Ivy league

I was wondering through the Teleflora website, trying to find myself a little treat, when I came across this splendid ivy basket. Look at that cute little bird's nest! Do we all want this? of course! Husbands and boyfriends, take note.

Now Seeking Sponsors

I tried adding google adsense to my blog this morning, but the pictures were terrifying and not at all lovely. So, I decided it would be better to allow my readers to become sponsors and submit their own beautiful ads. In honor of this new endeavor, the first 5 readers that respond to this post will be given free advertising for two weeks. Yay!! All you have to do is leave a comment. I will email you the information and you can get your image to me as soon as you want. I would really like it if your ad had a bird in it somewhere, but it doesn't have to.

Update: I have five people, but only 3 ads so far. I you weren't one of the first five, but you email me an ad before they do, I will put up your ad until I get all the others in. And I might rotate you in from time to time.

my email address is in my profile!!

Bird of the Week

On Saturday, Kevin and I were out estate-selling when we noticed this very unusual bird. It was black except for some bright neon orange patches on the wings. I had never seen a bird like that, so of course I drifted into the other lane while craning my head to follow it. Luckily, Kevin yelled at me before there was an accident. Moral of the story: I don't know! I just wanted to give a little background on the Bird of the Week.

If you guys ever see any unusual birds and want to submit them just leave a comment or email me.

Summer of Love

Seriously, who isn't getting married this summer? I have so many wedding invitations on my fridge I can barely find the handle! Luckily, EtsyGreetings is having a wedding promotion right now. I can buy all the cute, creative, and original wedding cards I need in one stop, and so can you.
