Artful Living

family friends

Family friends, heirlooms, paintings and rugs
A family keepsake, a painting of a little boy passed to each generation as a souvenir.  He watches my every move and serves as a reminder, a memento of sorts to cherish.  Like a friend, he needs attention and thoughtfulness in order to continue on his heirloom journey.  I think of this boy and wonder about his friends, his family and the original owner and artist who painted this family gem.  

Do you have any antiques from family that have been handed down to love, honor and to cherish like best friends.
