Feb 2012 – Photo A Day – #14 Heart

Day 14 – Heart

I was surprised by how many different places heart shapes were  in my home.  If you had asked me yesterday I would have said… ‘none’!  lol

This is a pair of arm rest covers on a couch in the living room!

Tea light holder in the master bedroom.

The pewter piece is a paperweight I made in Jr High school, the purple ones are button covers, the gold one is a pin and the red one represents “my” heart that I gave to the Patriarch after a long time of martial turmoil. You can read a bit about that here.

This is a sweatshirt I made for Valentine’s Day in the late 80’s or early 90’s.  It took  f-o-r-e-v-e-r  to sew on all those buttons!!

You may also enjoy reading about a few of the things I have done on Valentine’s Day for the Patriarch here.

This year I am cooking up a special dinner for us all; pot roast, mashed potatoes, peas, salad, and a special gluten free pink lemonade pound cake.  That will be a separate post!  :-)

Feb 2012 – Photo A Day – #8 Sun

Day 08 – Sun

Here in the Pacific Northwest, on one of our rare sunny days you will occasionally hear someone ask, “What is that thing in the sky??”.

Knowing that day 8’s photo theme was what is SO rare here, especially in the winter, I took the liberty of shooting a pic a day early… it was sunny of all things!!This is part of the series of photos I am working on of this valley.  I am overlooking the valley towards the Olympic Mountains.

As frequently happens when the sun shines here…

the air quality gets less then desirable.  Can you see the smog layer at the base of the mountains?

But then… ah, the gentle ocean breeze that keeps our air clean.

There I was, innocently putting things away in the kitchen when what do my wondering eyes behold…?

Yep!  The sun peeking out from behind the clouds!

It’s been raining here the past few days.

That is what we call “liquid sunshine”.

:-D

Feb 2012 – Photo A Day – #7 Button

Day 07 -Button

I love buttons!


This is a button on The Patriarch’s Navy pea coat.

These are some of the buttons from my grandmother’s sewing basket.  They were given to me when she died in 1996.  Her favorite color was yellow.  I miss her.

We are huge train/railroad nuts in this home.

So when I needed to “invent” a persona (Aunt Mae) for my website (no still not up and running… so much work to do!), and after much thinking decided she was Irish or Scottish, I found this button made into a hat pin on eBay!  The perfect hat pin for Aunt Mae!
