Fun Monday #21, Hangin' on the Wall
Todays Fun Monday is being hosted by mjd at Return of the White Robin. Her Challenge: show us something that hangs on your wall that is fun, interesting, endearing, sentimental, or otherwise enticing. Select the picture of Uncle Horace, Grandma Galt's needlepoint, or little Susie's first fingerpainting to show the blogging community.
There are so many things hanging on the walls of this home. Where to begin and where to end?
Just look at the crowded hallway!
I think I will zoom in a little closer on the drawing front and center. Our eldest, Karmyn, did this self-portrait when she was in first grade. We stuck it in a frame - thinking that we would eventually get a mat on it. It has hung without the mat for 30 years, but I'm sure I'm going to get around to it next week. I swear.
(Sorry, about smearing out her last name.... just some privacy requirements.)
Little did I know those many years ago how she would grow up to love working in her flower garden wearing blue jeans, red shirts, and matching high heels. However, I believe she changes into her garden boots when she hits the tomato and zucchini.
If you look further towards the end of the hall and down you will see a picture that Amanda drew for a wine label contest. She didn't win. But, the Winery plexi-glass framed her entry and sent it back with a consolation prize: a stuffed Micky Mouse that was bigger than she was.
As a 7-year old she knew the sun and rain were required to grow luscious grapes. The hands sized like the INCREDIBLE HULK must have been all the better to pick them. Or, maybe to squeeze one of her sister's necks. There was some of that going on when the three of them were on the grow. (and it does look like a menacing "sis" written in there, doesn't it?)
I'm sorry I don't have a drawing done by their other sister Jennifer. I do have her hands up!
Head over to MJD's and check out the side bar with all this week's participants. Fun Monday is always a good time!
