I thought it might be nice to document my improvement in using my new camera. Hopefully I'll improve....but if not I'll have 52 photos to look at a year from now. One photo a week. Someone or something in my home or yard or life that strikes me ~ for whatever reason.

Thrift Store Treasure
This is a little angel that I rescued from a pile of ceramic at my local thrift store.  I love her sweet face and the little bits of red! The fact that she cost $1.21 is also pretty sweet!

Look 29


My garden isn't doing as well as I had hoped this summer. Parts of it looked very nice this spring. But the HOT summer sun and then the buckets of rain have totally confused the vegetation in my yard. Fortunately, even though the garden doesn't look great ~ it sounds wonderful. These chimes make the sweetest sound!

It's A Knock-Out!
My friend Patrica gave me a Knock Out Rose Bush for my birthday last month.  It's a wonderful plant that blooms from spring until first frost.  Today I saw this pretty bud on it ~ it's the first new bud I've seen.

Angel In My Yard

I went to Books a Million yesterday and bought the new issue of Somerset Life.  Then I worked out in my yard.  I worked hard for several hours.  Weeding and raking and digging and watering.  The whole time I was thinking about my Somerset Life.  I had two more yard projects I wanted to complete. But then I looked across my yard and saw the Angel reading.  The projects can wait for another day, Somerset Life here I come.
