Mandarin Orange Monday 70

Relics

My father’s shed is just about empty.. actually…my father’s sheds…there are two of them. Not much left now except  the cards… cards which he would have collected on birthdays and fathers days over the years…and sawdust.

I don’t quite know why he had bird cage hanging from the roof… there was never a bird in it…not in the shed anyway. And what was on those papers the wall?  They were in the little shed, the shed that was my first home while he built our house. There is more about that in my Boomers blog.

    My goodness, you do so much with so little. All of these precious items (except maybe the sawdust) lend themselves so nicely to your minipulations and colorization. Isn’t art just a wonderful thing … you, who has so much talent can take the simplest object and creat joy. I love it, Lori … Thanks for last week. Your post was wonderful.

    I love bird cages and especially the earthy images this week. Old books, papers and cards are such treasures to find. Thanks for hosting!

    I totally understand the birdcage, we have vacated birdcages hanging in our shop.;-) You never know when you will have the urge for another bird…. or need to contain a small animal. I like the assorted art papers placed on the walls, a homey touch, and your filters are great as usual.

    Couldn’t get to the comments yesterday night late, so here is my afterthought. Maybe the original plan was for the birdcage to be occupied? Kind of like the black and white. Have a great week!
