Sunlit Sunday February 10

Being an avid folk dancer for 40 years, I have a little collection from going to folk dance festivals.  The first one is from our widely successful greek festival held in September in Salt Lake City. The wooden musical instrument is from a country in South America. Joining My Little Home and Garden.

Let us sing joyful praises to our God.

Hello, Ruth

It much be such a source of pleasure to be a folk dancer!

The instrument you've shown is a beautifully decorated one; I imagine it sounds as wonderful as it looks and I appreciate you bringing it to "Sunlit Sunday" this week.

I have never seen one of those. I play the violin and uke and would love to hear that. My uke is old and I believe I will paint it and decorate mine as yours. Would that be cheating? Nice idea. Thanks for sharing.
