Good Things....

We have a farm in our town where the owners raise exotic animals.

I got some photos today that I thought you might like.

A miniature pony, miniature burros, camels and a zebra.

These animals looked so sweet today while grazing. They usually have ostriches and buffalo . I will try to get those next time.

I wanted to write something about my friend Andrea's gifts to me as well. She sent these presents about two weeks ago. When I opened the box the first thing I saw was the card with the two American Goldfinches. It made me feel good that someone would remember the story about John's 50 yellow birds in the woods.
She put little dolls, skeleton keys (my favorite things in the world)
A mermaid charm that is so fantastic.
Paper, stickers, embellishments, a little bit of everything I love.
She is a thoughtful and kind person, and a great artist. I hope you check her site out. It is called the Artful Eye, and her link is at the top of my page on the side bar. For some reason I cannot get her link to load on this post.
