i bought these 3 hooked sunflowers at a garage sale for 4.00 so that started me on redoing the shelf... the picture my auntie mary made and gave us for our wedding in 1980, its beautiful and i love it even more these days... and the steiff bear was my grandfathers when he was a young boy, of course i may tweak the shelf a bit more (paint sunflower stands..) but for now it holds lots of treasures! both old and new! (the little box isnt nearly as bright as the picture..)
this area under the upper balcony and where i hang the doves, is outside the breakfast nook. this is where mom and her siblings had their sand box and use to play for hours and grandma probably in the kitchen and grandpa probably here in the den, could listen to their children playing and having fun.
look really close, you can see that sally girl found a shady spot behind the bleeding heart to rest! enjoy your day! jody
