At first glance when you visit our house you might not notice it but, by the time that you depart you’ll realize you were in a museum filled with priceless works of art. The works of art, though on full display, at first aren’t easy to discern but as we take you on a tour…the more and more you learn. There’s a walking stick in the corner an an old chair we’ve always had you might not recognize their value but the artist was Deborah’s dad. There’s a cookie jar sitting on a bookcase… ”That doesn’t look priceless.” You might say. Until you see it’s filled with notes of remembrances our children wrote to Deborah one Mother’s day. There’s a framed black and white drawing of a young man a little pensive…perhaps a little sad that was drawn by my own father long before he was my dad. We’ll show you artwork from our children that still gives our hearts a lift and our name made out of license plates given to us as a gift. There’s an old closet door where you’ll see our children’s and grandchildren’s measures… There’s an old chest in the back bedroom overflowing with more treasures. Our house is filled with so much priceless art that can be found on every shelf but the best way to experience it would be to see it for yourself. Because what makes our artwork priceless…what gives our art pizzazz Is not how much it cost…but the story each piece has. This means when you visit our house…for whatever reason you are there we will gladly show you all our art…and all their stories gladly share. Which is why, when you visit our house, by the time you all depart you’ll know you were in a museum filled with priceless works of art.
