Some of My Favorite Art

This cross was made by my great grandmother (Cora Ray) over 100 years ago. She took rose stems and twisted them and pinned them onto the wood which is covered with black fabric. I found this outside in my grandfather's shed. No one had claimed it after he had passed, so my Maw-Maw told me to take it. They were going to throw it in the garbage.

My little sister Morghan painted this for our tropical bedroom. Pretty awesome especially for a 13 year old! She gave this to us for Christmas. Once we get the bedroom sheet rocked and painted I'll hang it up.

Mom brought this drawing back from New Orleans for me.

This was given to us from some friends that lived in Tulsa, Ok. The man's wife had traveled somewhere over seas and purchased this years ago.
