Show And Tell Friday

Kelli hosts a show and tell Friday. Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!

This hangs over my piano. It was a Christmas gift from my brother Mark and his wife. The sheet music is Amazing Grace. The name of our farm is Amazing Graze. Also, I attempted and plan on continuing to attempt to learn to play the fiddle.

That is nice. I didn't know that was from Mark. Keep up with your fiddle.

Tracy said...

Graet name for your farm! I wish that I could play ANY instrument!

ellen b said...

Perfect for your farm! Now when you learn to play that fiddle you'll have to share a video with us :)

Now that is a wonderfully thought out gift! Very clever farm name also!!

In answer to your question on my hydrangea post - it is the progression of color. They start off at the lighter color and go to the deeper color as they reach the end of their blooming!

I love the name for your farm!

When I was a kid, our farm was called Rocky Meadows farm!!(lots of rocks but lots of neat stuff too!)

I agree with ellen b. and I am awaiting the video.

I love that you grow as much as you can for you. We too are trying to do the same on a smaller scale!

Marci - In response to your comment on my Show & Tell. The opening is like an acordion and spreads out the wideth of the bag. When it is shut the top lid snaps and hold it in place.

That is beautiful! I think it's great that you are learning the fiddle.

My daughter plays in a bluegrass-Gospel group. She plays the lap dulcimer, banjo, guitar, mandolin, and is learning the fiddle, too! If she could, she'd play music 24 hours a day.
:-) It is truly a gift from God. I can only play very little on the piano. My left hand doesn't know what my right hand is doing.

Sounds great Marci...hey...I know...We should have you and Miss Ginny over sometime for a "crafting" afternoon. Where you could either sew, knit, crochet, etc. That would be so much fun!

SouthernBell said...

Love it, Marci. Thank you for dropping my blog, The Trad Pad. Love the picture. The movie, Amazing Grace, recently opened in Australia and I was there the very first night! It has such magnificent words and I am sure such the picture is a great aid to prayer.

Blessings and bliss

Clara....in TN said...

Love the picture, Marci. Keep on with the fiddle!!!!!

Lea said...

I love the picture! Amazing Grace is one of my favorite hymns also ..when I'm fiddling around...

Gina E. said...

Hi Marci,
Thanks for dropping by Patra's Other Place and admiring my art deco ornament. I love your painting - it has special meaning to me because I am a great fan of the Dutch violinist Andre Rieu. Have you seen him? I believe he is becoming very popular in the States now.

Paula said...

I've always wanted to learn the fiddle, as well. Keep trying...you'll get it one day! Lovely picture, too.
