It's cold this morning with snow on the ground. I find myself missing my outside time this morning. I love drinking that first cup of coffee out on the garden bench with the breeze blowing and the birds singing. Yet I love the snow as well and the warmth of the fire inside with the family huddled close. Spring, I know, is just around the corner. And within a few months I'll be sitting on the garden bench with sketchbook in hand admiring the budding trees and plants. Until then, I will revel in the beauty of the yard all dressed in white.

So I started this shadow box. I am making it out of an old drawer. I am not, as a rule, into birds, however, these touched me somehow. I want to create something that shimmers and sparkles, yet is calming and touching all at once. We'll see where I end up with it.
