Sweet Violets Stationery

"I smelt the violets in her hand
and asked, half in words, half in signs,
a question which meant
Is love the sweetness of flowers?"

~ Helen Keller ~

Violets are starting to pop up through the grass.
My daughter's been gathering them in tiny bouquets.
We keep them in a special place, on a sunny windowsill. 
 Aren't those little bouquets the best?

Here are the free sources I used
to compose this stationery:

*The Graphics Fairy*
*Vintage Images*
*Altered Bits*
*Shadowhouse Creations*

Thank you!!

I'm linking up with
The Graphics Fairy's Brag Monday!

This stationery is free
for personal use ~ please enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
