Norman Rockwell

Mornin'!!! Hope everyone is doing well today!! I had a great time with my mom yesterday in Brevard, NC. It's such a cute little town with lots of shops and restaurants. Yesterday was the National Day of Prayer so we stopped in the center of town to say a little prayer with a big group of people. That was nice! Then we had lunch and walked through some shops including a huge antique mart. It had 3 stories and I had the time of my life looking at every single thing in there!! I think what I liked seeing the most was all of the Norman Rockwell magazines or books or paintings. I absolutely love Norman Rockwell's work. I thought I would share some of my favorites with ya'll today.

"Sport" I love this one and I want to get it framed for my husband. He loves fishing and I think this is so cute!


"Airplane Ride"

"Marriage License"

"Going, Coming"



Do ya'll have a favorite Norman Rockwell picture??


  1. my two faves are "a day in the life of a girl" and "girl at mirror" (which i have framed and hanging in my bathroom)!

  2. "A Day in the Life of a Girl" is my absolute favorite. I have it hanging in our guest room. But I seriously love them all!

  3. I haven't thought about Norman Rockwell in a long time, so thanks for the post! I remember sitting in my uncle's country cafe when I was a kid and admiring all of Norman's paintings on the wall. They are great.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Sounds like you had a great day with your favorite painting is Sport as well...regards from rainy and cold Chicago(it's May and I still have the heating on :((( !!!!Dee

  5. I love all of these! The "sport" painting would be such a nice gift for your husband. I think my favorite is "Begging". Have a great weekend!


  6. I can't say I have a favourite because I love them all! They are timeless classics! When I was a child, our family doctor had a series of them all over his office and when I see any Norman Rockwell, I am instantly transported back to my youth, a little girl waiting in his office!

  7. I love all of the paintings, I couldn't pick just one over the others. It sounds as though you had a lovely day with your Mom.

  8. My fave is of a little boy and girl sitting on a bench with their backs to me...I used to have a clock with it on it and my old college roommate stole it from me! GRRRRR! I wish I could find something with that same pic on it!!!!
