Feathered Friends with Wishes...


Some of my most favorite feathered friends here to wish you
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012!


I have been sketching while my watercolor paints dry...
Trying to keep little treasures in my Etsy store~
Cardinals have been perching in the Honeysuckle bush
beside my studio window~
Just begging to have their portraits sketched!


They find a perfect spot and fluff-up~


In my mind, there is always a need to dress them~


In our travels to family Christmas celebrations we passed
by Montezuma Wildlife Refuge where we saw hundreds of 
Canada Geese resting on thin ice, shallow waters and swamp...
Shiver to the bones!
Would love to dress them cozy warm~


Hope your New Year is filled with supportive dear ones~


Hope your New Year is filled with friends, family & the like~
Times shared & wonderful new memories made!
Wishing you joy and happiness throughout!

Your feathered friends look so toasty and cozy with their 'warmies' on. I'm so glad they were there to greet me on the first morning of the New Year!

Blessings to you and your family in 2012!

These are just the sweetest! I just could not resist--I bought the long one and am going to make it into a bookmark.

Thanks!
