It's a Wild-Life!

Over the past two Saturdays Mr. Biff and I have gone out and
about thrifting and garage sale-ing.  Amazing finds but even more
amazing is what you might see while you are out.

Often you have to look hard to see who's hiding in the photo.....
Can you see me hiding in the grass?  Look closer.....
Here I am...having a little snooze until you came along!
Vancouver Island is a veritable deer sanctuary - they do have some natural
predators - cougars and wolves but none in town (thank goodness!)
Can you see the little bird (a sparrow) against the rocks in the background?
She lit on the branch only for a moment - I wasn't even sure
I got her in the shot!
And this huge pilliated woodpecker was on the pole at the end of our driveway
squawking up a storm!  It was hard to get a pic against the clouds...
And here's the wildest of the wild....Mr. Biff on beautiful Long Beach...
Happy Father's Day to all of the great Dads out there!

One Year Wow! My Top Ten....

I can't believe I have been blogging for one year today!  Yeah!  I have
a fabulous giveaway lined up for this week to celebrate but today I
thought I would share my top ten projects.  These are projects that I
have completed in the past year that I may not have done had I not
been blogging.....

The caption below each photo will take you to the original post!  You
will note the last year has not only been evolutionary for me in
actually getting my projects done but also in developing,
designing and renaming the blog!

What a great year, filled with great blog friendships and unbelievable
inspiration from the blog-o-sphere!   Oh, and over the last
year I have won 2 (count'em) TWO fabulous giveaways from
two of you.....that's why I want to give back!  I do so hope you will
come back this week to check out the fabulous giveaway I have
 to celebrate my blogiversary!

Fairy Garden Chair

Landfill Rescue

French Table

Lacy Drum Table


Parisien Birds

Silver Lamp

Turqouise Lantern

Curb Dresser
