The Art of Gratitude (and Giveaway Announcement)

What to do to preserve the beauty of these tiny jewels?
Just press them...


... and let them bring cheer along with your gratitude to someone special!



Is there a more precious, yet simple way to say 'thank you'?

I also meant to say I'm painting something special for you! Will have one of my original watercolors ready for a 'Thank- you-give away' soon, so stay tuned!
Linking this post to White Wednesday, thank you Kathleen!
Have a wonderful day,
Monica x

  17. My daughter presses all of her four leaf clovers (she finds them so easily - unlike me! lol). I love pressing flowers... when you "rediscover" them, they bring back lots of joy!

  23. I love pressed flowers. My mother had several pressed in our family Bible when I was a kid. I used to examine them and imagine the special occasion that they were from.
