Look What My Sister Can Do


She took one of my favorite childhood photos (I'm the one standing) and painted it for me. This is how it looks now, hanging on my living room wall. We were throwing rocks in "Grandpa's Lake". It was actually Grand Lake O' The Cherokees in northeastern Oklahoma, but as we went there every year to visit our grandpa and granny, we called it "Grandpa's Lake."

February 22nd is my sister Jules' birthday. If you go see her, speak up, cuz she's really getting up there in years!

Happy Birthday, Jules!

I remember you posted that pic a while back. I like it as much now as I did then. Your sister is very sweet to do a painted rendition of it.

The beautiful thing about little keepsakes like these is that your kids and their kids will treasure them.

That is a treasure of a gift! My dad & my daughter both paint. My Gramillo was an artist too. Their work is priceless.
Jules did a great job! Is she too old to still paint?

Happy Birthday, Jules!!
