Remembering my Dad

Tuesday, April 28, 2009



Back to my favorite antique shop again. I spotted this beautiful pitcher (of course, I love blue) and just had to snap a picture. Then I got chatting with some wonderful people who had traveled across the state and I forgot about taking more pictures. I will just have to go back again soon!

No editing done with any of these - just using different focus points.

Trying some different things with these pearls!
(No wisdom this time)

Saturday, April 25, 2009

These pictures are not good quality, but I hope you look at them and see why I posted them.
This is a scene that I have seen many times in my life yet I am always in awe each time.
I spotted the new calf in the field and ran to get my camera and by then "Mom" was helping her new little one to its feet.
I was about 180 yards from my subjects and they would not stand still (explains bad quality).

Pearls of Wisdom

"It is good to have an end to journey towards,
but it is the journey that matters,
in the end."

and make a brand new start,
anyone can start from now
and make a brand new end."

Some of my favorite things:
A good book, a cup of tea and good friends!

I put a little "spin" on bridges! Above is the bridge on a guitar.
Below is the bridge (nose piece) on a pair of glasses.
However, I did include a bridge that I took before.

I wish I had the time today,
To sit and rock with you.
But chores do call my name,
And there is work that I must do.
Instead, this picture I will take,
And dream of one day soon.
When I will have the time to spend,
To sit and rock with you.

Today I visited my favorite antique store and spotted this very pretty item and asked what it was used for. Imagine my surprise when I was told that it was a "slop pot" - the commodes were emptied into this! Such a beautiful item for that purpose - I couldn't believe it!
The items below are butter crocks - I really like the blue one!!
I should visit more often - I spotted a lot of things to photograph!

Happy Easter!! Below are pictures of cards called "Table Topics". They are conversation starters - had them on the dinner table, not that my family needs any help on starting conversations!! It was fun, though!

Someday I will learn! I spent all of yesterday running last minute errands, cleaning the house and baking rolls because I wanted everything "perfect"! As the rolls came out of the oven, I grabbed my camera for a quick picture and then thought I would post it later. At about 3:00 this morning, I remembered I had not posted my picture. Then, very early this morning, as I was mentally making my list of things to do today, I spotted this figurine (below) on my hutch. It reminds me of my kids when they were younger and how much more important it is to spend time with them and not worry so much about trying to make things "perfect". We all know that nothing we do is perfect, and the only thing I managed to do was make myself a little more stressed. So, my list for today is to watch a movie with my daughter. I wish you all a good week-end and some time to enjoy it!

A parent, a child, a husband, a wife or another special person. The touch of one hand to another can make a person feel so special and cared for. Then, there is the talent given to us, to share through our hands, to give others joy - what a wonderful gift!

No, I didn't take this picture today. I was just trying some different things with some shots that I took on a much warmer day.

What a day!! I need some pampering - I am sure that one of my favorite scents will help!!

The shadow on the wall is from a candle to the left.

Trying to be clever - I need to keep trying!

This picture was a "mistake" - just snapping here and there trying out some things. There isn't anything on this wall or ceiling - just a plain white ceiling and off-white wall. I added a tint to bring out this shape. What is this - maybe I wasn't alone in the room????
