SHS Photo Challenge 18

With the passing of this week I marked my 55th trip around the sun . . . the years sure do seem to be slipping by so much faster lately.  And all ready it's time to post another week's finds for Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  

1.  Facial Feature
These perfect little lips belong to a certain little miss that has completely stolen my heart.  Her daddy had those same lips once upon a time. (Archived but fresh edit)

 2.  Shadow
 I love the way the shadows layer over each other as cast from different sources of light.

3.  Spicy 
This is an artful edit of an oregano plant growing in a little corner of my garden patio.

4. Gold
 I love pretty boxes and find the gold embellishment on these two particularly delightful.

5. Fabric
This is just one of 35 squares in a memory quilt I made my daughter.  All the fabrics are recycled and many are from outfits I made for her when she was little.  As well I included fabrics that contained things she loves like dolphins and sunflowers and pumpkins and butterflies.  The small floral print on dark blue background was from one of my mother's favourite dresses and the red gingham was from a dress that I made in high school.  I also made her a little book with pictures of her wearing the clothes that now were part of the quilt.

Well folks, that's what I found this week . . . now I am going to check out what you found at our hostess Ashley's site,  Ramblings & Photos.

Next weeks clues are:
1.  Love
2.  Duplicated
3.  Trend or Trending
4.  Paper
5.  Plastic

  8. Really enjoyed this series.
    I love the idea that you recycled the fabrics in your quilt. So much more authentic and just using a packet of storebought bits. The flowers look great in there. Not easy to design I imagine.

  9. Dear Andrea Dawn,

    Photography is supposed to be a visual art, but somehow you always get to the heart. Each and every photo is a beam of love which bring glory to the Father.

    What a wonderful way to begin my Lord's Day,
