Friday Favorites – Magnolia and Irises

Art is the subject of this week’s Friday Favorites. 🙂

Although I love all kinds of art, I must admit that I never looked very closely at the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany until my youngest daughter became an enthusiastic fan.

Here’s a beautiful example of why I should have paid attention much sooner! I can really get lost looking into this scene. And the fact that I love irises is just icing on the cake.

(This one’s for you, Carol. 😀 You’ve had to put up with too many of my gleeful Autumn posts, so here’s a reminder that Spring will return!)

Have fun this weekend, everyone! See you all Monday with the new questions!

  1. That is beautiful – I love the colors. It just makes you feel happy and content looking at it.

  2. Hi Crystal! That’s so, so beautiful! I’m always so fascinated by anything done in glass. I have a really pretty floral glass piece hanging in a sunny den window. It’s been there for about four years, but I still love to look at it each time I pass by! What a pretty post! Have a great weekend!!! Hugs, Paulette 😉
