5. the checkerboard edge of the painted floorcloth that protects our dining room table.
6. this new little bag Mom made.
7. Mom's favorite mug.8. A photograph by Mom's friend Anne Alt.
9. A drawing by Mim-may.
10. An example of Mom's painted furniture.
11. A drawing Mom did of Mr Karate when he was 10.

You all have said just what I was thinking! Gotta save the best for last! Although those drawings are very very nice too.

All wonderful examples, especially that last one. My Lap Lady's favorite has to be the purse, she says she's drooling its so purty.

I'm also a huge fan of black and white. My boyfriend has more colour in his wardrobe than I do! I found that when I created window displays, my black and white ones were the most dramatic and most talked about.

Those are all great, but #13 is the best I agree!

Saved da best fer last!

I think that #13 shows great form and style, with flowing lines and a very sensitive use of color and contrast. The smidges of pink and green bring the piece to life! Somebody should contact MoMA!
