The Birds' Christmas Tree ~

I have several very old children's books from around 1887 or so. The images are so beautiful and the writing as well. As I've not been very good at sharing new things I've made lately, but I do want to share with you these sweet images! Just click to enlarge and right click to save to your computer. The poem is just wonderful! Read about making your own bird Christmas tree HERE ~







I also want to share with you the name that Brent and Emily have decided on for our sweet granddaughter!!! Her name will be Madeline Clara Edmonson ~ and she will be called Clara .... our sweet baby Clara!!


Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday sweet friends!
xxoo, Dawn

Such beautiful names! I especially love Clara!!
Being a grandmother is such a wonderful thing! Words can't quite describe what it feels like ~ although one that you like comes close.

Being a grandmother is pure BLISS!

I'm so excited for you!

Did they make it to yours ok? I bet you were up all night getting them moved in.
Won't it be wonderful when you can read these little gems you share with us to Clara?
Hope you were able to get some rest. And wow, there are a ton of Donny fans out there!:)

What a beautiful name your son & daughter in law have chosen.
Being a bird lover (like you) we have a tree just outside our kitchen window that is already strung with cranberries and orange wedges. Hopefully the squirrels will leave something for the birdies :-)

Oh, Madeline Clara is such a beautiful, beautiful name--you are going to LOVE being a grandmother, Dawn! I cannot tell you enough how wonderful and rewarding it is--I imagine a Victorian production of "The Nutcracker" when I think of the name of Clara--so sweet. XOXO, Jann
PS--Where did you find this gorgeous photo?

Hi Dawn,

I stumbled on your website first seeing the posted poem "Among The Trees", and I fell in love with the artwork and the poem. I wonder if you could tell me the name of the book, the author, and when it was printed. You have so many treasures on your website! Thank you for sharing.

Christine
