branch out

December 19, 2011

In the 2008, longtime court reporter Robin Ferrill went out on a limb to start Songbird & Twig.

Housed in the basement of her Smyrna home, her one-woman company makes limited-edition porcelain ornaments of historic buildings, especially churches.

Ferrill’s best-selling ornament is of the Log Cabin Community Church in Smyrna (at right). It was also her first. With its signature red door, the church is special to Ferrill since it sponsored her son’s Boy Scout troop.

Other popular ornaments include Cathedral of Christ The King and Peachtree Road United Methodist Church — all in Atlanta.

The handmade ornaments make a memorable baptism, wedding or special gift to anyone with a deep connection to a church.

This year Ferrill was excited to create her first non-church ornament: Atlanta’s Pace Academy’s “Castle.”

The ornaments (most are $32 each) are numbered on the back, on the tag and on the storage bag (pictured below), stamped with Ferrill’s sweet logo.

Find ornaments at Erika Reade, 3732 Roswell Road, Atlanta, and at Ferrill’s website, www.songbirdandtwig.com. Contact her about a historical church, school or building in your community.
