Welcome to this week's list of likes!
Let's start with lemons!
Lovely fresh lemons in a bowl I made as a teen, it's like a cabbage leaf. It's the perfect shape, size and color
Please notice the picture at the top and the brilliant shiny white highlights.
The most interesting part was looking at them in person, and not seeing the highlights. It wasn't til I saw the image that I noticed it. And it's strong but my eye didn't notice it. I thought the strong shadows were interesting, but only saw shiny not the distinct white highlights.
So, it tells me, that's why we add in certain elements to a composition. We assume a light source and exaggerate a shadow and highlight. Sometimes we feel it's too much, unnatural. Then I see this and say, nope! Real life.
The clear colors of spring green, and golden yellow next to the dull yellow of the banana are a bonus.
kit from connecting threads.
It was on clearance and Halloween.
I figured the fabrics came out to about $5 yard, it's enough for the whole shebang, and comes with a pattern.
All with free shipping and to my front door.
I ALWAYS love Halloween.
Now I need to find my sewing machine supplies...
I like getting children's books at the library. I admit when I placed a hold on this, I didn't realize it was a children's book lol.
When I was undergoing regular allergy treatments with acupuncture, I used to stop by the library on the way home, and go up and down the aisles. I would pick a bood from each shelf til I had 10-12, sit at a table and read til I tired of it. A number of them were children's books on things like how a castle worked, or the orphan train.
I did it to avoid the allergens at home for a certain number of hours post treatment, but it opened my eyes to so much I would never have known.
I love my puppy.
He's almost 11 months old very tall and very skinny. He is persistent and wants a lot (read, A LOT) of attention. When I work at the computer, he comes over to see what's so doggone interesting!
Sometimes he just stands next to my chair and I drape my arm across his back to rub his tummy. Love.
He stands very still...
I finished the scarf for dh...
In the ball of wool it appeared more blue. Life is full of surprises, no?
I'm finishing up the hat to go with now. One hank of yarn makes a scarf and hat, bought on sale at Michaels.
This week, I randomly looked at a new person's info after she left a comment. She had fave blogs listed, so I went to a random one and found this.... ain't life grand?
It makes my heart sing
I wrote a bonus LIKES post this week on my trip to a mountain craft show...

Milo always has a good time. He liked playing with this edible ball this week
Oh No, Milo saw much more potential in it! He said, look Mama! It rolls, throw it! So I rolled it and he ran to fetch. Only when he picked it up he tasted something sweet. Something worth investigating... hmmm...
MILO: heyyyyyy, this isn't no ordinary ball-toy! Has this been here the whole time? Yum! So, I played with it, I hit it around with my big foot. I chased it, then sat down to chew it up like I do all my toys. Guess what? It tasted good, like food. So I ate half of it, until Mama got interested then I had to act like it didn't matter.
She threw it away just as it was getting good. Note to self, be really quiet about investigating new stuff.
