Glimpse of Happiness

"I caught a glimpse of happiness,
and saw it was a bird on a branch,
fixing to take wing."

Richard Peck

I used a bird illustration found in a book:
published in 1913. I imagine it perching
briefly, preparing to fly off again.

Typewriter font messages were added to some,
and some were kept blank. I like having the
option to write in another message or a name,
if using as a gift tag. They turned out nicely
as rustic mason jar ring Christmas ornaments.

Hope you're all staying well & staying warm!
It's definitely getting colder here in Ohio.
There was a dusting of snow the day after
Thanksgiving, which made it feel like
A final thought...

"The moments of happiness
we enjoy take us by surprise.
It is not that we seize them,
but that they seize us."

Ashley Montagu
