DAy 31 - All done!

The topic for today is "YOU again"

This was taken a few years ago at Disney world.

SO GLAD this is the last day of January. This month has been nothing but a pain. Here's to Feb 1st!!!

I think I am going to continue on with the challenge but will post once a week or so with the topics. I like having a topic to take a photo of and it is fun to come up with ideas.

Day 25

"Something I made"

This would be my art journal that I cut pages for, made the covers and bound into a book. I would like to make more. This one is about half full of art.

The last 3 days...

Day 22 - "Your Shoes"

Well, up here we are wearing boots - so these are mine on my front porch. I am liking these new boots very much and my feet are nice and warm!

Day 23 - "Something old"

That could be a lot of things around my house. :0) but I saw this first. I got this online and it is the back of a vintage photo of a young girl with this on the back.

Day 24 - "Guilty Pleasure"

If you know me at all - you know the answer to that one! lol I got these today - little baby peanut butter cups. If I dont eat the whole bag as a snack (!!) I think these would be very good in brownies. mmm.

That would be the homemade maple syrup that my friend Carol makes so wonderfully!

On my breakfast waffles - yummm.

Can't wait - because that will mean that spring would be on its way. :)

"Something I bought"

I bought this awhile ago but I like how it photographed. This is a necklace I got on etsy with a real acorn top and glass made acorn.

I like how it looks like a little blue earth.

"Something you're reading" Yeah, this isn't too hard. :)

Its harder to decide to show only SOME.

This is the pile on my coffee table of next to reads...

And these are my new books from the library this week.

"In my bag"

I have shown this on here before, but I love my fossil wallet. Even with a skeleton key on the zipper!

The colors and fabric rock too. :)

Day 11 and 12

I was away for a couple days and just got home so I am posting now.

Day 11 was "Where I sleep"

I love my cozy mattress with huge down comforter this time of year. Beside the bed is an old school desk I have had for years with some treasures beside it including gifts, glass from Venice, and a rock from Squam that says "It's never too late". I see that each time I go to bed, so I can remember that. :)

Day 12 - "Close- up"

This is a detail of one of the postcards I send my daughter each week while she is in college.

I keep this photo beside my desk so I can glance any time...

Day 9

"Daily Routine"

Of course that would be my computer! This is my personalized igoogle page. The theme changes daily so I never know what it will look like. All of my sections stay however. I have weather, tv listings, news, artist of the day, places to travel and more!

This is yesterdays screen shot to give you an idea of what I mean.

This is an almost full moon with a haze circle around it. This is in my backyard through the trees.

It has been quite mild here and we even had rain! Unheard of in Jan. Today though back to cold with -14c.
