For the love of Magnolias

I love Magnolias. These are the minutes to enjoy the flowers of this magnificent tree. In a matter of days, they will have fallen to the ground.

Beautiful stuff to stumble across: Paul Beelen jewelry (via Cally Creates), El blog de Alicia. And I don't remember if I linked to Amy Ross before, but her stuff is a·w·e·s·o·m·e!; also here and here. Very beautiful Flor de Papel, via Eddy and Edwina.

Today, being the last day of April, is also last chance of entering the

April 28th / IF: Wrinkles

("There lives a grand old lady in the wrinkles on my hand
She smiles at me from time to time,
her giggles dry as sand
She holds my gaze, and in her eyes I see the endless time

Alas – the grand old lady's eyes
– they look a bit like mine"

Also part of Dear Diary.

Back from the combi Jutland-trip/craftsfair, I'm a bit tired, my mind filled with impressions and faces. It's been a good weekend.
I hope you've had a good weekend, too.

April 8th// Illustration Friday: Save

Actually, I don't quite understand myself on this one.
Most of these Dear Diary-pages are done without thinking too much, just letting the pen and brush work, doing the first thing that comes to mind. So ... now fish want to be saved?! From ...? The water? ('cause no one asked them, if this was where they wanted to live?) From the pollusion? The seagull? Your guess is as good as mine. Really ;)
Don't forget to participate in the **April Guessing Contest** :))

April 4th/ IF: Homage

... to the little things. The cup of coffee that tastes so good, you have to close your eyes. The perfect shape of a raindrop on the window glass. The stranger on the street, who smiles at you ...
