#32 - CREATIVE, originally uploaded by LauraBelle'.

My father-in-law is a very creative man who makes some of the neatest things! Not long after having met my husbands parents, when we'd gone over to their house, I'd noticed a tinkling when we walked in through the front door. I'd never seen nor heard of a door harp before and I just loved theirs! At one point later, Bruce had asked what was my favorite color. I told him I loved green and most all shades of green.

This is a harp he made and gifted to me! He has made them in different shapes, painting them in various colors with varied embellishments. Under the bridge that the balls hang from, he's written his nickname 'SCUZZY' with '#60' (he numbers each piece of every item he's made!) followed by the date '5-98'. This is now the third house it has welcomed in one and all with a lovely tinkling. I like to think it's the LAST house it's going to hang in, but who knows ... maybe someday we'll move again. If so, it's going with me!
