I've gotten a little behind in posting my ICADs for the past week. I finally finished up the seaside paper bag books I was making for my mother and a friend, and am trying to take photos (or rather, get my husband to take photos) of some Somerset Studio back issues that I will be selling in one of my Etsy shops. I'll be sure to let you know when they are ready to be sold, in case you are interested.
Also had to deal with a dead mouse in the kitchen and sadly, a dead egg in my front yard, which was the inspiration for the August 16 ICAD. I always cry when I find dead animals and I feel sorry for road kill. What can I say? I am a true softie.
The poor little egg was cracked, and I could see the dead baby bird inside. We've been having some storms lately, and it must have blown out of a nearby nest. Hubby and I buried it in the front yard.

And their baby died."
