Round Robin Journal #6

Angie's Journal
Angie did a page with a scalloped edge at the beginning of her journal
and I thought it was so pretty. I should have posted a picture of it here,
but alas I have already sent her journal on its way.
Anyhow, I've done one of my own here at the 
beginning of my pages in her journal.

I tried my hand at an English robin, so different from the American robin,
the only similar characteristic being a red breast.

My American robin in Kim's journal.
I've just noticed that I put a crown on both birds!
I'm getting predictable...

 The crown is punched out . . . it looks different depending on the light in the photo.
Sunlight coming in behind it makes it look white:
The poem on the front is by Wordsworth:

Art thou the bird whom man loves best,

The pious bird with the scarlet breast,

Our little English robin;

 The bird that comes about our doors,

 When autumn winds are sobbing?

Happy weekend, everyone!

Stop back for a cup of tea on Sunday ~
it's the Fairies' Tea Party!


  1. Ah this is gorgeous, Maggie! Angie is going to Love it! I do! The lady is so soft and I love that you put flowers in her hair. So feminine. I also love the words you chose and the bird is adorable!!


  2. I adore your little robins! I just did an image search for Europen birds to paint... and of course the English Robin is included. Lovely journal!

  3. Maggie,
    Angie will be so excited! All so beautiful. Love the poem with it! I like how you scalloped your page as well. AND.... I love my page!!! yipppee! I can't wait to hold it and see it all in person!

  4. Oh Maggie it's BEAUTIFUL!!! Love everything about it - the subtle patterns, the delicate colours, the serene expression on her face, the poem, and that scalloped edge really suits it. Not to mention the gorgeous little robin (you've educated me too - I never knew English robins were different to American ones!) I can't wait to see it in real life - thank you so much xx

  5. You always amaze me Maggie with you thoughtfulness and talent. These pages
    are truly Maggie-ificent! I love all of the feminine lacy-ness, which is just how I imagine Angie to be.


I always love to hear what you have to say! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
