The text and paintings on The Trowbridge Chronicles are taken from the illustrated journal of Violet Trowbridge, a shrew that once lived in a village deep in the Olympic Rain Forest. Each new post will represent a portion of Mrs. Trowbridge’s journal.

EVENING PRIMROSE DOWN MATTRESS

This page from Mrs. Trowbridge's journal includes a touch of romance. It surprised me a bit when I first read it. Shrews and pink nighties? Somehow I just can't put the two together. But hey, I'm not a shrew. What do I know?

Mrs. T liked to paint flowers on the vases in her cottage. I put this page under my microscope and identified the flower on the night stand pitcher as an orange honeysuckle. That's a Monkey flower on the large vase behind the bed. I wish you could see the small details better.

She usually did a tight pencil drawing, then put a watercolor wash on top of it, but sometimes she would let her pencil drawing stand alone. Such is the case with the drawing of their bedroom on the bottom of the page.

A shrew in a peek-a-boo nightie. Hehe. Adorable, as usual.

Being a male college student full of testosterone, I would have to call myself a "closet Trowbridge fan". But I'm definitely a fan. Keep up the good work dad, and don't tell the guys!

Bron, I am so prone to tears these days...it's hard to be a TART ya know... but this little note from the Mrs. just simply brings me JOY. I love that she is getting her nighty out! I just am so glad that there is a tad bit of Tart in her... although none CHEAP... she is a sweet soul.

Softest feather kiss to-date,
The Tart
