lynda-navarro's-hydrangeawas sent to me from my friend Lynda Naranjo.


lynda-navarro's-hydrangeaShe also sent this beautiful card with her lovely lacy Hydrangea.


On Lynda's blog she shares her love of photography, and with each new composition I am inspired.

Lynda's Hydrangeas

lynda-navarro's-hydrangeaThank you Lynda, I have your card and photograph on an easel on my desk.

Among the Hedgerows

lynda-navarro's-hydrangeaLynda always seems to inspire me on Serendipity's time. I am hand-painting a guest book for my daughter's friend Amanda. She is having Hydrangeas for her bridal bouquet. My gift to her will be watercolor Hydrangeas dancing through the pages of her Wedding Guest book. Now, thanks to Lynda, I have a model which will inspire my work.

lynda-navarro's-hydrangeaYears ago I met Lynda through blogging when she was Among the Hedgerows. I fell madly in love with her tags and paper creations. I knew then that we would go together like A Wink and a Smile, and so the song for this post.

Good Morning Karen, Oh I love the hydrangeas and the beautiful work of your friend. She has such an eye to capture the beautiful.

Your daughter's friend will love the wedding book and treasure it always. She is a lucky girl.

I love your idea to put together a list of wonderful places to thrift shop and treasure hunt in your area. Great for reference and travelers. Like, if bloggers ever come to town.
So nice to see you this morning dear one!
Have a blessed day.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Beautiful photos Lynda! Hydrangaes are so beautiful, Karen, your artwork will be a great gift. we call flowers like Hydrangea 'thankful' flowers, with almost nothing they blossom for months, that's thankful for what you have, don't you think?
Have a lovely day!

Oh, thank you for sharing these beautiful images. Hydrangeas are my favorite flowers, and the photography is stunning. I'm sure that your hand-painted guest book for Amanda will be one of her most cherished treasures.

I'm popping over to visit Lynda's blog. Enjoy your day!

Lynda Naranjo said...

Dear Karen, thank you so much for these lovely words! I feel so humbled especially when it's been your art that has inspired me! I can envision the delicate hydrangeas that will grace the pages of Amanda's guestbook ... I hope you'll share photos of it with us!
Thank you again, dear friend!
