This ones for you Bonnie. Bonnie bought this print but she did not like it in her home. I was happy to buy it from her as it matches my comforter. And my house dress....LOL

I have enjoyed watching the birds come to the feeders here at the new house.
Here are just a few that I have been able to get pictures of.
Here birdie birdie.
I love the cardinal and daffodils.
There have been other visitors also...Chipping sprarrows, White Capped sparrow, Mourning Doves, Blue Jays, Red Wing Black birds, starlings, cow birds, Junkos, Robins and another brown bird that was just a kicking up the mulch trying to find something to eat. I am sure there are different brown birds but I have not been able to identify yet.

For the last few years my birthday has seemed to stretch. I have so many friends that it just happens that way to fit in all the lunches. This year though I was thrown a surprise dinner at a favorite chinese restaurant. My daughter Caitie and a couple of my friends really made my 50th memorable.
My daughter Caitie. I love you with all my heart and wish you the best life.
Caitie is very talented in the creative art side. She has amazing talent and a crazy creative mind. I love looking at her doodles and sketches and everything she does. It blows me away. I have posted a painting she did for me in a earlier post if you would like to see it.
Bonnie was the mastermind behind the best gift for me.
I love you Bonnie and Thank you for your guidence in my personal life and my paper crafting life. These last few years you have helped me in so many ways.
I thank you for everything you have done.
