These birds have tastes I can't afford. I've told them, they must stay outside the door.

Is their favorite hangout.
Their taste is good.
There is no doubt.

They show their clout.

They flock in the door.
They always want much more.
They say I am an awful bore.

These birds will not settle for anything less
They insist upon the very best.

While I'm left at home eating Whitman's
They've flown off to their favorite store.

    These are really sweet--all these color mixes are very refreshing and lovely. The birds are adorable as always!

  3. I live in a maison du chocolat...of sorts...the birds don't have a chance here.

    I love the birdie/chocolate combo :)

    Avec poemes of course.

  4. Mmmm, chocolates! The only reason Valentine’s Day doesn’t drive me completely insane.

    Beautiful juxtapositions!

  5. Are there words? Sooooo beautiful.

    I wanted to name our first daughter Valentina. Well, after three days as "Baby A" we finally decided on another Italian name fit enough for that beautiful creature. ;-)

  6. you have a beautiful blog. i'm trying to do something similar with food and watercolour sketches, but none of my stuff is as cool as yours.

  7. Even though I adore their brown packaging it looks equally gorgeous in red. I adore your paintings on this post. I can't wait to see Charlotte's painting in March. She keeps saying the raspberry colour leaps out of it and I bet the red in these does the same. Clever Gal!

  8. delicate and brilliant. love the colours.

  9. It's beautiful. Thank you! Love the colours and liveliness of the birds -- and your poetry!

  10. I am looking forward to the bird that is flying to the other side of the world to live here! With La maison du chocolate...

  11. beautiful pictures once again!

  12. Wonderfl watercolours! tell me, are you in France just right now?

  13. Lines of chocolates, flaming red and tiny yellow chickies. What could be better?!?

  14. From Caty tell me, are you in France just right now?
    I'm ALWAYS in France in my head..but for the moment I'm in NYC :)
