Pretty Words -- from the heart

Beautiful Words - Beautiful Letters -- I love them both.    I love writing beautiful words that have a special meaning.   So I was happy when my BFF asked me to write her favorite saying on an out-building at her farm. 

   We printed it in a style we both loved

I enlarged it to use as a guide

Her husband gave me a level line

Next comes a  flourish of leaves (and one special flower)

.... I measured and centered the words ....

and then I started writing ......
(in between moments of holding my breath :)

from the book 'The Little Prince' by Antoine de Saint-Exupery ...
the words are ...

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret:
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;
what is essential is invisible to the eye ..

I think the Little Prince would be happy ....

but most importantly .... my BFF is happy
that makes ME happy !
