June 12 of 12

Hopefully y'all know about 12 of 12 by now ... you post 12 pictures of your day on the 12th of the month, and share them at with everyone else at the blog of The Host With The Most, Chad Darnell. You should do it. It's fun - really!

These pictures were all taken on Friday, June 12, 2009 in Seattle, Washington.


My shirt for the day.


Leafy shade trees lining the street.

Orange and white.

This sounds like a '70's sitcom title - "Jack Jack and The Cheese Man".

Red, White and Blue.

Very disappointed in some recent news, but still want to have hope.


As in little houses for you and, you know, me.


I love the lonely little window box on the second floor.


Somehow makes this sad little building look kinda happy.

Red and Yellow.

Condiment-inspired newspaper boxes and fire hydrant.


I LOVE this color, especially since it's so unexpected here.

Blue and Yellow.

This bowl was a gift from a dear friend when she returned from living in South Africa.

Pink, White, Green, Silver.

The planter at the bottom of our porch steps.

Black and White.

The friendliest cat in the world, Hunter.

Thanks for stopping by. Come again.

Shocked-shocked!-I am that Kali let you take 12 photos without being in at least half of them.

I may have to go to South Africa to get me one of them thar bowls. It's kinda purdy!!

Hey Matt, those are some very colourful photos and like the shirt too :)
Insomniax cafe is a great name, assume it's 24 hours too.

I have a bowl just like it - also from Africa. It helps to have family there to send me cool stuff :)

You know what my favorite color is???

Baloo. :)

Matt said...

Scooter, I was pretty sure that was the answer. :)

Mine, too. *smooch*

Regular 12 of 12 reader (and sometimes-poster) here -- Great idea for a color-coded 12! I love all the pictures of the buildings with their various color splashes. It's nice to notice the small things.

Nice idea for a theme! I like the turquoise painted fornt, it does make it look cheerier! And Kali could have done for ghostly pale brown ;-)
