Dear Anyes,

Really love the images. What a wonderful post--so thoughtful of you to honor our Japanese friends.

Your bud,

Hey Bud!,
My gosh, it's bad enough to be victims of an earthquake, but to be hit by a tsunami, then to live in proximity and in fear of a nuclear explosion. The expression 'being kicked when your down' takes on a hole new meaning.
Thanks for dropping in.

I cannot even imagine what those people are going through. I feel so bad for them and everytime I see or hear anything I tear up.
Your pictures are lovely-thanks for posting them!

(I've got a new blog by the way.. I'm running away from a hater so I opened a new profile and blog. You can find me if you hit my name at the top .... )

((Hugs))

Dear Anyes,
How absolutely amazing that you live in this stunning house of history. If those walls could talk. I love the porch. My grandparents had one like it, with a swing on the side porch.
Thank you so much for your very kind words and for taking the time to visit my blog. Your words of appreciation meant alot to me and I'm sorry it has taken me so long to tell you so.
Best wishes,
Catherine

Oh, and I do think these photos of old Japan are so moving. Don't you love the soft hand painted images? Beautiful.

Hello Catherine,
Yes, we consider ourselves blessed to have found this house. It was empty and left unsold for two years before we found it. I feel it was waiting for us.
Your boxes look like they were made by a little fairy, they are magical. Don't worry about replies, I understand. The artistic temperament is always pulled away, thinking about something that caught their attention or tinkering with it. Yes those old pictures are lovely, I thought they conveyed well the words peace and silence.
Thank you so much for coming by,
Anyes
