happy valentine's day

Happy Valentine's Day from your favorite colonial, revolutionary couple: John & Abigail Adams. Aren't they splendid? I scored these from the Habitat ReStore a month or so ago; at first, I wasn't sure that this was John Adams at all but perhaps a wily George Washington. A bit of online research of the artist confirmed that I had indeed picked up the right gentleman and that I now owned a hilarious set of portraits of one of history's most romantic, practical & brave couples.

Spread the love, today, folks. Spread it around.


  1. Just look at those eyes...they burn right through you.

    1. HA! I just gasped out loud at that. You're right, they sure are piercing.

  2. Their farm was named "Peacefield." I just love that name...
