whisper, bluebird, into my ear


Today I received a rather sweet email inquiring about the photo I used for my "contact" button. The reader wanted to know where she could find the entire post dedicated to that outfit. However, when I took those photos back in April, I never liked them enough to share in a post. Today's email, though, made me rethink that decision.

I was playing around in a picture-editing program and stumbled upon this artsy effect. It instantly reminded me of the illustrations I loved so in the chapter books I read during elementary school. This effect paired with the hopeful colors of spring have got me daydreaming about warm weather, green grass, and cat naps in the sun.

I love it, Indy! The pictures really do look like the illustrations from the wonderful books of my girlhood. You've got a great eye for color and texture.

You look great as an illustration...it fits somehow. :) Sometimes I think that it would be great if all of like could be illustrated like a book. Cartoons are so much simpler.
