A Thankful Friday Thank You

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.
