Mrs. Mary's Luncheon

"Mrs. Mary's Luncheon"

Last fall we found some great old scrapbooks at an estate sale. One of them was from a Women's Civic Club from the 1920' includes all the handwritten programs, handpainted placecards for every luncheon, printed invitations, the guest lists....Charming ephemera!

I have included some of this on my newest painting. Notice how well the wax monogram has held up...and to think when I found this scrapbook, it was outside, at the bottom of a box, in the drizzle rain and it was at the most 20 degrees!

This painting little work of art is available on my website now. If you haven't's up and running...wayward son made it back to school and updated my site!
