Something

Something New...


Something Old...


Something Borrowed....


and Something Cold....





A NEW mosaic for Mary 






My very first Santa I painted...
very OLD.





I BORROWED this image from
a new site I just found:
check it out for some fun vintage crafting ideas!!


and Finally....




We've been enjoying some 
unseasonably warm weather,
but the sparrows in the barn
have been busy gathering 
and nesting for those COLD winter nights!

"Poor little birds, hanging on for survival
on the South Dakota prairie!,
The least they deserve is top
billing on our blog for awhile!!

Stay warm friends!
Lisa


Thank you to Andrea at Everyday Beauty
for a vintage ornament image used in my collage
another lovely site to check out in your free time!

What a precious post. First of all, I LOVE the barn shot. It makes me feel quite at home out here in the county where I live. I immediately spotted your M.E. picture behind your dear hand painted Santa. I love her things. She always brightens my day with her paintings and words. Your vintage card is so dear. I remember old cards quite well. And the mosaic is lovely. What a grand post this Christmas season. genie

The final photo of the red barn and the sparrows really caught me eye. It's lovely. Hope the little feathered friends find enough to eat this winter.❄
