I've really enjoyed this handmade ipad cover and stand which I found on etsy.  I love the fun, cheery fabric it's made out of, and most importantly, it protects my investment well, as it's padded and holds my tablet securely in place.  It even has a couple of pockets on the inside for storing paper bits.  

I suppose the only way to improve upon this cover would be to put a small hole in the back so I wouldn't have to take the ipad out in order to take photos and videos; that being said, it's very easy to get it in and out, so it's not too much of a hassle.

Take the crystal, the sparkle
Out of life,
And what do you get?

The baseness of life,
And that's a hard place to be.

I want to hatch out of the egg.

Crystalline dreams be damned...

Just let me climb in flight
To the sparkle of another day.

~ written by me ~


The bounty 
Of life on a pedestal

Down in the grass,
Peering at splendor

Crystal glittering in the sun

Remnants of a life well done

Seize the scraps of delight;
Tuck them into heart-chambers

That are beating out the breath 
Of one small life

Any of these things can instantaneously cheer me up. >w< Also, bubbles.

Such delightful artwork this is--well done chibird!

I think a cheeseburger and fries or pizza should definitely be in one of the jars.  And a piece of jewelry by Rose & Robin Adornments, of course!

Hmmm, what's that down in my mustache cup, nestled in a paper towel...

A fragment of a robin's-egg shell, of course!

This is the second time I've found a piece of one outside on the ground, but I've never come across an actual nest.  I'm keeping an eye out though! ☺

I found the first one while taking a walk last spring, and this one was in my sister's yard.  Finding a shell doesn't necessarily mean a nest is nearby, as the mother birds sometimes fly the shells up to a mile away after the babies hatch in an effort to thwart predators--and maybe even nosy photographers as well (see the second video here).

*For those who'd like to know more about my 'stache cup, it's a Tervis tumbler.  I just lurv these liquid-holders, as they keep drinks cold and don't develop condensation or create water-rings.
