Hello everyone. I have been busy painting again today. I have finally gotten the first coat on the bathroom walls. It was a chore with my sore shoulder and weak arms but I got it done; one more coat and then the wallpaper goes on.... Can't wait to be finished!

I have a couple of items that hold sentimental value for me besides my dishes and my wall hanging.

The hand made green taffeta gown and bonnet I wore as a flower girl when I was 4 years old. They hang from a pretty shelf in the bedroom. I still remember that day because it was one of the few times in my life I ever felt like a princess! I remember walking down the isle holding a white wicker basket full of flowers in my little gloved hands.

Then there is my Daddy's violin. He gave it to my middle son when my son was in the school band. My son left it with me for safe keeping until he settles into his own place. My Daddy passed away thirteen years ago so it means a lot to have it hanging in the room where I can enjoy it.

My father never did master the violin very well but I look at it with fondness as I recall listening to him play in the evenings after supper. To those of you who still have your fathers, I pray you will cherish them because they won't be here forever.
Enjoy your evening everyone ~
