Diptych Day….Green


Happy St. Paddy’s Day to ya!!  And to think our photography word was Green this week. 
Ahh….good ‘ole synchronicity.

I really hadn’t a clue what I was going to photograph that represented Green.  I would’ve liked to have photographed some GREEN GRASS, but the grass is still pretty splotchy brown in spots around here.  And yes, quite ugly still!  Recently my daughter needed some beanie babies for a school project.  So off she went to find them....they had been condemned to the basement.  She dragged all three bags up 2 flights of stairs just to find the beanies she needed.  10 days later the bags were still sitting in the upstairs hallway.  So before putting them back in their dungeon, I thought I’d look through the bags for a green beanie or two.  As you can see I got lucky, I scored 7!  What a craze this was!  Early on, I used to snip those little red ty hearts off of the beanies…until I was scolded for such behavior.  Because after all these are going to be worth some real money some day!  Really!!  R…i….g….h…t……!   I believe I did make a promise that I wouldn’t give them away……but still if everyone’s saving them, then who’s buying them?

Chel @ Wild & Precious Life took the pretty floral picture above.  Now she wouldn’t have any trouble spotting green grass where she lives!

Lovely greens! Perfect for St. Paddy's Day! We never got into the Beanie Baby craze but that could be your retirement fund right there...hehehe

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
