Grace And Lovely

I’ve had the following post in the back of my Mind for a little while now, and when I saw a post over at [Audrey]‘s blog, I decided to create the post that was in “Mind Storage”.Β  Thank you, Audrey, for the Inspiration!Β  I only realized after I wrote the actual post that I used the same word, adorned, as you did.Β  I really hope you don’t mind.Β  I am giving YOU credit again for that Inspiration as well!

I also would like to dedicate this post to two other friends who are really into jewelry and fashion, both who I admire so much for what they are doing.Β  [Irene] , the Jewelry Queen, and [Melissa],Β  the Fashion Queen, please enjoy this post, knowing I envisioned you when I was photographing this image.Β  Thank you both for the Inspiration!!

And thank you to all three of you for your friendship and your continual support of Petals.

For all who come to Petals today, please enjoy “Grace And Lovely”.

    1. I could not help but miss these, Marissa. It took me quite a while to find this, walking around this tree, seeing what She was presenting me with. I made sure both background and the image were Perfectly Blended, simple yet elegant. When I saw what you just viewed, my Heart knew, “Yes, this is THE one to take.” So I did. Bless you for your glorious comments, my friend. I really enjoy them!!! Love, Amy ❀

      1. Yes, simple but elegant, that’s exactly it. It’s funny because a lot of these shots are of things I’m sure I would just pass by if I were going about my day. It’s so nice that your blog allows me to focus on the beauty!

      2. I thank you so much, Marissa!! One of my goals is to show those who come here things that they just wouldn’t even think of looking for. Perhaps I am allowing a little room in each person who does come to let curiosity to grow so that the unseen now is seen. How about that? πŸ˜‰

    1. Irene, it was just like I said. I really had you and Melissa on my mind when I saw these tree seedlings. They just reminded me of earrings. I am so happy you saw this post and came to comment!! Have a great day, friend! Love, Amy ❀

    1. Oh, Lisa!!! What is happening with me is just so incredible, leaving me in awe of me. Honestly! The delight I feel, the connection ever deeper with Mother that I just did not see coming, the Gifts of Love I am receiving through Petals and now my Life, all just leaving me so humbled and so grateful that I did not give up, even when I wanted to. The deeper you dive, the more pearls you do find. Mother’s Secrets are Infiite and I am BEing allowed to know them. I think I have left planet earth and am now existing in a Higher Realm, that which is called Pure Unconditional Love. How sweet the Victory!! I Love you, you Beautiful Shining Star, my Soul Sister!

      4. Excellent idea!!! I will look at my photos as well, Lisa. When I SEE it, I KNOW it is the one. That is how it works with me. Also, the Light is perfect today, and I have some amazing flowers to capture. That being said, I have a “feeling” one of them might be the ONE for this post. We will stay in touch!!! Thank YOU, Flow!

      5. I’m not sure what your Happy Box is, but just the name in itself is good enough for me. I also THINK I saw the perfect image for the words. I’ll let you know. (SMILE!) I still have yet to take it. Cross your fingers that the breezy wind dies down this evening. Love you, Lisa!! Oh, this is SO much FUN!!!! LOL (((HUGS))) Amy ❀

I really look forward to this!!! Have a great nite. I’m calling it a day! I answered SO many notifications today my head is swirling! That and I have been going goin going … Whew!! My bed is calling ….. *sighs* …..

      7. How exciting! I can feel your energy. The way I see it, we have two options. You can post your photo as your creation and I can make a HB with one of my hubbies photos. This would be an add-on inspired by your words for a post, OR you can email it to me so I can whip it together using your photo and words. I am good either way my dear. bloomlisa@me.com

      8. I’m familiar with option 2. The day I post my post, I will email it to you. AND I plan on linking that to your site as well, because you are the Inspiration behind the words. I will be in touch, my friend. More then likely I will create this post this coming weekend and have it up on Petals for next week. How happy it makes ME to know together we are touching more people. OH FOR THE JOY!!! Love, Amy ❀

  2. Thank you, Amy. Always a pleasure to inspire you, however, you inspire us daily and that is an incredible blessing. Your photography is beautiful. You make people smile every day. We are thankful for you. Lovely capture and such gorgeous prose to go along with it. You are a true talent, Ma’am. Thank you for mentioning me, however, you really didn’t have to….humbled beyond words. Hugs. Have a fantastic day! β™‘β™‘

    1. I am the one who is Grateful to you, Aud. You are one of my very first followers and have stayed, and for this, my Heart is just so full. I thank YOU for having faith in me, even when I was bumbling around, not quite knowing what I was doing, nor my photography is what it is today. Even though my Life has gotten so busy, and I do not always comment at your blog, whenever I do see your work, I read it because I really enjoy it. When I saw your post about the red jewel everything just fell into place with this post. Please don’t call me Ma’am, for I am your friend, and your equal. I understand that term is considered a term of respect, so if that is what it is, OK then, I accept. Thank you. I totally respect you as well, straight from my Heart. I am thrilled you enjoyed this post and of course I didn’t have to do acknowledge you, silly, but I wanted to. SMILE! You are the glue that brought this post together! (((HUGS))) Amy ❀

      1. Feeling quite full of love, Amy. Your words mean so much, and I do enjoy your blog. Your friendship and attention to my words. You are the easiest person to approach on WP and you should know how important that trait is, my friend. You are so valued. I use Ma’am because I’ve been in the south too long. I see you as a sister and friend, indeed. Thanking you for showing me how love is used to build joy. I’m thankful for you. xxx Hugs, Amy. β™‘β™‘

      2. You’ve put tears in my eyes, my sweet friend. I had a “feeling” you are in the South, for it is a common expression of respect in that part of the states. Thank you for encouraging me in what I do here at WP, for there are days I honestly question if I am making any difference at all. Bless you from the bottom of my Heart for your words to me. I carry them with me, close to my Heart this day. (((HUGS))) Amy ❀

  4. Hi Amy,

    That’s lovely imagery complimented with the language you have used. For me, what at first sight appeared to be straggly stuff morphed into a completely different occurring as I read the words. Oh! The power of language……..

    1. Janice, you are so welcome. I do not like to put demands or pressure on anyone, so I ask the following with you knowing that. OK? IF I do not see your post, which I really want to read, could you get my attention by commenting on one of my posts that have comments open? Life right now is just so busy, and lately I am just so far removed from the blogging world. If you are not able to do this, I totally understand and will do my best to keep an eye out for it. I wish there was a different system in WP that would notify us when a post is published by someone we follow. We have to depend on the reader which is spotty at times, and if you don’t read the reader at the time someone posts something, you miss it. I basically now go to those blogs who show up at Petals when I can. Lately I haven’t been able to. 😦 Again, I really thank you! Love, Amy ❀

  5. Hi Amy!
    I feel I sort of owe you an apology/explanation, so I am here to give it to you, and of course visit Petals when you are so kind to visit Reflections.
    Last week when I got your comments expressing interest in my blog, I added you to my once-a-week Email list, so you could continue to get posts. The next morning, to my delight I had found you followed my blog. I am flattered and grateful, as I’m sure you know. However, now I can’t get you off my Email list. MailChimp has a reason– it won’t let me delete within 7 days sending, but I send once a week. If you don’t want to get my posts in your box and MailChimp, just click “unsubscribe” at the bottom of Wednesday’s MailChimp Email.
    I am delighted to have you as a follower. I’m sorry I “jumped the gun”.
    Janice

    1. Janice, please no apolgies necessary. OK? I put your website on my Home Screen so I have easy access to it. This way if I miss your email I can at my convenience go to your website. I really am not blogging right now, and in fact, seriously contemplating on not posting anything for a bit. Even during some very stressful periods of my life, I managed to post, many with comments closed and was not going to other blogs. Recently my Dad passed and I just don’t have the interest with Petals and blogging as I normally do. His passing is really hitting me hard and all I want to do is to plant flowers, work in my gardens having my hands in the dirt, be with my camera, be with my cats, read and basically just pull back doing minimal in Life. My gardens all of themselves, are just about taking all I have to give so on the days I “rest” I have no interest in blogging. My Heart just isn’t in it.
      This is a first for me, really walking away from Petals without posting since the time I first opened it …. 2.5 years. I have to focus on me rather then on others. I have become a motivator on WP, an encourager, one who spends hours talking to others. Now I must take time for me.
      Thanks for listening. Just wanted you to know IF you don’t see me around, you know why. I really am looking forward in reading your work how better to blog. Thank you from the bottom of my Heart. ❀

  6. Hi Amy,
    Thanks for visiting my site yesterday. I felt bad about something. You divulged personal info. to me, about your father, etc. and I don’t even know if I responded. I do appreciate the connection we’ve made. I’m sorry if I got busy. I hope I didn’t seem insensitive.
