What's on your wall Wednesday!

Have you checked out Barb over at Grits and Glamour today?

Barb has a great blog, and every Wednesday she hosts What's on Your Wall Wednesday! I'm participating in my first one today!

I found this little plaque a few years ago at a local flea market (that I can't wait to check out again this weekend). It has sentimental value and just kinda spoke to me when I saw it.

Back in 1996 and 1997 when I was expecting my little Josie and right after she was born, I lost my two remaining grandparents and one of my dear uncles.

In October, 1996, my dear Grandpa (who I spoke about here) passed away after a short battle with lung cancer. In February, 1997, 3 weeks after Josie's birth, my dear Grandma Tootsie passed away after a heart attack. We say that she really died of a broken heart after my Grandpa's death. In June, 1997, my Uncle Mike was killed in the line of duty as a firefighter.

The three angels on this plaque represent those 3 angels. The one in the middle with the crooked wings, is my Uncle Mike, cuz he was just plain goofy!

To check out other What's on Your Wall Wednesday posts head over the Grits and Glamour!


  1. Dawn, that's just so special. It's the stories behind the things we have that make them so special. Thanks for sharing!


  2. Oh how sweet - thanks for sharing this and the story behind it!

  3. Wow Dawn, I love the special meaning behind that plaque. Thanks so much for sharing.

  4. Beautiful. And I love how you found meaning not only in the plaque itself but in the crooked wings.
