Fantastic framing! I don't think I've seen that flower before. It's lovely, especially in juxtaposition with the weathered wood.

Simply brilliant elegance! Is it lavender? My most favorite! There is nothing better than to see creations elegance captured so gracefully and you do it soo utterly marvelously!! thank you! This site brings me such peace after a mad cap day of being forced to keep up with people who simply cannot appreciate a bit of elegance as what is found here. I wish you peace for the evening and joy in the morning. Love and blessings and thank you so ;=o)
