Let me start at the beginning....yesterday afternoon three customers were in the store...one was downstairs with me and two other upstairs - a gentleman came down and told me he could hear something making noise in the attic...????????WHAT!!! - like something maybe "furry" !! So BRAVELY I go upstairs and Amy (another customer) tells me she heard it too (in the Attic Studio) and thought it might be a bird. I open the door - peeked - (I am not very good with this issue at all) and don't see anything...Amy says "let me look" and she spies a bird...at the tiny attic window and VOLUNTEERS to try and capture the poor thing. Getting an old hat box from the Make-Do Room she proceeds up the steps while Abby (her daughter) and I stay on the second floor with the door to the attic closed....(hey if she needed a "quick" escape I would have opened it)! After about 20 minutes.....this is what happened -
Amy with a captured sweet little bird in the hat box ready to go out the back door - Abby so proud of her MOM - look at that smile!
READY - SET - GO !!
He wouldn't fly away....so frightened - so alittle shake of the box and ....
....off he went into the "wild blue yonder" !!!
On a sweeter note.....the "ARE THERE FAIRIES AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR GARDEN" booklets are back in stock...
