After Dinner Shoot

After dinner this evening hubby took me for a shoot.  I haven't been out much lately, due to the heat.  I can't wait for some cooler weather!

Since nobody enlarges these, I'm trying to save space and keep them smaller.  Hope you like them.

 Yes, that's a fin!

Isn't She Lovely

Remember the contest I mentioned winning HERE ?  It took some serious pondering to decide who I wanted Lotta Joy to draw for me.  I was wracking my brain trying to come up with someone special, when hubby said, why don't you have her draw one of your famous (although very distant) relatives?  Absolutely brilliant idea!  She and I both got to work, to come up with a photo.  I didn't want the "iconic" photos that you see all over the web, I wanted one that showed the age and character in that beautiful face, that time wasn't able to erase.

My oldest Son, who is a huge fan of this person, helped decide the photo Lotta would use. This magnificent, original artwork will be passed to him, when I die.  Until that time, she will grace my wall and every time I look at her, I will think of Lotta Joy and her wonderful, talented hands... AND BE GREEN WITH ENVY!

Thank you, Lotta, from the bottom of my heart!

Please allow me to share with you, Audrey Kathleen Ruston, better known as "Audrey Hepburn".

Here are a couple of different perspectives, depending on your point of view.

If you are a tall person, you see this...

 If you are a toddler, you see this...

If you have young kids and you are at an eating establishment and see a sandbox, what do you think?  I think, glorified litter box, germs, grit,  filth, sand on the kids and sand in my car.  Sand is for the beach, where I expect it and am prepared for it.

A kid would probably think, yippee, SAND!

When a kid sees a sandbox full of water, they probably think, there goes all the fun!  When I see it, it's, oh, thank goodness, no excuses necessary!

Have a great week!

A Big Thank You And A Few Pics

Kathleen, over at My Dark Cove Pantry, was kind enough to give me the Liebster Award.  Thank you, Kathleen!  I hope you will take time to visit her lovely blog.  She lives in Gambo, NL, Canada, a very beautiful area.

"Liebster, as a word, is German and means: sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome."

I no longer do awards, however, I will post the award pic and link, on the lower portion of my page and extended my deepest appreciation to Kathleen for the thought.

Now I will share some photos that will make you double check the water, before you jump in!

 And one last one, to get the above images out of your mind.

 Now... GO VISIT KATHLEEN, PLEASE.  She's nice, you'll like her!
