happy birthday norman


if you google anything today you will see the sweet little spooners, a tribute to norman rockwell's birthday. he was always a beloved artist in my childhood home. i enjoyed thumbing through the glossy pages of Norman Rockwell Behind the Camera before i gave the book to my dad for christmas.

like my parents say–every time they give us a book–it's nice to have a good selection to browse on other people's shelves.

The boy scout museum in Irving, TX has quite a collection of Norman Rockwell paintings. They *used* to be in Cadiz, KY - just up the road from us. Like an idiot I put off going to see them. And now they're gone. -sigh-

Norman Rockwell will forever remind me of both my Nana and my dentist office growing up. I love things like this that bring me straight back to my eight year-old self. :)

P.S. You totally need to make your handwriting into a font. I'd buy that in a heartbeat!

I found your blog the other day through "a devine life" and I've spent hours looking through your archives.

I love your blog! Love the photos, colours, pretty things, blank printable calendars, stocking stuffer lists, ideas, quotes, so many things.

I've been inspires since I started reading. Thank you!
