What Makes You Smile?

I am a sunflower nut. They make me smile. I love their colour and the way they turn towards the sun. Have you noticed my banner? That sunflower hangs in one of our hallways.

I have to control myself when I see anything with sunflowers, but here are a few sunflowers that always brighten my day, summer and winter.


A spot to drop keys etc...

I love sunflowers, too! Hence the name Sunny. Yours are beautiful! I have an idea in mind for a wallhanging sometime soon. I'll let you know if it works out! Thanks for sharing all your sunny flowers.

I love Sunflowers- they always make me smile with their happy faces. They are so rich in color.
You have some stunning sunflower pieces - I love your Puerto Vallerta plate and the glass piece that hangs in the window.
I have sunflower dishes and one of my favorite paintings is of course, Van Gogh's Sunflowers.
Regards,
Anna

You have collected some really nice sunflower objects. I especially love the red tin with sunflowers, and of course the red cup.
