EDGAR


Marie has chosen BLACKBIRD as our word for this week at Take a Word.  That got me thinking about Edgar, a blackbird I know who lives by the sea, but who each year likes to spend a week or two in the country to kick up his heels and recharge his batteries.    This is Edgar taking his morning constitutional through the meadow on his way to see his lady friend Rapunzel who lives in a tower and has very long hair!

Credit to Crowabout Studio B for this lovely freebie, whilst the shoes and Edgar are free to use.

Great inspirational word as always Marie.

Thanks for looking.

What a colorful bit of whimsy with a story to match! I'm sure we'd all like to meet Rapunzel. She has such good taste in fine-feathered fellows! BRAVO, my dear. This is a winner.

When are you going to publish your book of fairy tales? This one is priceless! Seriously, I read to my small grandchildren and this is exactly the type of humour they love and understand.
Fantastic artpiece, Ann. I love it.
