I  found  this  image  on Facebook  and  want  to  share  it   here.The  smile on  each face tells  how   happy  they  are  to  be  together. Lack  of  their  own  space  or  comfort does  not  bother them.
I  love  the  baby  sleeping  in  the  dresser drawer.
What  do  you  like   about  this  painting?
What  title  would  you  give  it?

Very sweet and funny, but also giving to think picture.
My friend told me once an authentic story about old houses in Western Poland at the beginning of 20th century. In these houses, there lived literally generations - grandparents, parents with children, uncles and aunts and sometimes even greatgrandparents. Today it is difficult to find this kind of home, because today most people want to be independent. This painting gave me memories from my childhood, when families were more together.
So I will give the title: "Happy family with dog".

Dear Zim, thank you for your comment. Yes In India too the joint family was the tradtion in which several genarations lived under one roof. Now mainly because of economiic breakdown and emplohyment issues single family units can be seen, but the joint family still exist.

Childhood memories would be my title.
My mother had 8 siblings and after my granddad have been away in America for a long time, he came home to Norway and bought a nice farm for himself and my grandmom. His children were all grown up,and married with own children.
In our summer vacations we gathered from all over the country and America as well.
We were more than twenty people gathered in grandmom's great kitchen.
I clearly remember my brother sleeping in a dress drawer.
Nothing funny about that. When we cousins gather, our best memories are from those 6 summers on our grandparent's farm.

Thank you for your responses Felisol and David.

Dear Felisol, I remember pictures and description of your family cabin up in the mountains. A place of refuge for the family.

There was a time we (5) lived in a tiny flat. I had to sleep on the porch at times. But we were so happy, never complained.
