The Lederhosen Bird

This weird bird is a little late to the party…

Oktoberfest was celebrated in Munich between September 17 and October 3 this year!

But The Lederhosen bird is always ready to celebrate!

Did you know that lederhosen or “leather breeches” were worn as traditional garments in some regions of German-speaking countries? Formerly, they were worn for hard work but today are mostly worn as leisurewear.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! šŸ˜ƒ

And Happy Fall! The leaves are changing amazing colors and the days have been extra sunny and warm in the Pacific Northwest where I live.

I have been spending as much time as possible outdoors… before the days get colder.

Do you have a favorite season? I hope you share it with me! šŸ˜ƒ

It’s Fry Day!

I thought today would be an eggs-cellent time to share a card I created for a friend:

Chicken card for Tom Low

He was celebrating his 80th birthday!

I wanted to give him a chuckle in case he was in a “fowl” mood…

So this was my answer to the riddle:

Tom Low's bday card - riddle

You see,Ā Tom likes to sit on his porch at the lake and talk to everyone who happens to stop by.Ā  He is one of the nicest people I know!Ā  šŸ™‚

We all flocked together to help him celebrate this birthday milestone and sign his card!Ā  And eat cake…

As my friend Laura says at Create Art Everyday, it’s timeĀ for YOU toĀ shake your tail feathers!

Have a happy day!Ā  šŸ™‚
