Pink curtains, green carpet, I remember you, playing on the floor of my new room. The Sunshine Family was my friend on many a quiet afternoon, forever transforming empty tissue boxes, lids, cotton balls, caps, toothpicks, fabric scraps, into furniture for my little family.
This peaceful, self-sufficient little family was my first practice in recycling. My own grandmother was the living example, not wasting even a bread sack without finding another use. This little family reinforced for me the ideal of living simply.
She loved the hen too.
