I believe everyone’s life has a purpose. We are here to discover that purpose then use whatever gifts were bestowed upon us to make this world a better place. Some of us are fortunate as we know at an early age what that purpose is. Others, well, we go along, often digressing from the road that will take us there. This is me. Now on the other side of 50, I am finding my way back to that road that will lead to my life’s purpose. Welcome to my journey.
Before “showing off” my finds this week, I want to express
my appreciation to those of you who stop by and leave such fabulous, encouraging,
and touching comments. This is my 3rd
week joining in on the scavenging and I am having so much fun! New to blogging, I'm still trying to find meme's/link parties that I can call home. You all are such a wonderful group of people! Thank you.
Here’s what I scavenged up this week for Ashley’s
1.Plants we grow and harvest
2.Way to frame an image
3.Cutting something very short
4.A group or batch of something
5.Handle of a whip
I have to admit, I had a difficult time with this one. I first thought plants in a field or at the
Farmer’s market (boring!) plus the only crop growing in the fields around here
is snow! My next thought was cropping a
photo in an odd way. I came up with zero
(too left-brained for this sort of thing).
But in hunting through my photos I came across this shot; BINGO! So I did cheat on this one as I did not take
it this week, it was taken while I was stationed in Korea. I took it because I was fascinated with the idea of peppers laying
out to dry along public walkways; just don't see that here in the US. Back then I took photos to
document my life overseas for my family.
I took rolls and rolls of film and sent them back home with lengthy
Keumtap variety of red pepper
It was a toss-up between 2 photos so am showing off both:
I came up with this
while trying to fix it. It is an antique
fountain that I fell in love with at an antique market.
This little guy was adopted from a garage sale. I fell in love with his funky texture. He sits on a bookshelf in the same bathroom
as the fountain.
On the ground
Nothing but snow on the ground here and I’m tired of snow
pics but after coming up with only vapid ideas I bowed my humble head and took
Out the door, down the steps, & circle back; less than 10 feet total.
Cleo is tired of the snow, too. This morning she refused to go any further
than she had to to answer nature’s call.
Blooper: Where things don’t go as planned
I spent last weekend putting together a magazine journal for
a swap. It was getting late, I was tired
of gluing and then I noticed this:
Oops! Glued the backside of this page upside down.
I could only laugh, punch holes in it and include it in the
journal. I hope the recipient has a sense
I was originally going to use this as detail but I bought
this lamp because I wanted some color for my dining room.
And these are my favorite college colors (Go blue!):
