Happy Valentine’s Day friends!!!! I have to admit to being a non-Valentine person myself (my hubby and I believe everyday should be Valentines), and hate how today has become such a commercial, contrived ”thing”. Nevertheless I have some lovely pictures to share with you all today that fit the theme of the day – so these are sending you all a little bit of love from me!!
I met an amazing new friend yesterday. Elizabeth contacted me last week about helping her with taking pictures of her products, which I was happy to do. She arrived at my door yesterday with the most beautiful bunch of red, pink and orange zinnias out of her garden!! So lovely. It’s seldom one sees zinnias in the shops nowadays. My Granny used to grow them so they evoked lovely memories for me!! Remember those days when pink and red or pink and orange were just “not done” – I love the combination!!
Elizabeth makes the most beautiful cards and artworks using tiny glass beads. I will share more images of her beautiful creations soon, but today am sharing a framed red heart. Her work is extremely detailed and neat, and nothing is random. Have a close look at the heart – and then think that she is an amputee, and does this without the hands and fingers that we take for granted everyday.
Elizabeth you inspire me and have made me look at the world and myself very differently since I met you yesterday!! And a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you!!!
