In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

A very special day

 Two special events in one day!
My niece had a birthday party last night.  Instead of getting gifts for herself, she asked her friends to bring donations for our Humane Society.  They made such a haul, that the Humane Society got a wheel barrow out, and we also carried some stuff as well.
 They completely filled up this table with donations.
As a special surprise, the humane society gave my niece a gift.
 And some yummy cupcakes!
But the best part was they let her and her friend play with some kittens, and name them!  
Meet Simba and Nala.
They also let them take a dog out and play with it.
An extra special day for an extra special kid!  I hope this idea catches on.

I spent the rest of the day at Groovy Girl Yarn.  She is having a Christmas open house today and tomorrow.  Here is the lobby full of hand made items for sale.
cupcake pincushions...
an owl ornament, which could also be used as a pincushion.
 crocheted ornaments
 Christmas pillows

lip balm made by the bee lady from Hilltop farm! 
$4.00 a tube, natural ingredients, peppermint and lavender flavor.
There's a whole lot more hand made items for sale. Great stocking stuffers and gift ideas.  Stop by Sunday between 11 - 6.

What are you doing up there?
Get down from that snowflake!
jeeeesh - goodnight everybody....
