  3. Hello! I'm popping over from Your Sunday Best! I love your sky photos. We're moving to the country and every time we go out to our property I am enthralled by the sky and have so enjoyed trying to capture it. Your shots are an inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Visiting you from Nancy . . . I loved this post, the bamboo, postcards and your precious doggie. Our dogs are "face twins" although yours looks like a Yorkie with ears going up and our is a Shorkie and her ears go down. Truly their faces are much the same. Irish Garden House and the Label, Snickers will provide a look . . . I look forward to following you and your art and peaceful way.
