This little birdie has taken up residence under my cloche for Christmas.
I threw a few berries in for her to eat, but so far she's ignored them.

The feather tree sits in an old milk glass dish. I'm not sure what it's original purpose was. The small vintage glass balls are the perfect size for the tree. The vintage Putz house was my mother-in-law's and got me started on my collection.
I think Birdie's determined to wish you a wonderful day.
What are your weekend plans? Are you as busy as I am?
I am taking part with a choir in a concert tonight and Saturday evening with The LaPointes, a contemporary Christian group, at a church in town. It's their final Christmas concert as a group and a really big event.
Yesterday I baked 2 kinds of shortbread cookies ~ Craisin shortbread cookies and regular shortbread cookies with frosting. Then I made a large pot of vegetable/chicken soup. The cookies are now in the freezer although a few were enjoyed before hand. ;)
The freezer is a good place for them. However, it doesn't take long for shortbread cookies to thaw out and they taste good when they're cold too. Don't ask me how I know.
I've been visiting around in blogland and gone on some of the Christmas virtual home tours too. I noticed a lot of red and white and, country or farmhouse style this year. Did you? I love it! There are some very creative decorators out there.
The weather this morning is cloudy and foggy after rain in the night. It is mild but the weekend will be below freezing again. I don't like this roller coaster weather do you?
I bought this Amaryllis bulb about a month ago and planted it in the pot per the directions a week later. I think it's a dud. My blogger friend, Linda of Stitch Lines, also bought the same bulb at the same store and hers is also a dud. I asked at the store the other day about these 'dud' bulbs and the clerk suggested I wait another week then return it. I hope they have more bulbs that aren't duds by that time. Have you ever had a dud bulb?? It's rather disappointing when you're expecting gorgeous blooms around Christmas.
Well, that's it for today. I have things to do, like laundry, and a run into town this afternoon to the Christmas craft market, errands, pick up hubby, come home, eat a quick supper and get ready to go back to town for the concert. Phew!
"Birdie" and I wish you a wonderful weekend!
