Lovely bird, the Norwegian blue. Beautiful plumage
(apologies to karen for jacking her entry format.)
A week before my birthday, my mother sent to me:
A pair of lovely reproduction freshwater pearl earrings from the Winterthur collection
Two charming posable jointed wooden lizards
A check for a hundred smackers that is NOT going into savings
A tiny playable xylophone keychain just like the Fisher-Price toy
A copy of her living will
The antique stuffed hummingbird in a nest pictured below.
All in all, a suitably cryptic and colorful birthday package, no?
