Do you see the simple, classic beauty?

It seems I always return to nature for inspiration.
The beauty of nature is classic and timeless.
When I create a piece of artwork that is nature inspired,
I love thinking that in maybe ten years or so,
it would still be enjoyed for it's classic style.

Below, a cutting I pressed, backed by burlap and then scanned for you...
Feel free to use this if you'd like!!

A few quotes I've gathered too,
feel free to take these as well sweet friends....
Just click image, then click it again to fully enlarge
then right click and select "save image as" ~

Wishing you a beautiful Wednesday dear friends!!
hugs and love,

Mornin', Dawn. I hope the sun rose to a beautiful Georgia day for you. It's going to be another hot, but fabulous day here in south Florida.

I've always been a Nature Girl at heart, growing up more in the country than the city. Husband and I had as many as 350 acres at one time in Wisconsin (we're not farmers, either), and left 90 acres behind when we moved south. I miss it. I miss the quiet, the flora and fauna and the pure bliss of country living...but not the snow! Our three acres in FL is too "close" for me. Someday, I hope to live on "land" again...with a huge, old barn (or IN a huge, old barn!).

Thanks for your images, and for inspiring me to "go on" today.

Oh, Dawn, I am such a Nature Girl. Spending time with God's creations always restores my soul, brings me peace and gives me joy.

I am sure the artwork you create will always seem timeless. I love it!

Have a wonderful day!
