Glorious glittering bird

hand-painted quetzal stationery

Wow, was this ever a sight to behold! This fine pen pal is (obviously) a fabulous artist, and I've been treated to her wonderful artwork before. The explosion of color on this hand-painted stationery is so exciting!

I hope I am not misremembering, but I believe she called this bird a quetzal, a tropical bird with brilliantly colored plumage.


I know you wanted a closer look at those glittering feathers! Her use of glitter accents is ever so masterful.

This beauty came packaged in a handmade rose envelope. I could almost smell it...
