When were in Round Top, we also bought a Christmas tree to make a pattern. Dad accidentally made a bird shape and he and Peyton thought there was no improvement needed to their pattern. I kept my mouth shut.
We'll have decorations on the tree at some point. Peyton painted it and the birds. She painted it and the birds along with a "faith" of her own. She was ready to stick her paintbrush in Dad's ear because he was telling her how to paint.
Dad sought out these old lock plates after seeing something similar. They are supposed to hang on the wall so you can hang necklaces from them, but he put them on stands. He didn't take kindly to me telling him it defeated the purpose. He did change out one of the knobs. He had a red knob on coral which clashed badly. Maybe he will find some tongue and groove instead of plywood scraps to make more. And maybe they will be better color coordinated.
Oh, and earlier in the week, I finished another project for a friend to give as a gift.
