Simply lovely post Dawn - your favorite things definitely resonate with me as well. The images you find and share are always gorgeous...and what a sweet, adorable photo of Miss Clara! And buttons...how can something so "ordinary" be so extraordinary?! I appreciate your friendship and creativity and the generosity you exhibit in sharing both! Thank you!

Hugs & Blessings,
Becky

PS - it was such a kick to look through the latest Art Quilting Studio magazine with my Mom the other day and see your work there. We were both so very inspired and impressed!! - Hugs, B

Hi Dawn
What a darling picture of Clara, so sweet.
Funny you should mention a screen door - I have one hanging above my work table in my studio in back of the shop :)
Have a wonderful evening

That's so crazy that you posted about these things today--I LOVE Waterhouse art, and have a whole calendar with his gorgeous paintings featured--and I have several framed Bourgereau prints in my house--he is my absolute favorite artist, and I've been a fan of his for many years. AND, I just visited my favorite little antique shop in Old Elk Grove this afternoon and bought some buttons and lace! I am just crazy for old buttons--This sweet 75 year-old lady owns the shop and she sells vintage pearl buttons that she's placed inside of antique salt shakers, and then she sticks a few old pearl-topped hairpins on top through the shaker holes. Very sweet . . . I'll have to post photos soon.
By the way, Clara is just as cute as ever!!!! They grow so very fast, though, don't they?

Hey, my fairy! I love her!
The paintings are always a pleasure to revisit, and the friends photo is great.
Happy Day!

My that adorable baby is getting to be such a big girl!

And I loved your peat pot baby and that photo of all the girls lined up at the end of this post. I have one pretty much exactly like it, but it is of my husbands grandma. I love those old photos!

Dawn, I think Clara looks like you.

My sister has a granddaughter that looks just like her clone. It amazes me how that happens.
Clara is so pretty!
