The Bluebird of Happiness

A Little Book of Cheer

The bluebird has long been considered a symbol of happiness and a messenger of joy and contentment. . . . It is my hope that this book, like the bluebird’s song of happiness, will bring cheer and joy to your life. –Vicky Howard, introduction

* Vicky Howard’s collection of antique bird art–nearly all pieces over 100 years old–is used here to adorn her lovely message about what is really important in our pursuit of happiness.

Vicky Howard is a successful and recognizable name in the gift market.

Using art from her private collection of vintage postcards, Howard presents avian images alongside positive-minded quotes from the early 1900s. While the creative elements of this book recall an early era, the art remains vivid and the words decidedly relevant:

* You cannot always have happiness, but you can give happiness. –Proverb

* The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things. –Henry Ward Beecher
