Where we love is home

Where we love is home,
Home that our feet may leave,
but not our hearts.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, from Homesick in Heaven

A hundred years from now . . . it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove. But the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child Forest E Witcraft

Another shadow box piece from the CassaBella series

The background paper is sheet music and the windows are trimmed up with dictionary pages for the words house & home. Butterflies are cut from a cosmetic tissue. The screen door was backed with organza ribbon.

Almost running out of flower shaped buttons, if anyone has some they would like to share, drop us an email to propose a swap.
