01 Mar Treasure Story 5 – The Picture that brings back Italy
“A number of years ago, my daughter and I embarked on a wonderful holiday in Italy. It was the kind of holiday that left us in tears at the airport for the return home. I loved Italy and treasure the memories.
My sister-in-law who volunteers for Grands and More was working on the first Art (From) the Attic fundraiser and (was) circulating photos of some of the art work that was for sale. That’s where I saw MY PICTURE! I have no idea of where it is depicting but it so reminds me of some of the places we visited on our dream trip. I had to have it! I asked her to keep an eye out for it and if she came across it on sale day, to mark it sold, at whatever the cost. When she found it, she warned me, “It’s rather large.” Fine! If I didn’t have room for it, I could always move! So I got my picture of Italy (even if it isn’t!) and it holds pride of place in my living room where every day I see it and get reminded of our marvelous trip-of-a-lifetime!”
