Phrase exclaimed when placing an image of an avian creature on any item, especially one that was "handcrafted" or "thrifted" so as to make it totally adorable and artistic. It's, like, soooooooo cute! Whether it's a necklace or a t-shirt or an iPad cover or a corset, it could probably use a bird on it.

From the IFC show Portlandia.

Hipster 1: You should sell it on Etsy!
