My grandfather made a violin!

Can you believe this? I remember my grandfather making a violin for my father! What made him think he could make a violin? But he made one. He made one for my father who played violin. My father played violin with his brothers and sister in a little band for silent movies in the 1920's before talking movies came out.

Anyway, here is the violin he made. My father used to play it all the time.

I just thought someone might want to hear a story like that. I'm going to have my daughter put strings on it. It currently hangs on the wall in my dining room.

Have a great day, everybody.


  1. that is a magical story, it made me smile...

  2. You certainly came from a very talented and creative family. Looking forward to the "big" day :-)


  3. That beautiful violin would be hanging quite proudly on my wall. I can't play so I would want to see it every single day.

  4. It's a beautiful story, & a beautiful violin!
    Enjoy the weekend!

  5. I know you girls have been busy, but we'd like to hear about your mothers birthday celebration :-)

  6. What a wonderful story. I have a violin that belonged to my great grandfather. I'm thinking I should display it. It's now stored in a case.

  7. What a sweet story, What a lovely violin, I love it. Happy VTT!

  8. Hi! It's me again. This is such a sweet story!
