Brighten your Day with a Smile!

Let me introduce Rowan...
He wears a pretty tag, the idea is my hubby and I smile seeing him...life tends to sometimes make us gloomy, and I just prefer happy faces around me! 

I wanted for Rowan a clown hat, but as you can imagine it would have been pretty impossible to find a perfectly matching hue, so I simply painted rhombus shapes on silk! 

"If someone is too tired to give you a smile, leave one of your own, because no one needs a smile as much as those who have none to give".


  1. Rowen did make me smile! He is just as cute as he can be, and makes me just want to pick him up out of my monitor and give him a big hug! laurie

  2. He's beautiful!!! I love his color, that is wonderful!!!!
    You are sooooo talented sweetie!!!

  8. Rowan is so precious Monica!! I love his cute little hat and I nearly died laughing seeing him in that happy dance pose!!

    Love the quote. So many times I see grumpy looking people in public and I just give them a big old smile and I usually get one back. What a great feeling!!
