A work of art....


Sending out a big bloggy THANK-YOU today to sweet Susanna Gordon of Susanna's Sketchbook. She is the creator of the winged messenger series. These comforting letters of hope have found their way around the globe via willing photographers and continue to do so. I was lucky enough to receive a set of my own to photograph. Susanna is a wonderful photographer in her own right too and I always enjoy visiting her blog to see what new images she is sharing. I am just one of many people saying gracias to Susanna today:) You can see more of these lovely soul lifters in this flickr group, "a message with wings"

I am just shocked that this is happening...how? when? I had NO idea until this morning when I sat down in front of my computer in my pajamas and read Angie's email. I had to read it three times before it sunk in - hee! I am just soooooo moved by your generosity and kindness. I am sooooo lucky to have met you through our blogs. Thank YOU for participating in my winged messenger project. It's so much better because of you. :)

Good evening!

Nice to come over here to your corner of the web. I once sailed from Europe in a 15 foot boat to Sait Johns in New Foundland. Then we trailed it down to the US in a U-haul truck. We drove through Nova Scotia too. And if I recall it right I thought it looked very much there like here in Sweden.

Love,
Olga

Relyn said...

That bottom image of yours literally made me gasp. So lovely.

Thank you for all of your help Shelagh!

And thanks for the honorary princess title. Maybe it will perk up my evening ;O)
