Wind-blown Bob and Sunflowers!

My thrifty finds here are two small framed vintage illustrations, probably from a children's book or magazine. I found them at a street fair a few years ago and just loved the soft pastel colors. Perfect for cottage decorating!

The little girl standing in the wind with her fly-away bob reminds me of my mother's story of her growing up years when she and her girlfriends went out and got these classy new haircuts. Wind-swept bobs were all the rage in her day. And I think of her as a young girl every time I look at this adorable picture.

The children playing with sunflowers are so sweet and make me think of summer at its best. And sunflowers always seem to say, "Be Happy!" happy and have a wonderful weekend!
