The drawing on the right is the Eastern Bluebird
Happily, I'm able to post almost every day and this is #997. This giveaway in the "Countdown to 1,000 Posts" celebration is a great favorite of mine. If you're a fan of John James Audubon, you will want to be part of this. If you're not a fan of Audubon, but enjoy birds and nature, you will want to be part of this. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't enjoy these beautiful cards and I am happy to mail them anywhere in the world.
Today's giveaway are four cards done by Genevieve Jones, who worked fifty years after Audubon. She was inspired by seeing Audubon's "Birds of America" at the Centennial World's Fair in Philadelphia in 1876. She completed five drawings and suddenly died of typhoid fever. Her family completed her work and the drawings are extraordinary. The images are wrapped in a copy of the original flyer that was produced to sell subscriptions. The cards would be a beautiful wall decoration, whether framed separately or grouped in one frame.
This giveaway runs until midnight on Monday, July 15 and I will announce the winner on Tuesday, July 16. Please be a friend on Google +, Google Friend or Bloglovin and leave a comment. It looks like "Pink Saturday" will be #1,000. I may post #1,000 on Saturday, but we'll have fun all month.
Today was an errand day and tomorrow I'm back to my project in the library. I'm going to a retirement party in the evening in Westchester and if I'm really hopping I'm going to try an exercise class in the morning. It's called "Sit and Be Fit," and I'm hoping that it's just the right level of exercise.
Wishes for a terrific Thursday!
