lolafalola "But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold."-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. Inspired by @bellagracemagazine and @shuttersisters I dedicate this image to my friends that breathe soul goodness into my life. You are the women that encourage me artistically and spiritually. Who offer advice and gentle exhortation to be the woman, the wife, the mother, the artist, the friend I am called to be. You are the friends of my youth who have seen me through some incredibly tough times and helped me laugh through them even as you held my hand as I cried. And you are the friends from my adulthood who have mostly only seen me laughing and have joined in with me even when you didn't know the joke. There are too many of you to list individually but know that I think and pray for you all, giving thanks for you and how you've touched my life and heart. #giftinggrace #bellagracemagazine #joyfinding2015 1w

lolafalola Sitting in the sunlight, enjoying my first (and only) cup of coffee of the day, and sorting through vintage antimacassars, table runners and the like. Trying to decide which to offer up for @kimklassen's Studio Online's prop swap. #gathercalifornia gals will know all about my vintage goodies. #thestudioonline #mymorningsinlight #joyfinding2015 P.S. Studio Online gals, I'll post on our FB page once my daughters and I have decided which of these lovelies we are willing to send to a new home. 3w
  •   beverlylcazzell @lolafalola we are a Navy family also. Son is retired Chief and his oldest is now enlisted. Guessing second grandson will join after HS. best wishes to your daughter!!! 3w
  •   lolafalola @beverlylcazzell Awesome! We are technically an Army/Marine Corps family as my husband enlisted straight out of HS then in college went through OCS with the Corps. A horrible fall and his resulting shattered ankle ended his career before it even began. My daughter wants to become a USMC officer. 3w
  •   lolafalola @chris_sneddon When my mom died I inherited my grandmothers cedar chest. It was FILLED with these vintage linens. There were so many they filled a 30 gallon trash bag to overflowing. (Obviously we didn't throw them out but they made the chest too heavy to lift so we put them in the bag to get them home!) 3w
  •   beverlylcazzell @lolafalola oh that is too bad about the ankle!! Our son was the med corpsman for the Marines. Lots of similarities in our families plus our photography. 3w
  •   lolafalola @beverlylcazzell Yes...it was so hard to watch his dreams end. And isn't it funny how two things as unlike as photography and the Internet can bring people together? 3w
  •   michelle_gd beautiful! 3w
  •   carolyn_eicher oh lovely you! I have my favorite piece from you from gather and I cherish it 2w
  •   prairiegirlstudio gosh, these are so beautiful ... just imagine the stories they could tell ... so lovely ♡ 2d

lolafalola He was very disappointed that I did not let him have a "stick". For his take on this image check out @gusthewonderbeagle #adventuresofgusthewonderdog #beagle #beaglesofig 3w
  •   kriebelbeth Yay! Gus in my feed today!! 3w

  •   justbeagles We might share this on our page :) 3w
  •   lolafalola @keepingwiththetimes They are beautiful and yes they are Gather spoons! (the little one is a coffee scoop...I have some ideas for pics of that one. Now just to find the time to make it happen!) 3w
  •   lolafalola @kriebelbeth @dmtaira Yes he is...good thing as he did manage to get one of the spoons in his mouth...but only for a split second! 3w
  •   lolafalola @hopeinthewoods He actually managed to grab one about 2seconds after I unwrapped it! He's quick but I'm quicker. It was that or the blood curdling scream I let loose caused him to drop it! 3w
  •   carolyn_eicher this is such a great shot!! 2w

lolafalola My surprise anniversary gift from @awideopenlens arrived! Seriously, I married the best man in the world! Only he would know that wooden spoons would make my heart sing! And a huge shout out to @hopeinthewoods for the absolutely beautiful spoons. Your craftsmanship is stunning (and a heartfelt thank you to @xantheb for brining that sweet spoon to #gathercalifornia). #joyfinding2015 #bestill52 #stilllife #thestudioonline 3w

lolafalola Taking a short lunch break. Inspired so much by Lindsey @thepostmansknock watercolor tutorials and Jess @greenleafblue's absolutely fab watercolor tin that she made me for my anniversary gift to @awideopenlens (check out his IG feed to see it.) I'm thinking I have WAY too many creative things going on:photography, calligraphy, and now little watercolor illustrations to go with the calligraphy. Now all I need is an extra couple of hours a day to fit everything in. Finishing this will have to wait for another day...lunch is over and math and history are calling my youngest girls' names. #joyfinding2015 #flowmagazine #flowtinypleasures 4w

lolafalola My word for the year is JOY and with my word in mind I've been seeking AND finding JOY throughout my days. One way I find Joy is by thinking of and being grateful for my friends. Inspired by @shuttersisters and @bellagracemagazine I'm celebrating my friends throughout the month of April. Today I wish to dedicate these tulips to some incredible women in my life. Though only a few of the group are on IG and I've only met two in person all of them have encouraged me, supported me and blessed me beyond measure. We started out as an E-mail group of homeschooling moms using the Classical method. For over 10 years this group exchanged curriculum suggestions, practical advice and moral support. Most of the group no longer homeschool but the friendships forged those many years ago have been a balm to my soul. I know I would not have made it this far without these women in my life. @annvoskamp @lmlsca @chenaultcb @liveoakhome So to you ladies I send you this #giftinggrace If you are so inclined please gift an image of grace to someone dear to you. Use the hashtags #giftinggrace and #bellagracemagazine You might have your image featured by @shuttersisters and be gifted s Bella Grace Magazine. Philippians 1:3 #joyfinding2015 4w
