Galleries

"The sky is the ultimate art gallery just above us."   Ralph Waldo Emerson

A simple pallet for the sky watch gallery this week, from a quiet morning watching the sun creep up on a beautiful blue sky day. Happy Weekend everyone, click the Sky Watch link to see what 100s of bloggers from all over have found in their sky this week.


Art Galleries come in all kinds of shapes and sizes,  Anke Humpert hosted a tutorial recently for travel altars.  It was the best fun creating this little keepsake to remember no matter how far we travel, what is really important.

Terrific capture and the perfect words, Mandy! I love the bare limbs silhouetted against the almost fragile blue of the sky! Lovely! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
