Show & Tell Friday for March 14
Well, better late than never. I'm going to attempt to put up a short post for Show & Tell Friday. I still have a few items to share from different walls in my home. These are from the master bedroom.
This painting was given to us as a wedding gift. We were acquainted with a lovely elderly couple in the church we were attending at the time. The husband had a hobby of making picture frames from old barn boards, and he showed us a number of paintings he had framed and had us choose one. We chose this one depicting the shore of a pond because it reminded us of the view from the cottage where we had spent our honeymoon.
This lace wall hanging was purchased by dear friends of ours when they visited Lancaster County, PA. They knew this Bible verse -- "This is the day which the LORD hath made: we will rejoice and be glad in it" (Psalm 118:24) -- is one of my favorites. The colors go perfectly in our bedroom.
This adorable Holly Pond Hill card was sent to me by one of our daughters. I love the way it depicts the mother and daughter rabbits having tea together and sharing such a good time. It reminds me of time that my daughter and I spent together at a very special tearoom when I visited her in South Carolina.
And last, here is one of my few attempts at quilting. I made this sunflower mini quilt from directions in an old issue of Country Woman magazine. The sunflower's center is made from an assortment of buttons in different tones of brown.
