Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

And my dear friend, you were THE ONE who taught me how to compose on the computer screen....with your words and style and vision of inspiration, you encouraged me to find fewer but more striking words and images to follow suit....you will always remain to me, an artist with more than just inspiration, but as an artist's artist....

Many happy wishes for this day, Anita

When I was a young child, I loved to play bride. And, a single bloom from a hydrangea was always my bouquet.

Lovely post, Karen.

This has got to be the most beautiful mosaic post I have EVER seen! That blue color is just luscious & all your wonderful borders just set it off perfectly.

You are truly an artist with a keyboard instead of a paintbrush!
