The favorite item I'm showing is a painting. I have the artist's permission to post this on my blog with the caveat that no one steal the photo. So please play nice, especially since the artist is my Mom.

This is a painting of Two Trees, a hill that is the backdrop to a great deal of our city. I grew up in the flatland at the base of these hills and my parents still live there today. This was the hill that was on fire a couple of months ago, as shown in this post. My mom was in the middle of painting this piece, many years ago, when she developed a detached retina and had to undergo emergency surgery--a very scary time. Fortunately she regained her sight and this was the first painting she finished afterwards. It means a great deal to me. I am also fortunate to have many other original Ledlie works of art in my home.
Here we are standing in front of another. Love you, Mom! Go see more Favorite Things Friday here, until I put her button on my blog. I seem to be lousy at grabbing those suckers.
