100 followers :: a download for you

I'm at 100 followers in exactly 81 days...woot, woot... and I'd like to share the quote I shared with you earlier today. 

When I saw the free printable ornate scroll frame I used for this quote at The Graphics Fairy the other day, I quickly went through my notebook full of the inspiring quotes I've collected and created this little printable. 

Here's mine framed in our sunroom. The yellow wall used to be the outer wall of our house until we turned the concrete pad into this room. There are french doors at the two long ends {to the left and right} of the room and the wall across from the yellow wall has 7 floor to ceiling windows looking down on the creek that runs through our property. I often photograph projects propped on our dining room table and this sunroom is the room you see peeking from behind the photographed projects.

The piece of art perched on the library clock hung above my Oma's and Opa's dining room table since I can remember. When I look at it I recall being squished and smooshed onto a banquette with my brother and 3 cousins as the adults sat in the chairs around the smallish table. I feel very lucky to have this little piece of them and think of really precious memories each time I see it.


The print hanging on the wall to the left of the clock is of Rothenburg o.d. Tauber in southern Germany. There's a spot seen in the print where I had my photo made, which happened to be Mother's Day, and my Mom was with me in Wuerzburg for a visit with my Aunt and it is on this day that she found out she would become an Oma for the first time. I was pregnant with Zach. And he will be gifted this art print when he moves to his own home one day.

    I too have a notebook filled with my collection of inspiring quotes (and phrases & words).
