About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

  10. Howdy!! I live in the northern SF bay area and have made it to Julie's store twice: She is so sweet, as you said, and I wish I were closer to her than two hours away!! What part of Tx are you in? My hubbies dearest cousin moved to Caldwell and we're hoping to visit her sometime in the next year. And I worked in Dallas for about a year in the early 80's. It was a beautiful town, but the humidity stank!!! The bit of humidity that we get here in the Bay Area is about all I like. :-P Happy Blogaversary!!
