mama's dad, orland newman (6/18/18-1/26/98), was an artist. he made things from wood and copper. besides being mama's dad, he's my grandpa, daisymae maus's grandma's dad, daisymae's mom's grandpa, and daisymae's great grandpa! (family...whew!)
don't be scared...it's art!
mama LOVES this one
mama used to wear this on her suit lapel
grandpa used a small piece of lava rock from mt st helen to make this pretty little rose bouquet stand up
mama has had this rose on her desk ever since grandpa made it for her in 1990
