  1. Don't you love to find something and then go to look up any info and actually find something? That just thrills me to death!

  4. Very lovely painting - I always try to place a few flowers in my little cream jugs or gravy boats - otherwise they sit around looking forlorn! Anna is new to me too - so many fabulous artists are missed unless we just happen upon a piece of their art. The best painters are not always hanging in the big, famous galleries and museums of the world!

    Happy weekend - thanks for sharing your find.

  5. Just this last week I was reminiscing about the coffee-grinder time I shared with my father when I was small. He placed his hand over mine as we ground the beans for my parents' morning drink. It was hard work, but bonding time. ;)

  6. What a beautiful painting! And I love it that it includes a very nostalgia-evoking item (for me) - the coffee grinder!

  10. Such a sweet painting Joy ... love the simplicity of it. Glad you were able to research her. So many signatures are impossible to read, therefore unable to research.
    Thanks for sharing.
    I really appreciate your visit to Timeless Treasures and sweet comment.
    Hugs,
