How Sweet Is This!


While out thrifting the other day I found this absolutely darling Charlotte Becker print and I couldn't pass it up! Isn't it just too sweet! When I saw it some man had just picked it up and I'm thinking put it down, put it down, that's not you! Well sure enough he put it down and I swooped in (gracefully and tactfully), snatched it up and ran off. Well ok, so I siddled up when he was a few feet away and then quietly picked it up and continued shopping, no use making a spectacle of oneself--right? ;)

I had thought about putting it in my Etsy Shoppe, but then decided that I think I may have to keep it and hang it in my sewing room. I scanned it in, so it'll come up large if you click on it, but I scanned it with the glass of the frame still covering it and there's a bit of a streak that's not there on the print itself. Oh too cute!

PS--Helen if you see this, doesn't the little girl look like Julie. That's who I think of when I see her.

Oh Cathy you have to keep such a sweet thing! Funny story about the man looking it over. I like him and I haven't even seen him, but if he took the time to even look at it...I like him.

What a great print! And what a lovely blog! I adore your fall/halloween tree! My mother goes all out for her annual Halloween party!

I wandered over to your blog. Found you on the 2009 One World One Heart Giveaway site. After watching the movie Julie and Julia recently, I've decided to try and go through the ENTIRE OWOH list, from beginning to end, in 90 days and connect/reconnect with all the artists and blogs that truly inspire me! Your blog is amazing and really resonated with me!

A bit about me. I'm a mystery writer, jewelry artist, and college professor. Yes, and a Gemini, if you couldn't tell! Here is my blog, where I blend my mystery writing and jewelry craft:

My first mystery Keeping House: A Madame President mystery just came out on Amazon.
Take care and as Julia Child might say, "Bon Blogging!"
