I'm at it again ... painting birds. This time it's songbirds. They're a bit smaller than the giant woodpeckers ~ but still larger than life. These will be put on to a dowel rod and then you'll be able to stick them into a flower pot or into your garden or placed wherever you please around the yard. I only have 13 of them showing on this picture; but I plan on cutting out and painting at least another 3 dozen or so.
I think I'm going to have to make some more woodpeckers too because I've been getting a few calls for them :) The ones I've made are all spoken for already and I haven't even taken them to a craft show yet.
Night before last ... I was heading out to the outdoor wood stove to fire up for the night and I saw a pair of eyes looking at me from the corner of the building. I cautiously continued and I heard a big thump in the lean-to that's connected to the back of our garage ... where we have the smokehouse set up.
Next morning ... look what I see ... inside the lean-to ...
a bear print in the sand.
I keep telling Dear Hubby we NEED a light out there on that corner of the yard. As it is right now we have to walk in the dark until we get inside the wood shed to turn on a light. We can turn on the garage light; but there is still a good 20 feet or so of walking in darkness to get to the shed.
Oh the joys and thrills of living the way we do!
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
