Jessie Wilcox Smith, born in 1863, was an artist who often illustrated for Good Housekeeping magazine. I know her for her lovely images of children, and have several books containing her work. This was a vintage image from the year 1918 that I found online. I framed it with a doily, adding a paper flower and a frilly bow to mimic the little girl's dress; she reminds me so much of my sister Nancy. This is another entry for Betsy Veldman's Vintage Findings challenge. In case you haven't noticed, I'm really enjoying this!
