Bella Grace winner announced!

I wrote each of your names on a seashell.
I went to the beach, tossed them into the air.

And the winner Misty was the one which fell inside the circle.
Congratulations !! 

and then I took all of you for a swim, and returned to the Sea 
Thank you for stopping by my blog, I hope to see you here again ! 

Somerset Place continues to host opportunities for Bella Grace Magazine give-aways...come on over for another chance!! 

simple things~give-away~Bella Grace Magazine

I walk the beach almost every single day. 
It has become my daily ritual, simple pleasure. And every day, I seem to find a treasure...
or does it find me?

The simple sacred treasures of the Sea find me.

One day I was lying on the beach, Shavasana pose, at the waters edge, allowing the waves to wash over me. A seashell landed in my open palm.  
I grabbed hold tight. 
I listened to the Sea talk to me. 
She comforted me.
She gifted me. She held me.

I hold her sacred everyday.

I make art with her gifts to honor her beauty.

I am honored to be featured in the beautiful premier issue of Bella Grace
"discovering magic in the ordinary" 
Unlike any other magazine this thick book-like collection of poetry, gorgeous imagery and  journal-type prompts is a timeless addition to your  reading pleasures. 
Stampington & Company invited me 
and She is Three 
as well as other artists, bloggers, writers and photographers to participate in this blog hop~giveaway.

Blushing Wild

When Mandy and Rain invited me to contribute and participate in this delicious e-course 
Blushing Wild, I blushed wildly with excitement. 
Of course, I was honored and flattered, but now that I am called upon to explore my ripening self of 56 years vintage, there will be blushing red dairies, sexy poetry, and whispered secrets. 
And of course self portraits that further tell my story where words do not belong.
