on one of last weeks dreary days I came upon this day brightener in the parking lot. if you click on this photo it's easier to read the license plate.

The license plate complete perfectly the portrait of the owner of this little jewel!

ha, cute!
I like that a flower is perfectly placed on the gas panel.

Marlene said...

Very nice! Bet the owner would be fun to know.

bobbie said...

she knits, and decorates her car with daisies. I'll bet when she writes she dots her eyes with hearts or smiley faces. It's pretty cute though.

Ah that takes me right back to the day .. and a VW a friend had with those all over it ..

Alexa said...

Nice catch, Lily! We had a VW (a green one) decorated exactly like this back in the '60s/'70s.
I hope the owner doesn't knit and drive at the same time!

Priscilla said...

That's cheerful.

The owner must be a beautiful person on the inside too.

Delightful find ;-)
I'm reminded that I took photos of a car with colorful hand painted flowers, birds, and things a while back but I don't think I ever shared it. Perhaps I'll look through my archives.
Hugs and blessings,
