A loaf of bread...

We've all heard the old saying
'A jug of wine, a loaf of bread and thou.
But did you know that phrase came from
a love poem.

"A Book of Verses underneath the Bough,
A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread-and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness-
O, Wilderness were Paradise enow!" 
This is the challenge that was set over at the Soartful Blog and this picture was provided for inspiration, here is my take on quote and picture:

 The photograph is one of my own from Montelcino in Tuscany, Italy.  There are a couple of overlays from the Scrappin' Cop, the vintage couple are a freebie from Art Freebies Blog, various digital elements from designers at Scrapbookgraphics.


  1. Perfect for the challenge (saw it this morning and wondering what to do) x

  2. Hi Janice, You are so lucky to have seen such beautiful places. Your couple fit right in this scene perfectly.

    Thanks for being Soartful this week.

  3. Fantastic how you did this one. love how you incorporated the wine etc and really love that saying
