Several images, not just this one.

I will be out of state next weekend on a family visit, so the last issue of this series will be two weeks from today. After that, I have a new series for the summer which I think you will like just as much. Going to be fabulous judging by the images I already found and I have only casually looked around at this point.

Please click through and check it out. Gorgeous if I do say so myself. And should you be interested in supporting and can support my work please check what’s available at various levels. But my work here, on twitter, pinterest and Facebook will always be free. Only other part that isn’t are the books which are on Amazon under Sarah B. Guest Perry. Thank you! Sarah.
