More Color to Cheer You

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

kidsframeddrawings25.jpgI have had these images framed since before I knew Brian. They once graced my living room wall when I was single, grouped with perhaps 4 other images. All were gifted to me by children in my life.

The heart I think was from Ashlee, the granddaughter of a coworker. This child probably is in High School or graduated by now. The image that says “Lynn” was from my Goddaughter, Sara, who is now in her fourth year of college.

The frames were dollar store finds, and though they look inexpensive I love the added color. There is nothing like a good dose of strong color to greet me first thing in the morning! As someone who wakes up VERY slowly, this is a fine antidote to the morning blues.

My Winter Garden

I copied Cynthia’s idea, with her blessing. I got $2 or so of balloons and put a little water in them, then blew them up the rest of the way. Put them in my containers that hold plants in the summer, and took a photo.

The ones at the bottom of the stairs didn’t last long, they lost air right away. I don’t know if they were defective to start with or if the grass in the pots eroded the rubber in the balloons.

Last night we had wind that sounded as if the Wicked Witch of the West was arriving any minute. I wonder how the balloons did? I assume a neighbor will find them against a fence. Whoops!

It was fun while it lasted.
