Awesome. Love the contrast in this shot. Great texture on the tree bark.

This photo should be published in a coffee table-top book!!! It is done so well and looks so professional! Thematically it also has such a powerful view!

I love the interior view you've achieved in the outdoors. Great contrast in texture.

I love the picture, Sandra! Great work!

Amy said...

So nice! I love the composition, the mood, and the conversion. Beautiful photo.

Also love your laundry soap post. I've used Tide with Bleach for 16 years. Are you getting good results with your homemade version or do you think I would be disappointed?

My Inspired Heart said...

Amy....my results have been great, although there is no scent unless you add essential oil to the mixture. Even still, the scent isn't very strong. I'd say the main difference is the perfume....otherwise it has been just as good as the store-bought detergents I was buying.

I love the picture and the quote.

Also, thank you for posting the link to the homemade laundry products. I used to make the liquid detergent regularly, years ago, and I had gotten away from it. Thank you! I put a link on my blog so I can remember to do this.

Love the shot & the quote...so true. I am discovering that every day takes courage as I 'grow up' and raise a family of my own while dealing with my aging parents. Love the detergent making post too. I just bought a huge box from Costco, but once that's gone I'm going to give it a try! Very exciting. Having 4 kiddos anything to save money is worth a try!
