Page 4 ~ first view

This is a copy of a picture drawn by an artist of my grandparents homestead. I printed it in black & white and added just a few touches of color. The tags have a couple of memories written on them; I kept them simple so as not to take away from the picture.

Attached to the page, along with a key and the Fruit "gentleness" is an Amethyst. After my Daddy Lewis passed away and the majority of the land was sold to create a subdivision, a vein of Amethyst was found on the farm. A lot were collected and I thought this was a cool touch for my grandmother.

This house is original to the farm, where my grandparents were originally share croppers who eventually were able to purchase the farm.
