Spring Colours Week - my 2013 photos

Hello Lovelies! Spring Colours Week 2010: Purple Day. Beautymist (c) 2010. Back in 2010, I participated in the Flickr group called " Spring Colours Week". Since spring has been so slow in arriving this year, I think i can take my photos now instead of the previously scheduled program (March 8 - March 12). So starting this Monday April 22 2013, I will post photographs of the following colours in nature and/or my immediate surroundings: Monday - Pink (Light Pink - baby pink) Tuesday - Green (Chartreuse) Wednesday - Yellow Thursday...

Spring Colour Week : Purple Day

Hello Lovelies ! Here is my contribution to the Spring Purple Day: The calendar comes from "Modern Printed Matter", a small, exquisite Etsy shop owned by Anna Cote. The ink (for ink pads)  is much more purple in person, and the coasters are Japanese. Have a nice purple day! Enjoy!-Beautymist.

Sunday Deeds & Toughts

Hello Lovelies! Spring comes in all kinds of blue hues... photo by Beautymist. So far, i’ve been to the countryside for a day and a half. Had a long walk in the woods. Stopped by the cemetery and an old ruined chapel (see my photo above) where I prayed for my GrandPa (he passed away a year ago). I meditated. Then on my way home I gathered pinecones to lit a fire. I made a fire from scratch in the fireplace. Did some yummy meals, talked to friends, learned to crochet, relaxed with tea and decor ... [Lire la suite]
