thinking of you























Every so often, a kind soul sends me a sweet something in the form of an e-mail with an attachment.  Often, it is an illustration with a comment something like this - "thinking of you and spotted this illustration which I thought you would like."  "Like" - is an understatement, I love it! 
The above illustration of Coco Chanel by Cecil Beaton is so whimsical and although it is in black ink, it is full of color, of style and just simply so fun.  Thinking of you and hope you have a wonderful weekend.
