Pretty Collages Revisited


Staying close to Mom these days...
I was looking through some older collages 
that I may have posted here before...

Love these sweet spring flowers.


 Blue blossoms...layered with text.


...and one of my favorites....lilacs.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Although I could not get to Renninger's as planned...
...there is a possibility that I might make it
 to a yard sale down the street tomorrow morning.
Always hopeful!

Beautiful images as always Laura. Makes me think of Spring....
I do hope that you are spending as much time as possible with your mum - I can just tell she needs you and your siblings more than ever at the moment. Cherish every second (as I know you will).
My thoughts are with you this weekend my friend. X

Sometimes a slowdown in our busy lives yields a chance for reflection...
This is a difficult time for you but the images you have chosen to share are beautiful.
Take care and a little time for yourself... even if it is just the yard sale down the road.

Hi, This is my first visit to your blog, oh my, what a treat. I luv your digital style, so soft and dreamy.
The photos on your side bar are lovely, especially like your bell jars. Where did you find them?
Congrats on being published in Artful Blogging, hope to find an issue this week-end.
I am adding your blog to my favorites! Ü
Hope you make it to the yard sale.

Laura -
Bless you and your sweet Mama~~

The collages are lovely - how I long for those spring flowers~ lilacs are my favorite also. Spring is just around the corner (fingers crossed!)~~ we have all certainly suffered out this long winter.

I hope the sunshine and warmth of spring will be a blessing to your Mother - perhaps she can bask in the sunlight and it will fill her soul with a peace.

I am offering up prayers for you both.

Vicki

ps - if you get to go to a yard sale - perhaps you will find one of my bird nests! (it is an inside joke LOL!! - you will get it when you read my current blog posting.)

Simply Bungalow said...

Just lovely. The print is so beautiful behind the flowers.

Laurie said...

You have such a good eye for beautiful things! That photo of your grandmother is so cute -- and there were so many more girls than boys in her class (was it a class photo?) I am wondering how the tool box you found with your father will look all cleaned up!

I wanted to let you know how this post just touched me so. Many blessings to you & your Mom.
Your photos are gorgeous.
