Tuesday Treasures



It's such a beautiful time of year...and Easter is around the corner, 
so I'm feeling extra thankful right now!  Like...


I'm really thankful for the men around me.  (Dirty, ragged nails and all!)





ShutterLoveTuesdays



...and my beautiful home, in an amazing area, where 
kites are very, very popular...





...and there's plenty of color 9 months each year!

And, in case you're not aware of the blog/photography/facebook effort
for Japan..."a penny saved is a penny earned"...OR

...a crane made is $2 earned!

What lovely photos for Sweet Shot Tuesday. The hands are so precious, full of your sweet family memories. And the trees are such an encouragement to my senior mom and me, that spring really is coming and gardening hand in hand with it. YAY! I'll encourage her with that as she trundles her garden wagon back and forth to a few minutes of sun and then back in the garage if now starts again. :) Thank you for a fun visit.

Love your kite photo and hand photo and origami crane photo. Did I miss one? Oh, and your sweet shot. OK...well, they're all great!! Lots to be thankful for, that's for sure! I can even think of a few things I'm thankful for in spite of the cold and bare trees! :-)

Liz said...

all of these are very nice. That sky shot is great. I have a hard time with the sun and sky, they always look washed out, need to oractice my settings for this type of shot.
