Sweets and surprises of all shapes and sizes

To surprise Justina Chen Headley at her North of Beautiful book launch last month, Miss Erin and I cooked up a grand scheme for her and her mom, Sherry, to stay with me in Seattle. Mission accomplished!

So imagine my surprise when I received a note from Erin and Sherry with the following, incredibly adorable piece of art:

I love art! I love birds! I love thoughtful presents from friends. Thank you, Erin and Sherry! I will treasure it.

See more of artist Kristiana Pärn's wonderful art at Poppytalk Handmade.

Stop by here or the readergirlz blog on Friday for another surprise - a really fun giveaway! Tell your friends!


  1. So glad you like this token of thanks.

    Your gift to us was perfect and very joy-making. We so enjoyed your family's sweet hospitality.

    Hope this finds you all in good health.

  2. Mum and I both thought automatically of you and yours when we saw the picture. Glad you like it. :)

    And thank you again ever so much for your hospitality!

  3. Thanks to you both! It was really so very thoughtful! I love it.

  4. Oh gosh. That's gorgeous. And so entirely like the Erin and Sherry I've imagined.

    Thank you, Holly, for your note of today. Thanks for everything!
