I wasn't going to post today, you know. I'm very busy. Things to do around here. But then, the sunlight was really pretty today and I remembered that I had something I've been wanting to hang in Birdie's room and just thought that if I wanted to take some pretty pictures of it that I'd better just get to it now and so here I am.
Awhile ago, my Blogland friend, Summer over at Artfulife, sent me a little surprise gift. A hundred years or so before THAT, I had left a little compliment on some of her artwork saying something to the effect that if I had two nickels to rub together I would be purchasing her "Queen of the Lovebirds" because I thought she was just dreamy. Summer remembered this apparently and decided, when cleaning ETSY house, that she would oh-so-generously bestow her upon me. Heaven knows why nobody else bought her. This is a painting full of imaginativeness worthy of fairytales. I would, in fact, love to see Summer take a go at some fairies... If they turned out anything like this ethereal lovebird queen, well they'd be gorgeous for sure.
Here she is in her new home:
I am so glad I chose to do this today. The sunlight makes that gold, just shimmer:
Summer, thank you for your sweet generosity. I'm sorry you didn't make any money off her, but she is in a good place! :-)
And, readers (ahem, all 6 or 7 of you ;-) I've decided "hundreds" may be a slight exaggeration) if you haven't already, check out Summer's shop over at ETSY. I can see you now, choosing a sweet corner of your home for some of her artwork and hoping that the light hits it just right on a day like this and it makes you smile.
