    One of the MANY great things about being my age (old) is that you get to choose and buy your own Christman presents.....it helps if your husband shares an interest in your "gifts"...lol

    Wanted to share a few pics of the six special gifts I just bought myself. I do want to mention that these gifts would not have been possible without the help of my dear friend, and fellow BYC'er Judy K. ~~Three Cedars Silkies; and of course, the breeders of the beautiful gifts : Bren G. , and the other breeder prefers to remain unnamed at this time.

    Now, let's see if I remember what Judy taught me about uploading pics...lol [​IMG]

    "Rose", the lavender pullet I bought from Bren at the Nationals in Shawnee; she won Reserve AOV. In the pic, she had just washed her face in her water bowl.

    and a third Lavender pullet from Bren

    And now~~~three very special gifts~~American Paint (the yellow spot on each is food coloring)

    Thanks rilly~~I'm thrilled with my new babies. They are, of course, a work in progress; I'll be working with Judy K. and the original breeder to improve their quality.

    I've been in love with Paints since I first saw a picture of them on Feathersite 2 yrs ago....never dreamed I'd actually have any.
