THE GARDEN OF EDEN.........................

Many, many years ago I purchased this painted floor cloth......I think all of you remember when they were all the rage.

At that time I decided to turn it into a work of it was much too beautiful to put on the floor and it would be destroyed if I did so.  Each time I look at still gives me the same thrill as the first day it came to us....and I am so glad I decided to use it as I did.

You really can make anything into a piece of art.....if it thrills you to the core....and you spend just a little time thinking about how you can use the piece....the solution will come to you and the piece will become one of your most prized treasurers.

I know this one has become one of ours.
On this Memorial Day....please remember....
