Three Muses - Architecture and some of our own Architecture for our sweet Angel Renee....

Hi Everyone...I had to get inspired by one of the greatest cities for Architecture... Chicago....Every time I see the buildings there I am inspired to be an architect...but my world is in Picture books and that just might not work out....unless you want some hot pink and bright green buildings.....

So I pieced together a few of my favorite buildings from my last trip there and made this special postcard..........

Cole and I also did some Architecture today...if you call building a snow angel architecture...this one is dedicated to our sweet friend Renee...We are praying for you and want you to know that you are in our hearts and in our thoughts each day....so please everyone...say a little prayer for Renee....

Hugs
Diana




Renee...a special snow angel built for you by Cole and I and Minnie too...we love you!!!

Diana,
Love your postcard, but your snow angel was just glorious and your son's smile even more so!!! Wonderful photos, thanks for sharing!

Ces said...

That top picture looks like a picture of corn on the cob! Munch munch munch!

Now see, this is what makes you so special that Renee loves you. You are sweet and kind and generous. You teach your son Cole kindness and to think of others. You are a wonderful mother. You should have eight children, we need more children from mothers like you. Okay maybe not eight, maybe I don't know, it's none of my business but you are a gvery good mother. Cole is so cute. Please kiss his cheeks for me. Tsup! Tsup!!!

Awesome architecture! Beautifully presented.

Diana Evans said...

Hi Sweetie pie CES!!! you know today was one of those days when I sat down in my studio all alone and asked myself if I was a doing a good job at being a Mom and then I get a message like that from you....tears in my eyes...you always know just what I need to make my day brighter ....you are like a gift from heaven my sweet friend...thank you for always lifting my spirits!!! hugssssssssss

and I will kiss Cole's cheeks when I check on him in his bed...he is my little angel and I am always proud of the little things he wants to do for people...

Hugsssssssssssssssssssssssssss
Diana

Ces said...

Diana, if you are not a good mother, that handsome son of yours will not be smiling spontaneously for the camera. He may not even pose. Even if you force him or threaten him, children will not look naturally happy if they mother stinks and you definitely do not stink. You smell like a sweet red rose, maybe yellow or whatever color but I can only conclude that your mothering is reflected on Cole's smiles. Tsup!

Why do I sound like I know everything? I don't. But I was once a kid and I always remember smiling because I had a wonderful mother.

Tweet tweet!

Wonderful postcard. I love visiting Chicago also.
Cole is such a beauty! What a joy.

Diana Evans said...

Thank you CES!!! I guess I always want to make sure I am doing my very very best with him...I too remember my childhood with genuine smiles...thank you for getting me to remember ....and thank you for the rose comment......although I was all sweaty from working in the snow today....lol.....

Hugs
Diana

What a wonderful tribute to our Sweet Renee may she rest in peace. This is wonderful. I know that you and Bella and Ces where so close to her and no doubt this has effected you too. My heart still aches. I can't believe it still. I pray that God will comfort all of our aching and breaking hearts.

She is amazing Diana. We all felt so special with Renee around. Each one of us was someone to her and I miss that.
I am inspired by her ways and the grace with which she moved through life.
Thank you for being my friend!

CUTE snowman!!! I love the kit you made for him..eye's, nose, scarf etc..perfect Diana and I adore Chicago..it's far to busy for me down on land, but it is in the air that I look and am amazed at how tall the buildings are!!!

Bella Sinclair said...

Awwwww, look. You have TWO lovely snow angels. One has that gorgeous smile and twinkly eyes, and one has wings for our beautiful Renee. This is so very sweet.

Very cool buildings, Diana!

I never not was in U.S.A., BUT i can admire this great beautiful american world through Tv or Internet, and I can to say that this Earth is so wonderful! I like Chicago, there live our family old friends, we have more photos from Chicago.
Diana, your postcard is like something from my the best dreams, - very kind and so sweet!!! ;)
Cole with Snowman, looks like actors from the cartoon, (maybe you know)- "The Snowman" from 1982.
Have a nice day!!!
