The air was so heavy with the scent of spring time flowers, I just had to pick more daffodils today. I can honestly say that I never remember my daffodils having such a lovely scent to them. Perhaps the long drawn out, cool and rainy spring has made all the difference.
It's rather stormy outside right now, so I am playing around with textures from a couple of my favorite sources just for something to do. Click on the links to check them out if you haven't done so already. I am positive you will like them just as much as I do!
If you haven't noticed already from some of the images I have been sharing here ~ I am loving textures! Kim Klassen has been kind enough to share some of her lovely masterpieces and I have been in heaven.
This last week she gave us a challenge to use two of her creations on a photograph
they were Silence and Sweettreat
First I wanted to share my original image SOOC
And here are two versions using both textures on the same photo but
with two different looks...
I love how the use of textures and subtle changes can change the entire mood of a picture. A big "thank you" Kim for sharing and inspiring.
Off to see more great work ~ have a beautiful day!!
I have been thinking about my grandparents lately ~ I guess it's only natural, March 17th would have been their wedding anniversary and we always gathered at their home to have Corned beef and cabbage with Irish soda bread to celebrate. I sure do miss them both as do many others.
In celebration I wanted to share this Irish Blessing with you. It hung on the kitchen wall of their home for as long as I can remember.
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Wishing you a Happy St. Patrick's day!!!!
I will be fixing the Corned beef this year (without the cabbage since the hubby doesn't like the smell) but there wil be pleanty of potatoes to go along side. Still thinking I might make some soda bread.....
