My son’s engraved silver baby cup. Nineteen years later, it sits in his junk drawer scratched and dented. He keeps both foreign and old coins in it.
Would I rather have this cup sitting on a shelf, pristine and shiny in near-mint condition? No way!
I apologize to you wonderful ...

Today's photo challenge theme is a DIRTY WORD! I am too innocent to participate. I just cannot do it. Or so I thought. Until I turned the corner at the Dollar Store today and saw complete and absolute….
Christmas. October 15. Total and absolute B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T.
My Favorite Food
Published on Monday, October 15, 2012 by Katherine
How do you pick? Sushi. Angel Food cake with seven minute icing. Dolmades. There are so many!
Favorite foods often boil down to where you eat the food and with whom, don’t you think? When I think of these foods, I think of moments in time when I ate them with people I love.

Years ago, a BB gun hole magically appeared in my front window. My boys and their neighborhood friends had been shooting for days. But somehow, none of them accidentally shot the window. Pretty amazing, huh?
To this day, the hole-maker's name remains a secret. And every time I see...

I will show you the “before” picture just so you can appreciate the “after picture,” representing today’s photo challenge word CALM.
My CALM photo is dark. It is not framed well. It was taken at a strange angle. Because when you have a new puppy in the house, and the pup...

I am actually loving this 30-day photo challenge. No, really! The subject thrown at us today is HEAVY.

I had today’s challenge all worked out. I got someone to help me. Together we made a plan for a really neat shot. I take a picture of him on top of the garage taking a picture of ME taking a picture of HIM.
The stalker gets stalked.
Pretty cool, huh?
And then I read THI...

Today's subject for the 30-day photo challenge is "Rules."
"Last time we did this I was astounded by the sheer number of grown people who couldn't follow simple instructions." Guilty as charged. But you didn't say you had to be grown to participate.... my bad! That's why I am LOVING...
In the Pink… Hair!

What a timely photo challenge topic… “Hair.” Because this is Breast Cancer Awareness month, which means it is time to pink up my hair.
Here’s to my mother, a breast cancer survivor. And Trish, this one is for you as well. You had to leave too soon. Sarah, keep fighting. ...

Vibration, Mandolin Style
Published on Saturday, October 6, 2012 by Katherine
Day something-or-other of the photo challenge, with the theme “Vibration.” The biggest things I learned during this particular “shoot?”
No matter how much you try to clean the dust off a mandolin, it won’t come off.
After two adult beverages, you really don’t care.
