So Much Beauty!

I know that it is expensive to send flowers, so how about just a grocery store bouquet once in a while to say “I Love You?” That sure does it for me.

Another beautiful thing to do for someone? Why not take a minute and send a card? I really enjoy something in the mail besides an advertisement or a bill, don’t you? Well, if you like it, maybe someone else would too. I often think of things that way. Anyway, my church friend Patty is the queen of sending really thoughtful cards, and she has got me doing it too. Maybe if YOU do it too, we will catch on.

All Kinds of Lovely Stuff

This is my back yard. Sometimes my lawn doesn’t look the best, but I concentrate on the trees which are just fantastic. I LOVE trees and I have plenty. Oh, in the winter most of the trees loose their leaves where I live and I don’t like that, but just like a little miracle, they come back every Spring.

Color Is The NEW Thing!

I recently read in Better Homes and Gardens Magazine (Now called simply BHG) that color is the big new thing. Well, I am sorry, you guys, but I have been into that for as long as Alvin and the Chipmunks have had on their green, red and blue shirts. That’s quite a while too!

Anyway, the June edition of BHG has a big article on new uses for and new hues of COLOR! It’s really interesting and features a favorite of mine-Leanne Ford.

I love sail boat life. Something about it is just good for the soul. It makes one really appreciate God’s gifts and it is an inspiration to work to preserve those gifts. Water, wind, clean air, birds, and just that way of life that brings quiet and peace.

Our boat is currently at Annapolis and we love it there! What a lovely spot!!

In The Eyes Of The Beholder?

I think that this is such a beautiful Still Life. In reality though it is only a basket, a little plant, a flower and a bunch of fruit. What do you think makes it beautiful. Well, I think that it is the arrangement. I love to put things together and will, in fact, take apart and rearrange the same items many times over. For me, the fun is in creating something that is beautiful to my eye and part of that beauty is simply because I like it. What do you think?

Corny/Not Corny!

Give Me A Break-Corny Can Be Good

I have been out of commission for a while and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for your patience and your wonderful comments. Like most Bloggers, I thrive on feedback and comment. I know this sounds corny, but please do keep it up. The more the better!! Thanks again so much. I have been Skating Uphill for a bit, but as the Uphill Skater likes to say,

“Skating Uphill is really hard, but when you get to the top, the view is worth it!”

Keep that in mind. I always do.

Eye of the Beholder

Do you see beauty?

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder creating the impression that somehow there is a standard for beauty-a definition so to speak of what is beautiful and what is not. I totally disagree. There are some things that are universally beautiful and to prove my point I am sharing this picture!
