Focus on Life: Week 15
Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime is hosting a year long challenge which is... sublime... as you'd expect with such a studio name. The challenge is named 'Focusing on Life' and every week Sally is sending a prompt on what should we focus the following week.
This week the prompt was... Aged Beauty
Our admiration of the antique is not admiration of the old, but of the natural. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
I think I am cheating (a bit) as I am not presenting you anything vintage or antique (God knows I could!) - I have a good reason for this: I did the taxes :) I am so happy, but by the time I was done - the light won't do justice to my aged beauties...
But I found a special beauty somewhere, in an old photograph - about 30 years old (maybe a little bit more):
My brother and I with the lambs - I must find a place to get William to hold newly born lambs... or any new born animals, for that matter. Look at the smiles on our faces - I guarantee you there isn't any other thing that can bring you happiness and pure joy as quickly and as natural as new born life!
It is my way of sharing beauty, indeed well aged :)
Please make sure you visit the rest of the group, gathered, as usual, at Miss Sally's for a coup of tea and a nice chat. This week it's guaranteed to be beautiful!
