Child's work.............




I'm in the process of cleaning out closets and painting the inside of them. While cleaning out the hall storage closet today, I ran across two wonderful treasures. This turkey and pumpkin, made out of brown grocery sacks, stuffed with newspapers and painted, the turkeys feathers, head and feet are cut and colored out of construction paper and stapled on the sack. Our son, Gordon, made these treasures when he was 10 years old and in the 5th grade. Gordon is now 41 years old. I can see remember day he came out of school 31 years ago with these two treasures he had made for mom and dad. He was so very proud of himself and, of course, I was very proud of him. We proudly displayed these two items for everyone to see. I used them all through his school years, each October and November, and even a few years after he left home for his travels and work with the Air Force. Then they were put in storage on the top shelf in the closet and mostly forgotten about, until today. They bring back so many memories, some happy, some sad. Well, this year they are going to be the center of our decorations during October and November. I Love these treasures as only a mother would, made out of Love from her child.

Blessings,
Barbara

As soon as the chilly winds Abercrombie Polos initially start to blow every year as autumn sets in; people go to their closets Abercrombie Polos and pull out their sweaters dog coats and ed hardy Hats jackets to ensure that they are comfortable as the temperature drops. Your Ed Hardy Sale dog deserves this equal treatment so when you pull out yours, do Ed Hardy Sale remember to pull out your dog's warm dog clothes as well.If the night is chilly, but Ed Hardy Swimwear not quite freezing, even something as Ed Hardy Swimwear simple as a warm dog sweater will help you to keep your dog warm.
