Peonies and Art

First it was my magnolia bush and now my peonies...they came in beautifully and then one swift rain took them all to the ground. Thankfully I managed to harvest some to enjoy inside for a couple days.

The piece in the middle is from the lovely and talented Emily from Inside A Black Apple. You can see her piece in her etsy shop The Black Apple. I bought this piece for Tim for our Anniversary last year. It is entitled "As Long As I Have You". The description listed it as a "tribute to true love, bi-planes, and faithful hedgehogs". LittleA likes to tell everyone who comes to visit that it is me and tim and she is the hedgehog. I must say that the hedgehogs are just about the cutest little guys and gals around the shop.

I just love how this photo turned out - that is my littleA on her true birth date.

This "baby" is a piece that we just recently purchased at a benefit. It was done by a local artist who recently moved from another part of the state. I saw it on the wall at the coffee shop during the benefit and I fell in love with it. I loved how raw the emotion came across. It reminded me of when LittleA was a babe. It also reminds me of that inner sense we all get sometimes that we feel helpless and small.
