Happy texture from Shadowhouse Creations

Absolutely beautiful. Sunflowers have always been one of my favorites and I was fortunate enough to see several fields of sunflowers two years ago driving from Paris to Italy. My husband even stopped so I could take pictures!

Oh, the stuff you can do to create beauty from beauty. I mean the bush is gorgeous and so are the pictures you created. Looks like so much fun to do.

Michaele said...

You are just having way too much fun! Who needs a garden : )

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

Beautiful shots there gal, LOVE the sun coming in from the backside of the flower.

Hope all is well.... I am not having much computer time so I know I am missing much. Still busy de-junking and donating. I am determined not to move in this new house with what we have now. Less is more for me now. I find stuff is burdensome in a big way. We close on April 12th and will move in some time the first week or second week in May. So I will not be on line much...

Miss checking in on you and some other blogs.

Ginny said...

Awesome, AMAZING!!!! 1 and 5 for me! I wish I could do stuff like this. But even if I could, I wouldn't know when to apply it.

Maple Lane said...

You are fabulous! The third from the bottom is GORGEOUS...STUNNING!!! The last three are my favorite!

Like looking at a smile filled with sunshine.

Cranberry Morning said...

Okay, this is probably a stupid question, but do you also 'follow' blogs with Feedly? So for example, if I have a giveaway and people have to 'follow' Cranberry Morning, do they do it through Feedly when GFC goes away - or what?

Aren't you glad you don't live across the street from me. LOL

George said...

These are absolutely gorgeous.

Rose said...

SquirrelQueen said...

I just love sunflowers but it will be awhile before we see them here. The Mexican Sunflower bush is gorgeous. I agree that it is an awesome sight.
