I Won...

Last month I entered a giveaway on The Hot Glue Hangover blog.  Lucinde from Lucilight was giving away two postcards from her etsy shop.  I had never entered a giveaway before...and I won!  I received two beautiful postcards.  Thank you, Lucinde.  Check out her shop. It's awesome.

Joyful July!

What a busy month this has been!  My brother from Oklahoma surprised us with a week long visit.  Then one of our nieces and her husband from Texas came the following week.  We had such a good time showing them the beauty of western Washington state and catching up on family news.  Now I'm back to the garden art routine, trying to get more glass flowers as well as a few other items made for my etsy shop. 

We're still having four legged visitors, too.  I found a deer dining on our red twig dogwood.  Of course I shot her....with a camera.  I stood right there watching her eat my plants and she watched me watch her. 

Check out my etsy shop periodically.  I hope to create some new types of garden art.  My mind is racing, but my body is having trouble keeping up.

Birds of a Feather...

Five years ago we moved from a house in the country with a view of the bay and Olympic mountains.  We had decided it was time to move into town.  We couldn't find a lot to build on that had that wonderful view so we settled for a non-view lot.  I do sometimes miss the view we had, but it has been replaced with wonderful wildlife, some of which we didn't have there.  We've frequently seen deer around our property and now we have a doe and fawn hanging out in the city property just across the fence from us.  For the first time we have a couple of white doves and we've seen mother quail with their babies.  It doesn't get much better than this.
