Hello Friends, I hope you all hare having a great week and are keeping warm with this sudden change in weather. We are going to share a couple oils of children we have in our collection. I must apologize for the photos they are grainy. They were painted from the turn of the 19Th to about 1920's.

This one is cute because the boy is telling his sister or friend a secret. And I like the way the little daisy's are painted all over the field beneath their feet.

This pair of children seem to be playing near a pond and of course the boy being a boy, poking a stick at the poor little turtle. While the little girl seem to have her arms in the air telling him to leave the poor thing alone.

This is a cute little painting with these two children watching a ship sail by as they stand on the ocean coast.

Maybe you can see the ship better with this photo. Well I hope you enjoyed the paintings and please see the other post if you get a chance to. Today I will be joining in over at ~ Common Ground ~ for ~ Vintage Inspiration Friday ~ and also for ~ Show And Tell Friday ~ I hope you all have a good weekend treasure hunting and wish you lot of luck.....Julian & Ray
