Magical Hummingbird Folklore

My favorite legend of the magical hummingbird comes from the greeting card company, Papyrus

“Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy, and celebration.  Hummingbirds open our eyes to the wonder of the world and inspire us to open our hearts to loved ones and friends.  Like a hummingbird, we aspire to hover and to savor each moment as it passes, embrace all that life has to offer and to celebrate the joy of everyday.  The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning, and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.”

A good friend recently told me that the presence of hummingbirds is a reminder to appreciate the sweet little things in life ♥

Artist Adolf Dehn

I was looking to purchase holiday cards entitled “Avian Holiday” by Adolf Dehn. I think I missed out on the boxed card sale already and can’t find it anywhere =(. Oh well, I deserve this for waiting too long. I did a little research on this artist and instantly fell in love with his work…

*Reference: wikipedia.org
“Adolf Dehn (1895-1968) was one of the most notable lithographers of the 20th century. Throughout his artistic career, Dehn participated in and helped define some important movements in American art, including Regionalism, Social Realism, and caricature. He was known for both his technical skills and his high-spirited, droll depictions of human foibles.”
