In the book, Divatiel, Reflections of a bird’s companion, I answer frequently asked questions about life with my fine feathered friend, such as can she talk or where does she poop. However, until everyone saw the book cover, I never heard the question: Is that really her wearing a tiara?
To be perfectly honest, I’d give high praise to anyone who could wrangle my little Diva and put anything on her head! While it’s a good question, I’m sorry to say that the photo is Jake’, but the tiara has been added thanks to the wonders of Photoshop.
I must admit, I chuckled uproariously the first time I saw the cover. Shelly Volsche had captured a different tiara and quickly put it atop her head, to make sure she understood what I was looking for regarding the cover design. It was just a tad askew, as if the Princess had a rough night and was getting home in the wee hours of the morning.
I knew it was right the second I saw it, and we went in search of the perfect tiara to adorn her pretty little plume. We both settled on the purple stones at first glance!
Those of you who would like your own tiara, they should be arriving here sometime in late February. They’re not an exact match, but will make an excellent gift to the diva in your life – even if that diva is you!
More news to come!
