Beautiful Birds

We have always enjoyed feeding and watching our native birds around our bird feeders so I thought I'd share some with you. Be sure to look at the last one! He's a real treasure!
Chick-a-Dee  My personal favorite!

Winter goldfinches
Summer Goldfinches

Winter blue jay

common barn sparrow

Typical Canadian geese

Sandhill cranes

more Sandhill cranes

Cooper's Hawk


White Crowned Sparrow

Male Cardinal. We have a pair that stays near us year-round.

female cardinal

Our Lovely chickens!!! These gals count too!

Northern Flicker

Snowy Owl
Here is the grand finale!!! My mom was driving home from WalMart and spotted this guy in the grass next to the road. He flew off (as you can see in the next picture) so he wasn't hurt, just hunting. She came back and got us and my sister got some great pictures. This is a Snowy Owl and just looking at him is quite magnificent!!! God's design is so beautiful!
He was pretty big too! With a wingspan of 4-5 feet!
Just a little something for your day! I'll be posting about the hankie soon! It's going splendid!

Luke 1:30-33
"Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

A Hankie for a friend....

The Hankie, the color, and the pattern! So excited!!
"Something old, something new, Something borrowed, 
Something BLUE." 

Yes, that is the theme for this hankie. I am so honored and excited to be tatting a blue hankie edging for a lovely gal at school whose daughter is getting married!!! She's picked out the pattern (which just happens to be called 'Bride's Maids!!!) by Mary Konior and I suggested the Lizbeth 'Wedgewood Lt.' for a color. What do ya think? Has anyone worked with that specific color? I'm super excited about it and will get the final OK from her on Wednesday and then I'll be working on it during my month-long winter break. That's another reason to celebrate, but I'll hold off on a post for that one! A whole month off of school deserves a post all it's own! Toodles for now!

 I've almost finished the hexagon doily that I started over Thanksgiving break. I used a 20 Flora thread in a variegated white and light green so it wasn't all one color. I really love this color! My mom and sister where in Florida this week for my sister's farrier class so it was just dad and I on the farm. Be sure to check out our farm blog, where my mom posted all about their trip! Here's the LINK for you! We had a great time (and all the animals stayed healthy) with lots of movies and good food. I had time to work on it, especially during the intense parts of the movies I was tatting at light-speed!! Hope you are all having a lovely end of the week!

Here are some of our Thanksgiving Day moments I thought I'd share with you all : )

 Lea and Diesel take a walk!                                                            Scout the wonder-pony!

 Our Eddie-boy was feelin' spunky!!

 Decorations by Lea

A Tatted ornament

Looking into our lovely kitchen!

 The Table Setting

My Mom and Sister are going on a trip to Florida so we put up the Christmas decorations a week early this year : )

We always use my Great Aunt's silver for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners

 This is the penny that is kept in the silver box. My great Aunt bought the silver at Marshall Fields in 1944. She was notorious for putting little trinkets away that meant something special. What a cool thought!
Thanksgiving Blessings to you all! December is right around the corner!
