Pansies...that's for thoughts...

Oh, I escaped from work for a little bit - the guys went to play golf last week so I get a few hours off now.....love it!

Thought I would take a little while to sort through some goodies and look what I found!! I LOVE old calendars (couldn't you tell???) and most especially ones with flowers AND birds!! So here is a fabulous 1898 Pansy calendar with an adorable bluebird!! Thought maybe you could use bits of this in a nice piece of art :) - so charming!!

I am waiting for my darling youngest daughter to come bring me lunch - yes, I actually get lunch today, too!!! What a day!! And there she comes - oh, with something that smells good!!! Love you guys!! Have a lovely day, my friends!!!

Blessings and birdsong,

I loved all the pansy's. I love to paint pansys and roses. The little blue bird is beautiful too.
