Feathering Friday…Wearing the moment

I have anticipated this day for almost an entire year.

I set out early to walk this morning and was kissed by waves of scent–apple blossoms, honeysuckle and my favorite, lilacs!

The fragrances blended like no perfumer could have possibly managed, yet the air wafted their delights without the cloying odor that so many cosmetic counters dispense.

Pure delight!

The lilacs struck a chord in my memory. One thought led to another and soon I was reminiscing on Michael Kors Spring 2015 line.

I have not seen much of his fabulous floral inspired pieces in the stores here, so I went back to his website to refresh my memory.  Here he shows lilacs, among many other flowers as pattern with gingham, laces, chiffon and linen.  It is the floral prints that set this Spring collection apart in my estimation.  They speak to my senses and draw me to that long awaited day, the day to which I awoke today–the day of lilacs in bloom!

This peacock thinks he got it right…

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
