Tuesday's Treasures

On Tuesday's we often take a trip down memory lane with some "remember when" photos and stories. It could be photos from a high school prom; a nostalgic look at a 1950's TV program or a collage of family photos that were just taken last week.

A Great Idea!

Maya Angelou said, "The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart." I'll bet that happened with the charming image we are featuring today.

This gem turned up in one of my Photoshop Elements classes the other day. Dana Kimbrough went to see Little House On the Prairie with her family and recorded the event in a collage. A special event for a special birthday girl!

The play was at Fair Park in Dallas, and is part of a summer series of musicals that they put on every year. My family and I just went to see Wicked and it was really well done as well.

Dana's delightful grandchildren have read the "Little House" books and loved the play. They chose bonnets (a fine idea in my book) instead of t-shirts for a treat to remind of them of the day.

This image was printed on a 16 x 20 sheet at Walgreen's. The paper is thick enough that you can actually hang it on a wall with out framing.



John Steinbeck said, "Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen." How fun would it be to have several of these on one wall, each depicting an event together?

A special thank you to Dana Kimbrough for letting me share her great idea on the blog!
