Take care and keep laughing!

Make Me a Willow Cabin Valentine Postcard
Make Me a Willow Cabin Valentine Postcard

Make Me a Willow Cabin was created some time ago but I don’t think I’ve ever sold it as a greeting card or postcard or on anything, which is a shame. I’m rather fond of it.

‘Make me a willow cabin…,’ declares Viola to Olivia in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Viola, disguised as Cesario, has been sent by Orsino to declare his love for Olivia. Viola, however, chooses to give the message in her own way, telling Olivia that if he, Cesario, were in love with her, he would go much further than simply send a go-between.

What can I say? I’m exhausted. The internet connection is so bad that I’ve decided to give up making the immense effort needed to simply ‘like’ blog posts or do anything much except prepare a post or two and reblog on First Night History and Rogues & Vagabonds. Ever heard of the expression ‘getting blood out of stone’? The good news is that the next bandwidth month starts on 8th February so expect a flurry of activity! There will be no flurry, mind you, if all this is the fault of the service provider and continues beyond the 8th. My thoughts are unprintable.

Meanwhile—

Someone has bought three cushion covers with The Swan Also Rises design. Occasionally life is good in the middle of technical despair!

What does a girl, a plate of food, and a handwritten French document from 2 Lil’ Owls have in common? Nothing. Except all these elements have been combined, believe it or not, to create this piece. It’s astonishing what different shapes and colours can do when blended together. Throw in three different textural backgrounds, also from 2 Lil’ Owls and bought as a bundle from Design Cuts, and a beautiful swan from The Graphics Fairy and you have The Swan Also Rises. Yes, the title tickled me when I thought of it!

Any followers who have visited my new blog, First Night History, will doubtless have known that sooner or later I would create a piece that used the handwritten header image for the blog, which I found on Wikimedia.

And so I have! The mallards, swan, and the butterflies hovering around some flowers, are all from The Graphics Fairy.

Enjoy! And let’s protect all our birds, particularly the eggs and nests of such as English robins and starlings since Natural England has proposed that their destruction be allowed without special licence. See Tom Pride’s blog post listed below.
