I am a bargain hunting shopper....I used to go on day long excursions to the malls, discounts stores and flea markets. I am addicted to getting a good deal. Since moving to nowhere land I have had to adjust my shopping habits. Now, while I do frequent auctions and a few discount stores, my shopping is done online.

I also enjoy papercrafts, such as ATC's, rubberstamping, scrapbooking. I have been a real big ebay shopper, primarily purchasing a "lot" of items, generally a lot includes papers, embellishments, tools and more. Occasionally, there are mystery boxes - which can be fun but are usually disappointments.

Lately I have discovered grab bags, something I have enjoyed since I was a young child, being sold by rubberstamp suppliers and creators. What is better than buying a small bag full of unknown items. Yes, there are disappointments but there can also be lots of fun and surprises. I have become addicted to purchasing them. Over the next few posts I will share my surprises, disappointments and thoughts about the packages of stamps I have recieved.

beautiful outside

I have been falling down on the job of feeding the birds, which is a shame as there are so many pretty ones. I recieved a new feeder from dh for Christmas. It is really nice. After the birds emptied it, I brought it in to clean, as recommended and have never put it back out. Maybe I will do it this weekend.

I have seen a few birds, lately, that I have not been able to identify just yet. The doves are out in good number, this past weekend we found a nest with two eggs in it. I took photos and sent the best one off to be made into a large picture to hang on the wall. We have, also, been inundated by thousands of black birds and crows.

During the months of February and March, we came across at least half a dozen bald eagles. It is such a treat to find a pair soaring overhead.

mmmmm coffee
