tranquillité svp


Even though our listing says “By appointment only”, we are being bothered by ignorant realtors who ring the doorbell asking questions about our house. When the doorbell rings, the dog barks and the baby cries.

So, to hopefully help with my problem, I made this canvas to hang on the door. Since the Wednesday Stamper theme this week is “fleur de lis”, I tried to make the canvas with a French feel. The lullaby may not be French in origin…maybe someone will recognize it... I think it may be written in French, but from Belgium? The site was not clear. Anyway, the lullaby translates:

A White Hen

A white hen
Is in the barn.
She made a small egg
For the child who sleeps.
Sleepy time, sleepy time, pussy-cat,
Sleepy time, sleepy time, kitty-cat.

A black hen
Is in the cupboard.
She made a small egg
For the child who sleeps.
Sleepy time, sleepy time, pussy-cat,
Sleepy time, sleepy time, kitty-cat.

Cute!

This is adorable. I hope the realtors get the hint. That is very rude what they are doing.

Do you think realtors can read??!
I love the way you have blended the poem into the rest of the piece.
