A FAVOURITE WALL HANGING

My twin and I have had this wall hanging for over 20 years. It has graced the walls of our living-room in several places but now it is near to our bird figurine display unit!  Feathered friends flock together!:) It came all the way from England as a gift from a pen-pal. I hope to have it for many more years.

That's very cheerful with the blue and the polka dots!

This wall decor is so nice. I have some duck decor in my kitchen. I had them for about 20 years too.

Hi Judy,

I love all of your treasures! I love how they all have stories, too, and so many from pen pals. I think that is so... COOL. lol. It really is, though.

Hope you have a great day! :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Stephanie! It is always great to hear from you. Over the years Janine and I have had many pen-pals whom we exchanged gifts with. Since her death I now keep in touch with several of her pen-pals. The only difference is that these days in the majority of instances we keep in touch via email!:) Anyway today I am writing 2 letters to post tomorrow.Take care and enjoy the rest of your day.

Hi Judy, I like your wallhanging...I used to collect ducks, but when I had three kids I had to put my figurines away for a while! :) Maybe I can get them back down now -- my youngest is 23! LOL I'm a new follower!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Keepsakes are very special. They help us to remember things that we'd forgotten.

My mother has something VERY similar hanging in her house :) I believe her's has a "welcome" sign on it though. Reminds me of home!
