I have art in my home for my girls and 1 boy. The art portrays girls doing things or symbolizing virtues that I want to instill in them, and boy art with the same idea. People always comment on how powerful the art is when they walk into our home.

I learned to like her artwork MANY years ago as covers on Good Housekeeping magazine.

I will say I didn’t like it as much as I had hoped —there weren’t enough pictures! But they certainly lived fascinating lives!

The large one has hung in my daughte Winter’s bedroom for several years.

I also have two other Jesse Willcox Smith pieces framed in my house. One is a boy and girl in a library, and it hangs in my library. The other is a little girl looking at a starry sky.

I’m going to be moving the two ones with little girls into the other girls’ room soon.

One of my favorite things my mother did was to ask us to write stories about what was happening in the paintings… I can still fall into the world behind a piece of art.

My mom always bought the CBC’s book week poster, and we had a rotating cast of those up as well. They are awesome:
