scavenger hunt Sunday . . .



* routine *


I feel like I do laundry all the time.
Every day of every week.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* music *


"I'm a little bit country. I'm a little bit rock & roll."
This bear makes me think of those lyrics because he generally sits beside country cat ornaments.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* technology *


... and when I'm not doing laundry, I'm ironing. Do people even still iron? (other than me of course!) I mean, I guess they do because I am in the market for a new iron (my current one is only slightly newer technology than the one pictured) and holy cow are they pricey - apparently it is like $10.00 per steam hole. Personally I like the one with the retractable electric cord; but what do I know, I'm just the ironer!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* show me your style *


I would have to say that my latest (photographic) style is 'old school' - processing and pictures that have an aged look to them. I don't always apply this 'style' - but I do like it when I see it.

... and bling. I like a little bling now and again.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* mismatch *


I thought about all the mismatched glasses in the cabinet. Or hodge-podge of socks in the drawer. But after hustling around preparing for at best a power outage, or at worst a tornado; I noticed how mismatched our collection of candles were.
But when there is no electricity - does it really matter if they match?
(we were fortunate to miss both the power outage and tornado - it went north and south of us - like the parting of the red sea)

  9. I really like your "bling" :). I never iron...actually, my son was home last week and asked where the iron was and it took me longer than I'd like to admit to find it, haha. But I love your interpretation and photo of that old iron.

  11. When I saw your thumbnail of the camera, I thought for sure your technology pic was of a camera - you fooled me! what a great series, and thank goodness the tornado missed you!

  12. I love your camera charm. Ironing does not exist in our house. We throw it in the dryer and hope the wrinkles come out.

  14. These are great, Nicki!
    I thought I was the only one who still irons. At least that's what some of my friends tell me. Now I can tell them they don't know everything. :)

    1. Nancy - my sister and I used to refer to them as 'sad irons' because of the depressing stories our mom would tell about having to iron with them. I use mine as an ornament at the fireplace. (there would be a whole lot less ironing if I had to actually use this).
