I knew I couldn't let them stay so exposed, and since the two pieces I found were two of my favorites, it became a mission to find a place to hang them in our home. I've always loved using our children's creations from school. In Charlotte, Eldest's pieces of art were all over the walls of our kitchen. They were special to her, and precious to us. Now two hang on the wall next to her Daddy's desk~mission accomplished!
They were in dire need of a frame upgrade, so I mentally cheered when I remembered the silver frames we had from Japan. I thought it was a nice way to add a modern touch to traditional pieces. Husband would appreciate this since his tastes run more contemporary. I even flipped Eldest's living room study of shadow and light on its side. I thought it was a quirky, fun way to display the piece.
This morning I can't help but sit back and look on these art works by my daughter with great fondness. Being in 7th grade, she now brings home essays, papers, and computer projects. Art projects seem to be a thing of the past. It's a blessing to still have a little one that is bringing home his own masterpieces. I suppose my next mission will to find a place to hang a few of his as well, and it's one mission I'm happy to accept.
Have a lovely weekend, all. Take care!
