By the way, a couple of the pine cones have ended up on the floor and I have mistaken them for something else.
This is the light on our back porch...In the morning when you walk out, if you don't know it is there, that bird will give you quite a scare when it flies out of that nest! I don't have it in me to take it down, Last year we had one on the front porch and in time we saw the baby bird. It was fun to see the kids faces when it finally did hatch.
And finally, this is a sweatshirt I bought for 50 cents at the thrift store. I managed to get ink on it (not such a big deal) but, not knowing it was there I set the shirt on my bed. The ink ended up on my Crate and Barrel comforter (now that was a big deal). I don't have a picture of that stain because I wasn't thinking about blogging until...the stain came out!!!
This is a picture of the same shirt in the same spot where the ink stain was. The ink was from our printer cartridge. I thought I was going to have to buy a new comforter but my dad gave me a bottle of graffiti remover that is used to get ink off many surfaces. I sprayed it on and let it soak over night, threw it in the washer in the morning and voila...no stain! I am easily amused. I know I need to get out more. But don't laugh at me, it is important to be able to get stains out
