Reflections from the Saints

"It is not the actual physical exertion that counts towards a man's progress, nor the nature of the task, but by the spirit of faith with which it is undertaken."

– St. Francis Xavier

side tables of wood

pallets painted white and stacked

wooden pulleys

bonus of hang tag with grommets

the white heart has been posted before

there is a range of colors

Two Tone

two tone shoes are one of my favorite things

I have owned blue and white golf shoes
(high school and I did not play golf, it was the shoes-the cleats were removed)

brown and white loafers

gray and brown are an unusual color combination

they work here because of the amount of white

does this become a tricolor?

Images from sweater and umbrella from Topsy Design, gentleman from Trendland via Advanced Style other from either Convoy or jjjjound.
