I had put up a little wreath next to our front door. I just knew it was too small for the birds to build a nest. Was I ever wrong. It has a little bird house on it and they just built their nest on top of the bird house. Now mind you we have a bird house hanging ready for occupancy but no, they preferred the wreath. So I stood on a stool that was really not high enough and took pictures. Every time I open the front door they fly off and it startles me. I know it is going to happen but I jump anyway.

I received a LK Fat Snowman from Brenda in the mail today. He is darling and I love him. She sent extras and I love those also. I can always use note cards, post its, and list pads. The pad will go perfectly with my refrigerator which is black and stainless. I'm on my way to the post office and walking with my friend. Here is a pic and enjoy your day. The sun is shining and the birds are singing and the pups have been out and done their duty and are napping for the morning. What more could you want? :)

I finished my Prairie Schooler Santa for an exchange and I will be able to mail it tomorrow. I loved making it. It is the 1996 Santa and I used the suggested DMC colors for it. I stitched it on 28 ct opalescent linen, so it has a little sparkle to it. I used ribbon with wire for the hanger and it is anchored to the ornament with antique white buttons from my grandmother's stash. I finished the ornament by hand stitching and putting red and white beads at the top and bottom. I am enclosing a little extra gift for my partner. It is a hand turned needle threader made by my sweet DH.
