Aren't these little fellas cute, just hanging around outside.
I fell in love with the little characters.
I just wish it said,
It was in the low 70's this fine morning in the CHRISTMAS season
and my holly and it's pretty RED berries is just thriving.
More berries this year than last.
I've given them more water this year...
that may be why we have so many berries.
We HAD to rake leaves so our yard would
look nice for all the kids and grandkids coming on
We were sooo thankful for the pretty day in which to do this chore...
...remembered to give the birds a nice cool drink....
When we finished, we decided to sit awhile on the
front porch swing and catch our breaths.
I went inside and made us some snack trays to enjoy
in the beautiful outside.
This one is for MR. SWEET.
He likes fresh, sliced bananas on his
banana nut bread.
I love the FLAVOR of bananas but....
not the texture.
While we enjoyed the resting....,
I started thinking about that
huge antler of Mr. Sweets.
So many bloggers are using the antlers to decorate with but I am having a hard time DECORATING with them.
Maybe because they have been in my life for 50 years...and I've never thought, for even one minute, that there was ANYthing pretty about them.
Mr. Sweet has always been a hunter.
Our shed out back has tons of them lying around.
But, THIS one is the biggest of all.
I am sure I can never use them in my decorating but
for fun, I did one little 'scape.
I'm pretty sure this LONG horn won't be used for ANYthing except knife handles for
Mr. Sweet's handmade knives...
Not EVERY popular thing at the moment is for EVERYONE..
and this one just isn't for me. :)
This is only ONE side of the animal's antlers...
Boy, he must have
BEEN A BIG ONE.
I think it was on an ELK instead of a DEER.
I am holding my breath for my
to bloom in time for
WHITE WEDNESDAY (now that antler is OFF white, ya'll)
Thanks to all the lovely hosts..
