Look at this! I had a surprise belated birthday present today from Mum. I'd heard her talk about these little matchbox books for a while, and I've visited Gina Ferrari's page Fan My Flame - but I wasn't expecting to be treated to one myself!
As you may have guessed, I'm partial to members of the Crow family. I love them and never tire of watching them, listening to them, drawing them and reading about their behaviour. I love this little book as I think Gina definitely understands 'crow'. Some people tend to look at me strangely as though to say 'why on earth would you want a crow on it!?!?' - but this is perfect. I love the way the box is even lined with lovely crow paper, and there is a wonderful stitched crow on the cover of the book.
Such care has gone into making it, it really is like little treasure. I will write in the book, I don't know what but I'll think of something. Probably a crow poem. I have an altar in my home, so I think this little chap will live on there to keep him safe. He can also guard the space for me when I'm not in.
