A Parliament of over 25 birds!!!! "who-o-o, who-o-o"

I hit a parliament yesterday at a Thrift shop. I honestly don't think I will ever see this variate of owls ever, ever again. I bought 30 of them and brought them home to the amazement of my family, WHO, don't know what to think!!!!!!

Jelly Bean Ball soon to be Topiary

Yes, your eyes are seeing right, that is jelly beans glued on a Styrofoam ball awaiting it's finishing touches and becoming a topiary. I was inspired by Crafty Sisters check out their blog.

I love the plate it is resting on. It is Vintage Mikasa Duplex by Ben Seibel. I was thrilled to find 5 plates to add to my coffee cups.

The Rooster Crows A Book of American Rhymes and Jingles

This book by Maud and Miska Petersham is a wonder for the eyes. I bought the Thirteenth Printing 1966 , The Macmillan Company Publisher. Every other illustration is drawn in these muted colors. I Googleg this fine husband and wife team and found several other books by them. The book was a diamond in the rough, because it was scuffed up and dirty on the outside. I am glad I opened the cover!
