Some things just speak to your heart.....this lovely lady spoke to mine....Isn't she beautiful? I love her expression. You know she is delighted about something, but she is keeping it entirely to herself.

I picture her at a lovely tea party admiring the affection being passed between a young couple in love....remembering the days of her youth.

I was recently at a wonderful flea market and I kept thinking...."I remember that, or those." I must have said it outloud, for a little lady selling her wares said, " that's what fleamarkets are all about, we are buying our childhoods back." How true is that? You never know what fond memories we will attach to things as children.... our mothers' apron, vintage garden tools to remind us of the time we spent in the garden with grandma; potatoe mashers bringing back memories and smells of the warm kitchen watching dinner being prepared after sunday is worth every penny.

Maybe she reminds you of someone or something. I just thought she was charmingly beautiful....she will be in my Etsy store later today.
