Tuesday, April 13, 2010
I'm doing it late this month.
Composing a 12 of 12 post is hard on a weekday ... especially on a Monday. I always end up with a few pics of my commute to work, a few trips of my commute home (not much interesting to take pictures of while actually AT work), and a few random pictures at home in the evening.
So while I have a few commute pics and after-work pics, I though I'd just post pics of some things that make me happy. A little pick-me-up is in order these days.
So, Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you April, 2010 12 of 12 from Seattle, Washington, USA.
This poor guy has been walking around on this corner, dressed as the Statue of Liberty, for at least a month. He's an advertisement for a local tax-preparation agency. Not exactly sure what Lady Liberty has to do with filing your taxes. And neither does the hipster dude frantically waiting for the light to change so he can cross the street.
Scott's birthday was last week (21 at last!!!). The bouquet of flowers I had delivered to the house is gradually opening ... roses, fragrant Stargazer lilies, and snapdragons. Purty ...
One of the garden statues out back, starting to be hidden by the red-twig dogwood. It's always cool in the fall to see the statues that have been hidden by summer foliage. Now it's time to say goodbye as this one starts to get covered up again ...
Years ago on a vacation in Paris, we stayed a block away from the Baccarat store in Place de Madeleine. This set of wine glasses came back with us. I've never seen Scott sweat as hard as he did in customs back here in Seattle. The suitcase containing the crystal was the only one they didn't ask him to open.
A very dear, incredible friend of ours (whom we need to get back in touch with!) spent a while in South Africa a few years ago on a scholarship. She brought us this beautiful hand-beaded bowl. I love it and use it whenever I can. Lemons look cool in it.
That's it. Thanks for looking and reading. Y'all are great!
