may flowers


starting my week off right
with a
 bouquet of bliss

You have it in your Power

Oh my precious one,

I am starting it off HERE AT HOME, hearing the birds singing their lungs out in my garden, and creating some new things for my Etsy shop! NEXT WEEK IS MY LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!! So my friend, you have three weeks left of instruction? YOU CAN DO THIS! Our time came so fast and now it is presentations to parents, classroom clean up, talent show, and before I know it, the last day of school. Bittersweet? A bit maybe. Thinking about all the years combined gives me joy in knowing that God accorded this opportunity for me to have the most honorable paid job. The first honorable job is to be a parent.....

BLESS YOU DEAREST and this photo collage is stunning!! LOVE! Anita

My week starts filled with beautyful memories .
It has been the week of Eva's first birthday and all went more than well .
Thanks to our little girl who was amazing like she always is.
Her parents were nervous ......
And I experienced all from the grandmother-view .
I moved on in life .
Have a wonderful week sweetest filled with all the flowers May can bring ....

you know that you are the only one out there that has a batting average of 1000!!!!! in case you are not into baseball...that is PERFECTION!!!! each and every post make me happy -- it touches a special spot in my mind or memory...this one brings me tears but good tears -- my mother use to grow peonies and they are a huge part of my childhood memories...i always thought they were tiny little pink trees because they stood so high and tall -- she had this shade and then deeper pink and I thought the were amazing as I still do! Thank you for the simple beauty and yet another memory brought back to life of my mom! (hugs) my friend!!!

Madelief said...

Dear Koralee,

I missed so many of your beautiful photo's the past two weeks! Just had a quick scroll through them.

Your bouquet of bliss looks wonderful! Aren't the prettiest flowers in bloom at the moment?!

Wish you a happy new week!

I started my week off by going outside in my bathrobe early this morning and taking some pictures with my micro lens. I found a sweet ladybug sitting on a daisy bud, so regal and beautiful. Love following the path of flowers. Your photos always inspire me.

Tracey Fisher said...

It's my 20th anniversary next week and you reminded me to get some peonies. I had a whole bunch on that day. Have a great week!

So beautiful!!! Lovin' that gorgeous rose tablecloth or fabric!! Have a lovely week my friend!! xo Heather

Maria said...

That's a beautiful sentiment, Koralee!

I can certainly be a thorn ~ but hope and pray that I'm more often a flower ~
Complaining comes too easily ... counting our blessings takes more insight and discipline~ until we SEE how many they are!
I wish you a wonderful new week, Koralee, with many flowers along your paths,
~ always ~
Maria

Hi! I love your photos!! Have a happy day! xxx riitta sinikka

i.ikeda said...

Yes, the week is starting out right. Of course it always helps to stop by your lovely corner on the internet and get inspired. And just to clarify why my blog looks different... I actually have two blogs now - I separated the crafting from the illustration/photography. The one you have been visiting lately is the illustration blog and it looks a little different from the crafting blog. I guess it is confusing, and I'm sorry about that!

Rubyred said...

I love those happy flowers Koralee!
Been having a flowery week myself, lots of potting up in the lovely sunshine!

red ticking said...

Tracey Ayton Photography said...

Looking at your beautiful pics always start my week off right .... so inspirational. I would've love to meet you at the market. It's always so nice to put a face behind the blog ...... although, I know we have pics but still it would be nice to meet. Did you buy anything?

pollydove said...

I am in the process of doing some major yard "re-do" ... I had my kids out digging up an area where I no longer want a planter but just grass. I forgot to tell them where to stop and before I knew what was up, my budding peony bush was in the trash. Oopie do! Guess I will find a place to plant some more! I DO love this image of your beautiful peonies though! You are a flower too, my friend! xoxo
