Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen things hanging on my walls . . . (besides cobwebs and stink bugs).

My diploma for my B.A. It took me 8 years to get it.
I was the first in my family to get a college degree.

Beautiful artwork given to me by my friend, Dreama Kattenbraker.
She's a local artist who does wonderful and interesting work.

I am not sure where this came from. Remember when they used to have
house parties and sell things? I think from some place like that. I bought it
because the colors matched my bedroom.

A P. Buckley Moss print called "James."

Another one of those house party prints, I think. It's an old tractor and barn.

Connie Marsh print of Fincastle scenes.

A cuckoo clock my mother gave me.

A photo I took some years ago.

Main, at Hollins University.

A country scene that we bought years ago as a "temporary" piece
to fill some space. My husband really likes it so it is now
permanent, apparently.

Dulcimers. These instruments hail from the Appalachian region,
which is where I live, and are kin to zithers, if you know
what those are.
A P. Buckley Moss print called "Anita."

My husband's most favorite of his collection of fire department stuff.



Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here if you want to read other Thursday Thirteens and/or play along. I've been playing for a while and this is my 436th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.


  1. I love the poetry birds. The fireman stuff is cool too! My wall? I'm looking at a picture of John and Yoko at the bed-in and a Rolling Stones cover of the Dixie Chicks naked (except for words written on their bodies).

  2. All pretty cool; I especially like the dulcimers & the mini-fireman's coat.

  3. Your dulcimers look great! I'd love to play with them for a while.

    I remember those house parties where they sold things like makeup and kitchen wear. They always made me feel so pressured. I thought people stopped inviting me to them because I'm such a party pooper. You mean they don't really do them anymore?

  4. Far more hanging on your walls than mine. I like the Connie Marsh scenes.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
