~ Lense Artists Photo Challenge #8: COLORFUL ~

Tina Schell challenges us to lighten up and introduce some fun and frivolity to our posts this week. Levity – lightheartedness is often elusive – but always welcome!

This stained-glass window was a gift from my mother-in-law. What I know of its history is limited; an old-country artisan living in our region created it using old-world glass.

To look up at nature’s beautiful offering of plum blossoms set against a bright blue spring sky brings me a sense of peace and hope.

“…it is important to find moments of joy. We are surrounded by all of the colors of the rainbow, but it’s up to us to recognize and appreciate them.” Tina Schell

    The eccentricity of the Lavender Lady is a joy to behold. To decorate one’s home without a care for the neighbor’s is a wonderful sense of freedom. Loved the stained glass gift also. Loved your post, Lindy. ❤
