What Does Abe Lincoln Have to do With Violets?

The answer to that question is absolutely nothing except that I found this ATC of quilled violets I created a few years ago and thought I would share it along with an Abe Lincoln quote that spoke very strongly to me today. Enjoy!


Determine that the thing can and shall be done and then . . . find a way. ~Abraham Lincoln

Hey there Kellie! Thank you for coming to visit! And your studio is under renovation as mine is. I know exactly what I want in mine.....white walls, while whispy drapes with a touch of vintage gold accents here and there. A white settee is coming in 8 weeks and my harp is a light wood with a gold crown. A white marble fireplace is the focal point, so really all we need is to complete the two new rooms, get my husband's metal desk out of here and I am set!!! Do please let us know what your ideas are and then we can chime in our opinions and then go from there! It is always fun to do that!!!
