Hello! How are you? Have you switched gears from Fall/Thanksgiving to Christmas yet? I think I'll be putting a little Christmas Spirit around the house today. Hopefully I can get my tree up, can't wait for someone to get up so we can get it!
Today I'm sharing my nature collection and joining the fun at Mockingbird Hill Cottage for Favorite Thing Saturday. This has become a favorite of mine, I hope you'll check it out and join in the fun!Here is a shelf that I've dedicated to my collection. It's just things I've collected over the years...a rock here, a bird feather there. Once while on vacation we visited a zoo and I followed the Avairy guy around as he fed the exotic birds. Woo-hoo! You should have seen my excitement as he brought out feathers for me! Later in the day he found me and gave me a penguin feather! That was so sweet of him, I've always remembered his kindness. Another time I got an ostrich feather from a man who had a children's petting event at a school I was working at! Their feathers are surprisingly beautiful.
I have loved and collected rocks since I was a child. I have a few rocks from Nova Scotia that my sister brought me. Did you know there are beautiful rocks there? I didn't! They are pink and blue! Some rocks were gifts from a rock hound I knew. He would bring me beautiful rocks from the digs he went on. The snake skin is from the ball python my son had.
There is also a couple of arrowheads, a fossil and a civil war bullet in the mix. I hope you've enjoyed this little viewing of my nature shelf! What are some of your favorite things?
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful Saturday!
