Hello sweet people~
How are you?
( some music for you.. Brian Crain's Summer)
I am FINALLY rested from my trip and have been successful in
fighting off a cold and stomach virus.
Life has been rich and full with
visits, outings and celebrations.
Last Friday, three of my daughters and myself
watched Steel Magnolias and we
had the FuNnEsT time....
Laughing ..crying... sitting with our mouths wide open in disbelief!
The gave me a card and the cutest little wheel barrow planter
made from rough cut lumber. It was a late Mother's Day gift.
They're so sweet
I will share that later.
Today, Id like to show you all this little framed project using a few
collected treasures from nature.
I painted my thrifted picture frame.
First I dry brushed the frame with Vintage White acrylic.
Then by mixing some paints, I created some colors that matched
and softly brushed and blended them together in a few places
on the frame to add a few highlites.
French sheet music seemed a wonderful background for these natural beauties.
And here I share ONE of my treasure boxes filled with
collected treasures. Aren't treasure boxes so much fun?
I have several different kinds.
Special cards and notes..
Bits of papers from special events
and trips and places.
Do you have special treasures that you've kept tucked
away in a special place?
A beautiful, dried rose resting atop an old weathered bone..
It seems kind of strange but maybe they are a perfect contrast
of thought and substance~
Life is such a wonder and I've been enjoying it so much.
And of course there are the bumps too.
But they make us stronger and cultivate compassion in our hearts.
And still, there's such beauty that surrounds and amazing people to celebrate.
And here we go into the next season of this year!
I hope that yours will be filled pleasures and quiet times of
resting in your special place reading or listening..
To your heart or .....
the buzzing of the bees and songs of happy birds.
Thank you for coming by!
Sending many good wishes your way.
