Today is our patron saint's day in Wales - St David's Day (Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant). And here are some of the little Welsh girls I have collected over the years celebrating their day. When I was at school we celebrated with an Eisteddfod - a day of music, singing, dancing and recitation competitions in the school hall. We didn't go to school dressed in traditional Welsh costume as children do these days, but I think my Mum did - here she is in about 1932 posing in the garden for her father's camera.
And here's a little card I made for Mum today. Realising I didn't have any daffodil stamps I put together a couple of Papertrey flower images stamped in the appropriate colours and hey presto! I added a little grass stamp for the leaves and now I think these could easily pass for daffodils - the national flower of Wales.
