Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the house ...
garlands were being strung for our garden birdie tree ♥
One of our family traditions is to string fruits and peanuts and "Santa button" cookies
and hang the garlands outside for the birds (and squirrels)
The garlands are a bit different every year because we use what we have.
Popcorn * Cranberries* Dates* Figs* Apple slices* tangerine * oranges* Peanuts in their shell*
strung outside
to be enjoyed
tiny little "Santa button" cookies are always added
something for everyone to enjoy
fresh blocks of suet for the wire  baskets
and feeders filled
we were thrilled to have 3 Blue Jays in our garden this afternoon
so they will be happy to find lots of peanuts in their shell as part of the garland
and strands of Cheerios ... I love these
and they are perfect for stringing with little ones :-)
Merry Christmas feathered friends ♥
~all creatures great and small~
