Did you take that picture of the birdie?! That is the CUTEST thing I have ever seen! It's just chilling in there getting splashed! Haha :) I agree with like everything you said LOL.

All the best,

Wow, reading your list made me happy. Great idea, great photos and I am so happy to have found another blogging Marsha with such similiar interests.

Forgot to ask...what is fried silver queen corn?

Marsha's Mpressions said...

To answer Allison question, yes, I took the photo of the sparrow taking a bath. The fountain is right outside my bedroom window and I was so excited that day to catch the little birdie in one of her most privite moments (ha!) and enjoying herself so much!

To Marsha (other one's) question about fried corn. Silver Queen is a type of white corn with a sweet taste. It's one of my favorite types of corn. Fried fresh corn is a southern thing, for sure. Marsha, you gave me an idea. I'll have to do a post on frying corn when it come in season.

Mornin'! If I made a list it would probably be the same! Maybe in a little different order! But it would be hard to pick! Thanks for sharing! Lauralu:)

Hi Marsha!
It's so nice to meet you! I'm so glad you found me because I have found a new blog to follow...yours!
Your "place" is so beautiful, so warm and welcoming. I could have just stayed for hours.
Your photos are very beautiful and your words are so inspiring.
I loved this post. What a great idea to stop our busy lives and be aware of the many celebrations there are around us!!!
You have certainly inspired someone today and that someone was ME!
I'll be back soon,
everything vintage

Lovely photo of little birdie at her toilette.

Thank you for your kind comments.
