Texture Tuesday/7-26-11

good morning. the texture tuesday challenge this week is 'Dream'.

Free To Fly

i've used a recent shot, a layer of 'not too shabby' and a quote that i like.
the layer is a freebie from the very generous and talented kim klassen.

today's gifts have included:
  • a few extra minutes of sleep
  • the beloved ritual of watering/tending the houseplants
  • frozen grapes on a hot summer morning ~ yummy ~!!~


  1. This IS exquisite. It really does make me want to pause and dream. Thank you!

  2. Very pretty! It's a great quote.

  3. Love the quote and image, beautifully created.

  4. HI Libby Q!
    I like the texture and the bug!
    Isn't watering plants the very best task? I really love to let the hose run and run, coming back to it to fill my watering cans. My husband likes to turn off the hose between fills. We compromise! I'm glad you got a bit of extra shut-eye!

  5. We both found ladybugs this week! I love your image.

  6. I love how that little ladybug is walking away and the way she pops off the screen. wonderful capture and sentiment.

  7. The detail on that leaf is amazing. Love ladybugs and the quote you've chosen.

  8. A wonderful image and great quote. I really love to see wild life on plants (although maybe gardeners don't feel the same way....)

  9. ooh i love macro shots to start with and i love the quote and the texturing is so soft it is lovely

  10. Very nice Libby. I dont care for Jesse Jackson, but the quote is something I needed to hear. Funny how that happens sometimes huh?

  11. This is so nice... love it! And the quote! Frozen grapes right now would be wonderful :) -Tammy

  12. Hi Libby - I just read your comment (the one you worried might be 'too long') over on Jude's blog. A number of people have responded to it by now and I was not sure which reply button to hit to make sure you saw my remark so I jumped over here to leave it. You managed to articulate a lot of things that are true for me experientially and it was *so helpful* to view these thoughts through the lens of somebody else's expressive prowess.


i love knowing what your thoughts are and knowing that you've paid a visit if you have the time to drop a line or two.

i attempt to answer all comments and/or questions. if this is important to you make sure you are not set on no reply which leaves me no way to get back to you.
