Mystery and lighting

Sun shining through clouds Middle of the day

Little bit of changing in the lighting to give a mystic effect.

  1. Love the peak saturation in the photos! Beautiful! Also noticed that you scrapbook. I haven’t in a while due to life changes, but enjoyed it immensely when I did. Have enjoyed some quilting and card making as well. Still have a lot of the supplies and a couple of unfinished quilt projects and unfinished scrapbooks in the closet. Hope to finish them someday. 🙂


    • Glad you love the light in the photos! It looks as if we have a lot in common. I started scrap booking in South Africa , even gave classes at a art shop. Coming to New Zealand I had to start everything from scrap. I attended all kinds of workshops just to start to get out and learn about the ways here. Scrap booking, card making, beading and at the end I am still quilting. Everything is so expensive that I had to scale down in expenses. 🙂

      • I used to teach scrapbooking myself, and was a consultant for 6 years. Loved it. Life just changed dramatically and I needed to make some changes. I have flown through New Zealand once. Beautiful! My deceased husband and I lived in Australia for 3 years in the 1980’s. Loved our time there – like a fairyland.


        • Yes, a lot to be thankful for. Good to be creative it takes the mind of a lot of things. My husband committed suicide in 1993 and since then it was a struggle to keep things together and going. That’s why I enjoy crafts to ease the mind! Living in NZ is as if in a postcard as one of my blog friends keeps on telling me. I agree with her. Postcard it is indeed 🙂

          • I’m so sorry to hear about your husband. I am grateful that God has given you good friends, and an inspiring place to live. Even almost 7 years after losing my husband to cancer, I still struggle at times. This past weekend something came up in our home to very much remind me of those days, and I shed some tears. I pray that God continue to strengthen you and comfort you as he has me. Thank you so much for sharing.


    • Thanks, the first one brings back fond memories of the morning before my son’s wedding. The last one is very spooky! 🙂
