Thankful Thursday

 

 

These two, omygosh my heart!  😍

 

I got to spend the day with my daughter and my grandchildren yesterday, and I’m so grateful for the much-needed snuggle time!

💞

 

What are you thankful for today?

Mandala Monday ~ the Heart

Within the heart lies deep mysteries

 

It is a multi-faceted gem of exquisite beauty

resting on a bed of delicate flowers grown in an ancient garden tended with care

its borders surrounded by a heavenly fragrance  Oh ‘precious scent’! 

 

Within the heart lies deep mysteries

 

the greatest of these…

 

Love

Another experiment using pressed flowers, and incorporating one of my favorite crystals as the center of this heart-shaped mandala.  I can’t even tell you how much I enjoyed creating this one!  💜

 

Wishing you beauty and joy, and a wonderful week!

Lots of This…

Wishing you all lots of this today…

Well… not just today, but every day! 💕

I found my little stash of pressed flowers that I had packed away in an old box and thought I’d play around a bit arranging some flowery flat lays.  Some of these flowers are from gardens I had way back in the early 90’s!

I’d like to experiment doing more of this type of thing and maybe even try creating some mandalas using these old pressed flowers.  It’s snowing yet again today (huge, pretty flakes!), so finding creative indoor activities is always good. 😉

Thanks for letting me share, have a beautiful day, and Happy Valentine’s Day!  💘

Mandala Monday ~ Valentiney ❤

 

I haven’t much of a chance to get outside to create any of my nature mandalas lately.  Whenever the temps haven’t been -30 windchill, it’s been snowing like crazy and the only thing I’ve had the chance to do when I’m out there is shovel.  To be honest, the snow has sort of been kicking my ass haha!  But it sure is pretty and I refuse to begrudge it.  Last night when it finally stopped snowing and I went out there to shovel, it was absolutely breathtaking (and not because of the cold 😉), dusk was falling and the colors were so soft and lovely. 😍

In between the frigid temps and the snow, I’ve been nice and warm inside, painting.  I got a really good deal on some little 4 x 4 wrapped canvases a while back and I thought I’d experiment a bit with painting mandalas on them using some Valentiney colors.  💘

Painting a round design on a square shape is not very forgiving and you can really tell how crooked they are.  I think I might have to try to figure out how to draw some sort of grid on them before I start painting so they’re not so crooked.  The only thing is… I never know ahead of time what sort of design I’m going to paint, it just sort of becomes whatever it becomes…

You would think that as I’m working out from the center and going around and around that it would sort of automatically be centered on the canvas, but apparently not, in my case. 🙃  I need more practice making my dots more uniform in size.  Good thing I have all these little canvases to practice on. 😉

 

Stay cozy, my friends!  Wishing you all a wonderful, love-filled day! ❤

One Day

I dreamt

 

our love kept us warm through the cold, dark night

and we awoke entwined in the morning light

 

one day, my darling…

Be My Escape

Nestled within the center of your loving embrace

a shelter from the blazing sun

I kiss your beautiful face

 

You are my escape

Wish You Were Here

A crescent moon dangles in the blue sky like a sparkling jewel, as dusk settles in and the last remnant of light glows softly on the horizon

It’s too warm for a spring evening, but the warm breeze feels good against my skin, the heady scent of lilacs in full bloom fills the air

and fills me

with longing, lust, and love

 

Wish you were here, my darling…
