Making Music with Old Frames

Somebody spent hours making these pretty doilies. At one time it was very popular to frame your handiwork.
Although the doilies are very pretty what caused me to buy these were the beautiful picture frames. And paying just a few dollars made it even better. Home they came.

I pulled the doilies off the board they had been tacked to and then ran to the piano bench. I had hit the mother load of vintage sheet music a few months ago and picked these little pretties to place in the frames.
I can't wait to take them up to the Shabby Old House.
I think they will look perfect there.

Missing my Daddy

I am missing my daddy tonight.
Each year as people start to talk about Sept. 11th and the horrors of that day I am reminded once again of how that day kept me from my Father's funeral. I was afraid to travel. I didn't want to leave my home. I was afraid to travel by car or by plane . I didn't feel safe. Nobody did.I knew what safe felt like because of my dad. I felt safe in his arms.
I rested in them often. I snuggled often in his embrace. I was my daddy's girl and
He was my super hero.

I'm missing my daddy tonight.
