"The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us."

~Ashley Montagu, anthropologist

I purchased this adorable post card the other day. It is by Rose O'Neill ~ From the KEWPIES AND THEIR BOOK, 1911.

I thought it very fitting of the quote.

That is a sweet card! and the quote is very fitting. I copied it. Oh, and I also should tell you, I hope you don't mind, I saved your recent photo of the bleeding heart flowers and have it as my desktop screen. I'm rather late in asking permission so I should ask for forgiveness for the theft.

adorable. you have eclectic tastes like i do. there is beauty in so many different things.

thank you, as always, for stopping by my blog and commenting. i have switched to spanish since i express myself so much better in my native tongue but i can see you are still perceiving the ideas. the idea for my latest post on my children came from visiting lucias blog. she is moving and has run into boxes filled with memories of her girls growing up.

hugs and blessings audrey, appreciate your friendship
