I LOVE BEAUTIFUL THINGS … {especially after the morning I’ve had} … Which is Why I {Heart} Elizabeth Messina

Happy Thursday, my friends.  I just escorted a HUGE bug to the other side of the street, and it was disgusting.  Though my 6-year-old niece and 3-year old nephew seem to think it’s “cooooooool” which I get, but my niece in particular kept calling it “pretty.”  Pretty?  It was an inch and a half (for serious) and it had two sets of mouth talons, because I guess it needs a backup set of mouth talons if the first set of mouth talons somehow fail him in his taloning pursuits.  (Makes me seriously wonder what I must look like to her, since she likes to call me pretty, too.)  Anyway, I needed some color lovin’ to try and forget about this morning’s experience.  This did the trick:

Thoughts?  Is this inspiring or is this inspiring?  Elizabeth Messina makes my heart pump more blood throughout my body, and at a faster pace, which simulates the feeling of being in love with her.  I’m feeling very confused, but I kinda like it.

    You are sooo brave…I don't think I could have helped in the bug situation. I don't know what it is about bugs but my 3 year niece just loves them too! Too funny. In regards to Elizabeth Messina….aw yes my heart pitter patters over her work…which like Naomi says is a heaven like. I don't know how she does it but she seems to capture the “feel” if you know what I mean!
    Hope the rest of your day is bug free :)

    I almost passed out when I saw a ladybug the other day, can’t believe I am the same child who used to play with snails and keep pet ants! Love the images… gorgeous!
