Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson


A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

Aren't these images beautiful?! They are from my sweet friend Lu's site...Dusty Lu. If you haven't

been there yet you need to visit her right away. I have been following her for a while now and she

is a constant source of inspiration! Her home is gorgeous...white, serene...very shabby

chic...simply stunning and her photography is breathtaking! Lately she has been featuring some

wonderful recipes and let me just say...yummy...and of course they are as lovely to look at as they

are tasty!

Lu has been asked to be involved in a new venture involving the fabulous Rachel Ashwell! The

images above are Lu's work. Aren't they lovely? I am so thrilled to be able to share these

with  you...kind of a sneak peek! These are some items that Rachel Ashwell will be featuring in her

latest project! I can't wait to see what the wonderful lady is up to now. She has been an

inspiration to me too...I was lucky enough to visit her shop in California several years ago. While I

don't generally go the "white" route...who doesn't love her wonderful combination of old and

new...shabby and chic...beautiful!

Rachel and Lu...two inspirational women...lovers of beauty...artists! You can find Dusty Lu
