The Bluebird lens did a wonderful job and Mrs. Bluebird made some lovely mosaics. I can see you must have had an amazing time. Surrounded by many inspiring women and lots of colored prettiness!
You cherish your sweet memories, my friend. Soooooo glad you're back. Now hurry, your students are waiting for the other Mrs. Bluebird.
Have a happy week, sweet Koralee xxxxx

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
Isn't it something to see what people can do with the simplest of treasures ~ I think that's how God must see us too ~ we are His treasures ~ look at how wonderfully we are made and what we can do through Him!

Thank you for sharing your photos with us! The milk glass vase is catching my eye today... I love the printed papers coming out of it. {getting an idea for my desk at school}
Love your friends collage ~ When I see these talented women in WWC, I'll smile and think of you too :D
Koralee ~ You are such a beautiful steward of His gifts.
... you bless us each day ♥
love,
Maria

Wow Koralee ~

You are fabulous with that "bluebird" camera or yours! {The photo of the fruit is to die for ~ I do not remember it tasting that good.}

I am so glad that I met you on the bus to the Junk Bonanza last week. You were a delight...and since you did not have a business card with you, fortunately I found your link through your new best friend's {Karen} blog.

I want to add your blog to my list of blog beauties ~ it's so much fun to read.

Stay in touch and I will to.

Ciao bella,
Suzanne
