Hello.....boy is my face red.
Why it was hiding in a pile of fabric squares I had been cutting out before the great Holiday card put together began, I don't have a clue. Other than I cleared off my work space and it was neither red nor white, did not have a gnome or a donkey on it, was not polkie dotted, and frankly did not speak up when I called for it when I noticed it had wandered off.
I've had suggestions by the cuckettes and other smart alecky birds to chain it to something big, like they do the bathroom keys at gas stations with the wheel cover.....so it won't just take to walking off again. I've also thought I should install a remote alarm on it so that I can find it should I hide it from myself again. I have to do that with my cell phone.......I call it using GK's phone when and if she can find hers or it is charged, to find out where it is.
The cuckoos are really not very bright birds.
And while we're on the subject of good stuff.....now that's what I call a transition. I must share photos of two giveaways that I have won. The first is from Anna at Frosted Petunias and was an extra prize given at the wonderful Mysterieux Carnival. I now have an original silver ticket, magic pumpkin and autumn leaves, a scroll explain how to catch a falling star, a bottle of star shine, a dew drop pumpkin rememberance and all of this was packaged so delightfully in black sparkles and orange gingham wonderfulness. Thank you so much Anna.
