The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Haven for Birds. . .

Seems On Crooked Creek, 
this little 'blue bird' has decided to build her nest 
within my black lantern!




I was sure I had shut the door. . .






It's the third Wednesday!
Time for Note Card Party @ A Haven for Vee!

Today's photos are my first entered for the Note Card Party.

Haven for Birds seemed fitting for my first entry.
For my subject matter, I chose my black lanterns 
from the back deck On Crooked Creek!(here)




Note Card #1.




Note Card #2.





Note Card #3.




Note Card #4.


Here's hoping that your Spring is filled with pleasant surprises!



Surprise a friend today. . .
send them your love and best wishes. . .
in a Note Card!


Until next time. . .

On Crooked Creek will be joining 
the Note Card Party @

A Haven for Vee

Be sure to visit and enjoy 
all the amazing Note Card choices!

Nice theme for your card set, Pat, and lovely photos. I like the nest you have created. It gives me some ideas! I'm just waiting for our pollen to clear to get the porch cleaned off and start enjoying the outside! I do love a cup of tea, as you suggested, It does wonders, for the body and for the soul!
