Woodland Hills Alpaca Bird Nester giveaway!

I think this little "Alpaca Bird Nester" from Woodland Hills Alpacas is just the cutest thing! I was just watching the birds in my yard peck and scratch around and noticed all the winter birds that would be staying here through cold weather. I am probably attributing my human frailties to birds, but I imagine a winter bird would be so happy to have a soft alpaca nest to hunker down in! 

Woodland Hills Alpacas is just brimming with pages and pages of colorful fiber and yarn to indulge in lately! I hope you take the time to treat yourself to some before the Holiday rush is in full swing.
