I know I have not posted in a very long time but this struck me funny and I wanted to share it and felt this was the best audience. 

So yesterday I felt pretty.  I had a good hair day, my make-up went on nicely for a change or so I thought.   I was wearing a brand new shirt and some shoes with a heel.  As a side note, I NEVER wear heels! I left my house early and told my husband good-bye.  No comment.  Went by my daughter's house to pick up my grandson, no comment.  Went to church.  No comments from anyone.  Met my brother and sister in law for lunch and then on to a demolition derby.  No comment all afternoon from them either and my sis is usually the first to notice a new shirt.  Ran into my other brother and his son.  No comment.   Back to church for an evening event.  Still no comments.  Came home and STILL no comment from the husband.  Then today my sister in law posts a picture of us at the derby and granted, I had a sweatshirt on because it was cold,  but oh my gosh! I look terribly big.  I AM the heaviest I have ever been in my life so there is that.  Guess I didn't look so hot yesterday after all.  Just wondering if anyone else ever feels like they are looking good and then realize maybe not so much?

Anyways,  it was a really wonderful day though.  Great weather, great family and friends, a fun derby and my church is pretty great too.  I did spend much of the day smiling & laughing.  I'm not delusional about all that at least. 
Me in the grey.

Image of Jesus in 1942 photograph

This is a photograph of a bird in a tree that my grandmother took in 1942.  She kept it in her bible because of the image of Jesus that came out of it.  My father has the original. 

I wanted to share it with the world.  I thought it was spectacular when I when I first seen it 40 years ago, and it still makes me feel so happy to look at it today.

Creepy faces caught on camera

As Halloween approaches I decided to re-post this picture I took in 2007 of my great niece.  She was just learning to walk and still crawling up the steps of my parents home.  I thought it was cute so I shot this of her backside and immediately saw this face on the screen of my digital camera.  It is very CREEPY!~   I also see one on the back of her right arm.  

Any explanations?  The ONLY photo alteration I have done is to adjust the contrast so you can see the details even better.  I'd love to hear your comments.

Repurposed Tree Stump into a beautiful Gnome Home

Sometimes you just can't let a tree stump by just a tree stump! 
At night the attic light comes on!

The Gnomes have moved in right after these photos were taken!

Here you can see the solar lights beside the door which light up at dusk.  The owl door bell is a nice touch also, and the black bear Welcome sign, fitting for Missouri!

A balcony.

The back door. Just too cute!
