Fly away birdie!

I was so happy to receive an airmail package today that had flown all the way from Australia. Inside was the linocut print I ordered from Jackie of Littlest Flower! It is so beautiful and she even provided me with some tape for framing it properly. Now, I just need to get to an IKEA for a frame (or two). Unfortunately, the nearest store is a ferry ride away. But for now I can admire it sans frame!

The photo below is a bit blue - the background paper is white and the ink a bit more turquoise. I love it!

I've been working away on Orangina a bit - not much progress to show.

I will leave you with more gratuitous Oscar shots. Sleeping in the sun - nesting in some shredded paper - and guarding the front door (very sphinx-like).

Your Oscar's such a cute! And I love that print. Jackie's site is so cute! Speaking of sites, just so you know I'm trying out typepad for a month. Let me knoww what you think ;)

Oscar must be truly sphinx-like to contain himself around all the sweet birdy-ness that flew your way! Thanks for comment on my blog ;-)

My nearest IKEA is an 80 kilometer drive and they usually don't have what I want when I get there!
Thank-you for linking me.
