More sweet birds & a new friend!

My little house wren quilt has finally arrived at its permanent home with Marcy of Queen Marcy Originals ~ I'm so glad you like it Marcy, I love knowing that it's hanging in your home.
Thank you so very much for purchasing it!!!

I've just got to share another wonderful find with you!! Can you believe this precious bird book? It has a copyright of 1921... I believe I officially have a collection of bird books now ~ I found this one on Ebay as well, not for .99 cents but still less than ten bucks, so I'm a happy girl!!

I scanned three of the images for you to have too ~

Here are the three scanned images below,
just be sure to click to enlarge then right click to save!

You already know how much I enjoy blogging and meeting so many precious friends.....well, I also love to help someone else start blogging too!! I guess I want them to see what a wonderful community it is ~ the inspiration that is shared here as well as the kindness and generosity.

We have a new blogger in our midst that I would love for you to welcome....Rose at Bella Rosa has just started her blog this week!!!
She has such a sweet spirit ~
Welcome to the Land of Blog dear Rose!!!

I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday sweet friends ~

xxoo, Dawn

Hi Dawn,
Your house wren quilt is so sweet ~ but so is everything that you make!
Thanks for sharing Bella Rose with us ~ what a great blog! I love how Rose writes...I was smiling the entire time I was reading her posts! It's so nice of you to encourage her and you did a lovely job with her blog look! How do you do your backgrounds? They are so soft & subtle.

Beautiful book too! The images are amazing!

Dawn- The thing that amazes me most is not your talent (which speaks for itself) but the fact that you manage to BLOG everyday. That's the truly amazing part. Joy

LITTLE FRIENDS WITH FEATHERS = what a cute title for that book! I'm really getting into bird images after seeing so many pretty ones on your blog.

Dawn, thanks for mentioning me on your blog about buying your precious House Wren. You didn't need to do that, but I appreciate it. I am just so tickled with it that I had to show it on my blog to everyone I know!!!!

Have a great week.

Hi Dawn,
I have been to your blog many times since Lidy-French Garden house told me how wonderful you are. I just started my own blog with her encouragement and because of your great example.
I just went to see Rose and was happy and surprised to see we are located in the same area and we both just started our blogs! She is off to a great start.
Thanks for everything you have shared with me since I found you.......Kim

Dawn, you were so right, the images in your new bird book are beautiful. I have always loved your blog since the first day I came across it. Like I told you I love that you not only share the beauty that you create, but you are so gracious to give lil mini tutorials so that we can try to make the items we love ourselves. And then you share these beautiful images with us. My stars, Your heart is truly kind! Thank you so much for my beautiful blog and introducing me to such wonderful people. I will forever be greatful! Your friend always......Rose

What a sweet book. It was meant for you! I'm so glad you found it!


Angela said...

You by far are the sweetest, most generous person I know! I read your blog every day but fail to comment, I'm usually spazzed hopping from blog to blog in my 15 min. of computer time, but I just had to let you know what a wonderful person I think you are. You share and share so many images with us,share your beautiful creations and even tell us how to make our own and then you go above and beyond to help a fellow blogger....you are the coolest!!! Hope you get to feeling better and I want to come up and go shopping with you soon!! ha, i just had to edit this, my word verification for this comment is "knockbra", hahahahaha.

O.K. - I'm officially jealous (just kidding!) - I love your new find - "Little Friends in Feathers"...it's absolutely wonderful! I go on there occasionally looking for bird books - I love the old ones - they have so much character...I'm so glad you found it.


P.s. Hope you are feeling better! :+)
