The 2nd tamborine has been sitting on the side table for the last few days and I've decided that it's perfect just the way it is ... beads or anything else would be overkill. I've also decided to keep this one for myself ... along with the first tamborine (which I was thinking of giving to Pam). There's a small section of space over the French doors in the studio and these are the perfect size. In fact, hope I can find some more out there on the yard sale circuit. Anyway, this piece is finished.
