I took this photo by a favorite spot nearby that I like to walk around to get my exercise and relax. There's all sorts of trees, bushes, flowers, birds, weeds, etc... I find it so beautiful.
Today I rode my bike there and got a lot of photos for the photo album, but this is the one I wanted to share. Of course, there's orange in it (my fav color! ), so that caught my eye, but I love the way the berries have the orange "flower" around them. I also love the way nature "plays" with colors, and puts some colors together that you would never have thought of yourself!
Giles and Baranof went shopping with DH and I to Walmart yesterday. In one of the Xmas themed aisles, we came across a FOOT LONG SNICKERS BAR! Giles and Bearanof said they didn't like Snickers, but they agreed to have their photo taken on it.
At the same Walmart, Giles and Baranof spotted a wooden Santa figure and thought he may have been another LV, so they asked to have their photo taken with him.
Oh, and despite the box being tightly taped with a lot of tape, it looked beat up and had this letter in it from the PO:
It says that: "The enclosed material was discovered loose in the mail and has apparently become separated from its packaging. If you feel the entire contents of your package has not been recovered, you may request a parcel search...."
I highly doubt that there was ANYTHING missing from that package, due to the ton of items in there, but I thought I'd let you know.
MY PACKAGE CAME TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was SO worth the wait! Here is what the letters stood for, and then I'll post the photos:
B-for a floral BAG A-a sweet little girl named ANNIE R-RAINBOW suncatcher B-BARREL key necklace (The key is from an antique shop in St. Paul, and the pendant from a shop in Minneapolis.) A-for ANTENNAE necklace (on the ladybug) R-RINGS for the ears A-A fun polka dot pocketbook
AND A TOOOOON OF EXTRAS:
Oh, and the inside of the beautiful tote:
THANK YOU, GIGGLYGIRL, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Giles arrived just minutes ago! Here he is with the other giraffes in our house, and they are making him feel right at home! The larger giraffe stuffie is mine, and her name is Lucky. The smaller, wooden giraffe is DH's and I don't think he has a name.
I had to take off Giles' hat and scarf, as it's close to 70 degrees here! He's kinda wondering if he ever left Florida, if it were not for the autumn leaves he's seeing out the window here.
phoenixfiredesigns was generous enough to send me a very beautiful and tropical looking ankle bracelet, which Giles was kind enough to model for me in the photo...even though he is a boy.
