Sunday's Simple Pleasures!!! and here a CHICK there a CHICK everywhere a CHICK!!!

Today was such an awesome day!! I went and got my son Danny from the group home and took him out to Mickey D's, his favorite dining place and then we went to our special park and walked around!! We found this birds nest and I made a little nature bouquet out of dried flowers from there. It is still pretty brown and dead from the winter but I still love the beauty of it. A great day spent with Danny too!!

And here are some pics of my little chicks I am addicted to making!! I wanted to show you how sweet they are and how cute they are just about anywhere!! LOL

They are just about 2 inches big and I am hand sewing them. Which is fantastic for me!! Cuz I love it so much!! They are made from an old blanket!! I am trying to think of a way to make them into a nest and I think I've come up with alittle something and would like to sell some in my Etsy if I can. I did coffee dye one without any spices so that it wouldn't look dirty. But it's not dry yet so I don't know yet if I like it. When Brooke and I got back from taking Danny out we went for a walk and I found some more goodies down at the end of my street.

As you can see I found another birds nest and I have these cool little peat moss containers that I am trying to make up in to nests and found gatherings. To know me is to know I always have something I've found somewhere!! Usually rusty things or something from nature!! LOL So let me know what ya think of my little chicks!! I love making them and looking forward to making a gathering out them!! Will probably have it done tomorrow and will post pics!!
XOXO Love, Fran.
