Seeing the beauty ~

Several bad storms came through our state last night. We even had tornado warnings and hail!
I think that they had damage north of where we live. Our area mostly had terrible winds and downpours. I captured a few shots of the sky that just took my breath away.

It's so wonderful to see the beauty in things around you ~










Then it got a little spooky ~




All is calm now, thank goodness. I think everything really needed the drink. We'll soon be seeing things budding out and blooming!



Here are a few more photos from Scott's Antique Market that I didn't show before:



Love this bed!!



Even an old car was for sale!



I'm enjoying the week with the boys out of school for winter break. I haven't been very creative but feel the pull of my artroom.....


Wishing you a great Thursday sweet friends,
xxoo, Dawn

Isn't it odd that something so scarey as a storm can also be such a beautiful thing worthy of a picture. Love the vintage lacey pillows and I would love to have a bed like that! Enjoy your day!

Hard to believe something so beautiful can be so destructive.

The incredible thing about God's paintings is that they are always changing! Every second something new happens! Thank you for capturing some of those moments for us!

I'm glad that you all weathered the storm without incident! We only had a bad thunderstorm roll through- no hail, thank goodness.
The sirens went off four times though, so I guess something must have been nearby. Freaky weather- hot yesterday and cold today. I'm ready for Spring.

This is my first visit to your beautiful blog and art. Your pictures of the stormy sky are gorgeous. I am also captivated by your artwork. How wonderful to be so creative and be able to spend time making such fabulous things. I'm going to post some of your work on my blog with a link, if you don't mind.

Sharon said...

So glad you were safe. Those pictures gave me the chills. We get the storms like that when they bump up against the mountains. The thunder is really frightening. Hope sunshine is all you see for the coming days. Sharon
