Click on Image to Enlarge

I just adore this!! This gorgeous card came in the mail today and I couldn’t wait to share it with you!! Featured above is a Girl in a Nest. She’s petting a big beautiful Swallow Bird and there are lovely Pink Blossoms just above her. So gorgeous and a wonderful example of Surrealism!

In other News: We’re having a little discussion about color trends today over on my DIY Blog, I hope you will pop over and join the conversation!


  1. Could that be Thumbelina? Didn’t she get carried away by a swallow?

  2. I’m inspired to use this color today…Emerald.

  3. Hi Karen,
    That reminds me of Thumbelina; one of my most loved stories when I was a child. Thank you for the post.

  4. Beautiful! Thanks!!!

  5. Dear Karen,

    I was just over at your DIY site. How could you have turned 50.You look like you’re 30. I get how young looking you are, but where do you get the energy. Thank-you for being one of the greatest blessings in my life and business. Happy New Year, a devotee, Katie

  6. How darling. It’s my new wallpaper image!

  7. Karen, this is beautiful! Thank you!

  8. FYI, while the image is indeed surreal, it is not connected with the cultural movement of Surrealism. Dali’s “Persistance of Memory” is an excellent example of Surrealism!

    Keep up the great work. You have some of the most enchanting images on the web!

  9. Gorgeous image – thank you so so much, Dru

  10. Love this picture. (My husband is even going to put the link on the blog he manages for our little lovebird.) The title may be something like ‘When birds keep pets’.
