Vintage Strawberry Tags

"Note on Kitchen Table"

I will be back soon to bake some bread,
But now I'm picking wild berries instead,
Out in the meadows, under the sun.
I know I'm leaving my work undone,
But the wind was soft on summer grass;
The trees stood up tall for me to pass;
And the blue sky smiled and bent down low.
So what could I do but laugh and go?

"Wild Strawberries"


Heavy the air with a fragrance rare,
Strawberries ripe in the meadow,
Luscious & red where the vines are spread
Thickly in sun and shadow.

Sweet Birds & Blossoms


"When April steps aside for May,
like diamonds all the raindrops glisten;
Fresh violets open every day:
To some new bird each hour we listen."


~ Lucy Larcom ~





Hope you enjoy these sweet little songbirds!
They are 3 postcard images from a set called
Birds and
Blossoms
, which are based on paintings by A.L. West.
I love them all ~ can't pick a favorite!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
