new life

Welcome to the world little Ella Jane. I'm so happy to be your aunt! May you always find joy in the seemingly little things in life, but which we all know to be true wonders. Ella was born to my sister and her husband only about an hour ago and she's their second child with the wonderful Benson being the first. If they give me permission I'll post pics of all four of them ASAP!

I love vintage pictures like this one. My mother used to have a birthday calendar full of exactly these prints hanging in the bathroom (the dutch just love to remember about upcoming birthdays when getting down to 'business') and I would flip through it over and over again, never being able to decide which one was my favourite. Here is another on I really really love from that era.

I try to draw sometimes.... but somehow it never turns out even remotely as lovely and delicate as these. I was drawing earlier tonight in fact. I'll show you what I managed to create.

Oh yes. Feathered and watching you.

congrats to the happy parents and to you, an Aunt again. Can't wait to see the pictures
That's a sweet bird you drew. If I tried to draw that it would look like a stic bird
Congrats again

Congratulations Aunt!

About the bird drawing... I am impressed with that branch of wood. It must sound somewhat funny when you draw a bird and someone comments on the branch, but you've managed to create an impressive 3D effect with the branch and its leaves. Suppose it must have taken you a while, sketching.
