Here is a picture of the little nest I took while standing on a chair
The sad truth is that we haven't seen our little birdy for a couple of days, so we don't know if she's coming back or not. MEH!!
My joy at the prospect of the little birdy residing on my front door was snuffed out, and along with the other emotions the day held for me, to be honest...I was struggling.
I told my hubby I was going out to Michael's to get some card making stuff, and to have some time alone. I got some cool stuff, and on my way back into the neighborhood, I stopped at my mailbox. I didn't have my key with me yesterday, so there were a few days of mail in it.
I got home, ate dinner, and got the stack of mail and sat on the sofa to go through it. I felt better than when I left, but still not great.
You know that song that says "His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He cares for me"?
Well, there was a bubble envelope in the mail from Texas, and it was for me!!
I knew exactly who it was from because this special friend won a little something from me a month or so ago.
I read the sweet note she included (also adorable and handmade)
And then I hurriedly opened the package and to my sheer delight it was full of little birdies from no other than the amazingly talented TAMI at Aunt Mimi's Creations!!!
My eyes were full of joyful tears as I pulled out one after another lovely handmade cards and tags.
Here they are all together...absolutely glorious!!
