Photo Challenge....

I went back and read some more about the photo challenge.. It was supposed to be shiny things, sorry. Silly me. I found this picture I took a few months ago. I had borrowed my Dad's marble collection to do this shot. I then filled the red tin heart with sequins... I hope you like it.

Beautiful Donna at Made in Heaven is hosting a photo challenge today please check out the other participants. I forgot to write this last night!

I can't seem to get her link to work on my post but her site is on my favorites.

Why do we love certain houses, and why do they seem to love us?

It is the warmth of our individual hearts reflected in our surroundings.

The gazing ball and ivy photo I took in my Mother's yard. The ivy was a present from my sister and I many years ago. It was a small piece that Mom planted on a Red Bud tree stump. It has flourished.

The Gnome and the flowers are in my front yard. Elizabeth got the Gnome for me a few weeks ago. I love it...

I captured the photo of the Mourning Dove in my front yard. She let me get within a foot of her. I just adore her sweet little face...

Pam, Thank you for the compliment. My Dad is slowly recovering, but he has ups and downs. He has to start radiation in about a month. He also will have the feeding tube until July. He is so hungry and weak.
I feel so sad when I se him, but try to be upbeat.
He loved your card and the locket. I am so sorry that I haven't mentioned it. I have had my mind elswhere.
Sending you love, Nita

Hi Nita,

I wish I could take pictures like you do. They are beautiful, just like your heart that I see coming back. I have gazing balls in my garden and I love to get lost in them. I continue to think of and pray for you daily my friend. Asking God to pour out His joy all over your days to lift your spirit. I love you.

Laurie in Ca.
