Check out this little guy. My cousin made the cardinal out of sculpy clay because she’s cool that way, and sent it to me because she’s cool that way.
I had a hard time trying to decide how to decorate the egg for this fellow – he’s so darn cute on his own. So in the end I just went with a plain red & white egg in my favorite star-crossed lovers pattern. Damn I really love making those little stars/crosses. It’s kind of trance inducing. And as long as I don’t lose focus they all line up perfectly orderly.
Three cheers for orderliness and repetition – and repetition.
And a gold star to me for having the pretentiousness to call a series of diagonal lines and x’s a pattern.
I think the little cardinal who has been singing his own praises in my backyard lately might approve.
