Bird Box

We got a surprise in the mail a couple of weeks ago, and I wanted to share it with you.  It is a beautiful bird box made by the lovely Anita at Castles, Crowns, and Cottages.  I ordered it, and she sent it to me right away.  We were so excited to see this cute little box, and I have it right on my desk so I can look at it often throughout the day.



I took pictures of it on a few different backgrounds to show how pretty it is.





Speaking of birds, here's a sweet little video that makes me happy.  The three birds reminds me of my kids.  I can listen to it over and over again.



Thank you, Anita.
We love you.

Hey, the comment box looks different Sheri ummmm
Anyway. I thought you bought one of her little birds on a stick. I ADORE her little bunnies so much. I'm thinking of buying one for CC for her birthday.... It's either that or a piece of jewelry????
LOVE the "Don't worry about a thing" song. Makes me think.... everything will be alright.
Happy Monday girls.
It's snowing here again today. It's all white out there. I'll send you some.
Love You

HI Sheri, Thank you for your visit today. You are right, we do seem to have lots in common! We used to live in CA before we moved to VA. I miss living by the ocean and we do plan to return there in the future. Happy to have discovered your blog now as well and have added you to my reader. Have a lovely week! ~ Julie

Very pretty box, from a very encouraging heart.
Stopped by for the beautiful sounds and words.
I was reminded of you and your girls the other day when I watched Diane Keaton's movie, "Because I Said So." Not sure if you've ever seen it, but it involves a mom and three grown daughters. Even though you have two, their relationship reminded me of you and your lovelies.
Hope you have a beautiful day.
Much love!
