The designs in this Petites series revolve around some interesting quotations or phrases I discovered which seem to sum up each of the seasons quite nicely. Pretty borders and seasonal motifs complete the look, and each is framed in a painted moulding to add more seasonal color.
*Autumn is a time of harvest and gathering together. Edwin Way Teale, 1899-1980
*Winter: cold cozy nights, warm blankets and hot chocolate.
*Spring is when nature resumes her loveliness. Harriet Ann Jacobs, 1813-1897
*Summer: Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea. Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803-1882
