Sketch Play and Quotes

“Life is so full of meaning and of purpose, so full of beauty–beneath its covering–you will find that earth but cloaks your heaven.  Courage, then to claim it: that is all!~Fra Giovanni – year 1513

Today’s Sketch Play is inspired by vintage images that I enjoy and collect.  Some came from my great-aunt  who left me with a large collection of old postcards.  Her family owned a merchandise store in the early 1900.
