Another beautiful sunny day and I have spent my morning creating just for the JOY of art.
I had this wooden frame in my stockpile.. a find from the thrift shop.  I look for these flat wide wooden frames
that I can do art on.  I have been playing with the linoleum and did some cut out flowers, hearts and even a butterfly.  So I decided to create an assemblage of these shapes on this frame I had painted turquoise.
The words struck a cord in me.. a quote from William M. Thackeray. 
Though now that I google it, I am finding
"A good laugh is the sunshine in a house"
I printed the words on cardstock and temporarily mounted it
in the frame.
Because I am planning on stitching the words on cloth.
But for now, this will do till I get time to do the stitching.
Adddint the roof was an added last touch after I choose the words.
I think this will be a happy addition to our happy home.
so smile today.
and remember to

more on that later.
