~The Confidence~
James Tissot
You can tell more about a person 
by what they say about others 
than you can by what others say 
about them.

Dreams of your smile,
And while thinking of you,
Thinks that life is worthwhile,
So whenever you're lonely,
Remember it's true
Is thinking of you.

~Romeo & Juliet~
Sir Frank Dicksee

Never give up if you still want to try,
Never feel bad if you just want to cry,
Never let go if you want to hold on,
Never say that you're right when you know that you're wrong,
Never forget, but always forgive,
Never be afraid of the life that you live,
Never fake a smile if you know it's not real,
Never be afraid to show how you feel.

~La Belle san Merci~

~La Belle sans Merci~
Sir Frank Dicksee
Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot,
who calls you back when you hang up on him,
who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat,
or will stay awake just to watch you sleep...
Wait for the boy who kisses you're forehead, 
who wants to show you off to the world 
when you're in sweats,
who holds your hand in front of his friends,
who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on.
One who is constantly reminding you 
how lucky he is to have you.
The one who turns to his friends and says, "that's her"...

~Musings of a Mother and Daughter~

~Mother and Child~
Jessie Wilcox Smith
My Oldest Daughter Lauren, has been Collecting Quotes and Poetry from many different resources for Quite Some time now. She has been Writing them all down in a Journal. They are Quotes that Inspire her, or Make her Laugh or about Love and relationships. I Love the Romantic in Her.
Just as Lauren loves Collecting Quotes and Poetry, I Love Collecting Beautiful Works of Art as well as Creating my Own Art. I have shared some of the Painting I collected on my other blog. It really has been a Labor of Love as Well as an Art History Lesson for me!
I Have Been Looking for Something that Lauren and I Could Do together, Create together for Quite some time now. Something we would Both Enjoy....It occurred to me, Thanks to Paula from Tattered Gold... Why not Combine Both together! So this Blog will be the Collaboration of Both of our Loves and Interests!

Have a Wonderful Day!

The Beginning

~I am too Positive to be Doubtful,
Too optimistic to be Fearful
And to Determined to be Defeated. ~
