You know that poem called “When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking”? If you don’t know it, you should Google it.
Right now. I’ll wait.
Many years ago, I scrapbooked a calendar for my mom and my Grandma. The captions for the pictures were the lines from that poem. One of the lines was
When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you hang my first picture on the refrigerator,
and I wanted to paint another one.
These days, Grace is making lots of art. Grace brings home crafty projects three out of the five days each week, and Joe and I have been sticking them in a drawer or under a magnet on the fridge. Unfortunately, all of the pictures were stuck in the same spot and we couldn’t really see them.
We came up with a new plan. We redecorated the kitchen.
Everyone who was here on Sunday noticed. How could they not?
Grace hasn’t mentioned her art hanging all over the kitchen. I’m not sure if she hasn’t noticed or if she didn’t think it was worth mentioning.
I think it is worth mentioning. I can’t think of a better place to hang her artwork.
I love my new decorations, and I smile each and every time I enter my kitchen. This works for me.
Happily submitted to Works for Me Wednesday
Donâ€™t forget to stop back on Thursday for Graceâ€™s Kitchen!
