I'm a bird lover! No? Not a surprise? Well, let me tell you about something that will be a sweet surprise for some, if not all, of you. Sandi, of Wayside Treasures, is celebrating having exceeded 300 posts on her blog. She has a lovely blog and within her posts are always such lovely photographs. I am super thrilled and super excited to be joining in on Sandi's celebration and spreading the word. Why? Well why not! This couldn't have come at a better time since as of late my little birds flew the coop. Sandi is holding a giveaway, and just viewing the photographs of her giveaway items are worth every bit of my time. I won't even make you wait to see what it is she's giving away because I love the photos and want to share them here:


Go help Sandi celebrate, I'm sure she'd love to have you.

Forgive Me, For I Know Not...

What I've Done!

Like a flash, it's gone! Lost in the ol' cyber world once again. Naturally this shouldn't come as a surprise to many of you as you are well aware that I rarely know what it is I am doing. I'm like that, spontaneous, quick witted yet numb minded. Or is that dumb minded? Either way that's me and here is the result of it all. Notice anything different? Yeah, me too. I lost my birdies flew the coup. I vaguely remember the sound of their wings as they rushed right past me for that great escape, and the last thing I remember is the butt chewing the gave me as they headed out the door. It sounded something like, "We told you we needed more millet and we didn't like the cuttlebones your hanging in our cage." All I could do was sit here, as a lost tail feather floated down landing in my lap, and cry out, pleading ever so loudly, "I'm sorry, please come back."

They never did come back yet, but they did leave behind a little memento or rather a reminder of their past presence. No not that silly, that they managed to hold 'till they got outdoors, at least I think they did as I haven't come across the white muck yet.

They left behind a picture of them in the form of a banner. Wasn't that nice! Personally I think it was left in order to taunt and tease me and be a constant reminder never to leave the dish of millet half empty.

(I swear I thought it was half full)!

To make up for the ever so present BLUE background that somehow took over I'd like to share two things.

First, a great video that I discovered while visiting one of my bloggy friends. I enjoyed listening to the music, but I must confess that I enjoyed watching the video the most.

Second, I received an email from a new blogging friend letting me know she is holding a giveaway. What a sweet thing to do. I was elated that she emailed me and I'd like to spread that joy with the rest of you. Don't miss out on this ever so generous giveaway from Karen, of the Garden Chick. I know she'd love to have you stop by, say hello, and get signed up for her drawing.

Toodle-Loo! I'd love to tell you that I'm off to fix or replace my background, but that would be leaving you with false hope. I've got so many other things I must get accomplished. So for now, and for awhile, you are stuck with my lovely BLUE background.

Aren't I nice?

To make up for it just a tad more, here is a beautiful picture by a wonderful photographer, Silvie Ferizi. Enjoy!
