A Bluebird

Did anyone happen to see Vicki’s post featuring a bluebird in her backyard?  She’s a really great bird-watcher, so I love looking out her back door via her blog. I fell in love with that photo so much I asked her if I could purchase a copy to have framed and hang on our wall. Being the nice person that she is, she said no, she wouldn’t take any money for it. She said I should just do it.

Look at how beautiful it looks, matted and framed!

Almost all the artwork in our house is nature photography, purchased at an art fair or photos taken by me or people I know. I am proud to say this new addition to our art collection was taken by my friend Vicki!

Artwork Packaging

Sometimes I buy things just because I love the artwork on them.

I bought these zippered pouches at Barnes & Noble recently… just because the artwork is so unique with a touch on the wild side.

I also bought these adorable mint tins for a $1.00 each because the artwork was so fabulous. These chicks are a bit fantasy mixed in with female attitude.

Does you guys ever do this – buy something just because the container or the packaging is so hard to resist?
