This is the final day of Quilly's Reflect This challenge.
For my PhotoHunt entry please scroll to the next post.
This is the glass door of the corner cupboard in our sitting-room. This room also houses his'n'hers computers.
Reflected amongst my bric-a-brac you can see my husband working away on his computer. On the left of the photo you can see my computer wallpaper. You might even see me, concentrating hard, on the right of the photo!
You lovely people out there have made me feel so much better today. Thank you all from my heart. A special Thank You to Liz, for her sweet post.
As today is the fourth day of Quilly's one-week Reflect This challenge, I'm posting a photo of Badger taken on a walk not very long ago. This was her favourite puddle whenever we'd had rain, and her face is reflected.
Two Fer Tuesday is hosted by Jonna. These are her rules: Two fer Tuesday is easy. You just have to post about a pair of photos that have a theme, like Autumn, cars, a trip. The theme can be of your choosing. The theme may be direct or implied. You must explain how they are related, if implied. You must post at least 2. If you must post more than 2, they must be in pairs.
Jonna goes to music when she feels down. I go on a walk, or just out to my garden.
The first of my pictures is a part of my small, currently overgrown garden. I took it this morning. In spite of the dull and cloudy weather there's enough colour to cheer me up.
This second photo is the same part of the garden reflected in the window of my son's scooter shed.
This is economy morning. One photograph for two memes.
There I was, running around looking for reflections to keep Quilly happy. When I saw this one I realised it's a good Odd Shot for Katney, too. Sort of two birds with one stone!
A word of explanation may be in order. The door you see in the distance is our front door. I'm standing by our kitchen table. Between the kitchen and the hallway is a window, which is great for bringing extra light into the hall, and for snooping on whoever comes in! Behind me is a window onto the back garden. The reflection shows the small shed where our dog sleeps, and the houses backing onto us. You may also be able to see a mirror on the right-hand wall. It has an octagonal wooden frame. It is reflecting my son's hi-viz waistcoat which hangs inside the front door. Oh yes, you can also see a reflection of part of my "rounded" waistline!
I've just discovered that Quilly has set a challenge for this week. We are to find reflections. A rapid flick through my files brought this one up, taken last March on a Sunny evening. I liked the way the front of the house was reflected and distorted in the bonnet (hood) of the car.
Melli started a dragon hunt to celebrate her 1000th post. I was late starting, but this is my third out of the six days.
This is a bronze treasure pot, only about four inches high. There are four dragon heads spaced around the pot. The lid rests on the top, and the treasures are guarded by a beautifully detailed small dragon.
This is a twig of my son's ornamental crab-apple tree. It has purple-red new leaves, deep reddish-pink flowers, and now some small purplish apples. There's one on this twig, but you need to look closely! It looks lovely against the sky.
Favourite Things Thursday is hosted by Blue, visit her for other favourites.
I missed out on last week's, as my daughters were visiting and I had no time for anything but talking. Family is my most favourite thing, but I'm not blogging about family right now. No, I'm going to talk about something else - the pleasure I get from receiving packages in the post. Recently I had a lovely surprise. Denise Nesbitt was giving away some of her hand-made cards, and I was the lucky recipient of one of them. An envelope came through my door, containing not one but two cards.
Even the envelope was pretty!
This is the "Thank you" card.
With such a sweet message.
Below is the card I won.
It has a cut-out window, a pretty design background paper, and a central raised flower.
Inside the cover is a lovely garden quote,
more pretty paper, and the blank message pages which I haven't photographed.
This is the very back of the card.
I should think of someone special to send this card to, but right now I intend to be mean. I'm keeping this beautiful thing for myself, at least, for now.
