Sweet Birdie House Find...Happy B-day Alyssa!

What a looooooooong week it has been! I will say, I did get plenty of projects finished, for my booth and a HUGE convention center show in October that I'm in (lots to work towards!).

A HUGE Happy 21st Birthday to my daughter Alyssa, actually it's tomorrow, but I'll be away most of the day at a breast cancer auction/fundraiser event, Love you!

"I have this little angel. For me she left her wings.
She has no idea how much happiness she truly brings.
She brightens up my days with her smiles and her laughs.
She helps me to remember all the blessings that I have.

I know that God must love me, He showed me with His Grace
I knew just how completely when I saw my angel's face.
And in that very moment when she came into my world,
I knew that she was so much more than just my baby girl.

She would be my sunshine, with a sweetness that won't end.
And when she grows up one day she would be my closest friend."

All I can say is this old birdhouse is AWESOME!!
This sweet thing was sitting out at the road (curb)all by it's lonesome...had to have it...but it was way too big for me to pick-up and toss into my SUV all by my self.

Bye for now, hoping, crossing my fingers and praying NOBODY would snatch her up before my hubby came home from work. "Not until dark, you know I don't like picking until dark." was Mark's reply...while I wined and begged to go NOW!

FINALLY, in the SUV we went...the anxiety of not knowing if it would be there or not was torture! Oh YES!...YES...YES! there it was, STILL pulling off to the side of the road (skidding to a hault)while Mark had his door half open..."Pop the hatch Karen,hurry up!" I didn't realize that this thing wold almost fill the entire back of my vehicle!

Oh look at her, I can't wait to fix her up. I think it's going to need new wood on the roof...broken china mosaics perhaps?

"Hmmmm, smells like little tiny birdies!" My dog Missy loves chasing birds, she NEVER catches any though.

"What birdie? I didn't eat NO birdie!" ( :

I promise to show you a picture of it when I'm done!
Have a wonderful Pink Saturday, I won't be participating this week...miss you all!
