warmhearted

Just illustrated this home which makes me think of warmhearted play dates, spending time after school, jumping rope, selling lemonade and feeling all the pride and joy of that flag waving. We are having a really cold day today....but just thinking of a sunny spring day makes my heart a bit warmer. Hope you are staying warm and thinking sunny thoughts today.
Stay warm

It is fun to see this beautiful home illustrated so well. Looks like it could be the Fourth of July, which is rather fun to imagine on this cold Chicago morning.

Fondly,
Glenda

Patricia,
Aren't we having quite a cold spell filled with lots of snow this winter? Also, I've been meaning to ask you where you ski? I was thinking of you last wknd when we were in Woodstock eating at Sweet Sues! Or do you go to VT?

This is warm and lovely - unlike my feet which are frozen... Could it be any colder? Perhaps at the North Pole!

Great illustration, feels like hometown, USA. It's been sunny and in the 50's the last couple of days at my house. Looking forward to Summer and lounging by the pool:)
