I hope this post finds everyone well.It's rainin' cats n dogs here. But it sure was really warm earlier today. Supposed to get up into the low 70's on Thursday.Wish I had the day off to enjoy it ! sigghhh
I was hopin' to get this posted earlier but I worked today, then dinner, a lil time with the family and then I had ta finish up this lil item for the giveaway. My son helped with this one...He is 16 and usually is more into computer games or the xbox. Hes been learnin' ta sew some and he loves to draw up stuff for me to try n make.He drew me up a Christmas tree he wants me to make and it's got ALOT of turns lol.We'll hafta see if I can do it....(I think I can I think I can )We also grubbied some candles up tonight and for a first try they didn't turn out to bad.I will hafta get some pics of those for another post. So the next item for my blog giveaway is......
This 14" by 7" pillow tuck. I stenciled the front with paint and then dipped it in my grubbin' mixture. It smells sooooo yummy ! One of our dogs kept comin' in the kitchen sittin' by my feet lookin' up like...where's my bite of what ever that is lol. So without further ado here is the picture of it
Also wanna share this ol' charcoal drawing portrait that my Daddy gave to me awhile back. I look at it and wonder about this couples lives. It would be soooo interesting to know some of their history. I took the back off hopin' that there may be a name but there wasn't darn it.I think it's so important to preserve your family history so that it can be passed down from generation to generation. I have many a stories my Daddy has told over the years written down and I would love to record him tellin' 'em. His family grew up on a tobacco farm in Mount Vernon Kentucky and he moved to Southern Indiana in his teens. I love the values that he has taught me thru life and I know that those come from his humble upbringin'. Anyway sorry to get off topic soooo much lol. Here is the picture of the portrait
This picture is huuugggeeee and I jus' love it. Do ya'll ever look at an ol' item and wonder of the history of it ? Who's hands it's passed thru over time. Oh if only those ol' items could tell stories ! Be sure and check back tomorrow for item#3 Wishin' everyone a blessed night and hope your Wednesday is filled with sunshine !
