This One's For The Birds.


{Click to enlarge}
I wanted to share one of my Christmas gifts with you, from The First Sergeant. A gorgeous hand-painted piece of glass, featuring all native Tennessee birds, and a Morning Glory vine weaving it's way through an old weathered rail-fence.
Just perfect !

It's as if I had commissioned the piece myself, everything so near and dear to my heart.
Not sure which window will be graced with this piece, I'm still working on that.


Oliver couldn't care less.
Birds or NO birds, he's catching up on his beauty sleep..........

Off now to eat the Black-Eye peas....Happy New Year !!

Now that's the kind of thing I would LOVE to have, even if I had to buy it for myself. Don't worry, I'll find a way to show it to my hubby and drop some hints. It's just gorgeous!

Happy New Year, Jo.. I love your glass gift from hubby. Since I love our birds so much, I was VERY interested in seeing those. All I can say is WOW.. That is so neat!!!!

We had our traditional Hoppin' John ---so the black-eyed peas in there hopefully will bring us good luck in 2010.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs,

Jo, if you didn't pick that beautiful window out then your guy is incredibly intuitive or insightful.

The First Sergeant really came through with this gift. It's beautiful. It looks like poor Oliver is worn out from all the festivities.
I hope you and your family have a very ahppy and healthy 2010.

What a delightful gift. Wherever you decide to place it, it will be the perfect one. And that kitty of yours is a little beauty too. Knows his comfort zone doesn't he ;)

I think Oliver landed on his feet arriving at your front door. Mind you, the 1st Sgt. landed on his feet meeting you, didn't he? So you deserve that nice gift.
