The Pirate Vessel Bluebird Has Arrived

So the Bluebird sails out of The Magpie's Nest; get over it!



It took awhile to find the right map.



Then we had to find something to win over the honored guest...



No, wait. I meant this.

And a little something for the hostess.


Meanwhile, I'm keeping this for me!

See you later ladies!

There's nothing like gifting oneself, that way you get the perfect gift, which I think you've found.
