Family Heirlooms

Family Heirlooms
Originally uploaded by romanceandrelics

My Aunt Minnie had artistic talent oozing from the tips of her fingers. She could paint on canvas and on porcelain/china. She had two amazing studios in her house. One was for all the porcelain work, where she kept the kiln. The studio upstairs had several windows where all the natural light came in. This is where she painted.I enjoyed visiting her and her husband. They never had children so nieces & nephews became her children. I inherited many pieces of her art as well as some great pieces of furniture ( to be blogged about at a later time). Today I share my Aunt Minnie's PINK hand painted roses. Please enjoy them as I do. For more great talent please visit Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound. Have a blessed day.
