Here is a little slideshow with a few "F"otos...of the special Fathers in our Family's life...
Joining in with Miss Jenny for Alphabe-thursday's letter "F".
*****& Thank you for ordering these for the special Fathers in your lives...
I had talked about this one before and shown it on another post, but wanted to include this on this post along with the story behind it.
This customer had ordered this years ago. She wanted any steam engine for her dad. He had worked many, many years with the various railroad companies, and had been retired for a very long time from the RR. She didnt have a photo of one, but left it to my discretion as to the image.
This was long before google search or bing...so it was off to the library... I found a wonderful book filled with lots of neat steam engines. ...completed the drawing and she loved it.
After she came back from seeing her family, she saw me again at another show. It was so awesome to hear that her dad loved it as well...not only that, but that particular steam engine the "Alaskan" was the exact one that he started working with, as a young man!
I love to hear the stories behind the images that are chosen.
