Does Anyone Really Know What Time it is?

Not in my house. Unless you are checking your phone. 

Or the oven digital in the kitchen or the two on the desk in the front hall.
  
The weekly challenge is Time

The clocks and watches in my home are not synchronized with the time zone.

The one below is correct  too but I had to remove the art work to check it 

    Digital clock was a retirement gift. Right time on the Roman Numetals once I took off Joan’s artwork she sent for Christmas 
  Grandfather clock works but not set

Winter Afternoon Rainbows

Light through the dining room chandelier in Ohio. 

I was folding sheets and towels, fresh from the dryer.

The afternoon sun streamed in, through the window and then the dangling crystal, onto the door jamb and the sweater drying on the laundry room door. The ceiling, too.

The colors intense and vibrant. 


Xanadu Gallery Hosts a Vibrant Scene

Scottsdale, Arizona. My midwinter break.  Last Thursday night’s Artwalk.

We peeked in the Xanadu Gallery on Main Street and heard Pat Roberts and the Heymakers making vibrant music.

Delicious chocolate brownies and wine served in the back amidst vibrant artwork.

The weekly photo challenge is vibrant.

I read the fine print and am not allowed to post my photos of artist Bruce Munro’s vibrant Water-Towers, at the Desert Botanical Garden but if you click on this link you can see his perfect photo of his light installation.

 


Letters at Home

ALPHABET : The Weekly Photo Challenge

I looked around the house and found letters in several places.

IMG_5087Old wooden baby blocks on my desk in the front hallway.

 

 

IMG_5088Alphabet rubber stamps I used to use in the Art Room, dust and all.

Plastic canvas and yarn baby blocks I stitched for my son Mark in 1976.

 

Crewel Alphabet Sampler I stitched in 1975.  If I could have removed the linen from under the glass with ease, I would have done so for a better photo .

NOW-post 4

  
Walnut Street. Shadyside- it’s then-a few hours ago. I’m with my son Mark. He let me take the photo in the mirror as we stood on the sidewalk. 

And Now we’re in the kitchen,

at the table.

I’ve been knitting all evening. 

We’re listening to Moody Blues, Jefferson Airplane, Paul Simon and the Seekers. 

  


Crazy Fun- Mermaid Tails, Sharks and Karaoke, Xmas Sweater Selfie and Family!

Froo Froo Marlene has been crocheting for months. Hand work takes time

Her efforts paid off though cause the grandkids (who all swim for Ohio State Swim Club)  were excited to receive their aquatic afghan sleeves. Marlene also created some photo books for each grandchild too, and I got a creative magnet and mug with all the grandchildren featured!

She made one for Baby Charlie, too.  Here he is being swallowed up by his Jaws blanket!

PapPap picked out the wild and crazy SingTrix Karaoke Machine (as seen on Shark Tank, too) It provided a lot of entertainment and everyone wanted a turn.  Pap Pap’s rendition of Elvis’ Love Me Tender is still at number one for the performances.

 

 

 

A very merry Christmas and I just read the Weekly Photo Challenge is NOW

Now

Sometimes, we get caught up in nostalgia, future fantasy, or both, and we don’t embrace the “now.” For this week’s challenge, take a moment to notice your present, and share a photo of it.

If you are a crocheter and want the link to the patterns, I’ll get them from Grandma Marlene in the morning

 


Eye Spy: Weekly Photo Challenge 

Eye Spy it’s all about the eyes this week. 

Charlie sports his Rudolph hat as his mom carries him with a new “baby-wearing coat”. 

He’s peeking out, snug and warm.

Changing Ads in NYC Subway

In keeping with this week’s theme -a NYC Transit worker illustrates Transition

but two images required. 

Spotted by my sister who alerted me as to what he was doing.  
   
 


Transition 2: Weekly Photo Challenge

Sunday afternoon I was still thinking about how to best illustrate Transition in a single image. The “yarn to knitted hat” photo was well received. What else could I depict to show transition? 

Talking about it with my sister, she suggested the ice cube. 

I was hoping to get a lone droplet falling off but this one is about to drop.   

In my sisters kitchen, New York. 

Photographing ice reminded me of trying to photograph glass so it doesn’t look blah. 
 I like responding to the challenges and seeing how others interpret the same theme.
