The hummingbirds haven't made an appearance yet; however, the cardinals have been attempting to eat from the new feeder I put out a couple of weeks ago. Some days they are very successful and I get to watch a hub & wife team take turns.

But, there are others who have been visiting and STEALing the bird food....

They almost break their necks hanging over the edge, leaning into the feeding and every once in a while they go flying off the edge of the porch. (I'm still trying to get a picture of that occurring)

One of my best finds @ the thrift store last week for $.50, yes, 50cents...I just love them. They have a sign on the bottom saying they are from Peru. I'm eager to poach some eggs...and I found a great little place to display them!

I bought this little shelf at HobbLobb* ;) during one of their 70% was $4, I believe. It comes in handy for one of my 'note caddies' and is a GREAT place for my car keys (which I can't find if I don't ALWAYS put them in THEIR place...I've already shared the stories about finding things in the 'freezer' that don't 'belong in the freezer', hahaha!

Have a GREAT Sunday!

Now that I'm officially retired, and once our move is behind us, I'm hoping I can engage in some stealth bargain-hunting myself. I love your "finds", even though I'm sorry to hear someone besides me endures losses in the freezer (and drawers, and closets, and garage, and ....).

We have been enjoying the hummingbirds already.
The cardinal that used to crash into our solarium hasn't been around for a long while now, maybe he is no more :(
We get black squirrels here. Do you?
Love your bargain hunting. Now I want some poached eggs.

My kids love to watch squirrels but they sure do like to snatch the food!
Good for you and your bargains!! I also love that you get them up/out right away.
Have a super week!!
