An antique medicine bottle embossed with the words “NOT TO BE TAKEN” = A nice find that makes for a nice vase that makes for a picture that needs to be taken…
In the mornings when I let Teddy out into the backyard, my eyes catch these little silver lizards (nearly) concealing themselves along the lines of the fence. As soon as I touch the gate, they scatter. This time I snapped a photo first.
She needs a helmet, I thought.
And then, look at the wonderful way her hair is blowing in the wind! Glad she’s not wearing a helmet!
She looked like she was right where she wanted to be.
There’s inspiration to be found everywhere…
While doing yard work in a jungle-like corner of my mom and dad’s back yard, we found this sweet little nest. I was delighted to see the words Dream Big at the bottom of the nest, and laughed when I realized it was a scrap of a Marlboro wrapper…Spanish moss, newspaper, chewing gum wrappers, and a receipt made up the rest of the nest.
More good advice from the little bird…work with what you’ve got.
It was a dark and stormy night…I was in the darkroom, the windows open for fresh air. Wind rattled the screens and shook the blinds. As I expected but didn’t prepare for, a big gust of wind rushed in and scattered my little collection of fragile items. When I switched on the light and gathered up the pieces, I found the lone wing. (I think it would be nice as a large print.)
