My new make-do bird feeder, and meet "Acorn"

This is my make-do bird feeder Sim made for me. Last Friday I had surgery. He said to me I'm gonna go feed the birds. The next thing I knew he was sitting this feeder up outside the livingroom window. He took an old ladder some wood an old rusty pan hooks and my suet cake feeders to make it. It didn't take the birds long to find it!!

I love it and I am enjoying it so much!!

I get pretty bored laying on the couch so I whipped up another Raggedy Prim Pigg doll. This is "Acorn". I found this material at JoAnn's before my surgery. I am also making a Raggedy Fran Farmgirl with the same material. I had these acorns and thought what a cool ideal to put one on her head. I am listing her in  my Etsy Shoppe. She smells real yummy and looks very grubby! I love the way each one turns out so different.
I have been watching alot of reruns of The Mentalist and NCIS! LOL Thank God for cable TV!! We got a new internet provider and I am loving my cable! LOL Today I started watching Castle! it's a marathon! LOL Sewing and watching TV and the birds.

I have also been taking little walks outside. I couldn't believe it when I saw that my clematis had blooms! This is always one of my first flowers to bloom in the Spring!! So I'm wondering is it Fall or Spring!! LOL
 My pain is getting better so I will be getting out n about more and I can't wait!! As you can see I am going crazy! LOL But at least I have Gods world to look at!!
XOXO Love Fran.

Acorn is so cute! I love your new bird feeder too, and hope that as you heal you have lots of birds stopping by to visit! The new hallway is awesome, that Sim, he can build pretty much anything can't he? The tractor swing would have been my kids favorite place to play when they were little. you are a blessed girl. I hope you heal quickly and aren't in too much pain. love, t.xoxoox said...
