It is that time again , time to enjoy all the goodies at Show and Tell Friday.
This may look like a ordinary wood frame that someone( me) has attempted to improve the look of this sad frame, by adding material. I love this frame. My aunt Toots ( don't you just love the name) gave this to me after I opened the shop. She said her boys had made it out of wood from the old chicken house. My first memory of the chicken house , was it being torn down. It had seen it's better days and brush had grown up in it and it was falling in. I was very young, alot of years ago. Who would have known I would get so excited about some wood from chicken house.
So this is not the only piece of wood I have. When teenagers burned the covered bridge on my road down, I drug a piece of smokin wood home to save. And when we was building our house, I wanted wood off the barn to use as trim. The tradition still lives in my house. And I think about my grandparents building that barn, to protect the animal from the cold and rain. They were farmers and lived off the land.
