Weekly Photo Challenge: Order…

From glass bottles in Edison’s workshop in NJ, to copper pots in Newport, RI, to boats in the harbor at Plymouth, MA, to chairs in the Tabernacle on MV, to a display of peppers, to bikes in New York City, to grapes in a vineyard in Cape May, New Jersey.  These are my choices for … order .

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dense…

The prompt is : This week, share your take on “dense” — you could focus on a natural landscape, or take the theme in a different direction, from a crowd at a rock concert or a busy avenue during rush hour to a fresh loaf of bread, waiting for someone to take the first bite.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was going to try and stay away from fog, trees, flowers, food, cities but you know what, that’s where all the density seems to be.  So from boats in a dense fog, to a house covered in  lilacs, to the skyline of New York City, to chocolate cake and candy, to the dense colors of freshly spun yarn, and to the density of a sunflower, , here are my choices.

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Good Match…

The prompt: This week, share a photo of a satisfying pairing from your own life. You should by no means limit yourself to edible stuff — You can mix and match places, people, objects, and activities that represent your idea of a harmonious, pleasing combination.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You might find this match on a dressing table…

… but it makes a better match as a salt & pepper shaker set 🙂

And then there’s my favorite sandwich.. lobster, mayo, celery on a split roll with fries.. a classic New England match.

February Calendar Pictures …

My February pictures are.. the wall calendar on the left is of a beautiful amaryllis that a friend gave me.

The desk calendar picture on the right was taken in CT last February on my birthday… went to Rowayton, CT to meet a friend for coffee.  Before my daughter and I got there my friend had hung a ‘happy birthday’ banner over the table and had gifts and all kinds of pastries for us.  It was a spur-of-the moment get together and it was  a lot of fun.
