Be Thankful!! - Family Love

Thanksgiving: Have you every really thought why we should be happy and thankful... every day. First: Family Love, well if you don't have this little gem... you have started on the wrong path. I think this a first step for your health, attitude, and what you make of your self. I have had my share of set backs, bad days, serious issues, just as every one else. But I always have had a great family, the Lord, by birth and marriage, and friends. They help pick you up and dust you off... so you can get back on track.
I have been picked up several times and dusted off, but look at me now.. an successful folk artist. (didn't see that But loving it and knowing it started with "FAMILY LOVE"
So be Thankful today.. for we are all Blessed!

Doswell, Virginia - Christmas Show 2010

This is the first ornament for the 2010 season. First the bird is a hand carved piece I purchased from Will and Kay Studio. It is covered in vintage patterns, with the wings made of vintage music sheets. The block is covered in 1890's ephemera.
The new design ornaments came out for the Christmas season at the Virginia Show in Doswell, Virginia. Nice area with a lot of great vendors. (I've never been so far from home!!)
