FUN MONDAY! What's your favorite art in your home?

Hosted by sayre smiles Go see all the other interesting submissions.
Brush off your interview skills. Talk to everyone who lives in your house. I want to know what their, and your, favorite piece of art is in your home. Photographs do not count. If there was a fire in your home, everyone would grab photographs, but what is the non-photographic piece of art you would grab on your way out - and why? (Edit: These don't have to be paintings - these can be wall hangings, statues, lumps of clay by your child, anything that is artistic expression of some kind EXCEPT photographs.)

I was in the quiet so I was not able to do the Family survey these are my choices.

I am an Artist. So this Fun Monday although late in my attendance could not be passed up.
This is the "Intercessor" It is bisk It is one of my works. The needlework around it is collected.

This art was made today with my 10 year old daughter. the cloak is reversible. I enjoyed our sewing lesson today. She too loves art like her mother and draws and created wonderful things.

This print pleases me "Home is the first school, Parents are the first teachers"

This is my favorite I think "solo flight" it is my life story in image. His eye has been on this sparrow.

This is one of my husbands mother's works. I have so many wonderful ones from her. She would argue that this is not one of her best. I think though it is one that I treasure most. She is a renowned local artist. I will try to ask her for the url for her site.

This is over my tub. An image of the memory of great comfort and security of my childhood dog who I loved. It is the ipitomy of the feeling with that animal.

This is a foot scrubber made by a very dear friend. Mary Margret, she is gone with God now. She passed two weeks after my daughter came home never getting to see her. She and I battled great wars overcoming our childhoods. (see other blog). She was found dead in her bed having lost the fight giving up on life. It is a reminder to me "How lovely are the feet of those..." She knew her Lord from our 8 years as best friends despite mans perversions of religion in her youth.

This is my Indian Wedding Dress, We had the wedding of my dreams at 23 years of marriage. We had this Doe skin dress created by a lovely artist.

These are things from my two trips to Russia. So many stories in this one image.

My favorite art is the thing I have yet to create. For it gives me passion and imagination.

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
