Quoth the Raven, "Thank you, Dear Elaine!"...

I had a surprise package from my dear friend Elaine a few days ago...she is always sending me books and magazines (♥♥), and we had recently talked about a bird's nest she had had for a while, so I thought that's what this unexpected gift was...

WOW! ~ I couldn't believe how sweet this was! We both love ravens/crows...and share a "Sparkly Crow" attraction to certain bling...and now Elaine had gifted me with the most wonderful, amazing Raven plaque...she (my Raven is definitely a girl) was created by Sarah Fitch of Rolling Raven Studio... in my favorite colors and with the motto
"Ars Longa Vita Brevis"...
(I used to have this quote at the end of my e-mails) ~ :)


Thank you again, dear Elaine...you can't imagine how this lovely Raven made my day!

Have a great Wednesday, all!

  1. It's a wonderful piece! Beautiful. Crows are such an interesting bird. WE have plenty here and they sure love to make noise. I think they are very cool. :)
    Have a great night.

  10. Hi, Anne. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I found your nest tutorial interesting as I just found another nest today. I'm thinking it's easier to find them than to make them! Looking forward to following your blog.
