Thanksgiving, A Bird and A Christmas Gift (lots of pictures)

Hope that everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. I had to work yesterday morning at 5am, so yesterday was pretty much of a do nothing day since I was so exhausted.

Well, now it's time for the next project...decorating for Christmas. I love to decorate, but just dread pulling all the stuff out of the attic...(and packing it back up). I'm sure you all feel the same way...

Go, get inspired and imagine what you could do...
