Day 135: Faded Florals

Remember those roses from ages ago?  They dried beautifully, and I just don't want to let them go. 

So I took some pictures.

Cos that's what we do around here.

I love how they dried with such delicate, papery sweetness.

And then *sigh* I pulled them apart and put 'em in a bowl, so I could enjoy them just a wee bit longer.

Just love the faded, old-fashioned colors. 
Thanks for lingering a little longer, sweet flowers.

I've been given this award by Suzicate at The Water Witch's Daughter, who I've just recently run into and who I love.  She is just so funny--but heartfelt.  Check out her place, OK?


To accept this award I have to list ten things that make me happy.


Family, friends, testimony, snuggles with kids, listening to daughter read, warm toes, getting a break from cooking occasionally, baking (and eating) decadent desserts, getting lost in a good book, and playing the piano until my shoulders and back hurt.

And now 10 blogs that I love.  The problem is that I'm fairly new, and have been tagged a few times, so I don't know that I have ten more blogs that I haven't mentioned previously that I can post here!  But I'll try.  And if I mention you here, and you don't wish to play, I completely understand!  I just think your great and want to send people your direction.  No obligation to play is being asked, here.  Also, if you're on my blogroll and I haven't mentioned you yet--I apologize.  I simply can't remember who and who I haven't mentioned before, so please feel free to play.

Take Note (She probably doesn't even know me!  I just bumped into her place yesterday!)
A Design So Vast (Just found her today!)
I Can Do Lots of Things (Just found her as well, and I'm loving it!  Sweet and funny!)

And I'm out of my list, methinks!  I'll try to come up with three more, but right now, it's past midnight!  I'm off to sleepy-land.
