Lovely colored glass shadows, Sylvia!

The rose is indeed beautiful.

Love the quotations you shared today.

Hope you have a fun weekend!

Ralph said...

Your table scape is outstanding, the blue stemware and glass providing a rich and colorful shadow! The brass 'branch' and leaves winds around like a snake. The rose is perfect as we await the arrival and departure of winter and the new growth of Spring. All nice captures, as always!

You know how I love your colored glass shadows, and these are my favorite cobalt blue color. I'd love to sit at that table and have a glass of wine, sitting in the sun. \

Your quotes hit home today, too.

Martha Z said...

You always find interesting shadows to share. I love the Seneca quote now if only I could learn to live it.

Ms. Becky said...

Hi Sylvia! I’m so happy to be here after my accident ;)

Great header and fantastic quotes!!

Blogtrotter Two is around Scandola. Fabulous! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Paula Scott said...

Another fun header! It's always more than a double treat to stoop by here. I missed seeing you on ABC Weds posts.

If no one picks up hosting SSS, I will still post my shadows as I have done for so many years. I do have an 'email subscribe' on my blog, so if you want automatic notification of my SSS posts, sign up for that. I don't post everyday, usually twice a week. If you visit me, I will surely visit you (but we have to leave comments so that we know we were by).

Have a great weekend!

Hello Sylvia! Is that an iron rose, or is it painted? whatever the case - it is absolutely breathtaking!! Hope you enjoy your weekend as well my dear!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Lovely blue glass shadows, but the winner for me is that single twig of leaves which looks as if it is some fragment from legend! Beautiful!

TexWisGirl said...

are you or your buddies going to pick up the shadow shot sunday meme too? linked in for the first time today and saw she's giving it up!

Arija said...

What a lovely trio. What is it about blue glass that instigates possessiveness in us? I have quite a collection too.

The Seneca quote both you and I need to take to heart and just enjoy each day as far as we can.

Lovely coloured shadows. I am intrigued by that dried up twig of rose.

Genie said...

Those first two still lives are superb. I really like the second one. It is especially nice. The blue shadows in the first are captivating to the eye. And the last one of the rose bloom is stunning. What a nice selection this week. genie

I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
