Beauty in Death

I find that I'm drawn to things that are old... and dead. Not in a morbid sort of way, but I see the beauty that is there and imagine what was.

Textured with Kim Klassen's Sybil, and Postale.

Linking up with Kim for Texture Tuesday.


  1. Totally agree with you about things past their prime. All such beautiful images.

  2. Funny how this point of view seems to capture us ... as we get older. :-D But it's true. I love your pitchers and that old truck ... perfection!

  3. love your scrapbook page, it's a beautiful composition

  4. Oh we are sisters ! Old , past it's prime I'm there so wish we could work together and I loce your digi page fantastic...

  5. You wrote this just for me today, didn't you? I could not help but think of John 12:24-25 in The Message: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat. But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over. In the same way, anyone who holds on to life just as it is destroys that life. But if you let it go, reckless in your love, you’ll have it forever, real and eternal. What may seem dead to those who see only the temporal, live on forever to those with their eyes on the eternal. Bless you today, Roxi. You made my heart sing.

  6. all such great images...I too love those things that are old (and dead!) but they are the most interesting sometimes...

  7. I love the scrapbook page too, a very artful composition.

  8. Totally in love with your work! Especially the first one :)
    Gorgeous gorgeous use of textures! And I like that you kindly shared the recipe!

  9. I agree...there is something so beautifully eloquent about all these things...they have character; they draw my in and tell a story.

    Great edits too! Adding a richness to the images without being overbearing.



I read and appreciate all your comments. Have a blessed day!
