OH, HOW I LOVE A TREE

This beauty is called The Tree Speaks, and it's by Carriage House Samplings. I fell in love with the sentiment expressed thusly:

I am the beam that holds your house
I am the heat of your hearth on cold winter nights
I am the board of your table
the handle of your hoe
the door of your home
the wood of your cradle
the timber of your boat
My fruits quench your thirst
as you journey on
Come rest in my shade

Isn't that the coolest? According to the chart, the design was inspired by a verse called "Friend of Man, The Tree Speaks" that the designer's father-in-law admired on a plaque in his aunt's home in Pittsburgh.

Guess we all know what I'll be doing today....

Happy Weekend, everybody! Woo Hoo!
