day 105 ~ joy

"Joy is not in things; it is in us." 
~ Richard Wagner

"Joy is a net of love by which you catch souls."
~ Mother Teresa

This is the second tree made from branches created by the students 
at our art night a few weeks ago. 
Both trees, as well as some yet to be taken photos of them, 
will be available for sale at the school's first annual Art Show. 

Wish us luck in raising big funds for our wonderful school!


lovely branches ~ our talented students
trunk, roots n' swing ~ miss michelle


  1. Love it. My Gramma's name was Joy. :)
    I hope you raise oodles for the school!

  2. Are you taking on-line orders for any of the trees? I would love the "hope" tree.

  3. Wonderful quotes (so true) to accompany this delightful tree, with the emphasis on "light"... the students did a beautiful job of working with each other and you, and this little tire swing is amazingly right for the tree.

    Much luck for funds incoming!

  4. Many thanks for the words of support and well wishes for our school.

    Kathy, I haven't yet begun taking any on-line orders. I'm going to ponder pricing and how to ship these delicately balanced beings, because while the hope tree posted here will be sold to one of the families at our school, I could make a similar one for you. Let me think on that a bit.

    Rick, my girl immediately said that she wished she was small enough to ride on that swing. :)

    Happy day, everyone.
