Show and Tell Friday

Happy Friday everyone~ I am joining Cindy at My Romantic Home today for "Show and Tell Friday." I love Cindy's blog and hers was the first blog I discovered. It is still one of my favourites!

For my post today I would like to share the farm I made for my father. I'm sorry to those of you who have seen this in my last post.

My Daddy always loved farms, especially red barns, so I made this ceramic farm for him. I had made the barn and silo first and gave it to him for Christmas one year. Then I made the farm house for Father's Day and finally the old mill for his birthday.

When he passed away, my mother gave it back to me and I have incorporated it into my Christmas village which I have all along the ledge in the Family room.
Whenever I set the farm out for Christmas, I always think of him. I really do miss him, especially this time of year. He always made Christmas magical in our home when I was growing up and I have such wonderful memories.

Please take some time to visit Cindy today and check out her wonderful Friday post and all her participants. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will come again soon.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi
