I am thrilled to show off my birthmom to you :) We had our first meeting last Thursday on a lovely sunny day at Island View Beach ( in Saanichton British Columbia ). We sat, gabbed and ate lunch munchies on a log from noon until just after 5, boy was me bum tender ! Then Judy came back home with me where she got to meet my husband Jacques and our son Christian :) It was all so very wonderful, lots of smiling and laughing.
Of course I couldn't help but wonder what similarities we had. Judy enjoys whimsy, crows and ravens, among many other things.
Although I will always love my quiet time, I do look forward to her and I becoming good friends :) I believe my dear mom and dad, now both passed, have had a spiritual helping hand in this meeting and that of my birthfather. It's rather amazing that in less than a year I've been reunited with both of them !!
This perfectly made robins nest was found in our large cedar tree that grows in front of our living room window. Photo was taken a couple of weeks ago. My husband has since taken another photo a couple of days ago, the nest was housing 1 brand new baby robin and 2 robin eggs. I'll get the photo up asap !
*♥*♥*Okay folks ! Here is one of my charms I'm previewing the day before CHARM DAY APRIL 28th !*♥*♥* AND YOU COULD WIN IT !! Please see my last blog about this special fun day or click on the link to your top right.
This charm was made in 2006, using a playing card, wire, broken jewellery bits, faux gems and shell-like 'chips' ( or teeth is what I call them ), along with dabs of paint. The card was attached to the back of some peel and stick floor tile ( remnants from when I was a teenager back in the '80's and wanted to move downstairs. My dear dad created a black and white checkerboard floor for me ).
This is definately considered an 'altered art' charm because of 'altering' the playing card into something other than it's normal use. It's 6" long and 3" wide with the wire. Make a necklace, hang in your window, turn into a magnet, whatever you wish :)
Would you like to win this charm ? All you need to do is leave a wee comment on either this post or tomorrows post. When our son comes home from school Tuesday afternoon, I'll get him to draw a name from a dish. Good luck !!
