little "sitting room" with enough
room for a small love seat and
the kids toys and books are
As you walk into the room there is
an odd little "corner".
Give me a corner and I see
storage and surfaces to decorate.
Thus, the little built in.
This is just at the end of our foyer
before you head into he main part
of the house.
The one wonky cattail sticking out of the
has to go!
I just plunked it in there and now I
But -to the right is what I
want to show you today.
This is what is in that little niche.
The painting on top is one
MyHero bought in 1979
when our youngest son was born.
It is by a WI artist, Robert Lardinois (Bob).
It has seen at least a dozen different homes
that we have lived in
and the frame has lots of nicks.
I could paint it but, like me,
it is showing its age-
and that's okay.
The slate on the bottom is one I painted
back in the early 80's..
That was during my "folk art" period.
But what I really want you to see is
Isn't she just precious?
Can you see the name JOY printed on the base?
In front of her stands a
German paper mache turkey.
He belonged to hubby's grandmother Clara.
This is another one of her turkeys.
He is VERY HEAVY clay.
He is PERFECTLY imperfect.
His legs won't support him anymore so he has
a paper base. I suppose I should
cover it with leaves.
Speaking of turkeys....
No - I am NOT posting a picture of
MyHero dressed up as a gobbler-
although that WOULD BE funny!
Hmmm...Now there's a thought for a
Halloween costume for him!
No- SweetCheeks asks me every year
where HER turkey is.
He's right there on the window ledge that
separates the little sitting area from the
Now THIS Ladies & Gennelmun
is THE most
I have EVER seen!
Now if you are easily offended
you might want to sign off right here.
Well....I am going to show you a butt!
And because we all KNOW that
SweetCheeks loves saying BUTT
I am going to show you
And THAT, my friends
is the BUTT of the turkey featured above.
He moons me every time I go up the stairs.
I have SO MUCH MORE
Fall Decorating to show you.
I could do more pictures but
you know how I like to talk!
Yep- You'll just have to come back
to see more!
Ummmm--dare I say it?
3 months till Christmas.
