This little church charm is over 50 years old. It was my grandmothers. It was one of many charms that dangled from the bracelet on her wrist. I always liked looking at the charms but this one was my favorite. If you look below the church steeple you can see a little magnifying glass . When you look through there, you will see a written prayer. The charm is only 3/4 of an inch high. I was always so fascinated as to how the prayer could fit in such a small space. :)
The Muscovy Duck mother is trying to keep an eye on her seven ducklings as they race here and there exploring the territory.
This little one runs ahead as fast as its little feet can carry him. He reminded me of a little child when they are just learning to walk. He would run so fast that he would lose his balance and plop down on his bottom. In a blink of an eye, he was back up running again.
As his momma keeps an eye on him, he is keeping an eye on me. I am kneeling down with my camera trying to get an eye level view and hoping that Momma duck doesn't notice me and come charging at me!
One of my favorite things are butterflies. It doesn't matter what kind of butterfly it is. I love to see them flitting and fluttering through the air and lighting on flowers along the way. This is why I named my blog Precious Butterflies. :)
