botanical prints

as i was cleaning out one of our closets (see #04), i was pleasantly surprised to find a series of four botanical prints that i completely forgot were in our possession. around about the same time i had been pondering what to do with a very large, empty wall in our bathroom. and, voila!

as i was hanging our 'newly found' art,
i never realized the 'trend' going on in our home. seriously. guess we kinda have an affinity for botanicals...four of these are hanging in our dining room, each representing a different month of the year...

and these hang above our bed, again a set of 4...

the intricacy is amazing and the handwriting is delicious. what's best is that each print hold's quite a special place in our hearts - they all came from Gammy, my husband's late grandmother. having the prints around kinda keeps her around too.

i plan to do a little research project on each set in the near future; i'd like find their origin(s) and history. i'll keep you posted.
