Today my heart was filled with sadness when I saw that our beloved Sunshine had died.
It was Teri's bird who flew into her life two years ago.
On her blog she posted about this sweet little bird and she always filled my heart with joy.
I know Teri will be heartbroken and that she will miss this little girl.
And so will I and many others. I enjoyed her adventures so much!
Teri I am so sorry for your loss.
Hugs from Sjimmie and me.


  1. Oh Marianne....what gorgeous tributes to the *One and Only Sunshine*! Both of these paintings brought have captured this little birds *sparkle* in her mischievious eyes! I know Teri will be moved....

    We will all miss Sunshine so much..
