Be mine birdie

Happy Tuesday stampers, scrappers & crafters!

Oh, just give me birdies and more birdies!

This cute little birdie is one of my latest finds! I just love the little heart she is holding (I decided it was ladyl birdie)!

We have a momma birdie that has a nest over our front door and has for years! She faithfully returns every year to her nest that is tucked into the faux fruit garland topper. Thus, the garland remains up 365 days a year! Her nest was safe from the smoke and recent fire storm we had in October thank goodness! 12 feet away from the front door, a screen had blown off the window and burned!

Our little bird resident has returned and is a busy bee! She is a gold colored sparrow size, and before we know it she'll be chirping to the beauty of spring! Her babies drive us crazy for awhile, but it is just so wonderful! New life begins, and the cycle has started again!

Nature is amazing and we are blessed to have this little beauty at our door top! Anytime I can get my hands on a birdie stamp I think of our little momma bird!
