Creative beauty....

Who knew you could find so much creative beauty in a mere apple core?
~~~


And since we're on the subject....
I just want to thank Trisha from ROUNDABOUT for this:
(book page wreath)
And Jo from Miz. November for this:
(leather envelope and ring)

I received both of these packages in the mail over the past couple weeks, and these artistic and creative people were the reason.
Trisha and Jo both have Etsy shops...


A BIG thank you to both of you, you made my days brighter. 

(which I need today~as it is SNOWING as I type. Can you believe it?)

Beautiful! At first I thought the apple core was a flower, would you believe it?

Leontien said...

We eat apples all the time here & I've never looked at the beauty in them. Such a great shot! You make me realize I need to slow down & be more observant :)

Closeups are revealing in making me look at things, better. Like your apple.

My daughter was standing here now as I read this post and she said... "Oh... it's a face!"
Beautiful apple art!

Ugggh, the "S" word, and it doesn't end in pring! lol The gifts are amazing, some people are just that creative. I like to be creative when time permits, unfortunately there is no time to be creative unless you count doing an eight page paper the day before it's due as creative! lol

Have a great Thursday Dawn!

The apple core looks like a flower, very clever!

Miz.November said...

That wreath is stellar! It looks so pretty on the wall.
I am so glad you liked your stuff. It took a decade to get to you, though. Your comment really made my day. It always makes my day when someone likes something that I made. :)

Now if I could only figure out how to send you some sunshine.
