Weekend Wanderings

Unlike the poor folks out west, we had wonderful weather this weekend.
I took full advantage of it by spending the day shopping and going for a walk at one of our favorite places.
It is a bird sanctuary that cuts through fields, wooded paths and ends up at a point where we can view the pond and the ocean which is beyond the strip of sand dunes.



On the trail back, we go through more woods and by a small pond which was showing the first signs of spring.
We got to see the turtles sunning on the tufts of grass and minnows.



I didn't have any luck at the antique stores, but I did find some nice reproduction candle holders with plate backs. I found two and will figure out where to hang them. I am also working on punch projects, some I can show, so as soon as I finish them, I will post photos. And don't forget to look below and grab your free pattern and a chance to enter the contest.

Well, I don't know how big they really are. All I could see from where I stood was a lump of dark color. It is amazing what a telephoto lens can find hiding in the bushes;)

What a beautiful day and such a wonderful place to take a walk. Ooooh, I envy you having such a beautiful place to go to and clear the brain.
Your candle holders are so neat. Do you have a mirror or a mantle to hang them on either side of?
