Sweet tea in the morning







"One must bow one's head
to one's heart"

So beautiful...

The gold leaf lettering...

Thank you.

The purple beauty pulled me in, the words started my morning.
Thanks.

What patience that must've taken. I like the quote too - so obvious, yet sometimes so hard to live by.

Hi Kathleen and well done Meredith! Such a labour of love! Enjoy your weekend.

7,000 rose petals?! that's impressive.

Kathleen said...

@Renie:You just never know where inspiration will arise. These words capture perhaps my biggest struggle. Not over-thinking matters that only the heart can understand in a language all its own. Thanks for stopping by!

Have a lovely weekend.

Kathleen said...

@Alix: So glad you enjoyed this!

Kathleen said...

@Gail: Can you imagine the hours it took to write on 7,000 rose petals? If you like the picture, she has 2 other images on her Web site, both equally beautiful.

Kathleen said...

@J: What is it about heads that just won't give over to our hearts? The first time I understood how important that is, much in my life began to change!

Kathleen said...

@Derrick: Well put!

Kathleen said...

@ Ellen: Wonder how much time that took? But I imagine there must have been something very transformative about the experience (besides carpal tunnel!)

sweet words :)

I tend to overthink things, too, and sometimes it's best to just go with the heart.
I'd never, ever have the patience to paint all those petals. Amazing!

Kathleen said...

@ Ribbon: Indeed :^)

@ Janie: I miss so much when I live in my head. Those rose petals are pretty astonishing, I agree!
