Season's End

I LOVE summer, and it is hard to transition to the chillier, wetter weather here in the Fall. Although I think Fall color is beautiful, it does not compare, for me, to the abundance of color in the Spring and Summer. I picked the last of the blooming daisies awhile back and set them in the garage to dry. I have seen lots of shots of dried dying flowers that I admire so I thought I would try my hand at it for a TT project. My layers are listed on the screenshot, as you can see I used 3 instead of 2 of Kim's textures. I set the daisies on the seat of the old white kitchen chair that I found at a barn sale this summer. Love that old thing. It is going to be used often.

My week spent with my mom was very draining, emotionally, physically and mentally. It is so hard to watch someone you love and who was such a strong woman all her life, lose touch with her world. She is in good health but mentally she is not understanding all the changes in her life. She doesn't understand why she has to have someone there to care for her since all this time she has been alone. Makes my heart sad, but yet I am so blessed that she is still here with us. I must tell myself to treasure each day because one day she will be gone and it will be very difficult to lose her. She has been a rock to all of us all our lives and now we have to be her rock.

Texture Tuesday
Please stop by TT and see all the beautiful art, created by all the beautiful people there.
