(My apologies for the wonky photography today...those green walls do some strange things, I tell you.) This is a Corner of My Home, in our dining room. It's become our 'wall of trees'. The top piece is an old painting of a pear tree, below that a pencil drawing of a forest edge that Steve found for me antiquing this spring, on the left is my print by AshleyG (a closeup here); and on the bottom- at child's eye height- is the newest addition, arriving just this week:
Hope Springs Eternal, by Lisa. (Thankfully, she has some better photographs and a description of the process a bit here). This has been a favorite of mine since I first saw it over a year ago now. When I first saw it, I was just beginning to know Lisa outside of our blogs, and never could have imagined how close we would become, or that she would make the journey across the country for us to meet and visit. I'm truly grateful for all of that and for this latest act of her generosity. The message of this piece - (and it's five hearts on the tree -quite symbolic for my family) - rings so true in my heart about so very much- spring; hope; and renewal. Thank you, thank you dear Lisa for sharing your heart!
