Dearest Theresa,
What a sweet little wren♡♡♡ As I live far away in Japan, I think I should leave the chance to your other friends.
Oh, I would love to if I live in America, as I think it is nice in hubby's room.
I smiled to read "No, I won't be singing to you if you win it." I LOVE to sing and hear others sing, p;)
Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Oh, I so would love this if I am allowed to enter...wrens are my favorite bird...Carolina wrens for sure. I love their big happy song and their friendliness. We always had them at home...we would be sitting in the swing on the front porch and one would land and sit on the chain above our head...and one finally got till it would sit on my dad's foot when he was resting. I could go on and on about them.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Please place my name in for this lovely little Wren. It was actually 31 years ago this past August, when we moved into our current home, that I watched a wee little Wren hop along the path of our patio doors. I had never seen one before and it was love at first sight and it took me into the world of loving birds. They stay all winter in a little bird house in the alcove of our front door and many a baby Wren has been born there over the years as well~
