Lovely Lilies

Nothing was working.  My usual table was covered with craft projects, I grabbed a shiny wood table instead.  I couldn’t find the right vase.  The vases were too short, too tall, too skinny, or too wide.  I went with the vase that was too wide.  It looked like it was going to tip over, so I put black rocks in the bottom to anchor it down. 

Then I put the vase in front of my go-to-window for pictures.  I began shooting.  
It worked.

I always find it amazing when I don’t think anything is going right, and then out of nowhere it all comes together perfectly.

Today I am linking up with Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds.

My Friday Finds are these lovely lilies and learning to let go of how I think things should be, and enjoying what is.

Both photos were textured with kk_touchof-1.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!


  1. Sooo beautiful Michelle!! I love the way the lilies droop to the side, and the black rocks in the bottom. I've had those kind of photo shoots, and when it comes out perfect, what a great feeling! Magic!

  2. good morning Michelle...what a perfect photo of your beautiful lilies! Don't you just love it when the magic happens...and it all comes together?
