Spectacular Nature
Dino & I explored more of Saskatchewan's country roads on Sunday & on our way home...Nature decided to give us a show. From one end of the horizon to the other were millions upon millions of Canada Geese & Snow Geese traveling North to their nesting grounds...the air was filled with the sound of beating wings... I stood there mesmerized by the sheer numbers of little hearts flying above me...never have I seen so many birds flying at once...an experience I will never forget!

Latest Find
I couldn't pass up on giving this old piece a home...found it at my friends antique store & promptly fell in love with it...the patina, old finish...lovely color just sets my heart a flutter...gave it a good oil polish...a little dusting & filled the top with some of my favorite things...I made the little log cabin about 10 years ago...love my birds nests, wasp nests,  feathers  & such...
What stories this pieces could tell us...

Tdipt Mercantile Goodies for May 1st
Hot of the presses...I just designed these three old style pin-keeps this month...my theme being the love of pets...one for horse lovers, one for dog lovers & last but not least...one for cat lovers...
There will be more details about them on my May 1st Tdipt Mercantile update. Hoping to have a wee fuzzy for you as well.
 Till then...
Have a sunshiny day!

Wonderful piece and love the way you have it decorated. We get small flocks that come by, but never that many geese at once.

Hi Susan...Love your newest pin keeps. Very clever!
Your newest antique piece is wonderful. Love it! You can fill it up with all kinds of lovelies...it is fairly deep, so lots of storage.
I was thinking you would be in BC by now..are you still heading there??

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Nancy

Hi, Your designs are fabulous....if you don't already, I bet the world would go crazy for patterns of your pin cushions! I am a pattern designer myself and I love making my designs into patterns. I especially love it when people send pics to me of their projects using my patterns.
Just a thought!

What a wonderful experience!!! I adore the sound of geese flying overhead...honking as they go..I'm not sure why but it always makes me so sentimental and brings happy tears to my eyes.

LOVE your new piece of furniture..wow!

Your new offers are wonderful.

Wishing you a great day,
Doreen

It was very exciting to see you in "Prims"! What a gorgeous magazine. Your new piece of furniture reminds me of my old Baker's Table...especially because of the bread board that comes out. Is yours a baking table? Are the holes in the doors for air? Like a pie safe? Very interesting...I love its look! Your new pin keeps are lovely! The dog looks like one of my favorites- a Griffon!How nice to have a pin keep hanging- useful and so eye-catching!

Nature is so very beautiful. I have been listening to a lot of that lately, rather then music and such.

Love your new primitive piece. Imagine if they could tell their story...

And your new pinkeeps, very neat. Have a great day.

Hugs,
~Tonya

Thanks for posting the wonderful picture of the geese. My father always told me to make sure you remember to stand still and look straight up at least once a day. This is why. Love visiting and seeing your delightful work. Thanks!
