You were correct about me and Dawn. She is the one that got me started blogging. I had followed her for several months and then in Dec. she challenged us non-bloggers to take the plunge. It has opened up a whole new world for me as one blog leads to another. My head is swimming. I will be glad when the newness wears off and things settle into a routine of creativity. Can't wait to make some bird nests.
Thanks, Candy

You are the second person to ask me that. I have tried to research but have not found where I came across that adorable pic. I think I found it on the web somewhere but just not sure. You are welcome to use it and if I ever figure out where it came from I will let you know.

After I sent you the first link I found out a little more. The painter's name is ARTHUR HOPKINS. Try this: GOOGLE Arthur Hopkins then click on a page with all different sizes of this picture should appear. Hope this works for you.
