Unexpected Visitor.....








We had 3 visitors ...in our side yard...one weekend. A family of three came to rest and sleep under our Oaks ...I was relaxing in our bedroom when I heard the sound outside our bedroom deck of little hooves...going up the steps...as I peeked out the curtains a fawn was investigating my deck its planters and chairs and was trying to peek into my husbands office which also leads into the bedroom deck.. his curtain was open and he was on a business call ..so he was unaware of this little guys spying on him...I did not have my camera..so I did not get that shot..he stood for a long time..looking and listening..his little tail switching back and forth just staring....it was so funny....then bored turned and went down the steps where mom and dad waited......then they all went and laid under our tree by the fence hidden buy the tall hedges we have there.. that's when I got my camera and shot the pictures ... they stayed all day.. ...I was so happy they found a safe harbour there...some people do not like the deer because they eat their plants....I love them...such sweet gentle faces they have...wonderful magical creatures!

Fantastic. I always look at deer as great omens. Something coming to you in threes?

Marlene, I'm like you: love to have the deer visiting -- the plants will grow back:)
Also I just wanted to comment that I like the name of your booth where you sell your treasures (maybe it's all moved into the Chloe and Lace store now?) But when I was deciding on a name for my business, I was trying to convey that "gently used, second hand rose, twice loved" concept but with a French twist. That's why I call it FrenchKissed past tense -- done been loved!ha!:)
