The Three Muses "Bye bye blackbird"


Here is my entry for this week's challenge over at the Three Muses.
The main image and border are from Land of Nod Studio.

  1. I do love what you have done here. The really interesting thing to me though, is that this morning on my dictionary.com the phrase-word was "land of nod" That was once. Then I went to Wrightstuff's blog and she referred to her mother's stories taking her to the "land of nod" and now it is your turn with y our main border being from "land of nod." Very odd, this "nod" thing is indeed!

  13. Wonderful piece of art!! My thought fly to Alice in Wonderland, when I look at your work. In Poland we have very similar sentence, which is: "better a sparrow in a hand, than a pigeon on the roof" :)

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
