Gorgeous drawings, fancy teacup and the bird is my fav! I noticed that I am always attracted to little details on cups or birds because that's my fav part of drawing...the little details. Yours are so exquisite! If I may ask, can you recommend a book on botanicals that I can use as drawing inspiration. I can make up flowers/leaves but to do botanically correct ones, I need a drawing/image.

Today I picked another feather for you in Bruges: a black one with a blue shade on it. I am still looking for a nice piece of cotton for the inside of the tote bag I promised you. I don't forget you and I will send it to you before we go on holiday to the French Pyrenees (end of July)
A big hug

I also have a ton of Japanese books...knitting books, and I still can't understand what they're trying to tell me. The patterns are so beautiful thought...

You never fail to inspire me, this time with your teacup and flowerpot...always something new...

Oh, also, for some reason, the thumbnail of the bird below, I though he was holding maracas LOL!
