Oh!
I don't ever need to pop over here when I'm in a hurry...getting ready to go and grab take out Thai food...coming right back home to snuggle in and watch "No Reservations." Oh...Koralee...have you seen Julie & Julia?
If not...you must! Adorable! Have you seen "Enchanted?" Watched that last weekend..cute cute!
Want to go see "It's Complicated!"
Woops...my friend...we're supposed to be talking about birdies!!!
Oh I do love birds!
I miss my bird feeders...why did I leave them alllll behind at our cottage under the pines in Alabama?
Oh the moments...the hours spent on the side porch of the cottage...outdoor kitties nestled in around us as we sipped our morning coffee and watched the birds flutter about the feeders. So many warm wonderful memories.
Oh to just go back to that cottage with the birds and the kitties for a day.
Oh I dare not...I may want to stay a wee bit longer than one day!
Speaking of birds...
another I watched a week or so ago...only because I have it and just wanted an old movie playing while I was doing this and that...
THE BIRDS...Hitchcock!
XXOOXX
And please do tell where in the world that adorable cupcake in your new photo of the week came from.
Oh...and I'm beginnig to think that Trader Joe's...has the cutest packaging EVER!!!!

Teresa said...

Oh...guess what sissy and I discovered the other day when we spent time together 2600 miles apart on your blog...
KORALEE LOVES TO TAKE PICS OF FEET!!!!
Why did it take me soooo long to realize this?
XXOOXX

Maria said...

Koralee!

Oh Thank You Soooo Much!

What F*U*N !!!

The book looks absolutely adorable.
I will take it to school to read to my students ~ and they will know that it came all the way from the Olympic city of Vancouver!
I will look the part that day wearing my Vancouver Olympic pins!

I am smiling ear-to-ear with excitement!

This is so very generous of you, Koralee.

It will always be a treasured gift from a person who IS a treasure to so many~

Thank you again dear ♥ heart!

Bravo Martha and Koralee, I love birds too, and you have a lot to do with it. I have always loved them, but you have animated them and glamorized them like I have never seen them before. You are a prize in yourself. God bless you, Anita

LOVE your necklace, Koralee!.. and I do LOVE the birds too! LOVE watching and feeding them.. and I totally see myself looking like the bird ladies from Mary Poppins or Home Alone, standing in the middle of the park, or sitting on steps, bleachers, or some park bench, feeding the birds "toppins a bag"!

Happy weekend Koralee, what a pretty necklace and so appropriate for 'Bluebird' Notes. I am also in plate lust for the absolutely gorgeous dark blue birdie plate, I've seen some folk inspired Marimekko crockery similar to this quite recently, it's lovely. We have been keeping our own little wild birds well fed over the past few snow filled weeks .. lots of left over cupcakes and other goodies xxx

Oh this is lovely! I suddenly realized I need to flit through your archives! I am always inspired by your posts :) This necklace is gorgeous. I think I may have to fly over and take a peek at Kate's blog.

I love birds as well. Especially blue birds and sparrows.
