An afternoon...

...of happy

I'm nursing a nasty cold & trying my best to preserve my voice so I don't completely lose it or worse-develop that nasty bronchitis I seem to get every year. 
I was nervous & excited when I got my postcard package from today. Can I tell you I died! Holy cow when I read these cards are museum quality-they REALLY are! I can only show you a smidgen of one cause I don't want to spoil any surprises for any fellow postcard swappers! I'm tickled pink and I can't wait to share them with friends. I want to order more!
I've been doing something different & fun {at least for me it is!} over on IG~I'm doing a backyard series and sharing snippets of life because I realized I've got quite a bit going on back there-
I spend a LOT of time in my back yard. It's my oasis.
Speaking of life in my back yard...

...this is one of our regular visitors. I was super relieved that what I thought was dust in the lens from the hike we did a few weekends ago is actually a misty rain. My big girl camera certainly came through for me!
I wish I could stay longer, but I need to go put on my jammies and go park myself on the couch-I feel cruddy.
Happy (backyard) Snapping!


  1. Gorgeous shots! Feel better soon :)

  2. I'll have to give Moo a try (exploring different printers). And your backyard feather friend tops the blah robins that predominantly inhibit the feeder outside my back door.

    Hope you are feeling better soon - that cup warmth with a pinch of chocolate should help!

  3. I'm so glad I got to see this fellow up close and personal. I love looking at the feathers and the face... Oh, boy, such a beauty! I'm going to get started over at, too. Can't wait to participate.

  4. spectacular capture of the nice you have that going on in your backyard. I love moo...they did my business cards and I was so pleased with them. Maybe you and I will swap postcards since I am signed up too!!

  5. hi kelly,
    my backyard is my sanctuary too...and my back deck is my favorite room in my house! the hawk is amazing...we have them too, but i don't like when they eat my bunnies.
    thanks for your lovely comments on my angel wings CAN paint, if you just try...i promise.
    i hope you are feeling better by now...i am sending healing vibes your way.

  6. Love your feathered friend visitor! Be well. I have joined the LYA postcard swap, and I am popping in on other participants.

    Hope you'll stop by for a visit.

    Aloha from Vicki

  7. I got my Moo Postcards on Friday there and have posted them off to Kat already :) So looking forward to the swap!
