Photo Monday (edited)

edit: A few people have wished they had photo editing software. Well, here are a couple of free online places that I have used and really like. AND

It's almost Monday. Only another hour so I think I get a head start.
First, this Great Blue Heron. This photo was taken June 26, 2007. What I think he is doing is sunbathing. Birds do that to kill mites and lice. What's really funny is to watch them take a sand bath.


One of my most favorite snacks. Mmmmmm Only one problem though. Those messy fingers.



This is called a Dotee Doll. I'm hooked. This is my first one. Hand sewn and beaded. My first time for beading. It also has embroidered face. It's 6 inches. I have 2 more waiting for beads now. I can see give-aways in my future.

Carla, your little "Dotee" is really cute. Are you doing the swap over on Doll Street? Think I'll have to pass this time because I have a few other things on the go...

I will have to eventually make one or two though...I sure have seen a lot of them around....

Love the shot of the Heron. I have never seen one that close up. Love Dotee Doll too. Beading can be really fun.

Sandy sent me. Love the shot of the Heron. They are fantastic birds, aren't they?
I really like the Dotee doll too - looks like they'd be fun to make. If only I had some time.

As for the Cheetos - I have a cat that will happily clean my fingers for me!

Last week I never heard of dottees, and this week they are everywhere -- kinda eerie actually, LOL. I would NEVER have believed that this is your first beaded project. Well done.
