Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

Pattern.  This week I actually took a few photos to respond to the weekly challenge instead of sifting through the archives.

It was a wonderful Mother’s Day with an unexpected trip to meet the family at The Wilds in Cumberland OH but stay tuned for that post.   No time for uploading tonight.  Using the iPhone camera tonight, looking around the kitchen for patterns.  Came upstairs and saw the afghan on the bed.  Impromptu pattern photos.

Traffic pattern-  coming back from The Wilds we were totally stopped on Interstate 70 around Zanesville.

China pattern.   I used to like the idea of mismatched china.  Service for 12 in twelve different patterns.  It was an idea.

Silver Pattern.  My grandmother’s Moonglow and some random pattern in my drawer.  Used to be you would select a silver pattern when you were getting married.  Lots of couples choose stainless these days.

Knitting, Sewing and Smocking Patterns from yesteryear-  another life.  I used to do all these things when the kids were small.  I still knit.

A Chevron pattern- the crocheted afghan that a coworker’s mother made for my mother.  I call it the Good and Plenty afghan.

Anyone who works in this magnificent building will get a sneak peek during the day. There were ten of us working most of the day Saturday to hang the art and place the tags by each piece.
Awards ceremony is Monday evening at 6:30 PM. Sponsored by CITIPARKS!

How about those Tiffany columns? The marble, the windows, the painted ceiling? And all the student artwork? Wow!

I can’t wait for the students to see their artwork on display in such a wonderful setting.

1984- Moment in Motherhood/Childhood

Grafenwoehr Germany. Under the kitchen sink!  One of my favorite photos of Mark, Matthew and Laura.  Everyone laughing, having  a good time. (Mark’s own children are about their ages now).How they decided to get in the cupboard I don’t know but looking at this picture always makes me happy. Scanner not working so photographed the photo.

Who makes me a mom?

Looks like an oven rack or a cooling rack in Matthew's hands. Laughing under the sink.
