I recently completed the jewelry for my stepdaughter's bridesmaids:
I need to get some jewelry ready for my dress for that wedding coming up in only three weeks! Yikes!!
But before that, my best friend's daughter is getting married! (How is that possible that I am old enough for this to be happening!?!?!) Her wedding is next week. The dress I'm wearing to her wedding has a beautiful print (bohemian? Indian? I'm not really sure what you'd call it!!)
I was inspired to create a peyote cuff to match the pattern.
As referenced in the title of this post, I've also been doing quite a bit of birding lately as well. In trying to make exercising a priority, I've been heading out to our local trails nearly every morning and the birding has been sensational! Although one my recent favorites was from the farm of this ridiculously adorable killdeer chick!!! CAN YOU EVEN STAND IT!! Those fuzzy tail feathers!
There is another nest on the farm about to hatch too! I didn't even realize I was coming upon the nest and unwittingly came upon a very angry killdeer adult!
And it seems I have a knack for stumbling upon active nests...I became a little fearful of this osprey mama who started dive bombing me even though i was several hundred feet away!!!
Here are some more, gentler birds I've seen over the last few weeks!
Happy Father's Day!
