Welcome to the shop of this pattern abecedarian. I am a lapsed architect, certified artist, dedicated dabbler and hopeful realist who is learning to accept that she will never be an opera singer.

Description:

Based on Hans Christian Andersen's eponymous tale of two nightingales: one mechanical and one real... When the emperor of China heard the nightingale sing it brought tears to his eyes. The emperor was a powerful man, and because the nightingale sang his song in the palace gardens the emperor declared that the bird belonged to him. But the nightingale would not sing on the emperor's command, so when the emperor was given a precious mechanical nightingale the real one was banished. The mechanical nightingale was a splendid work of art. It dazzled the court with its virtuosity and flawless beauty, and it sang whenever the emperor wanted it to. But one thing it didn't do: it didn't bring tears to the emperor's eyes...
