Art Love Treasures

This is an awkward shot of my kitchen wall. (Sorry about the glare, this is the best I could get.) In this photo you can see a ceramic cross, a plaque that says, "You are the Best Mother in the Universe!"
a drawing Emily did of our family when she was 4 years old. And a Eric Carle, project Annie made for Fathers Day when she was 5 years old. Emily's original Artwork has been replaced by this piece as the first one faded (watercolors). Annie's Artwork has always been in this frame.

My girls are now 20 and 18.

I also have several art pieces such as clay objects, baby food jar art and such, gathered around the house.
At Christmas, alot come out and are proudly displayed on the tree or around the home.

These are my favorite kinds of artwork. Stuff made from the heart. Full of love. They bring me incredible joy.

I also am big on home-made cards.

My home screams, I love my kids. From the photos, to the Art Treasures. My home feels and speaks of Love.

I feel pretty Blessed.

Reminds me of my home with all of the creations from my daughter over the years. Very special indeed. Thanks for sharing this.

Love the images and your post, but the best thing was the juxtaposition of the cute things your kids made and the song "I wanna be sedated." That is one of my very favorite songs ever.

You're so funny, Janis!
