Three Muses - Fun and Games


I indulged in a bit of flight of fancy on this one, with some old game boards (googled) and a manufactured "thinker". Actually, Chinese Checkers were probably the most popular game at our house when I was small. Pinochle and euchre were popular card games. I still enjoy all three! Can't wait to see yours!
