birthday wishes and blue jays . . .

What a wonderful surprise in my mailbox from Paper Vernissage.  Thank you Lorraine!
I love that background stamp!
Tucked inside was this little drawing of some blue jays . . . which happens to be our school mascot.  This  will definitely find a place on my desk.  


  1. Belated birthday wishes! WOW! What a wonderful gift from Lorraine, love that painting.
    Thanks for stopping by for T-day and for the lovely comment. Monday was bright and sunny so the GDs and I had fun with the camera....trying to teach the oldest one how to use it. Yesterday it cooled off and rained off and on all day, today looks like more of the same. I wasn't ready for summer in February anyway....*grin*

  2. Ah, I know first hand how lovely Lorraine's paintings are...and she has the knack of knowing just what "fits" the person she is sending to. Like cardinals, I think of bluejays as such iconic American birds, and ones I would particularly love to see in real life some time. Like our robins and goldfinches, our jays are very different to yours.

  3. You're very welcome. I left out a lot of the branches and the snow and I'm glad that I could share it with you rather than keep it locked up in my little journal.
