Hello, Thank you for visiting me today, I wanted to share the daily visitor's we have out our kitchen window. We have lots of different squirrels, turkeys, and deer. Notice one male turkey with all these ladies. As you can see we still have snow on the ground and are expecting more from the nor'easter on Friday. Will spring ever come? The poor deer are eating bird seed, they really need spring to come. I hope you have a wonderful day. Hugs, Terri

Hello, Thank you for visiting me today, Pay It Forward is back for 2011. I had an opportunity to play along with the most talented artist Tina when she posted about it on her blog Tiny Bear.
Here's how you can play. The first five people who comment on this blog post will receive a handmade gift from me. I already have them finished, so I will be mailing them out to you right away. In return, you must write a blog post on your blog explaining Pay It Forward 2011. Then you send out a handmade gift to the first 5 visitors who leave a comment on your blog. Take your time, you don't need to send them all today or tomorrow. Gifts from the heart are worth the wait! This is such a wonderful way to make new friends and share the love of things we create with our hearts and hands.
"It's not the size of the gift that matters,
but the spirit of paying it forward."
but the spirit of paying it forward."
I hope you join me, or another blogger Pay It Forward. Wishing you a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

Hello, thank you for visiting me today, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I want to share with you a couple of beautiful things I received in the mail last week. The first is the beautiful heart from Tina, I decided to play along with Tina's Pass it Forward and this is the beautiful gift that she sent me. I have always loved hearts and I was so excited when I opened her package all the way from Denmark. She has such a beautiful blog, you must visit her TinyBear , she also has a wonderful Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/tinybeardk . You should see the beautiful bears that she makes, they are just precious. Thank you so much Tina, I will treasure your beautiful heart always. I will be listing my Pass it Forward on Wednesday, I have been busy making my five items, if you would like to play, please come back on Wednesday.
The second beautiful gift that I would like to share with you is the beautiful crown that I received from Amy, back in January she was having a giveway for one of these so sweet crown's. I had posted a comment on her beautiful blog, mittens at home hoping to win her sweet crown, well she was just so sweet, everyone who left a comment was going to receive one of her beautiful crowns, she said it would take her awhile but she would send everyone one. She asked what letter we wanted on our crown. I picked "T". I love it, it is made from vintage book pages. Amy also has a beautiful Etsy shop Vintage Market Place . Thank you so much Amy, I love your beautiful crown, I am planning on putting it on a special bear that I have. I hope you have a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

The trees are are so weighted and lots of branches are breaking, my husband cleaned off the bushes. We are expecting another 3 inches of snow by tonight. Oh I am so ready for spring. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Terri
