I am giggling at your junk drawer comments, Ging! I recently came across this youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6oT4YVNiFw ! She is a hoot, check her out and some of her other videos. So you tackled your junk drawer? That is on my list of declutter this month, too.

And I love that tip about cups! I emailed the link for that website to my daughter, she has 4 children plus 2 stepdaughters, one of which lives with them. Ginger, I always love all the new posts that you find.

Hi Ginger,
I love the Western Bluebird. I have only had them in my yard once.
If you go to the golf course about 10 miles away, they are always there.
Great photo!!
Hope you are having a good day!

What a beautiful bird photograph! The blue is so bright! Thanks for visiting my blog - I learned to knit and crochet in my mid twenties and started dabbling in photography soon after. I think it's great to teach kids to do needlework when they're young, I hope your niece enjoys it!
