A Jewish blessing on the wall?

There is a Jewish saying or blessing or whatever hanging on the wall in our house but I have no idea what it says. Could someone please translate it for me?

"בבית תשרה שמחה בריאות פרנסה בהכה ושלום"

translation: "happiness, health, livelihood, blessing and peace will be in this house". Many Jewish houses have something like that on the wall, but I have no idea what's the source

It is called Birkat Ha'Bayit (ברכת הבית) - see here:
