Goodnight Moon | Outside My Kitchen Window

Go outside and look at the moon. This is the night sky outside my kitchen window taken just a few minutes ago. It is very beautiful. Goodnight moon.

Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show #134

This Weimaraner named Sizzle is enjoying some well-deserved lap time. I guess you're never too big to be a lap dog. I love this breed. They all seem to be so comfortable in their own skin.

Snow Treescape With Sun

The sun has turned the trees in this forest into bars of gold. Stunning. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Rosemary.

HMCraig Art | Thanks For The Mention

HMCraig Art: Rules to Live By (borrowed edition)

Thanks so much for the mention. This is the only way I could think of to contact this talented artist and blogger to thank her for mentioning me on her blog. I wanted to leave a comment but they aren't enabled and there is no email contact information. You need to fix this. Let me know if you need help. Thanks, Rosemary
PS...You should follow her.

Wonderful Antique Windows

Now that's what I call a window. I don't think I've ever seen a better one.

These interior windows are wonderful too.

Abandoned windows. I could never walk away from these, could you?

Curved window alcove with ice crystals on the glass. Nice shutters and fabulous carved millwork. I'd love to have some frozen windows to photograph today. These would be perfect.

I've always liked windows that opened awning style. Love the vines too.
Enjoy the last weekend in February.

English Squirrel In The Snow

Here is another one of those wonderful English squirrels. It's very fitting for him to be in the snow since so many of us are as well today.

Playing with Pictures: The Art of Victorian Photocollage

This looks like a fun exhibit. Maybe you'll get some ideas for what to do with that shoebox or drawer full of old family photos.

Architecture At Dusk

I love to see homes at night when the all the lights are on. It is supposed to be good feng shui too. No bad Karma can hide in the dark nooks and crannies.


I like these modern interiors too. You know I love the bookcases in the upper one and the amazing view in the last one.

Two Photos | Eight Minutes Apart


The clock in my camera is not accurate. I must fiddle around with it to see if I can reset the time. Anyway...these photos were taken 8 minutes apart and now about 10 minutes after the last one was snapped there is not a single patch of blue in the sky. We've had every kind of weather today except rain.

Logging Before Chain Saws

I love old photos like this. Can you believe the size of those logs? All cut by hand in the era before power equipment. True man power! It must have been very dangerous too. How did they tie down the logs? How did they get such perfect measurements?

Icicles

I had a small window of opportunity shortly before noon to go outside and shovel the walk, clean off my car, walk Webster and add a few seeds to the bird feeder. The sun came out for a few minutes too. The short-lived opportunity quickly turned into another whiteout. Now there's sun. Mother nature really can't make up her mind. The icicles were just beginning to form on my copper gutters in this photo taken from inside the cottage. Be back later, Rosemary

1937 Lincoln Zephyr Automobile

Now that's what I call a car. I love everything about it. Wonder how it would handle in the snow? It is probably quite heavy since there are no plastic parts. It would look fabulous parked outside my cottage on a sunny day. The car and my cottage were both built in 1937.

Enjoy Your Coffee

I'll second this motion. I require two large cups of coffee in the morning to get me through the day.
