my little sunshines

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It's what sunflowers do. ~Helen Keller

If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom. ~Terri Guillemets

I'd rather have {sunflowers} on my table than diamonds on my neck. ~Emma Goldman

I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.
~Claude Monet

Every friend is to the other a sun, and a sunflower also. He attracts and follows. ~Jean Paul Richter

I am working with the enthusiasm of a man from Marseilles eating bouillabaisse, which shouldn't come as a surprise to you because I am busy painting huge sunflowers. ~Vincent Van Gogh, letter to his brother

I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it. ~Groucho Marx

I love my darling and beautiful (inside and out) friend Tamara, who took all these pictures, and had this fun idea.
The girl's shirts are from our close friends in Hungary, the Mecseri's. (Can you believe they still fit?)
