Fritz Baumgarten-Fun in the Sun

Fritz Baumgarten (1883 – 1966) was a German illustrator

Hoping You all had a nice 4th of July.Mine are always filled with memories of 4ths long ago with My daughters.
I have been seeing a few other bloggers posting these enchanting  little pics. I have loved, of these fairyland Characters.I finally Googled them.Fritz must have been a Man after My own heart.

                                                                                                                                                                    In the last couple of days when I wasn't babysitting ,I was making this "Tussie Mussie" for SOC...Summer of Color's 4th challenge.Make anything Your little heart desires in the arts with colors of pink,apple green  and pop of dark green. 

 Blessings to all of You.

I like the butterflies and little animals in these paintings, and also the tussie mussie holder you made.

I love those illustrations, too! Classic, enduring, and special! I sometimes use children's book art in my own mixed media pieces.

Cute tussie mussie!

Sending blessings from here on the farm.

The drawings of the pixies and fairies are lovely, I too like these sort of illustrations. They take me back to childhood days.
And your summer cone is very pretty.

Beautiful illustrations Denise. I hope you had a nice 4th of July. It was pretty dreary here, but at least it didn't rain. Another pretty tussey!

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
