Summer Threads

Time flies.
Days pass.
Hours slide by beneath an azure sky.
Summer shines in her fragrant beauty.

Peonies to cut and arrange
as their sweetness fills the air.

Blush pink roses wait for me on the workbench in my studio.

Sweet scented stock pose gracefully on the mantel.

Treasures discovered while antiquing at a new shoppe in a nearby village.

I pour my soul into new dream catchers.

Pink & aqua

"Lavender fields"

Another day kisses farewell
as the sun begins to set once again.

Content with accomplishments this summer week.

Dreams of what tomorrow will bring...

God has woven each one of us 
into a quilt of the world. 
Each thread a uniform part, 
and yet, also a unique individual. 
Alone, we lack structure, 
but together beauty is created. 
By the way He connects us, 
our lives are determined. 
He is our compass needle 
and we, His threads of life.

  4. Beautiful post Laurie!
    If I come visit - I'm taking a bath - even if I only come for an hour - I want to spend a half hour at least soaking in that tub in that bathroom
    Just letting you know!

  5. Your flowers are gorgeous, Laurie! My pink hydrangeas are looking so good, I want to cut all the flowers off and bring them inside. : ) Of course, the bushes would look kind of funny with no flowers on them, so I am restraining myself. I cut a few the other day and my granddaughter loved holding them and checking them out.

  6. So beautiful Laurie, but then everything you touch ends up that way!! :)

  10. I'm in full agreement with Suzan's comment , if I'm ever in your neighborhood I'm disappearing in that gorgeous bathroom of yours, preferably with a large bottle of'd probably have to call the fire department to get me out of there!

  15. What a beautiful post! Love all the peonies!!! I am planting some in the new house for sure. Are they easy to grow? They must be they are all over the blogs and I want them, hydrangeas in the new house and lilacs. You are so good in your garden, have any tips on these plants. I won't be planting until next early spring but I want to have ideas and save any tips now. Laurie, I would love for you to follow Cloches and Lavender on our journey!!

  18. Laurie, I don't know if I've ever written to tell you how beautiful your dreamcatchers are. I don't know what it is about them. They're so romantic and dreamy. I love many things in the Native American culture, and I am always attracted to one of their dreamcatchers. It may be for the same reason that I adore a spider's web. A natural perfection.

  19. Just lovely Laurie... like everyone else, I want to live in your bathroom... sigh... your new dreamcatchers are so pretty!... wish you could see my Prairie Girl you made for me softly blowing in the Summer breeze through my open bedroom window... and the little tinkling of seashells and trinkets on it... much love, xoxo Julie Marie
