Beauty in the everyday...

It's been a while since I visited Inspire Me Thursday but since I'm supposed to be going to sleep now I thought it was as good a time as any. Things have been a little hectic and I've really been missing my IMT fix. There are so many talented people who post to that site and I'm always so inspired by them (no pun intended). This weeks them is beauty in the everyday. There are so many things that I see as beautiful including the people I love but I chose to go with some pictures from the garden. For some reason I find nature so soothing and at the same time energizing. God's handiwork just moves me.

My sister loves to give me orchids and I have a full kitchen window sill to show for it. Orchids are so beautiful and delicate.




This is a man made bird house with a roof made with pine cone pieces. I just love the texture.



Funny, this is another man made item but he is just so cute he makes me smile.

My favorite is the orchid picture. It just seems so...serene, some how.

I never really thought of orchids as every day, but I guess if you've got orchids in your kitchen, they are every day.

Cool
