WoOhOo . . . I got my January YoE goodies . . .

I got my package today! My swap partner Robin L. sent me some fun goodies!




WoOhOo! I love this one. A ribbon Pinecone!
Can you guess why? It's HALLOWEEN colors folks! Yeah baby!
Robin says that this is the first time she's done ribbon work like this. I never would have guessed. It's awesome!


Some goodies to enjoy! a hand sewn zipper fabric bag, some cute magnets, a handmade blue sled ornie, a golden pinecone pendant/mini ornie and a package of Faerie and enchanted buttons! I've never seen these and they're cute!
Thank you so much Robin L. I love everything. I loved having you as a partner!


On a side note- I did my part in feeding the birdys this month!


I sliced some oranges and tied them up to the branches! I haven't seen any birds stop by so I wonder if it's the wrong treat for the wrong birds? Hmmm!

I also crumbled up some bread and scattered them around the trees in our side front yard. They came and ate those up right away- I wasn't fast enough to get a snapshot. But I did my part and they were happy! I'm doing more bread crumbs tomorrow too!

Stay Warm!

Be Enchanted!

I used this tutorial...

It's pretty straight forward but fiddly with the small pieces of ribbon.

That's a nice thing to do for our feathered friends.
