    Last Chistmass we had given our grandaughter a small 12 string Paki harp she was 3 then and loved it. Because Grandma and Grandpa had there own harps and ofcourse she would always try to play one of them. We told her that this was not a toy and could be used anytime she was at our house (she lives only a 100 yards away if that) so she would strum on it from time to time trying to sing twinkle twinkle little star. Well yesterday she came over while I was working on “Brian Boru’s March” on my wire harp and wanted to play her harp as well. So Vickie gets it out for her and Vickie plays twinkle twinkle while Alia sings along but soon says ” Let my try grandma” and was able to play part of it all by herself! Vicke then coached her in the notes on the paper and the color of the strings and which notes were which and she played it! Not quite all the way through but what a breakthru and a truly magic moment. We were both stunded.

    You need to store your picture on a website such as or one of those. Then you can link to it using the url.

    Once the image is on-line, you need to use the following html code:

    <img src = "” > (close up all the spaces and don’t forget the quotation marks).

    It looks like your link above isn’t working either.

    I can see this on a greeting card. The shot and the subject are perfect. 🙂

    That is just precious!

    I agree…that belongs on a Christmas card, or something like that.

    I also love the one where she appears to be giving the stuffed elephant a lesson!

    Looks like she plans to be a left-shoulder player.
