I have a really large Cassatt print that I fell in love with 20 years ago. She is one of my favorite artists.
Wouldn't it be such fun if we could all meet up together to shop and talk?! I hope Carrie's sale is a success. Heck, I hope MINE will be, too! LOL
Happy Mother's Day to you. ~ Sue

One of my favorites too! We have a print hanging in our dining room that I've had for probably 20 years. Just can't part with it.
