We're All Ears February Challenge

Our inspiration are lovely flower girls created by Lim Zhi
Malaysian artist and photographer Lim Zhi Wei (a.k.a Limzy) is the creator of these whimsical flower girls. She has a passion for turning every day objects into things of delicate beauty. For 2015, Limzy created a very limited run of a calendar of her Flowergirls. How marvelous would it be to gaze on those dreamy beauties every day of the year! The beauty of this art is that it is ephemeral. It will not last. Yet Limzy has captured the essence of the bloom in such a spectacularly unique way and preserved it in her prints. You can follow Lim Zhi Wei on Instagram and Facebook or on her blog, Love, Limzy.

There are several flower girls to choose from
I chose these because I love Calla lilies.


'Calla Lily'
 Beautiful drops from Scorched Earth
Disk beads from Twinstar
And sweet polymer beads from Graceful Willow

Please visit the Earrings Everyday blog to see more of  the art and the earrings

30 Words Thursday

A trip of a lifetime
New Orleans
Treated to Cirque du Soleil show
Handmade Leather masks 
And a dinner tour in the warehouse where all the Mardi Gras floats were stored 



As I was taking these photos outside I saw this
This little red fox is looking for food



Play along with us. It's fun
