Sharing my day with you...
My brother-in-law, Don Eaton, in Birmingham, Alabama, had a stroke on Monday. He is the old navy man's older brother. My heart is in Alabama these days and with him and his family.
Don is an artist...he painted this bird nest and eggs watercolor for me. I have been enjoying it this Autumn season. ♥
These flowers arrived at my house on my birthday. From my favorite son. Beautiful, aren't they?
Here is the card that came with them. I had to Google the French, as I don't understand a word of it. I just think it is beautiful on the page. I went to Google translate and this is what I got: "You are my mother, preferred." How cute is that?
Here are close-ups of the flowers. LOVE THEM!
I like to dry the roses and have several around the house that I have saved over time. I will save these too. Visual memories, so to speak.
He also sent me this lovely bird book. He said I mentioned one time wanting a children's book about birds, in French, so he found this one on amazon.com. Who knew? I love it....I can't read it, of course, but I can enjoy looking at it. Actually, when I am out scouting the flea markets, I always look for books in French. Not much chance of them turning up in Arkansas, but it gives me something to look for! My dream is to find a vintage French book on needlework....well, yes, I DID say DREAM!But, you never know.....and I do like a challenge!
The artwork is just gorgeous in this book....makes me want to take another stab at doing more applique and embroidering of birds.
Just lovely. Wouldn't a kid enjoy these?
I will enjoy this book for a very long time...inspiration is always a good thing! Thank you, Scott!
I hope you all have a safe and wonderful day!
Until next time, take care. ♥ pat
I voted the first day of early voting in Arkansas. PLEASE vote! People died so we would have the privilege of voting.
