One man's trash is my treasure!

My husband,Justin, has a job where he meets all kinds of people. He installs fiberglass pools and some of his clients include Nascar drivers, federal agents, TV personalities, sport figures, etc. You would not believe the things that people get rid of and Justin is there to bring them home. He has brought home pool furniture, antiques, trees, flowers, shrubs, etc. Yesterday he came home with this.............
 There's a chest of drawers that goes with this dresser. He'll bring that home later. Aren't these roosters adorable?

Tuesday was my youngest grandson's, Sloan, 11th birthday. We had his party Sunday.
Della was her usual cute self....
 Doesn't she look like her Aunt Micki?
I've been saving my yarn scraps as I cross-stitch the afghan blocks...
 ...and this is what I did with them. I placed them in an onion bag and hung it in a tree for the birds to use in their nests.
Have a great weekend!
