.

For the helll of it, I tried the UV light on it -- Glows *Orange*
and it looks pretty

Thanks, for any info...and input ..

He's a little cutie Rose  :thup:
I think it glows orange under a U.V. light because it contains selenium.  :ooh: Hopefully some one will elaborate.

Hi Rose,  I think W Ward was William Ward, same family, and is this the link you were looking for?
