Gallery Wall Snap Shot

I spent a large portion of my day in my dining room with my four-year-old, some butcher paper, scissors, glue and back issues of Model Train Enthusiast. My kid was creating a train station collage while I safely and obediently cut out engines from the magazines. It was wonderful. Every time I looked up from my work, this is what I saw - our lovely gallery wall filled with my son's art work and a sign that says, "We might just be the luckiest people alive." And it occurred to me today, that we might just be.

Happy Summer!

Such beautiful art! It's nothing like art from the hands of children. Priceless. I have the art my children did when they were little & they are now 19 and 22

I read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. Love Kingsolver! Her whole idea of respectfulness of the planet's resources has made an impression on me, although I am not a vegan, or even vegetarian. I've noticed that occasionally on some of the food shows that word "respect" is mentioned with regard to the ingredients.
Watch out tho! You'll be growing your own food-if not already from the looks of these photos. Love the blog and "pinned" a few of the beautiful pictures.
