A wonderful surprise arrived in the mail from Canada yesterday.  Sandy sent all these treasures:  cupcake magnets, cupcake stamps, a journal, a candle, and best of all, a heart she made.  It came wrapped in pattern tissue, which just the other day I was wondering where I might get some without destroying a pattern I might use someday.
It's just so pretty!
Hanging on my oh-so-messy bulletin board.
I discovered I have a bird's nest right on top of the light above my front door.  Every time I opened the door a bird would fly out from under the awning and I couldn't figure out why.  I finally looked up and saw that there was a nest.  I got a chair and stood to see if there were eggs.  I couldn't see into the nest but took a picture anyway.  As you can see, there are three eggs.  I am trying not to use the front door as much so I do not disturb the mama bird.  I can't wait to see the babies.  
Yesterday at Dana's house.  I am wearing one of her fancy hair ornaments.  Very summery and festive!

And last, but not least, be sure to check out my Mother's Day post for a chance at my give-a-way.  Just leave a comment on THAT post and I will enter your name into my drawing.  Although it is a thank you to all of you that have been reading my blog for the last 5 1/2 months, you need not be a long-time follower to enter.  I will be accepting entries until midnight on 15 May, so leave your comments!
