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 !

  7. Really love this Brenda! Absolutely awesome. My little girl who is only 8 now talks to me about when she gets a house, she wants to paint wildflowers on the bottom all the way around! I hope she still does as an adult because this would be so much fun! Great job on the project and your pictures are wonderful. I really understood how you did this! :) Thank you for the ideas and inspiration!
