Beautiful, loving the Vincent Van Gogh quote!

I enjoyed the star theme here. I have never looked at the sky and not been humbled by its impossible size and beauty.

For some reason (I'm blaming it on hormones) the little tale of grandma's star made me cry.

Lovely theme Chrisy :)

Hey Harriet said...

I've just read over this post three times now. Each time is more beautiful than the last. I would very much like to dream Vincent Van Gogh :)

Jess said...

Hi Chrisy,
What a starlight inspiration in this post...I love the quiet gently intimate atmosphere you created with the expanse of stars and the handprinted "love you forever" note and connection. (I've shared the book, "I'll Love You Forever",-I'll love you for always. As long as I'm living,my baby you'll be-with my own children.)

Thanks for your visit to (OWL) blog and your comment about life balance.

I will be dreaming with Van Gogh and his "Starry Night" while listening to Don McClean's tribute song tonight. <3

and images ... . .

Beautiful sparkling images, they make me dreamy.

Gabbi said...

Such a thing of beauty Chrisy... when I was a little girl I would look at the stars and think of the grandmother I never got to meet. She died when my mother was only 9 years old and even today I try to imagine what she was like. I try to piece the few photographs we have of her with what my mother and uncles tell us. Thank you for sharing this.

Beautiful and touching post...I guess we all miss our grandmother and hope/dream she is watching over us...

I could visualize mother and daughter laying on that blanket with hands held connecting them as one!! I can remember doing the same with my daughter when she was only 5. What an awesome memory (that daughter is 33 now!!! Hold on to those special memories...Thank God for them!!!

Sweet post...the stars have always been very special to us humans, haven't they?

P. S. My body is finally adjusting to that horrible air mattress, I am still counting down the days until I get my room back :)

Hot Fudge said...

Like Tracy, I have read this post several times, which is pretty rare for me. I simply love it.

Glenda-TwoCoolTexans said...

Chrisy, that piece really touched my heart today. Looking up at the sky and having the stars in her hands.

whyte said...

Chrisy, such a wonderful and touching piece and note, brings back very fond memories. I used to lie on a blanket under the stars, mostly with just good girlfriends when kids, sleep out in a tent, but stargazing before sleep, always hoping to catch a shooting star!

Julie Magers Soulen said...

Lovely. Thank you for sharing your beautiful vision.
