Special Tulips


When Bob and I started the clean out
of our attic last Saturday...
and it is not done yet. 
So much more to go through.


Any hoot, these tulips were found in one
of the zillion boxes I have up there.


I was so thrilled to find these!
Why you ask?
Well because my dad made these.


He and I back in the 80's did the craft show circuit.
He made wood crafts, while I made my fabric ones.
We did Spring, Autumn and Christmas ones.
My dad passed in 1993.
So this was a great find as I forgot my mom 
even gave me these a long time ago. 


I originally had nothing in my wax sealers.
My dad's tulips make my display even better now.


This is now my daily view while I work from home.
Even though the tulips are not blooming 
yet outside here,
they are blooming inside...
and oh how they make my heart sing!

Have you ever made a discovery
that made your heart sing?

Special Tulip Blessings To All!
Janice

  7. I love these! And so much more special because he made them. I'm glad they are still with you. I felt that way when I found my grandmother's locket. A big smile of joy.
