SPRING TIDINGS SWAP, GOODBYE TIGER AND MY BROKEN ARCH

I recently particpated in a spring swap put on by Amy of Bumble Bee Lane. My partner was Kim of Blackberry Crows Prims. Here is what she sent.
There was sunflower seeds inside the cute little bag, bird on a bedspring, bunny, carrots and the towel underneath, the cute little basket with an egg, the adorable bumble bee and the picture of birds. I loved everything. Thanks so much Kim. Down below is what I sent Kim.Thanks Amy for putting on another great swap. In other news, last Friday was a very sad day for us. Our cat Tiger became very ill. He was very old. We think he was maybe around 20. We had to make the decision of having him put to sleep. He was loved by all, lived a long life and will be missed alot.One last piece of news to share is about my broken arch. Last year we noticed it was getting too shady for the flowers so we decided to have some of the branches cut on our oak tree. A couple of weeks ago a friend came and cut the branches. When they fell down they sort of bounced sideways and caught the arch and this is what it looks like now. So my husband said he planned on making me a new one anyways so we will see what he comes up with. I will keep you posted. Might be awhile though, since we still have snow here.

Hello Becky. Sorry for your loss. Sening Payers your way.
You received some wonderful swap treasures.
Love the flowers that you made. Adorable.
My Sister a nd her friend took a ride to The Blue Awning last week. I had to work. She came back with a few treasures made of barn wood. A tall chair made out of scrap wood and fence, a tall birdhouse and a box made out of barn wood. Did you by chance make these items? She wants to go back there. She said it was a wonderful little shop.
Take Care!
