As I strolled with my camera recently I just noticed how much structural
elements are being used as a backdrop for showing off a beautiful
vase, flowers, or bust.
There were windows, screens, concrete bench and table, plus ladders.
They just speak to finishing with a frame, a statement of delight.
When you think of decorating your world,
do you consider structural backdrops?
Even if you don't, just enjoy the tour.
It is where I go for a time of quiet reflection,
a time with my camera and to view beauty.
Where do you venture for a time of quiet reflection?
Happy weekend, dear friends!
May the sun shine upon you and delight your heart.
Sweet little girl twins. They had to be bottled fed for awhile.
Cleaning the barn.
Tucked in amongst the trees, a future venue for weddings.
Oh silly chicken, where are you going?
The quick escape artist, Wilbur.
You are too fat to escape your pen again.
Ha! You naughty little pig.
Have you ever dreamed of having a farm?
The song runs through my head of Old MacDonald.
Recently I visited this sweet little farm
where a dream is coming true.
A "niece" (really my cousins daughter), but we call each other
niece and aunt; she had a dream of such a farm.
Her husband caught the dream along with her
and their dreams came true.
How fun to walk around this farm and see dreams coming true.
The vintage barn in the trees will one day be set up for weddings.
My cousin is going to plant baby kiwi on some of the acreage.
I will share with you as the farm grows and flourishes.
A dream come true for this young family.
Do you still have a dream? May it come true in ways yet unimagined.
Many things bring great delight to me: tea, gardens, flowers, outdoors, food, and friends that cross my path. These all make my heart sing with small chuckles, giggles, laughter, and tears. It is my desire to seek beauty all around me.
