Chill - A coolness in the air, a reduction in temperature, the onset of a cold or just plain chillin' out!
Frankly, I've had quite enough chill, but this is what we woke up to this morning. Just yesterday most of the snow had finally melted in our front yard, but it's covered again. Two weeks from tomorrow we'll be in South Carolina for spring break--no snow there! I can't wait.
HS: MS prompt for today: Cup - A small bowl shaped container usually for holding liquids. Show us a cup in your space today.
I found this cute little cup at Anthropologie when I was visiting Sarah in Princeton. It's just the right size to hold little odds and ends that I may want to use on the next project. I have a passion for red cups, tins, whatever. If I had room in my tiny study, I'd have a whole collection of things like this.
Despite my best intentions, I haven't managed to keep up with the Her Space: My Space prompts. But here are most from last week:
Self portrait / Someone Else portrait...show us a portrait today!!!!
I'm trying to learn how to use the manual setting on my Rebel. This was one of my first attempts this weekend. Matt let me take a few shots before he headed back to campus after his week here for spring break. I'm pretty pleased with the results.
Dress: A one piece item of clothing for girlies - have you got a dress?
Yes, I still have dresses, but nothing like this. I recently found a pile of photos from my childhood. My mother wrote "Ready for Sunday School" on the back of the photo.
Cloth: A piece of fabric or material or clergy attire (would love to see a pic of that!). Have you got cloth?
Before I got into paper crafting and photography I was an active seamstress. That seems like a long time ago now. I rarely use my sewing machine for much other than mending and stitching on cards and layouts. These are piece of fabric that came in a scrapbook kit--can't remember which one.
Books: Bounded collection of pages or to determine a reservation - give us books!
The only rooms in our house without books are the dining room and the bathrooms. There are piles and shelves full in every other room. Many have been read, but an equal number are waiting to be read!
Blanket: Fabric sheeting to cover, warm and disguise. We all have blankets - which is your favourite?
This is not fabric, but hand-made and brought to us directly from Ireland when a dear friend of ours spent a semester studying there. It's frequently in use in our somewhat drafty living room.
Her Space: My Space prompt: Seeds -A plants power of reproduction. Find some 'seeds' in your space today! Monday my class planted terrariums which eventually will house crickets and isopods as part of a science unit called Ecosystems. Here are the seeds ready to be picked up by the kids:
HS: MS prompt for today: Relief - Creating a mold that stands out from it's surface.
I acquired this after my father passed away. It belonged to one of my great aunts or great-grandmother. There's no one to tell me exactly who. I certainly don't use it to iron, but I do use it to weigh down paper projects, and it works great. When I saw today's prompt, I had no idea what to photograph, but as I was looking for something else I saw the pattern on the handle and the "6." I love it when a prompt makes you look at every day things with new eyes.
