Celebrating Women for the Real World



Stuff Portrait Friday!

The lovely Kristine over at Random & Odd, has had a rough month, but she still is able to give us our assignment for SPF. This week we are to take pictures of:

1. Something ‘Sparkly’
2. Something ‘Dull’
3. Something ‘Colorful’

SOMETHING SPARKLY

This would be the sparkle reflected in the wood floors. This picture is from Christmas and I loved the way the lights “sparkled” when reflected on them. This by far has been my most favorite “home improvement” project that Big G and I completed.

SOMETHING DULL
I think a butter knife is pretty dull (at least it is if your trying to cut a big ole Texas sized steak). I actually owe Big G for this clever idea because I couldn’t think of a darn thing.
SOMETHING COLORFUL

This wonderful piece of artwork came from my son. He was in fifth grade (2000) when he painted his interpretation of his pet Lewi the lizard. The damn thing is still alive only much bigger (about 50″)!

Did you play?

    WOW, your Christmas tree is so in the wrong season! I agree though, good floors are very nice!

    Great interp on the knife. I can’t tell by the pic, but it could also be dull in sheen too. Double whammy!

    I played!

    You have an aspiring artist there. Love the lizard art. Had to get rid of mine when he got bigger than my labrador retriever- Jeez, they never die.

    Love your choices in pics. The dull knife-that’s great. Leave it to Big G (he’s so smart). Of course, I love G2’s pic.

    The “dull” pic reminds me of the board game, “Clue.”

    “The Professor did it in the library with the butter knife.”
