The Pheasant is no more.....

No, it's not what you think! We have not served poor pheasant in an elegant dish under glass! The little dickens escaped:>) I went out last night to take care of the chickens and the pheasant had picked his shackles apart (I had his leg tethered with twine to an inside part of the coop so he could move around, get to his food and water and not fly out when I opened the door....that didn't work so well!) and flew over my head into the neighbors evergreen tree. Very pretty, like the Christmas trees you see decorated with, er, pheasant feathers, but with the bird attached. So at least I dont have to fret about that anymore. I hope Uncle wont be cranky but it was an accident:>) I also wanted to ask if anyone has seen this magazine....
What a great idea! I found this at JoAnne Fabrics last night and it's great! A lifestyle magazine with a Christian perspective. Decorating,
As well as baking, a two month bible reading calender, articles by Dobson, Gary Smalley and Joyce Meyer and just all kinds of beautiful eye candy and wonderful articles. You can find out more about it here. I have missed Karlas what do you love about your holiday home party. I did get to visit quite a few homes but no time to post. I will have a bit more time this weekend and hopefully next week to show a little bit more of my home and, of course my advent posting. Have a wonderful weekend and a big thank you to everyone who has been taking the time in this busy season to continue to share their life and home through their blogs:>)
