I thought instead of talking yet again about it, I'd share with you three things I think are beautiful. Take my breath away, send fizzy bubbles of happiness into my bloodstream, build a warm glow deep within kind of beauty.
Aren't these fabulous? I have always loved tulips for their clean lines and simplicity (the Dutch are so efficient, even in their flowers) but lately have been so drawn to the full-on lushness of peonies - especially in pink.
I would never wear this, you understand, as I wouldn't be able to walk in them... not even very slowly. I would put them on a shelf, maybe beside my Jane Austen collection, and smile every time I looked at them.
All thanks to our Good Lord for the beauty He has given us in creation, for giving us the grace to appreciate it - and for the creative impulse to try for making a little beauty ourselves.
Would you like to share your beautiful things with us? Write descriptions, post photos, or send us your pictures. We'd love to hear from you.
