New Mommy Art

I've just recently discovered the art of Kate Greenaway.  She has a lot of illustrations that are lovely, but I think my favorites are her paintings and drawings of little girls.  This one reminds me of today's outing to a friend's house for a tea party.  Cara primped and sipped tea with two of her lovely friends.  The boys stuffed their faces quickly and escaped to make car noises.

Girls Tea party - Kate Greenaway


  1. Beautiful. I have dreams of days like that . . . then the car noises bring me into reality!

  2. I'm so glad I saw this! My mother-in-law has had a few much-loved Kate Greenaway plates on her wall for many years, but I didn't know anything about her. (I just recognized the name from seeing it on the plates all those years.) I'm going to have to do some more research on Kate Greenaway--maybe this will help me solve the annual Christmas gift dilemma. Kate Greenaway prints, perhaps?
