I have spent a looooong day in my closet today! I'm sure this little make over will be worth it though. I have been eying these pretty white flowers on the trees at the entrance of our neighborhood for the past couple of weeks. So, on the way home from buying yet more hangers and a shoe rack for my closet make over, I thought I would take a few pictures before the blooms were gone. Most of the blooms were on their way out, but luckily there were a couple of trees with late bloomers! White Japanese Magnolias. I wish you could smell these images! The blooms were so fragrant! I'm going to jinx us, I'm sure, but I think Spring is here in the South!

On another note, I knew this was coming, but not so soon! The next "Hot Spot" to tackle with the Project:Simplify is paper clutter. Ugh. The office is an absolute wreck (as is most of our house). I feel like spending a little longer on the closet right now. :(

I *just* posted a magnolia photo, too! Only mine has not budded yet. I love this! I love how different they are. Just the buds alone. This flower is beautiful, too. Great job!

I love these trees- you got a fantastic shot...beautiful bokeh- what lens were you using?

BEAUTIFUL! Love the bokeh and PP! Is this the same PP as the other one I asked about....please say no because I can't be tempted... ;)

Ok this is cracking me up. You and Jenn both did closet make overs and Japanese Magnolias. Love it!
I hope you are loving your iPad! Join us for lunch Thurs. 11:30

Thanks, Laurie! I have been having action fever lately and wanting to purchase some....but I am telling myself I am just hard! I love your work!

This is beautiful. I bet it DOES smell good! I love the bokeh. Spring...please hurry to Utah!

Nice shot... love the DOF. Good luck with the closet make-over. Our basement is my next task and I'm totally procrastinating!

The flowers are beautiful... but my favorite part of the post is that you were on a trip for MORE hangers :) Hehe. Can't wait to see the awesome organization!

Beautiful! My neighbor behind us has a tree with some gorgeous light pink flowers on it just over our fence. I've been trying to decide if I want to risk looking like a huge dork and go shoot them. LOL And yeah, it's looking like spring is here :-)

This is JUST beautiful! Loved the muted tones.

Just so clean, simple and beautiful! I wish I could smell them!! Good luck with the paper clutter...that doesn't sound like too much fun! ;)

This is gorgeous! I love how soft and simple it is. My eye is instantly drawn to those blossoms. What a *hopeful* picture!
