Odds and Ends

I finished another birthday block today! M wanted animal blocks. My first thought was an owl as she saved an owl years ago that she found on the side of the road. Luckily I didn't do it as a few other people did. Last spring though she had a wild turkey in her back yard looking at itself in her sliding door! So a I thought she needed a turkey!

And here is a pic from our drive up north when we took Emily to school. "How do you make water come out of a rock?". Well hook it up to a water fountain of course!


I also never showed you a few treasures I picked up on our trip to Oklahoma, Nebraska and Iowa this summer. On the way down to Oklahoma we stopped in Missouri where I found a store that had a bunch of Jim Shore figurines at 50% off! I picked up a these 3! I had been wanting that main house and bridge and never got it, then they became harder to find. Well now I have them!

What a great turkey. We have wild ones in our woods and it's always fun to see them in their natural environment.

Love your Jim Shore house. Here in Australia I have mainly seen the Father Christmas & Angels range, we seem to only get the Christmas range imported to Australia. I have approx 6 Father Christmas ~ I can't resist buying one each Christmas!

The covered bridge would be a good one for me since I have such a love of them. Have never seen that piece before.
Your turkey block is a very good idea for your friend. And I like it because it is prim style.
