I love beautiful old children's illustrations. I can't get enough of them . . . I love the old one's best and have found more and more artists that I adore their work. These are by Mabel Lucie Attwell ~ the roundness of their faces, the colors that were used ~ her work is just amazing. Now if I could only find an old book chock full of her illustrations!! And should you ever run across a copy of The Water-Babies, would you grab it for me??!

The birthday party Saturday for my MIL was so much fun and I think she really liked herself as a fairy!!! (I used a photo of her when she was a young girl to transform her into the fairy)
I'm so very excited!!! I've enlisted the talents of a wonderful artist to create a NEW banner for my blog! I can't wait to see what she comes up with . . . Our boys are out of school this week, fall break they call it ~ that's why we go back to school the first of August, every six weeks they get a week off. And believe me the kids are ready and the teachers are really ready when six weeks rolls around!! It's really wonderful ~
I hope your week is great, remember squeeze in a little time to do what you love and do what makes you smile ~ wishing you a wonderful Monday,
