Happiness


Happiness is sharing a bowl of cherries and a book of poetry with a shade tree.
He doesn't eat much and doesn't read much,
but listens well and is a most gracious host.

I love this, Chas. I like the fact that the photo looks as if you whitewashed it very lightly. Not sure how you achieved that effect, but it's neat!

XO,

Sheila :-)

BTW, you asked about the bottles in that photo the other day, and I think some were bath salts. Others were powder that you shake almost like a powdered sugar shaker.
