Show and Tell Friday


Show and Tell
Recently I started reading Kelli's blog, "There's No Place Like Home" where she hosts "Show and Tell Friday". This is when you share a photo of something you have in your home or garden, and it is my first time to participate.

Since the weather has been so incredibly "wintry" the past few months, this painting seemed appropriate to share. It was done by my mother's great aunt, Pearl Collins, and given to Mom and Dad as a wedding gift, 47 years ago last month. It is still in the original frame with the paper backing and wire hanger.

According to my Aunt Janet, Aunt Pearl's paintings were greatly treasured by the recipients. No matter where we lived, Mom had this painting hanging on the wall. I only display it during the winter, but I love it as much as Mom did, and I was happy I could bring it to my home after Mom passed away.
