Final Friday Finding Beauty

Filed Under Fridays Finding Beauty | 21 comments

I am still enjoying a photography class that I have been participating in–  the prompt was for us to find something that was “still lingering”


The prompt from last week was to share something that was “Precious and unexpected” to us…

He was 5 yrs old; as I unwrapped it he told me I should have something “pretty and not something to clean with.”

This was 25+ years ago… he had just gone shopping with his Dad who had bought me a vacuum.

It’s plastic and still one of my most cherished gifts ever.


For this mono-tone shot — the assignment was to keep it simple with few colors.   I love the many grasses that surround us.


Today will be our FINAL — Friday Finding Beauty.

It’s been so much fun meeting you all on Fridays and seeing all the glorious things you find Beautiful in your life.

I know that this time of year it is just crazy in many of your lives— I appreciate all of you lovelies who tried to remember to join us on Fridays– but the number’s have been dwindling and the last thing I want any of my friends to HAVE to do — is feel obligated to participate.

I certainly will be here in blog land– joining in with many of you in the various memes.

Be sure to register to my RSS feed (located on the side bar — the Far right ORANGE button.)  All you have to do is enter your email address and it will remind you when I post something. AND — ahhh heck if you can’t get that to work, just check back now and then and see what’s new!

I know many of you don’t turn up your music — but just for today — turn on your music and listen to this cute lil song I found JUST for today.

Please post your link for today — and comment if you want to.

I adore you!  You are certainly something I found every Friday that was BEAUTIFUL!

  1. Hi Claudia!

    Well, dear sweet lady, I am sad that your ending FFB but, I can understand. I am an email subscriber so, I won’t miss anything!

    Have a wonderful day!

    Sorry to see you end this meme but I do understand.
    See ya later, alligator..:)

  3. Claudie says:

    WHAT? Are you kidding me? Saying goodbye but wondering why, it’s time for saying goodbye???
    OH NO, why can’t we just keep it going, even if it’s just me and you girlfriend? Who cares if there aren’t many? OK I’m going to cry from listening to this song. Ok listen to my song, it will make you smile I know it.
    Did you see my shot of the grass I had on my FB? Not sure if it’s still there, but keep up the great work in your photo class. Wish I could have taken it with you. Although the commute would have killed me lol.
    I think plastic clocks are so much better than a vacuum. What the hell was your hubs thinking about? It’s beautiful just like you.
    I’m not saying goodbye, just aurevoir for now. See you soon : )
    Love You
    Love Me

  4. Hi Claudia
    Even though I didn’t get over too often to participate, always enjoyed doing so. 
    I like your photographs with the challenge to show something specific and they are very good.
    I’ll be back to visit and invite you to come over some time too.  Good luck with your assignments.

    It’s sad to see something this beautiful end.

    I’ll be visiting every Friday still to find something beautiful to share with you.

    Blessings on you and your family.

  8. Claudie says:

    Stop that song from playing please. It makes me so sad. I’m not letting you go, and that’s it.
    I’m going to bed. I was going to call you, but now Randy is in bed 🙁
    I will call you tomorrow night ok?

  9. Nancy says:

    I’ve always enjoyed this meme, Claudia and you’ve done a great job.  Such a sweet sad song…but I’ll be checking in on you to see your lovely pictures.  I’ve never cared if there was one or twenty…it’s always been fun.  Thanks for doing this – I know they can be a lot of week.  I’ll be around…meme or not!!! xoxo Nancy
    PS  Love the music – mine is always on!

  10. I’ve been enjoying this meme and sad that it has come to an end! I like your photos very much! They are certainly beautiful..The numbers shouldn’t matter since only the ones that truly see beauties that count!

  11. Pam says:

    I’m sad that you’re stopping…I did think of you during the week.   The entire blogging process has made me look at my world differently…I really do look around more and I love peeking into others world who may live far from me and see things I would never get to see myself.  I understand but I’m sad that you’re stopping it.  Thank you for being part of my week.  I love the picture of the ornamental grass and your clock story is so sweet.  Thanks Claudia…you helped me to notice my world.

  12. molly says:

    I sure hope you will consider starting a photo meme one day. I love your shots the classes are sure fun aren’t they?
    I will miss joining you every week, but will continue to find beauty in everything I see because of you.
    I love your little clock and know it is cherished.
    Not saying good bye cause I will be back to check your lovely photos out.

  13. Curtains In My Tree says:

    I am sorry also about this being the last FFB since I just found you today. It has been my pleasure


  14. Pat says:

    I hope you don’t end Finding Beauty, Claudia, but I fully understand if things in your life are hectic now and you can’t keep it up. I hope you do continue as I try to join as often as I can!

    Your photos are all beautiful!  It must be a challenge to fulfil a theme for each photo,  but you did a wonderful job. There is so much to learn about photography’s so much fun!

    ♥ Pat

  15. Claudie says:

    See what I mean? Nobody wants it to end. You have made an impact in peoples lives.
    Think about that won’t you?
    Talk to you tonight.

    something lingering….my weight (tee,hee)
    and something precious…I can see why that clock would be so special to you
    and monotone……LOVE the grasses

  17. Claudia,
    The last finding beauty link party? Please say it isn’t so! You must reconsider. This is one of my favorite link parties.  : (    Pretty please with a cherry on top?
    I will be linking up.  Just have to create something extra special to compliment your beautiful photography. Love the precious and unexpected story. So very sweet.
    Your Friend,

  18. PS  If YOU are too busy to do it every Friday how about every other or once a month? Just don’t stop!

  19. Sharon says:

    As you can see, you have been  a wonderful influence in so many lives.  I thank you for all the time and effort you have made.  You have shown me soo many new ways to look at my surrounding, I aways come away from your blog with a smile on my face or a tear in my eye.  You truely have a gift.  You have always been an example to me and you always will.  Love you Sharon

  20. I’m sorry to see Finding Beauty end. I only got to participate a few times since I started my blog in July, but I always enjoyed it.  I guess I take the “blogging without obligation” approach — so I can just enjoy it — and I didn’t think the number of participants was important.  I just appreciated the beauty…  Love your photographs and will stop by still.  All the best to you, Claudia!

  21. JSELEP says:

    I loved this meme.  I will miss it.  I don’t publish blog postings as much in the summer, perhaps the nice weather is why posts dwindle.  I will miss this as the weather gets colder, the days shorter, and I have more free time at night.   If you change your mind at some future point, I will be happy to see this meme again.
