I wasn’t that young when I got this – it’s from my first trip to France in 1991. The original design (The Sower) was by Oscar Roty in 1900.
This is a crank flashlight, it does not need batteries. It really is only good for a real emergency!
Yes, it really does say “smile”! The other 2 grey stones are from Positano beach in Italy.
It’s both difficult and fun to do a self-portrait. Glad it was only a small portion of my face.
How do you feel about self-portraits?
My Habitat boots! Paint-spattered, scraped and muddy, these boots have been on 3 Habitat builds with me. They remind me of the labor of love that was donated by so many people for others, and the feeling that you get *so* much more than you give.
EDiM (Every Day in May)
This mansion was built in 1870, and the fence has always caught my eye throughout the years. I just went there today for a concert. Excellent music and an interesting explanation about Beethoven and his String Quartets.
I bought kale for the first time. I heard about baked kale, (with olive oil and salt and garlic) which is supposed to be delicious. Do I believe everything I read? No, but I wanted to try it for myself. I like healthy foods, especially if they taste good!
Not much to say about my lighter, except the color is kind of pretty…and, oops! I forgot to add the flame!
An onyx bowl from Mexico. So beautiful, especially in the light…the onyx portion looks so delicate, yet, the bowl is quite hefty. However, certainly I did not do the bowl colors and shading justice. The brown trim on the top is, granite I think?
