'Inspired By #87' and 'Our Beautiful World #11'

 
 
What a wonderful challenge ....
 
 
this photo... how gorgeous!
 


 
So picking up the colour here....
Meaghan and our milking cow 'Jessie' back in 1985

 
This is a lot of colour for me.... it seems to be sneaking in more and more - along with use of patterned paper - maybe its the shift into Spring!
 
 
 
--------------------------------
 
 
Our Beautiful World's prompt this week is
 

 
 
'Bubbles'...weeeell, at least here it's one bubble (in a way)
 
I was stuck for a while as blowing bubbles here with grown teenagers etc wasn't going to happen LOL.  However, with a glass bubble bauble hug in front of one of my stain glass windows with the light shining in from the other side, I couldn't believe the lovely result and deep colour...
Heee hee.. my arm was not long enough to hold the bauble out and take the photo,  so I went to the kitchen drawer and fetched some BBQ tongs!  Worked a treat!  (just had to get a bit resourceful!)

That's so creative of you, Mandy ... taking a shot of a glass ball :). I love seeing thru the 'looking glass', just like Alice :). LOVE how it diffracts the colors from the background stained glass. Thank you for sharing with us again this week @ OBW!.
