Long Face Jumeau “Springtime Beauty”

Long face Jumeau springtime beauty

Good morning …….. and what an incredible gorgeous morning it is!     It’s a beautiful day today in Texas…….The sun is shining without a cloud in the sky……and speaking of sky,.. it’s a deep blue…………rarely do we get to see the sky so clear…..but after all the rain we had last week…..it seems to have cleaned the air……the pond is over flowing….again…. the grass has turned green overnight….and the birds……are  singing their songs…….

Oh how I love this time of year!!…….

Today I’m sharing my Springtime Beauty …..and she is a beauty indeed….She’s my  “Long Face Jumeau”….. a French Antique Reproduction Doll…..isn’t she breathtaking……

Hope you have a blessed day!!!  Take some time to step outside and enjoy the day that the Lord has made…….and it was made just for YOU!

The winter is past and gone……the season of singing has come!
