Bird And Deer

Originally uploaded by needlepointernc

My father’s Uncle Joe used to paint these ceramic figurines in the Rutland State Hospital where he lived. He was in a wheelchair because he had lost his legs. We would go to visit him on Sunday afternoons. He used to give the figurines to us when we went to see him. I don’t know what happened to the other pieces but I am glad that I have these. He painted his initials on the bottom when there was space.

I took this outside on the porch railing. Our decorative grass is ready to be trimmed back. But the brown fluffy plumes look okay against the railing.

Bittersweet, but beautiful

These are real treasures. I like the grass and the angle of the shot, too.

I am doing my family tree, so I took pictures of these to include on my Uncle’s page. I am going to do a book. I am using to do the research and they have a publish option that isn’t too bad to use.
