A long time ago I discovered that I love blogging… so I hope you don’t mind finding me here this often. The truth is I believe there’s a special blessing in capturing lovely moments through photography. Photographs have the power to recreate and relive glorious and simple moments in our lives over and over again, and for evermore through the ages.
Aside from photography, I also love gardening and fluffing up my nest and dreaming a lot too. Thus, it is only natural for me to combine all these likings into a potpourri of joy and feathers, and shimmers, and then come here and share them with you, just the way they come out straight from the heart… Thank you for coming back.
I wonder what was Lily Elsie thinking here when she posed for this photograph over a hundred years ago… one can almost tell just by looking at her lovely expressions, don’t you think so? See what I meant about the power of photography?
It is hard to find a tablecloth out there that fits my square dinning room table… so I have to be creative and unconventional too… like using this lovely double ruffled eyelet bed skirt you see here as a tablecloth.
A burlap table runner over it for contrast and charm always helps
add a bouquet of pine branches from the woods outside and some roses
and you've got it!…
Love the combination
It rained here for days this past week… a bitter rain like icicles on my face, while a blustery wind kept busy pulling up and around all the leaves in the shrubbery and woods in the back of our house. Boy, isn’t this supposed to be the South? I tell you, it’s been the most estrange winter I'd ever had… and I’m tired of it too! Can someone please open up the curtains of heaven and let the sun shine free and happy! ;)
Can you see it not?
Ah yes slowly... very slowly,
the angel in charge of letting out the sun up in heaven
is rising up the blinds and throwing open every window...
We're almost there!
Welcome back Spring!
