A Carpenters Hands

Splinters in his hands
The thorns of his profession
Wait to be removed

A dream comes to life
Under his hands it takes shape
Satisfaction reigns

He creates beauty
Wood yields to his artistry 
A carpenter’s hands…

    Oh....my husband and my taste in furniture differs SO SO much...He likes modern...I like old...I love antiques...and I LOVE things made of wood. Ah...so so beautiful. I'm still dreaming of a wooden four poster bed, and lacy curtains he promised me when we got married....I'm losing hope! Thanks for the visit, my sweet!

    :) I wish I could have wooden furniture everywhere in my house. I wish I could live in a wooden house and have a wooden chest of drawers. I LOVE everything made of wood! :) Thanks, Ken....your visit is sweet.
