For The Birds….Hearts…and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 009 Another piece of wonderful yard art from my friend Loretta…the birds will be dinning in style  at our house now.   The glass is so pretty and I love the chicken feeder attached in the middle.  As soon as the honeysuckle grows back it will be the perfect backdrop!378971_2416495576210_1365981901_31932925_1803799848_n

 

Then she has a couple more to tempt me……love the blue,386012_2416499536309_1365981901_31932930_2107752760_n  and look at this one made from an outdoor light fixture….she is amazing!  We are all hunting glass for her because we don’t want her to run out :-)!!!!!

I spotted a cute Valentine project on Pinterest and I was talking to a friend about having to cut out  tons of hearts…she says 013“I have a tool for you!” ….and zip, zap, bam tons of hearts cut!!  Shut the back door.  How have I missed these things?!  Guess me avoiding getting in to scrapbooking probably has something to do with it.  She has at least 20 other types of cutters…now the trading begins.  We are going to be trading tools for quilty things!

2011 has been one fast year and one good year for our family.  We have much to be grateful for, which was my258112622363333364_5c4a6zvQ_b word for the year.   I thank Kelly for that!!  So bring on 2012 …. I know there will be ups and downs, but with our wonderful family and great friends we can handle anything.   From our family to yours HAPPY NEW YEAR blogland.

That cutter is intriguing. What is it called? I need one!

Darlene said...

Are those hearts paper or fabric? I'm intrigued! I see lots of trading in your future, too. LOL

Happy New Year to you and yours!

Allie said...

Oh wow those are gorgeous - Loretta does beautiful work!

I think you need one of those Go cutters, girl, although what your friend has seems to work great. Is there fusible on the back?

I hope you have a wonderful New Year, Cheryl!

Such lovely bird feeders. I am looking for a bird bath. Though at present the birds seem pretty happy with the swimming pool :) I wish I had some cutting tools. Piles of shapes look so wonderful. I love all your hearts.

So great that you and Darlene are carrying on the Christmas Through the Year project that Allie started. Bless your hearts. I'll be there again. Even though I didn't meet every months' goals, I met some and thoroughly enjoyed it. Know your followers will, too. Here we go! Happy 2012...
