I love the memories that are brought to mind when I’m ‘spring’ cleaning. This very special wall plaque has been hanging in the entrance of our house for about fifteen years. I ordered it at a folk art/country craft party and didn’t realize until years later that behind the scenes it was painted by my lovely and talented friend Teresa, who I had not yet met at the time. I recall asking the hostess if a bigger wooden house with extensions for an extra string of little people was available……should nature be kind enough to surprise me with more children……but ‘eight is enough’ was meant to be. Families are indeed forever – and I will always treasure this precious heirloom.
