Word - Reflection

The word for this week is reflection.

Its verb meaning - to bend or cast back; to give back a likeness or image of as a mirror does; to bring as a result; to cast reproach or blame; ponder, meditate.

This little wind chime hangs from a fan in my mom's house. I am always enamored by its ability to reflect light and shadow and create a beautiful abstract piece of art. I choose a darker photo to show off the hints of brightness everywhere. It also shows the flower in all of its glory. Seek it out, look beyond and find a reflection of you this week!

Life's Journey

I have been reading Liz Lamoreux's Inner Excavation and it has you put photos to a story which I absolutely find invigorating. I grabbed my camera, gathered a box my favorite things, found a couple quotes I liked and what you see is the result of my idea. I love that the car is in focus making you think of travel, adventure, exploration and where you are heading? So, my question for you this weekend, is your journey all you wanted? Because only you have the key to change it, what are you waiting for? Set the course and let the journey begin!

I See You!

I am totally captivated with gazing balls and how they view the yard. Can you see me? I can see you! Knew that would make you smile today *giggle, giggle*. This is my moms backyard and yes, she loves everything that sparkles so I always find a lot of tresasures to photograph while I'm there visiting. We share the love of flowers and just sitting on the swing enjoying life's daily pleasures, not to mention the birds, butterflies and squirrels to entertain us. How do you enjoy the day to day life you are leading?

Solar Ball

My mom has these little solar butterflies in some of her backyard planters and I am just intrigued by them. Not only are they an interesting color combination, the copper butterfly and the shimmering luminescence of the solar ball. But the idea that the sun will make it glow softly in the evening is just magical to me. I wanted your eye to really look at all the fun stuff in the ball and the interesting texture it is. Now, close your eyes and imagine a slight glow - pure wonderment!

Happy Independence Day!

I created this little card last year to signify the Fourth of July. I put a piece of red fabric behind it to really give it the red, white and blue color scheme. I used one of my favorite stamp faces and just applied color to give her some spunkiness. The bee just buzzed around to be placed on and I so wanted to write "beeautiful" so it made sense to the design but in the end, I didn't.

I enjoyed fireworks last night and although I am much older now, it always transports me to my childhood with all the "oohhhs" and "aahhhhs" of the evening. I hope you have celebrated with friends and family today, if not, Happy Independence Day from me to you!
