Some good things have been happening for me recently through my photography – which is really good as life was a bit stressful towards the end of last year, so it is reassuring to be moving on from all that.
I sent a small gift to a new internet friend before Christmas, and in return this happened on a beach in Florida – what a great idea, I was very chuffed! Thank you Patsye, it made my day!
Some of you might know I like owls, and have a small collection of owl figures…..not crass cutesy ones, but carefully chosen, well designed and with character – I might share some images when I run out of other things to post! They live in a glass cabinet and on a bookshelf where I can enjoy them as I pass by. My daughter also finds good looking owls on greeting or post cards wherever she might be, and sends them for no particular reason – it is always a thrill to find one in my mailbox.
This is a Boobook owl, painted in watercolour, pen and ink between 1790-1800, and now part of the National Gallery collections. His feathers look so real!
This is another favourite one from a couple of years ago. It is a Merry-go-Round card, designed to be reused by replacing the message insert and sending another time. I like it too much to lose it in that way.
