inspiration/goodies : shades of winter f2:w11

Well good grief! How can I already be behind in my own series?!?! I'll tell you how. Someone has turned up the dial a bit on how quickly time passes. Seriously! Okay, well, maybe not, but it sure feels that way. So here we go:

Isn't that photo gorgeous! I love it! It's especially delightful to me, because it brings back fond memories of bird watching at my grandparents house. Granny and Papa always hung a bird feeder outside the kitchen window. Most of the time there were just finches and sparrows there to dine, but some years we would get a few cardinals there. I was a little jealous for the female cardinals since they are brown, while the males get to me beautiful shades of red. But, such is nature I suppose. Still, brown or red, I was always excited to see the cardinals. And few things are as beautiful as a cardinal on a snowy day. Don't you think?

And here are some wonderful goodies inspired by the colors in that lovely photograph:

Aren't those awesome!?!? I'm seriously loving that tote! I was just thinking the other day about how I need a couple more totes to haul things around. There's more awesome designs at that shop! And the mini houses, and the moonstone bracelet... AGH! I'm loving a lot of things in this collection! lol!

Well, I do have one more shades of winter post coming up later this week so check back for that. It's going to be another gorgeous color combination, I promise! 

I hope you're all having a fabulous day!
