Reece decided to say good-bye to piano lessons. He wanted to present his teacher with a thank you gift and this is what he came up. A section of old toy train track, som nuts, bolts, and other miscellaneous hardware, a personal message, and there you have it. Ingenious!
Debbie, his teacher was delighted with this incredibly thoughtful gift. Wouldnt you be?

I'm just delighed to see Reece learning at such a young age the artful side of recycling. He was provided with the tools of the trade (the junk), but he came up with the design and executed it all by his lonesome. Beautiful, don't you think? Way to go Reece!

AND Jenny K. could not be a better mentor...this I KNOW for a FACT! GEORGIA Posted: 10:33 pm on July 1st

And...how lucky for him to have such a talented junk art teacher - our own JennyK!!! What a wonderful gift you're sharing with Reece!

Can't wait to see pics from your junking expedition - a boy in a junkyard - sounds like heaven for him for sure!! :)

Take care, Kathy Posted: 9:05 am on July 1st

Take care,
Sue

writes: Sue,
Thanks so much for posting this! He is quite a little guy and I am excited to see his progress. I especially like his use of the train track for the music staff - he came up with that on his own and as you probably remember, I did the same thing on my contributor piece a couple months back.

Next up, we're going to the the salvage yard together so I can work with him to discover his own stuff. I am REALLY looking forward to that.
