Wild Turkeys on Parade!

As we were sitting out on the balcony this morning enjoying a cup of coffee, we heard rustling below.  Being very mindful of our wildflower seedlings, Michael looked over the railing to see the culprit--a wild turkey scratching for a morning grub.  As Michael raced to the door to chase him away, we discovered that there was more than just a turkey; in fact, there was at least 10 of them and they were more interested in the female turkeys who were scratching in the dirt just east of the creek bed.  I turned back to the apartment and grabbed my camera.

They were actually in parade formation and seemed to be marching in time to music that we could not hear.  It was fascinating to watch, as one would turn to the left; the others would follow-about face; forward march.  As I would call out, "Gobble, gobble" they would respond in perfect unity, "gobble, gobble" almost like bugles blowing.  Needless to say, we had to reheat our morning coffee once we got back upstairs.  Ah, spring is definitely in the air, in the Wood's Secret Garden!

Custom Doll Trunk with Doll and tons of clothes and accessories now available!

This took forever!  After transforming the 24 inch Bratz Dolls into "Just K.I.D.S" as part of the campaign to help rescue kids trapped in the sex trafficking industry, I got the crazy idea to convert a vintage suitcase into a doll trunk.  After making the inside compartments and decoupaging and hand painting the entire outside of the suitcase (both front and back) the set is now complete and up for auction on Ebay.

Leave a comment if you want to bid on this amazing doll trunk.  You even get to pick which doll you want to be included.

Just a few more a working shower!

As promised, the following are some "after" pictures.  We have moved everything in and organized most of our things.  We still have several all day projects, like replacing the diverter valve and the washers in the shower.  Currently no functioning shower; but, I can always take a bath until we can get this done.  Yuck!

No time to write.  Just enough time to post a few pictures:

and clearly - Monkey is back to normal!
