Pinterest and Snapshot Saturday - May 12, 2012

I have been uninspired to blog this week, but I am looking forward to this post!


Day 5: Bird(s)

Day 6: You

Day 7: Someone Who Inspires You
This is an old picture of my grandfather.

Day 8: A Smell You Adore

Day 9: Something You Do Everyday

Day 10: A Favourite Word
I cheated but it is pretty when you put the words together. It was raining so I couldn't go 'Cellar Door' hunting.
Day 11: Kitchen
I hate my kitchen, so Casey in the sink will have to do. If you look closely you can see her tongue.
Other Pictures from the Last Few Days:
Just to prove she is angelic sometimes.
My first postcard for my 'Postcard Project' arrived. Thanks, Care!
Then, more arrived. Thanks Meg!
Thanks Charlotte!
Then, I went on a picture day yesterday because it rained all week:
The statue is Evangeline from a poem by Henry Longfellow.
The church
Apple Blossoms
On the way home the sky turned like this...
Then, for the Pinterest challenge I read Code Name Verity and posted about it here. I also read the newest Cinderella Fables, but have not blogged about it. I had pinned both books.

That makes 3 projects down.

  1. Great photos, that last one is stunning. I love a cellar door too- come to think of it, I don't see nearly enough, despite living in a wine growing district.

    1. Thanks, Louise! I was getting a few groceries and had to stop to take a picture! I think the houses in my immediate area are too modern to have cellars...

  6. I think all of the pictures are very cool. I like the different prompts that you used. I took care of a neighbor's cats last month and they loved drinking from the faucet in the sink!!

    1. Thanks! I am not big on taking pictures of myself, so this was my compromise. It was purely accidental, too. The cat jumped on my lap and I thought 'this could work'.

  9. Woiw! feast for the eyes! Love Days 5 & 8 ... such interesting angles and color. Love the idea of the postcard project (I collect postcards of the US states maps -tackier the better) ... I also love the poem 'Evangeline' so the statue and church are interesting to me! And who doesn't love a sweet kitty ?!

  12. These prompts are such a great way to encourage taking photos daily! Your pictures are great... especially love the kitchen photo.

  13. Tolkien thought the words "cellar door" among the most beautiful in the English language.

    Your photos are great, Kelly!

    1. Back when my grandparents gave me a few of their postcards there were some pictures mixed in with them. I left them there, but I recently reorganized and took the pictures out. I have always really enjoyed that picture, so I thought it would work perfectly. That's a fire engine behind him. Let me know if I answered what you were asking. :)

  15. Gah, I love all these pictures. I really ought to start paying attention to my photography again one of these days!

  16. Lovely photos! The smell of coffee is my absolute favorite, so I laughed when I saw that photo. :)

  17. So - you must live in the valley near Wolfville and Kentville where I spent the first four years of married life! Beautiful country - and a happy time.

  19. Love your pictures. The coffee mug, cellar door and the cat shots are my favorites :-)

  20. Your pictures are beautiful Kelly!! Even though it was kind of drear on your photo-safari I think that it perfectly fits the mood of the shots.

    And such a tease with your "you" picture. :P I really need to catch up--I'm still on "something you do every day."

  21. I like all these pictures! So evocative. I do especially Casey in the kitchen sink...I had two cats, Momo and Ms. Ribble who looked quite a bit like that. LOVE.
