"Hummingbirds in my window."

I just received my hummingbird mobile in the mail from Guatemala. Each individual bird was carefully wrapped, with the beaks folded down and the strings tied around cardboard paper so that they did not get tangled in the mail. I love the way it looks hanging in my window. The details are lovely, the colors bright, and the overall look is joyful and full of life. Gracias Jose Arriola!

"Hummingbird Mobile is beautiful"

It is a great colorful addition to my patio where I feed and enjoy the real life jewels. Once it turns cold here in Colorado I?ll move the mobile to my bathroom window where I have several other hummers. Thank you.

I purchased star ornaments for my best friend for Christmas. She, her husband, and each of her children were able to pick a star for their own. They loved it!
