Where would we be without birds? I cannot imagine a world without them. I have loved watching them since I was little, but truly my love affair with them only began after I had my first child. Can it really be that that was 24 years ago? Almost 25 now? He would sit in his high chair and look at the birds outside, gathering around the feeders that we had placed on our porch outside the kitchen window.
These little juncos haved been plentiful around the feeders lately, to say the least! They are somewhat friendly little birds and don’t scare as easily as some other birds, like the cardinals or bluebirds.
Aren’t they cute!!?
Oh, the little titmouse! I love these birds as well.
In other news, I continue to play around with denim and scraps of fabric, adding pieces of this and that, and having OH-SO-MUCH-FUN ending up with house dresses, so to speak: fun stuff to wear around the house while I work and play, paint and feed the birds, cook and clean.
I really do love the top on this one! I am going to have to try this technique again. The denim jumper had a very cute upper 1/3, but the rest of the dress was straight and not very giving, and ended up making a girl look quite thick and unshapely!
Hair was still a bit damp from washing earlier in the day.
Not a perfect dress, no. But different. No one has one like it but me. It’s fun, modest, and I had fun making it! I say, whatever you do, be yourself and have fun!
I found a quotation today that I loved. Made me think of my new life. Or maybe a past life. All of our daughters should write this on their hearts:
No man is worth your tears; and the one who is won’t make you cry. ~unknown.
