Merry Christmas!

This photo was textured with kk_cecile and kk_sybil.

Today I am linking up with Kim Klassen’s Textured Tuesday.

These Christmas ornaments were my Grandmother’s.  My sister made a wreath for me using the ornaments.  I love it!  I put it on my pantry door where I see it often, I just have to remember not to slam the door.

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas.  
My Christmas wish for you is that your heart be filled with love, your worries be few, and joy surround all your celebrations.  Merry Christmas!
Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a Wonderful Holiday Season!

I won’t be posting again until the beginning of the New Year. I can't wait to see you then!

Taking Time To Smell The Roses

This photo is textured with kk_frosted and kk_patina.

My life seems a bit crazier during the Holidays with all the extras that need to be competed.  Yesterday while I was rushing through my kitchen, I noticed the flowers I bought last week were wilting, even crispy on the edges.  Then I remembered my plan for those flowers.  I bought them not only to brighten my kitchen, but to satisfy that creative urge to snap a few photographs.  Life got in the way.  

I decided to stop and take pictures.  

This photo textured with kk_frosted and kk_patina.

My daughter was getting hungry and was wondering what was for dinner.  Pasta was my answer and I would be finished in a minute to make it.  Well…  I couldn’t stop.  I shot every angle possible in my little space.  I moved here, shifted a little there.   I played with netting.  I turned the vase around, shot into the light.  I would have shot longer but the sun was setting and I ran out of light, and I was getting pretty hungry myself. 
It felt good to stop and smell the roses.  

I hope you take some time to stop and smell the roses today. 

Have a great week!

Little Snoopy

Photo taken with an iphone and textured with Kim Klassen Textures kk_teddy and kk_sepiascratched.

Today I am linking up with Friday Finds.

I went shopping with a friend yesterday.   We went to a little town full of antique shops and a few boutiques sprinkled here and there.   The weather held out and we had a great day. 

The very last shop we went into had a Little Snoopy.  This was my favorite toy when I was little.  I would pull him around for hours.  His wheel axles are bow shaped giving him an up and down bop when he is pulled.  He also makes a funny squeak noise.  This Little Snoopy has sure seen better days, but he is still cute.

I loved Little Snoopy!  I guess I still do. 

Do you remember your favorite toy growing up?  

Have a great weekend!
