A few pictures to share and some thank yous in order...

Good morning!  The sun is shining - wow - what a change...it is usually cold and wintery on my birthday!  Yes- today is my birthday...I'm 25!  HAHA  switch it around...I'm don't feel that old, but time marches on.

I wanted to share a couple of pics with you of the feather trees I completed.  They were made using the tutorial I posted on Day 1 of my Twelve Days of Christmas.  I found that the original pattern was a bit too large for my purposes, so I reduced the size of the wire by a third, and then again by another third to do the smaller tree. If I have time, I may do a large one.  As you can see...a certain kitty was having a lot of fun while I was hanging the balls.

Smidgen did manage to get a ball off the tree!

I also wanted to say a special thank you to a few lovely ladies.  First off, I got a cute Christmas card from Angie and I wanted to say THANK YOU!  It was such a surprise to receive a card from a blogging friend, and it made my day!

I also won this sweet ornament in a giveaway from Linda at Prairie Flower Farm.  It is lovely Linda and I will treasure it!

Lastly, I participated in the World Scramble that Vicky held over at the PAFA group, and I won!  Look what cute things she sent me.  You are so generous Vicky and I love them.  Thanks so much!
Time to get some Christmas shopping done - have a great day!
