childhood innocence

William and his dog - portraiture by Elizabeth Belliveau






















a girl by - Elizabeth Belliveau






















These incredibly lovely portraits were done by my dear friend Elizabeth.  You remember her, the one who photographed me, the one with the amazing eye for capturing beauty.  Well, she also has the ability to capture childhood innocence in a portrait.  Can you imagine commissioning one of these.  I adore them.

She is looking for work and would love to hear from you.  Her site will soon be launching.  Just consider me a cheering squad.  I am just so excited, I can hardly wait.  I keep telling her she will have tons of work soon and that she really needs a blog.  

What dost thou think?  Love for you to applaud and then leave a comment.  I will make sure she gets every single one.

"To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour." I think William Blake's words describe Elizabeth's grace and talent. Speaking of grace, is there none better when women help each other bloom? Best of everything to you both.

Oh My word!! Are those Authentic Provence pots gorgeous!! Can only imagine the prices! Pennoyernewman.com also has lovely pots. We have used some of the small ones for our silk arrangements and have been very pleased with them. They are very nice people to work with.
