My very own pelican!

Since moving to Florida earlier this year, I have really enjoyed seeing all the different types of birds that are here.  Especially the pelicans!  Everytime I see one, I say to whomever is with me, or to myself,  "ooooohh, look at the pelican!"  Love to watch them dive into the water for fish.

When we moved here, I mentioned to John that I really wanted our home to reflect a seashore-y, nautical feel.  I thought it would be neat to have a fun mailbox made of dock pilings.   We had an opportunity to pick up some pilings this past weekend and this is what we came up with.

And, here's a closeup of my pelican!  Isn't he just adorable???

Ok, so this is what I've been doing instead of making cards.
Gotta get back to the cards.   Will share some soon.  Promise.
Thanks for peeking!
