Another Gift In The Mail

I went to my mailbox this morning and another giveaway gift was waiting on me. This one is from The Artful Life. If you get a chance go by and check out Tina's Etsy store. I love my necklace! My family often laughs at me because I have a tendency to wear a little to much jewelery. I am sure their must be some gypsy blood somewhere in the tree. LOL. I do have a little of that Native American blood and they also seemed to love adornment, so maybe that is where it comes from. I also have a thing for leather moccasins which I have worn all winter. I exchanged them a few days ago for flip flops. My shoes of choice for the summer! After receiving my gift, it seemed as if the day wanted to be about birds. I walked down to the beach and watched the seagulls and the shorebirds run in and out of the surf. I come home and these beautiful pigeons were in the yard. I have always heard that the male is the most colorful, so I am thinking the one with the touch of color on his neck must be the male. They did not mind posing for the camera at all. Birds are everywhere. I guess they are as happy as we are for a little warmer weather.

That is a great necklace Kim, I love the combination of bird items.

Speaking of birds, that is a lot of birds in your pics
LOL. Our birds are starting to come back and it is so wonderful to hear them singing early in the morning. Yep, Spring is coming!

pigeons have been a problem in our town in the past. But after seeing the beautiy in these pics I don't think I'll ever look at another pigeon with distates again. That male is rather stunning.

Love the birds.The robins are back here now. But they had a nasty surprize the other day when the weather turned to snow (8") and the temps went from 60 to the twenties. I wanted to make them little coats...LOL But I made sure the feeders and water were full. Florida sounds pretty nice right now. Sharon
