Beautiful Moroccan Chandelier

Just wanted to share this beautiful Moroccan  chandelier. 

Thought this really adds life, color, and culture to any room. 

I love the mosaic of glass pieces and their vibrant colors and interesting shapes. 

Set into the brass holders this stunning chandelier is a standout and lights up not only the room, but also perhaps even our lives. 😉

Parking Lot Crazy Car

Parking Lot Crazy Car

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure–funny, interesting, weird, how does it make you feel?

This car, aside from the missing fender, window, and masking tape and cord holding it together, has got a crown of mementos on its hood and roof (aside from the stuff piled in the side and rear seat).

A collage, mosaic–artsy self expression–this car is someone’s jewel.

Almost can’t believe that it still runs, but it got to this shopping mall parking lot somehow–and it manages to get its share of attention.

Wondering–is this a hoarder’s mentality and does the person’s home also look like this too or is this someone’s big statement about their values and beliefs?

Definitely unique, an eye catcher, and a whole different way to think of a Honda. 😉

Butterflies In The Summer

These are two pictures of beautiful butterflies that I took today while hiking.

The first is a black and white butterfly with some gold accents–it’s wings were enormous and it is spread over multiple leaves–it sort of reminds me of Batman.

The second was gold and black with a double wing and a mosaic like pattern–almost like Tiffany glass.

It was amazing see these beautiful creatures up close and actually I was surprised that they stayed still long enough for me to get near enough to snap these photos.

On a hot, lazy day on the Shenandoah River, maybe they gave me this one.

Thank you G-d for the magnificent beauty of the creatures and the Earth that you provide to us.
