Roses and birdies up in a tree….K.I.S.S.I.N.G.

                                          You probably know this about me by now …
                                     that I love anything to do with birds.

                                      Does that make me a bird brain?
                                            For those of you who know me......refrain from answering that!

                                    I knew when I saw this cute little necklace on my friend
                                Suzan’s new blog A Mare of a Different Color that I had to email her right away
                             that I wanted it.





                                 and maybe another:)
                           The price was right!
                                        Sweet girl that she is threw in 6 of her
                             beautiful felted roses into the box. These have been a big hit since she’s
                              listing them to her blog. Good thing she works fast.
                                Who doesn’t like roses?……and these won’t die after a few days.
                             or need watering…..or feeding.

                                                   close 3
                               They are so soft and wooly and oh so enjoyable to touch.
                                                close 2

                                                 Receiving 2 dozen real roses wouldn’t have been as special as these and
                                    for some reason I can’t stop staring at them.
                                   Did you give them magical powers Z???
                                                      close up

                                                  on tree

                                     A few weeks back Suzan teased that she was thinking of gluing her flowers to the bare trees outside.


                                         That gave me the idea to try it on my wire tree that I keep out all year.
                                          After the holidays I decorate it with little metal pots, nests and lace.
                             It was needing a little pick me up too.

                                                  Now it’s my new OGM( old gray mare) tree.

                                      Thank you Suzan you’ve touch my heart with your kindness and friendship.
                              Now rush over and check out her shop.
                              ……she has roses in an array of colors along with other wonderful
                      handmade goodies.

The necklace is beautiful, Carole. No wonder you wanted it. How sweet of Suzan to add those pretty roses to your order and you found the perfect way to display them in that wire tree. It looks just gorgeous with the roses, nests, lace and cute little buckets.
Hugs to you,

ahem..well I am not sure how to respond to such kindness, from you and from the commentators. Golly, can these days become any sweeter for me?

Oh wow, I am enjoying Ingrid- cranking up the volume. "All love oh wo oh"
You know how I feel about you my friend, So I will simply say thank you once more.

BTW I think I'm in love with Charlotte. Her coloring is wonderful.
