The Sweetest And The Saddest...

I came across this image and was touched deeply.
They are homeless.
I simply can not imagine how horrible it must be to struggle to care for ones self 
and to try your best to care for another helpless small 'being' while living on the street.
This picture made me cry and smile at the same time.
What I see is the love and caring between them.
They are not alone, they have each other. 
It seems to me...
that is everything.

What do you see?

  19. This is a very sad and touching picture of tragedy and love.

    It's a situation that's repeated thousands of times all over the country, as y'all know.

    Fortunately, in some places, there are kind people doing their best to help.

    In Alachua County, Florida we're lucky to have Elizabeth Howard who started the Home Van Pet Care Project.

    The mission of the Home Van Pet Care Project is to feed the animals of homeless and low income persons; to offer education on pet care and spay/neuter; assist with access to veterinary care; to foster respect for animals and the animal/human bond.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
