"Bloom Where You're Planted" and The Blog Guide Book
Guest Artist: Donna
Her blog: http://myshabbychateau.blogspot.com
Today I am featuring the work of Donna and I would really encourage you to visit her blog as she has some amazingly inspiring projects on there! I saw this picture of her fleur de lis sconces and it made me think of something really important that I wanted to talk to you about.
I am currently in New Orleans and the fleur de lis is its symbol. I am new to the area and moved here after Hurricane Katrina. The people are very welcoming and make me feel right at home. Do I hear jazz music all the time? No. I did when I lived in the French Quarter...I live 8 miles from there now in a small, seaside village where many people have been shrimpers and crabbers all their lives...It is an area rich in history and the Battle of New Orleans took place here.
I think about the statement “Bloom Where You’re Planted” and feel like we can all bloom wherever we are and enjoy the simple pleasures of a particular area. What’s my favorite thing here? The people. They’re so friendly. And I am near water so there’s boats and a beautiful marina...love it!
What do you love about where you are from? Share it with us--we’d love to hear it!
And thank you, Donna for being a guest artist today--your creations and repurposing projects are amazing!
Also, I have just joined the Blog Guide Book to announce this prayer blog and link parties on it....I believe that more people will be aware that there is a place where someone cares about them!
Oops! And one more thing--tonight I will post the link for the blog party which asks, "What is your favorite place?"
