For the Birds
Notice the windows that surround an image from another page - that is sooo not easy to do. I know this because I have tried and failed to do it well.
Each one is perfect.
Every time I look at it I find something more that I had missed.
Art is like that. It is new every time one views it.
And yes, I would like to fly away.
If I weren't already home, which I am, and plan to stay.
Step aside Elizabeth Goudge and "The Bird in the Tree", THESE birds have taken your place in my heart.
You are now second.
Today the sun was shining in the most perfect way, reflecting all over the snow on the bushes under my front window. It made for perfect picture taking, something that does not happen often in February, in Michigan.
I found the perfect stand (on hand already) to hold the book nicely and still allow the ribbons room to do their ribbon-y thing.
Such a beautiful book.
And from such a beautiful friend, who takes what God has given her and blesses other people with it.
