Just see who's looking after my Distress Markers:
How adorable is this angel. Ted came to live with me yesterday having been created by my super talented step-daughter Paula. If you zoom in you can see the perfect hand stitching. I love this little bear and I love Paula too. Thank you.
So, who is your little pal this week. Perhaps someone new has come to live with you and care for your craft goodies. Do share your pal's picture with us this week.

My DH nipped out yesterday to his daughter's and found this on our path when he came home:
I'm not 100% sure what bird it is, but think it's either a coal tit or a marsh tit. We both knew it was poorly otherwise it would have tried to fly off. It had either flown into something or was old because there wasn't a mark on it.
He turned a big plant pot on its side and placed the bird in it together with some special seed mix, and a little shallow dish of water just to the side. I kept an eye on everything whilst cooking dinner, but sadly the little bird came out, turned round and then slipped away. I was heart broken and rushed out to it.
Today I will bury it along with a few flowers. So sad, but that's life as they say.
I hope your little pals are more energetic this week. Please do join in and share them with us.

This little fella has been singing the dawn chorus at 6am together with Mr Blackie. Not a very nice duet I might add. However, on Saturday he decided to jump out of the pond and have a little hop around the garden whilst it was pouring down.
These photos caught him in front of the greenhouse which is right under my craft room window.
What have you caught on camera this week? Do leave a comment with a link back to your post. I would love to see.
