Thank you so much for your sweet messages and well wishes!
I'm very grateful for the heart warming love and encouragement you sent me. My photos for this Simply Neutrals are therefore about love and gratitude.

Beautiful pieces of art adorned with vintage laces
and made by dear blog friends or purchased from a beautiful online shop,
which are hanging above my work table to be admired.

Features of last party

Shane of Roses, Lace and Brocante shared these beautiful gifts below,
which she received from a dear friend.
And I love the photo collage she made with them.

Mascha of Maschas Buch shared this beautiful photo of a stone work statue.
So beautifully serene and gorgeous.

Speaking of stone work,
Jesse of Lace Age Girl shared this gorgeous architectural stone work.

And she shared so much beauty in her blog post, that I was oohing and aahing many many times.
So I decided to share more of it with you here.

A beautiful photo of an old window which looks like it belongs to an old church.

And many photos of yummy textures,
of which I made a photo collage, to avoid a lengthy post here today :)

  1. HI Wen. Glad to hear that you're feeling a little better, but do be careful. Thanks for the return of our special Tuesdays. Happy New Year! Hugs, Sue

  2. Take care of you - perhaps it's good right now just to take some time to plan what you want to do once you're feeling better.

  3. Simply Neutrals is so very calming. I truly enjoy what everyone shares. Makes me think I should work in some Neutrals into my creative endeavors. Continued Healing Energy Dear...

  4. Hi Wen, Sorry to hear you've been in pain, that's most unpleasant. Hope you're feeling better. I have been away from Blogland in real life with kids on school holidays, going to the beach, and making lots of yummy food for hungry mouths! Not to mention the extra mess...!

    The photo collage by Shane is gorgeous, and I love Mascha's wreath. That's a great idea to group my textures, I hadn't thought of that. Happy New Year, and I hope it's renewing and creative for you.

  5. P.S. Your heart with buttons and the cabinet card are sweet.


  6. Good Morning and thanks for featuring.
    Happy healthy New year (I'm early, last time wasn't a good time, seems not only for me - )
