This letter will go to Egypt when it's finished, so I thought I'd paint some Australian cockatoos, inspired by the Malties bird album (cereal box collector cards from the 1940s). I'm thinking of doing a whole series of Australian native birds based on these cards. Kind of a tribute to Mr B's grandfather, who collected and kept all the cards (he died before I knew him but we just unearthed boxes and boxes of his wonderful hobbies and collections). But then I remembered how I sent a bird postcard to someone recently only to discover she had a bird phobia 🐦😬 What do you think? Would you like to see more painted birds on envelopes fluttering through the post? 🌿 #thesimpleeveryday #shared_joy #styleonmytable #domesticforaging #astilllifestyle #moodymorninglight #ofquietmoments #thesincerestoryteller #distractionsandinspirations #theartofslowliving #loveforanalogue #liveauthentic #prettycreativestyle #collectivelycreate #themakersyear #creativelife #womenwhodraw #cherishandrelish #the_gentle_manifesto #mailthatmeanssomething #morningscenes #deliveredbypost #letterboxlove #writtenbyhand #littlestoriesofmylife #slowlived #naturalillustration #cupsinframes #outgoingmail #vintageephemera
