Happy Hodge-Podge




We've been pretending it's summer...


The Paper Mama



...with a little watermelon!  Sam really enjoyed it...







Give me your best shot at Better in BulkPhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and Lolli




And, speaking of Sam.  He gave me the sweetest Valentine.



Apparently, he found a paperclip at school and formed 
it into this little heart.  Then, he kept it safe in a 
special part of his backpack until Monday.

Love that boy!

It was another lovely week, with plenty of warm sun...



Photobucket




This crazy weather is giving my vintage plant
stand a "weathered" look that I really love!

That watermelon looks so good. I can hear the birds chirping outside right now and its nice to know that spring is hopefully on its way.
I love the paperclip too! Soo soo sweet!

Wow the drop coming from the watermelon. I so can't wait for summer!
Also loving the weathering of your plant stand!

That first photo is fabulous - the droplet of melon juice descending from his chin, just perfect. I like your sky shots too, so clear, bright and blue!

Miranda said...

THank you! After I took the picture, I adjusted the white balance and colors levels so that the whites were whiter, the blues bluer and the reds redder. :)

It's warmed up here too, highs in the upper 70s. YAY!

That heart shaped paper clip has got to be the cutest, sweetest thing EVER! Can you wear it as a bracelet? Or wear it as a charm on a necklace.
