Hi everyone, welcome to Rednesday! February (school) vacation week - yahoo! I can sleep late all week, except for today - Jade is here to play with my niece down the street. She wanted to make a craft this morning and came up with this fantastic idea. She took a 3-oz. paper bathroom cup, cut it in half and colored the outside brown with a permanent marker. Then she decorated four "puff balls", as she calls them, with googly eyes and yellow paper beaks. Voila - baby birds in a nest! How cute is that? (Notice I put a red border around the pic to qualify using it today!)
This is the February Tag-Along I made a few weeks ago, but kept forgetting to post. It represents Presidents Day, Valentine's Day and the month I start sowing seeds indoors!
A Red-bellied Woodpecker that's been in my yard this month. My Audubon bird book says they only go as far north as Connecticut, but maybe they've expanded their range.
I found this "S" at the thrift shop recently, along with the glitzy earrings. The "S" now resides happily in my yellow-painted "play room"!
As I was coming down the stairs the other day I noticed the coat rack had all red on it, so I snapped a pic!
