« Look, Mom! A TOAD! | Main | Photo Gear »


Woah, you have A LOT of comments!!! I'm Tara from Australia and have only just started reading your blog a few days ago.

I enjoy reading your blog and seeing the amazing photos and cards you come up with. Thanks so much for sharing.

I just love the pictures you did of the toad, we have hundreds of frogs that hatch during the spring time and I just love hearing them sing. The first year we lived at our home I found out the pond on our property isn't spring feed so it dries up when there is no rain. I went down with a big bucket and tried to save all the frogs. My husband and new neighbors all thought I was crazy. But to me I was just saving such a wonderful animal. 14 Years later and I am still trying to take care of all the animals that come to our home. We even have a sign on our door that says " Stray Cats Welcome Here!" We have 5 cats in our home, one that was a stray that lives in my Sunporch and several strays that come for dinner, along with two racoons, two possums and anything else that is hungry including deer. But I won't change a thing, I love animals and I also love taking pictures of them when I can. Keep; up the good work!

In my next life I want to be an artist and photographer like you! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful 'nature' photos. We're out in the country too and love the many animals and birds and creepy crawlies around us. Your regular blog updates with photos are such a treat. Keep 'em coming ...! (So sorry for the loss of your dear cat.)

I would love to be the winner of your blogcandy! Every day i´m here and look at your beautiful pictures!

Hi Anna,

I enjoy viewing your blog. Thanks for offering the blog candy.

I enjoy your blog. I love your cards, of course, but also really enjoy when you post the photos of critters:) Thanks for keeping me entertained and also for offering the blog candy.

I could use some happy stuff in my mailbox. I am so upset with hubby. I had a radiator leak and he said he would put some antifreeze stuff in for me so I could get to the dealer and get it fixed. MInd you, this car is only 1 years old this month and hardly any miles-likeless that 7 thousand. SO he does, I take it in and they call me today. He had put the stuff in the power brake line! He is an automotive engineer!!! HOw can he do something so dumb. He wont tell me how much I am out-but along with his stupid speeding tickets-I am gonna kill him for sure.

YAY! I love blog candy! Have a great Memorial Weekend!! :)

I hope you have a great holiday weekend, with maybe some extra time for photos AND stamping! Thanks for sharing both with your faithful readers. :)
