#JusJoJan

Day is done…I must get out of the January Dumps. So here I am for the January Challenge. The prompt today is, “Phantom”. When I hear that word, I think of “Phantom of the Opera” yes the musical. This is from my old day’s of when I wore the hat of Musical Theatre Mom. It was a fun time of life for me and yes I do miss it. Also a great musical for sure, one of my fav’s. Happy Friday and let’s hope we don’t get a snow storm next week. I mean we’ve come this far with nary a flake of snow, so know you don’t get to make up for lost time next week. Snow go away.

Happy Good Friday

AtoZ today is the letter

I have picked out 3 paintings for today’s post…I told you at the start I would have no trouble with finding an original painting for each letter in the AtoZ Challenge.

My first choice is the painting titled, “Boots” I really love this one because I see a passion in his work… He has always had an amazing work ethic and this painting has that certain feeling to it … He has always been an extremely hard worker, he just doesn‘t quit and quite frankly that is why he had me at, “Hello” <3 .

Boots

My second choice is one of the Artist’s favorite thing to paint and that is the Beach…I’m sure that is where his heart lives and breathes…

The Beach

The third choice for the letter “B” is going to be, “Boat”. I have named this boat, “The Tradewinds”…

ANOTHER WINTER STORM

Today I’m doing nothing !!! It’s my day off and it looks like I’ll be doing nothing this weekend too. Yes another winter storm is on the way. Which okay, I’ll sleep in tomorrow and it will be a cooking day (Lasagna Soup) and playing with my planner for the weekend. I was just looking at my treasures and I thought I would share them with you.

My first one is my Barometer…I absolutely love, love, love this. This was my grandmama’s and my mom made sure I got it b/c she knows what a weather geek I am. It works too, which is really cool. It’s got to be over 100 years old.

My next treasure is this cross. This too was my grandmama’s. It hangs in the my room right by the door. It slides open where you can keep some holy water. It is safe with me <3 .

My third treasure are these tiny, little tea dishes. I don’t know why, but I have always loved them <3 .

Tiny Tea Dishes

It’s not always about how much money someone leaves you when they pass over. In fact these items are priceless to me. I thought about what I would sell these for if they had any monetary value, and I wouldn’t sell them ever. <3 Happy Friday and be safe out there in all that snow… Oh I’ll take pics of the snow and keep you posted on the storm.

One last treasure that she has entrusted me with. This was a prayer missal that she kept from her 1st love, “Louie <3 .” He lost his life tragically before they were married, so I’m honored to keep it safe for her.
