~my Father~

I made this yesterday. I used scraps of wallpaper, 1930's sheet music, my grandmothers old glass glitter, 2 antique glass buttons, heart charm, French ribbon. This darling photo is of my father Samuel Brio as a small boy. It was taken in Italy, where he was born. I love this photo!

Dear Mary,
What a charming idea!! You are simply amazing:) Wouldn't it be sweet to make these little tags with a photo of each of your family members, then at xmas hang them on a small little pink tree:) It would be like having all our loved ones who have gone to heaven with us again...I may DO IT:) Thanks for the great idea.
Hugs, Marylou:)
