This week's Favorite Thing is very special
My Dad, who passed away 7 years ago was a Iowa farm boy who always loved the outdoors, gardening and hummingbirds! They just fascinated him! We always had feeders around and Dad would spend hours just watching them. This is the last good photo I took of him before he got so ill and then passed away!
My Mom keeps this on the mantel in her home!
We had given Dad a potting bench for his birthday and he loved it.
Many years ago my Mom made something very special for her husband
In 1990, long before my Dad became ill,
this appliqued quilted wall hanging was a gift to him
I think it is so well done and it was a favorite thing of my Dad's. It was in his nursing home room until the end. Now it lives once again with Mom.
I also love hummingbirds and think of my Dad when I see one! So today, this is one of my favorite things at my Mom's house!
