Looks like a home for miniature-me. What a great idea to put it out into the world as a gift on our birthday!!!

Lisa said...

Love it! It's very Pattie: artistic, unique, and cheerful. It would look great in my new nest in Asheville.

So great to hear from you. Happy birthday a few days early.

Dearest Pattie,

How dare I forget about the wonderful, inspiring
place(s) of authenticity and beauty that you've created here in cyberspace.

I've been away far too long.

Thank you for reminding me about this oasis...all your oasii. :-)

Can't wait to catch up!

With love and appreciation,

The glory of YOUR ART and FRIENDSHIP manifests in so many unexpected ways...this post being another perfect example!!!


Believing in YOU allows us to discover that someone else believes in US...and we all become willing to trust and expose our authentic selves in this artistic and poetic community of friendship.

What a beautiful way to celebrate your birthday! It would look lovely next to my wonderful "Dream Girl" that you sent me as a RAK last year!!
On my birthday I always send flowers to my mom and treat all my friends to birthday cookies or something special. Just to let them know that their friendship is the best gift! Your art has inspired me so much the past year--it makes me more motivated to create fun art for others! Happy Birthday!!

Ohmigosh, Pattie! Happy, happy upcoming birthday!!! Can't wait to celebrate with you via cyberspace on the big day; and even better, a large slice of "virtual" birthday cake has no calories or fat grams! Hooray!

Can't wait to catch up with you. Was thrilled to hear about Art Doll Quarterly ... am rushing out the door to pick up one now!

Happy Birtday! You are inspiring in so many ways. I was just doodling around looking at your various sites. It started, actually, w/ checking out how you've done your "shop"...another good idea that I might have to "copy". I've seen a few others sell art that way, and it makes sense. I think I make life too complicated by thinking I need my own website, when a blogger account would do perfectly well. I was totally inspired by your site where your posting your journal pages and asking questions. And then all that ART you have on the next site. I've always wanted to paint furniture and I don't know what's holding me back...I have a cabinet that I bought for that express purpose and I've never done anything w/ it. I'll tell you what I think the key is...the fact that you donate so much of your art. Giving truly can free the spirit. In regards to "Nest"...just beautiful. (But if you're going to give it away you had better remove it from your listing's of art for sale!) Have a beautiful day, Pattie. Can't wait to see future art! Miriam

ROK said...

Pattie, you are brilliant! No doubt! What an outstanding way to simultaneously GIVE and RECEIVE, to share your art, your blog, yourSELF, your LIFE with so many people -- to touch souls.

I LOVE this NEST piece. So resonates with the RocknRobin Mama Bird in me! ;-)

Happy Birthday, all year long!


Luna said...

Happy Birthday Patti! Hope you have a wonderful day! You are one of my favorite people...

Your bench at the BCCR took my breath away - it's gorgeous! If my husband wouldn't murder me, I'd bid lots for it!

Love you! Holly Garver
