Tuesday's Truths WK 25: Honoring David Bowie




It's week twenty-five of my Tuesday's Truths series, and today I'm remembering that David Bowie died exactly one year ago. A You Tube video posted above features him in bygone years where he is singing The Little Drummer Boy with Bing Crosby. And a figurine rendered in the drummer boy's likeness can be seen in the following picture. This image also featured in a posting that I wrote for hometalk (HT) that you may refer to by clicking here.


The aforementioned HT includes a view of my figurine appearing in a crèche that I had in my home at the time of that publication and a copy of of this "scene" image can be seen below.


And last year, the same drummer boy played his drum within a different crèche scene (seen below) that was also in my home.


He came back again to play his drum this year, which can be seen in the following image.


As is his standard, my little drummer boy likes to be surrounded by figurines. A majority of the array of figurines seen in these images came from More & More Antiques, the shop in Manhattan's UWS which is now selling my fauna-flora-insect-themed postcards.

Steve Mohr, the sole proprietor of this shop is enthusiastic about my collection and at his suggestion, I may offer my cards in boxed-sets in this new year! I've already created promo cards that feature thumb-nails of each of my postcards! They can be seen in the following pictures.



Steve is currently carrying each type of my postcards, and each type of them have also been given to the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum (at their request) on a consignment basis.

Moreover, the gift shop at The Raptor Trust (a bird rehab facility in New Jersey), is currently carrying my fauna-themed postcards.

Meanwhile, all of these postcards can also be viewed within a prior post here on Blogger; as well as within a store-front page on my web-site, patriciayoungquist.com.

Every image within my postcard collection is from the iBook and ePub version of Cam's book, Words In Our Beak, Volume One.



My fauna-flora-insect themed postcards are a fairly new endeavor to me, but I'm hardly a stranger to creating greeting cards. In fact one of the valentines I've created can be seen below.


It is featured along with a number of cards in this style within a short virtual presentation in my Vimeo Library. This particular card was inspired by another song, Dancing In The Streets, associated with David Bowie. His performance with Mick Jagger is fantastic as evidenced below.



I'm grateful for the contributions that David Bowie has made through his music; and I wish those near and dear to him lots of peace of mind this anniversary of his death.
