The snowflakes are cut with Penny Black Snowflake Trio, the pine branch border and the pine branch sprigs are both Impression Obsession, the mold is made with hot glue and a custom silicone mold, everything else is from my stash.
Thought I would share a few photos from our stop at Lake Simcoe. We were quite disappointed because it turns out that pretty much the entire shoreline is taken up by private home owners, leaving no areas for tourists or even locals to get up to the water. No public fishing docks, swimming holes, or trails to walk. There was a park you had to pay to enter, but for a quick walk along the beach it's just not worth the $40!
We did find this one little marina, but even there, we felt like we were trespassing. It sure was beautiful though and the weather could not have been more perfect. Great place to live, but you wouldn't want to visit. lol
And back on the home front, I've seen my first baby Chickadee. Oh my gosh, this little guy was so freaking tiny! CUTE!!
MR BAGGINS says hello from the railing!
Say hello to MADONNA everyone! Why Madonna for a name, well would you just look at that tail. Tell me that's not a runway, show-offy, boa-ish, vogue kind of tail! Sounds like Madonna to me.
Guess what JUNIOR has discovered? Plants are yummy! Oh yes, that's what he's eyeballing above him in this photo. If the food bowl is empty, he proceeds directly to the planter! Little bugger! lol
And last but not least, the very bizarre looking after dinner shot.
That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.
