Photo a Week

Another warp speed week and here it is again.  Monday! time for the second of Mary's choices.... "Hearts and Flowers".

I definitely don't have flowers outside to photograph.... I'm a bit envious of the girls down under... even some of the girls in the UK have snowdrops visible.  We have had several days of thick frost and the last two even more weird...they are calling it "freezing fog".  It is so thick on the trees now it looks like snow...and yet it hasn't snowed for weeks... no sun the last two days either...so strange for us here.  We usually get lots of sunshine...  all through the winters.



















But, I found some indoor flowers...















... and a few hearts.....















A new scrunchie...I'm still boycotting hairdressers... it's getting long...


Working on my second dolly .... hoping to get something Valentine looking... the Cloth and Clay Doll site where I found the tutorial for the Gritty Jane doll has a page for Queen of Hearts dolls this week.   Today she got hair.  I'm still trying to decide if I want to paint her black under the skin colour...maybe she won't be grungy this time.........

Beautiful photos, Vee! I think you are the master at setting up photos. You've really raised the bar on our photo sharing. You should be putting some of these on greeting cards and selling them.

Your photos are amazing. I didn't get a chance to comment on your winter scene pics a couple of days ago, but was totally blown away by them. These images today are also delightful.

Looking forward to seeing your doll when you finish her!

My favorite is the one with the candles. I love the warm glow they cast on the frames and the flowers! I'm anxious to see your new doll, too.
Meantime stay warm and cozy, spring CAN'T be too far away....can it?

Love seeing these warm cozy photos on this snowy Vineyard day! I've been looking in my garden lately, hoping for snowdrops. Instead I'm getting snow...

I like your photos! Love that cup.

We are heading into the mid and high 70's for the next ten days, I'm so excited I can barely sit still!!

Hope you see some sunshine.

Improvising allows for your imagination to get carried away. I love your indoor flowers and hearts.
