A little Sneak & a Peek
Lotsa bolts


For those of you who have followed me for a while, you might remember these beauties that bloom outside my studio windows every late winter. The color and feel and shape of them is just unbelievable.

Usually I try to photo them alongside my daughter as a way of seeing her change and the blooms stay the same every year. I still hope to do that this year but so far life has gotten a bit in the way.




Look at those petals?!




I don't know if you remember but last week I promised everyone another great reveal. I still plan on getting that reveal to you soon! Unfortunately I had to go out of town quite suddenly due to some urgent family health issues. Wish it wasn't happening. Wish I could make it all go away. Wish that instead I was working on another great reveal. But it is not to be so today. Maybe tomorrow. One day at a time they say.

I might write more later. Once we all wrap our heads around what "it" is. 


For today, however, I am hoping that Magnolias might make you happy. They are certainly bringing a ray of sunshine to our world. Even if I am not at home to see them right this very moment.


Thinking of you x

Praying for "it" to be figured out soon.

Beautiful! I just love those bright spring colors...pink, blue, green! Looking forward to some spring colors here!

No magnolias in Arizona so they are a very special eye candy treat!

Thoughts and prayers with you....

Best wishes for you and your family! Thanks for these beautiful pictures and perhapy there'll be a little bit of fabric in the magnolia shades in your next-next line (just an idea).

Those magnolias are beautiful! :) Thank you for sharing. And we'll be praying that everything will be okay.

Joanna. I can only say to you what people told me - pray and keep your trust in God. He'll be there and see you thru this. Just go one day at a time. Your family will be in my prayers.

Magnificent blooms, thanks for always seeking to cheer my day. May the Lord lighten the burden of your heart as you cast your cares upon him for he cares for you and your family too. I care for you too, Joanna!
