Sharing some love, friendship, and a little nesting!!!

Back in June my friend Lori did a bird swap! I was on vacation and tried to sign up through email stealing wifi from behind a coffee house. Well, me and computers, mainly me do not work well together, so I sent it to cyberspace, one again. When I got back I resent an email to Lori that she actually got. The swap was already assigned, but Lori has the biggest loving, caring heart, and said she would swap with me. I really love crows. She does not!! But she sent me some cool things. I wanted to share them with you. One I am saving to show with my Fall decorations. Lori knows I am planning a new craft/studio. So, she sent me this awesome burlap holder with black birds on it and she tied all of these ribbons on it. I have decided on these colors for the room. And of course my favorite brown and orange.
I've put my Where Women Create magazines in it. They fit perfect and I only get them with my 40% off coupon from Joann's. Most of the time I go to Borders, have my chai tea, warmed chocolate chip cookie, and look at all the magazines!! I am always writing things down. One of my favorite dates with Sim.

Lori made this awesome sign for my new room!! I put some of my favorite things with it!! The birds nest is a real Robins nest that Sim's Mom gave him for his birthday if he came over and got it!! He got two of them!! Those robins build some awesome nest!! I love my coffee and this coffee cup! This special sign will be going right over my desk area where I can see it!! The weather is finally starting to break alittle here in Michigan and that means we can start painting real soon!! I can't wait!! Thank you my friend Lori for letting me put alittle bit of our friendship in a room that will mean so much to me.

Dear Blessed...
God is so awesome the way he brings the perfect friends to us even through a computer.
I love coffee and crows too! I have mailed your box to you today. Thank you so much for your patience and kindness Fran. I have a feeling our friendship was made by the hand of God and he will never let it go.
Sending an email to you today too. I'm having Mary (my 83 yr old grandma friend) for lunch today and I'm determined to go on a neighborhood bike ride!

Hi Fran
Just found your blog this morning (through a pic on Boxwood Cottage's flickr collage of favourite images) :-)I loved the stocking with b&w postcard ♥
Looking forward to stopping by again.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Lori is so sweet! She sent you a bunch of great things. How's your studio coming? I like to go to Borders or Barnes and Noble and just sit and look at the books. Sometimes I have to go back multiple times because I haven't learned yet to jot down notes.
