The one about a lighthouse...

My nephew Devon, is my parents first grandchild, and my first nephew...so you can imagine for many years, everything he did, was hailed with much excitement. His first tooth, his first pair of takkies, his first kick of a ball, his first anything really...

So it was kinda odd that we all had to ask to see the much awaited piece of art from his very first pottery class {that we had been hearing about for ages}...that was until my sister pulled it out...{no pun intended}
This...was Devon's lighthouse...

He was so proud of it.
We were kinda speechless. No one really had to explain anything...

Needless to say it has given our family many, many laughs...

It has remained, proudly displayed in her lounge {behind a few other items} now for many years...and this past weekend, I discovered it again as she was busy, lovingly wrapping it up to be stored away.



PS.  I have no doubt this piece of artwork, will resurface at his 21st...
