Tuesday’s Display Chain

Misi at 1890 Gable House Musings is hosting a Display Chain each Tuesday.  This week’s topic is “Think ‘Only You’ Could Love”.

(We were asked to share a display based on an item that “you feel ‘only you’ could love”. Something you might have just recently acquired or something you have had forever.  A  piece that makes you smile amongst your primitives.  ANYTHING you wish to show your appreciation for, but feel that perhaps nobody else would understand that appreciation.)
As my children were growing up they often made gifts for me that maybe did not fit into my decor, but I displayed them proudly because I cherished the gift and the giver.  Now, as a grandmother, I find from time to time I have the privilege of displaying a gift made by a grandchild that may not fit into my Primitive decor – but again I display it proudly because I cherish the gift and the giver.

So this week my display contains a gift my nine year old granddaughter made for me at summer camp.  It is a lovely flower arrangement, in a flower pot that she painted just for me.  It may not be Primitive but it “makes me smile when displayed amongst my Primitives”.

I hope you have something that you display just because you cherish it - just because it makes you smile.


Be sure to visit 1890 Gable House Musings and check out Misi’s display, along with the others who are participating in this week’s Tuesday Display Chain.

(Also, be sure to read my Giveaway post and participate if you would like to.)

Oh Sue! Your arrangement makes me smile too! There is nothing that i appreciate more than my children's art. I can see how much love went into your grand daughters arrangement and how it makes you smile from the way you have it lovingly displayed. BEAUTIFUL!

I am the same way, I love when my kids make me something and I totally don't mind it not fitting in with my prim decor! I have my whole computer room dedicated to it! Thanks for sharing!
