Snow bird

This ornament took my breath away when I first saw it and it still does when I unpack it each year from its original blue box and crisp tissue paper.
It’s silver and white, like a wintry sky in Montreal, where I found it at one of my favorite Christmas shops (Noël Eternel) in one of my favorite neighborhoods (Vieux Montréal) in one of my favorite cities.
