Sweet little originals...

Alaina & I were going to surprise the guys and get our Christmas tree today...
It was sunny!
Not too cold~

We have been getting "little trees" the past few years~
So we were confident we could handle the task...

She started working on a final college project...

I've been putting the finishing touches on special order watercolors...

Darkness fell and we still have no tree...

I'm close to chopping off a low-hanging Maple tree limb & adding lights!

On the bright side!
The longer we wait... the longer it will last~

When we finally make it to the tree farm~
Feathered friends &critters with furry tails will be cheering us on!

As I looked out my studio window this afternoon~ 
Something LARGE caught my eye!
I slowly... quietly... stealth-fully searched for a camera!
This picture was taken through sheer curtains~
Red Tail Hawk! 

Isn't it enormous?!
Beautiful friend~ probably caught a glimpse of the Chipmunk
community taking over our backyard.

This last little friend is sharing his heart~
Prayers are with all in Newtown, Connecticut.

I can always count on your fabric sketches to put a smile on my heart! I think your hawk's cousin was in my pepper tree last week. Caught him looking at me, but flew off when I spied him. Have a great weekend!

Deb :o)

I just love your sketches, I had to buy two of your pins yesterday with snowmen, but it was so hard to choose.
