Victorian Children, Angel leading the heavenly choir, and Renoir








I wanted to share with you my collection of Victorian Children pictures that I have hanging throughout my home. I have always been drawn to these prints of rosy-cheeked children and the innocence of childhood on their sweet faces. The next to last picture is actually a card I received from a friend. The little angel is leading the heavenly choir of bluebirds. The last picture is by Renoir, and it is called "Dance at Bougival". It is my favorite Renoir painting, so romantic, and hangs in my living room. Thanks for stopping by today. I love having company. Vicki

These paintings are so beautiful, I remember having a couple similar years ago, only prints of I believe Pinky and Blue Boy I think they were called. I have no idea where they went.

How very cute! I remember my grandma had a picture of two little children with a guardian angel at the edge of a cliff. I loved that picture as a child, now unfortunately I don't know where it is...

Thanks for visiting me over at Sweeter Living!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hello Vicki, My mother has a chromolithograph of the top print that you have and I have a chromo of the second print that you have. We both share the same taste in pictures. What a lovely display.....
