Robins everywhere.....

You will probably remember that my mum loved robins and that carried through to me.At Christmas I was given lots of things with robins on.
                             Tristan, Sue and the girls got me a lovely scarf which is really soft. Its big and could be used as a wrap. I wear it a lot everyday to brighten the day...

                                              Barrie got me this little one as a stocking filler,,
                                                        He is a little box and opens up..
                                         He was from a little antique shop in York and is so sweet..
                                                   The spoon rest was from Tristan and Sue and the girls too.
                                                And this
                                   A matching mug. I love them and even though a snow scene I use everyday as I love them and  think they brighten the kitchen so.
                                                  Our boy is now framed and on the wall..
                                     There are so many friends not feeling well at the moment. I send love and you are all in my thoughts..;....  Love and hugs to all. Carol xx

I think English robins are so pretty!

GJ's portrait is lovely. I sure miss him.

Madi and Mom said...

Robins are a sure sign spring is coming or at least they used to be now it seems with our up and down weather the robins are as confused as the humans.

Mom did not print the comments in my book either...they would have been way toooooooo expensive.
Hugs Madi your bfff

Those are lovely gifts. Of the birds, we especially like the little one that fits in your hand.

In your last post, it appears you had a good time watching the cats and ducks. :)

Glad GJ is framed and on the wall. It must be nice to see him there.

The robins are delightful! And that sweet portrait of GJ will enjoy having all those birdies to watch ;-)

Lovely, thoughtful gifts to treasure;
I love them all! The robins in the snow are so precious! The scene is so inviting. And the little jeweled
robin; I'm mesmerized! It's perfectly
delightful! Barrie has lovely
taste. The robin wrap will certainly
cheer these dull winter's days.
We're so happy to see the painting
of Jasper. We miss our little man so!

Karen Jo said...

Your robins are all delightful. I think the jewelled robin box is wonderful. That's a great painting of Ginger Jasper on your wall. Thank you for the love and hugs for Bambino. He is eating more and seems to be feeling better. Right now he is trying to bury the food he didn't want to eat (he ate other food).

Robins are nice. Good luck with your collection. Pictue of the cat looks nice.

Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

Bellen said...

I like the little Robin container. That's very neat. And it's nice to see Ginger Jasper in his frame. I miss checking in with him and seeing what he is up to each day.

meowmeowmans said...

We love all of your beautiful robin items. And Angel GJ's portrait is simply beautful, just like he is, always and forever.

Thank you for purring and praying for Moosey. He seems to be feeling pretty good for now (his appetite is much better, and his energy level, too)... we're just waiting for those blood tests now.
