Wednesday group~


Worked great yesterday so I am
going to triple post today.

These are water lilies for Wordless Wed-CRAFTS
and a painting of water lilies on the wall.
All inspired by my outdoor pond.

wordless...shh...


Now I can talk about What's on My Wall.

My sister-in-law visited from Oregon,
took a photo of my pond in the front
yard, went home and painted me
this water color picture.


And the crafted paper water lilies were from a
home school study I taught with a friend
several years ago.
We used a wonderful book I had found...

Monet and the Impressionists
For Kids

Their Lives and Ideas with 21 Activities

"My garden is my most
beautiful masterpiece."

~Claude Monet~

To all you beautiful water lily ladies
growing in blogland...
Have a bloomin' good Wednesday!

Visit Barb for all the 'WALL' posts
(stand-by...waiting for Barb to post...
she could use our prayers)

Dixie for 'CRAFTS'
and Susan for 'OUTDOOR' wonders.
