A Message of Love

Sweet is the smile of home, the mutual look, when hearts are of each other sure. 
John Keble.

In today’s world.
With its stresses and anxieties …..

….. and the increasing demands on our day .....

..... countless things pressing for our attention.

There is little time to share …

… with loved ones.

Sometimes, there is no time to cosset

Or appreciate.


These teeny matchbox drawers.

Hold a special message.

A message of affection.
Of sweet sayings …

… a billet doux

To brighten the day …

… of a treasured one.

With beautiful expressions of love.

  11. How immensely beautiful - and ever so true. It seems as if everyday is a nonstop parade of go, go, go with few giving pause to enjoy a quiet moment of serenity and beauty. Something, really, that is needed all the more so the busier we are.

    Thank you very much for both of your lovely blog comments this morning. It's marvelous to make your acquaintance.
