Tuesday Photo Challenge – Nostalgia

Here is Dutch Goes the Photo’s ( Tuesday photo Challenge.  This week’s topic is:   Colour of Love (

“Your challenge is to share a photo or photos that make you think of the way that things used to be; this can be good or bad, your choice, and, as usual, your artistic license is to strike out and come up with your creative work!”

A few things that made me think about times past when I saw them.








Share Your World – February 20, 2017

And now for this week’s Share Your World (

When you cut something with scissors, do you move your jaw (as if you were about to chew)?

Well, I wouldn’t have thought so, but now I’ll be thinking about it every time I use scissors!

Do you chew your pens and pencils?

Nope – no chewing of pens and pencils here – nope – move along…

Are you a collector of anything?  If so what?

Thoughts and wits (not always successfully…)

What size is your bed? 

Not big enough for someone who sleeps at a diagonal…

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am continually grateful for my work colleagues (you know who you are) who are the strongest people I know!  Looking forward to the weekend and finally spending time in my garden!  (and lounging with kitties in front of the fire…)
