    Nice one V I like that vintage tone and the sheets of music makes a great back ground, Excellent !!

  • my thanks, curt! my daughter gifted me with this lovely small vase that i can fill it with tiny flowers & set it on my computer (where i spend WAAAYY too much time! so i created this for her, using one of her favorite pieces of music. if you look really hard, you can see where she wrote the letters identifying the notes to teach herself how to play it when she was young – priceless! :))

  • hi, lois! many thanks for your lovely words, and fave, as well. leaded glass in the front door was making funky little rainbows on my space, so i opened that door, letting in a rush of late afternoon sunshine thru the storm door – warm, golden light! the violets are right here with me now – love ’em. thanks again!
