Dear Sue!


A room with pictures and a room without pictures,

differ nearly as much as a room with windows and a room without windows;


for pictures are loopholes of escape to the soul, leading to other scenes and spheres;

where the fancy for the moment may revel, refreshed and delighted.


Pictures are consolers of loneliness, and relief to the jaded mind,

and windows to the imprisoned thought;


they are books, histories, and sermons—

which we can read without the trouble of


turning over the leaves.

                                           Sir John Gilbert



 Sincerely yours. Hug B.

  24. A simple idea with so much meaning! I agree with you and love the pictures you used too.

    I have pictures all over the house and on the refrigerator; they are the first thing people look at when they come over. Pictures are the first thing I notice when I visit others.
