Something That Makes Me Smile

Going on a photo walk with my favorite little girl makes me smile! She loves using my old point and shoot camera. And I love that she enjoys taking photos and finding beauty in nature, just like her momma!

My daughter loves these Holly Hobby dolls. My sister and I had these very same dolls when we were growing up. I was ecstatic when my M-I-L found these dolls to give to my daughter.

My faucet set to dripping and a blue plate placed in the bottom of my kitchen sink created this splash shot.




In the Sun

I took a bit of time one afternoon this week to take some photos of the flowers in my garden. These Forget-Me-Nots had there pretty little faces turned up towards the sun. I love these little plants! The flowers are small and dainty, just a bit more than 1/8th of an inch, but they pack a punch in the color department.
