Ranuculus Flower by Becky Bishop

I visited one of my favorite stores in the area (Flora)- which is a beautiful botanical, whimsical florist shop. I always leave so inspired. They have the most interesting flowers and displays. This is a “Ranunculas” flower. I thought that the Peony was my favorite but after coming across this one, I am not so sure anymore. It is an absolute beautiful perfect flower. I even wondered if they were real. They are! Enjoy. πŸ™‚

Something occurred to me last night.
As I look through my camera lense, I am searching for something beautiful. That is what I want to share but out of my mouth comes complaining!!
Should not our thoughts and words be the same way as looking through the camera lense? Searching for what is good.. What is lovely?
Ephesians 4:29….”let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouth but only what is helpful for building others up..”

I pray you have a beautiful day. Xo

The Cinderella Flower Arrangement~

20131007-183357.jpg
Had so much fun creating this beauty of an arrangement!
I am currently inΒ  the process of trying to help my daughter plan her wedding. It was quite sudden and I would love to help with all of it. If anyone realizes the challenges of mother/daughter relationships, they may understand some of the emotions that come along with type of an event.

My love for flowers and being creative is coming to life though in this. I find myself telling people that after this is all said and done, I am going into the wedding business!

I know there are many people out there who I am sure cannot afford to rub two nickels together.
I would love to help someone like that with just a sweet bouquet from my garden or maybe some homemade cupcakes,
decorated on my new 3-tiered cake stand that I picked up new at a yard sale last weekend.

I have my first opportunity this coming weekend, as a minister friend of ours asked me and my husband if we would “witness” a couples wedding. I am very excited! I have been asked to be the photographer and she has graciously agreed to let me practice my bouquet making for her! Very excited!

So, this was an arrangement that I just went out and enjoyed making. It made me smile. I hope it made you smile too. πŸ™‚
