NEW Mantle Decor


Happy Tuesday!  You know…one thing I love about blogging is, it keeps me somewhat accountable regarding my projects.  I’m sure you don’t remember  (but I do!!!)….that I previously mentioned I’d like to have different mantle décor every month.  Well…that really hasn’t happened in 2014.  BUT, I remember typing that statement, and it IS a true statement…I’ve just gotta make it happen in 2015…or 2016.  SO…here’s November’s décor.  I have stuff for December…but January needs some serious help!  Wish me luck…and any great ideas would be greatly appreciated also!


Have a great day!  Do or learn something NEW!

NEW photos of my week #34


I went out shooting yesterday and was a bit disappointed at the lack of…really anything, that caught my eye.  I came home and told my hubby that along with “No Shave November” (my son has a bushy, bushy beard)…this month should also be known as “Nothing to shoot November”!

However, I’ve learned that a good photographer can create a good photo out of nothing…so I ventured out and gave it my best shot 🙂

For the top photo, I’ll link to Song-ography. I was inspired by the great photos in this week’s song video:

Also, this week on Scavenger Hunt Sunday, the prompts were: Starts w/S, Texture, A Blessing, Warmth, and I Went.  Here are my interpretations:


Starts w/S: Stuck!




A Blessing: Friends that bring you cookies to enjoy!


Warmth: Is this too much of a stretch?  Firewood is potential warmth, right? 🙂


I Went…to the park to get a shot of Mt Timpanogos.

And one last miscellaneous pic:


Have a terrific week!  Do or learn something NEW!
