Floral Spring

Processed with textures by Kim Klassen for Texture Tuesday.
Yes, spring is all about flowers for me. Each week, I can't wait to buy new flowers at my local farmer's market or Trader Joe's. I've accumulated so many vases, jars and other objects to put them in that I've run out of room for them all. My absolute favorite are the ranunculus but unfortunately, their season is short and it's now over. I do have a ton of them that I dried and I don't have room for them either!

My posting has become for infrequent as I've been posting on Instagram almost daily. While I prefer photos taken with my DSLR, it's just so easy and convenient to take them with my iPhone and post them. I invite you to follow me there - just click the button at the top of this page to find me.

I've also been spending time practicing my calligraphy. I took a wonderful workshop recently called Petals and Penmanship were we did both calligraphy and floral arranging. It was taught by the amazing Maybelle Imasa. Other things keeping me busy include trying to keep up with the multitude of classes I'm enrolled in at any time, photographing new and old objects around my house, and a little remodeling. I recently had granite counters installed in my kitchen (along with a new faucet and sink), and marble countertops in my bathrooms. The kitchen cabinets were painted white and it's like having a brand new kitchen. Love!

However, what they say is true. One thing leads to another and now I need some painting and drywall work done, but one step at a time! I'd love to slow down and enjoy the journey but I'm so type A, it's a bit challenging. Well, one breath at a time!
