Bunny's Birds

We have been in the process of re-modeling the room that I craft in so I haven't created for a few weeks. They got it wrapped up today. Yay! Gone is the 1984 carpet. That was the last room in the house that had carpet. Gone is the popcorn ceiling. Goodbye louvered doors that were a pain to keep clean. I still have one set left in the house. All of the old mis-matched tables and storage will go back in until a later date. I need a new craft desk and table. 

I haven't been around much to visit your blogs but  I will when I get everything put back in order. I'm ready to start creating again. 

For your viewing pleasure I thought I'd share some pictures of some of the birds we get in our yard. We are so fortunate to get such a beautiful variety. We live close to the ocean and we have just a little bit of wooded area across the street from us. We have a huge oak tree in the back yard. Our birds are somewhat spoiled. We make them homemade suet that doesn't melt in the Florida heat. 


 Barred Owl 



Osprey. He is always across the street from us while it's lunch time.  Notice that he has his fresh catch with him. (Fish)



Pileated Woodpecker



Red Bellied Woodpecker


Hairy Woodpecker

 Blue Jay
 Baltimore Oriole - Female

Baltimore Oriole - Male

 American Robin


Not a clue but it has some great markings

 Painted Bunting - we haven't seen him in years and the picture didn't turn out well at all. We saw him only once. Disappointed.

 One Bluebird and two sweet Wrens

 Bluebird checking out the nesting box
We purchased a real bluebird box for them a few months ago.

I'm missing pictures of the cardinals, chickadees, titmouse, yellow-bellied sap sucker and the downy woodpecker. Those are the ones I can think of. Some of the birds are seasonal. The Baltimore Orioles normally arrive in October and leave in late February. They love to eat oranges that are filled with grape jelly. The Robins arrive in January and they come in huge flocks. They are noisy but fun to watch and only stay a few weeks. The Painted Bunting arrives in spring and we only got to see him one time this year. The barred owl stayed in our oak tree for about 3 hours. That was a first for us this year. The rest are here year round. Most of these birds love dried meal worms, black oil sunflower seed and homemade suet. They love live worms but we don't spoil them that much. Too expensive. Once in a while we get the Cedar Wax Wings. It's been quite a few years since I've seen them. My husband has taken most of the pictures. He does a great job.  Enjoy, y'all.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge June- Anything Goes or optional "Spots and/or Stripes"


Penny Black – Man's Best Friend
Copics  E31 35, YG 03 17 67, BG0000 B000
Whimsy Stamps - Up In The Clouds die

The nice thing about creating cards is that we can choose colors we want. My sun is brown and white. I thought it matched my card so I went with it. I used 2 striped patterned papers for this card. The grass was blended together with Copic Colorless Blender and a terry cloth rag to give it texture. 

Welcome to Penny Black's Saturday Challenge - June where the challenge is always Anything Goes with the option of:

"Spots and/or Stripes"

I was selected as Guest Designer for this month at Penny Black Saturday Challenge and I'm happy and honored to be here to share my creation with you.
