Another beautiful find...

I feel that it was meant for me to go through everything this summer.  I have unearthed some of the most precious things.  This portrait is one that my mother sketched quickly of my sister about 45 years ago.  She was so talented.  In the background is a portrait of my daughter with Issac Stern, a copper lustre pitcher, a book of Robert Burns Poems in the original book jacket and a small cast iron bank that belonged to my Uncle who died at the age of 3 of scarlet fever.  Behind each item is a story to be told.  I need to get into my studio again.  I can see the surface of the press bed again.

I love that you save so many treasures. I wish more people did that nowadays. :)
