The room below is my MIL's soon to be my sons home.
Now the photo below I had used in a challenge last year and made septa at that time. The original is one a disc and I am too lazy right now to sort through them but it is standing present day building in town.
This is my bedroom, cluttered.....
The first is me and my brothers and sisters. The only time I looked good in a swimsuit. I am the oldest girl. I aged it and added some grain to make it really look old, actually this is a pretty old picture.
Old quansa hut
My MIL's livingroom, added to much grain to this one I think
I like the way this old building looks.
And the bedroom rocker.
I noticed the aging of the photo make them blurry so you have to sharpen them and then age them and add grain if you want to really age them.

Most in the jar below are cat eyes and banana slugs.
Now the next 2 are my latest man made marbles. Big and bold. The first is about 1 1/2" pull and feather
And this big one is about 2" and reminds me of a tape worm with a gas bubble, LOL.

Post your challenge entry on your blog, come back here & leave your link in the comment area on either the FUN or JUDGED category.
Please follow the basic guidelines & keep in mind the minor change.
Ok, sick to death of the marble yet, LOL. This is a jar of my FIL's old marbles from the 30's 40's. I antiqued them and added a antique frame. Looks pretty cool if I may say so myself. And I did take this photo a few minutes ago. Ta DA!

I will post a subject, you go photograph it and tell us the story behind the picture. :-) It means using your camera, using your words and best of all getting to know each other at least a wee bit better! :-)
On Tuesdays I will post the subject and the following Monday I will post all the links to those who participate.
Let's just get on it with it!
This weeks photo/story:
I collect ________________ (dust bunnies, spoons, dogs, rings, etc). Share
a photo of what you collect and tell us how or when you got started
with the collection. Is there something you are looking to add to the
I collect pottery, mostly McCoy. I like the earthy feel of their pottery and the glazes. It started out as just one piece my MIL gave me and I found myself looking for it at the auctions I would go to. Since I was a dealer I bought and sold it over the years and kept the best for myself. By selling it it allowed to have the income to keep the best. I have thinned my collection and this is just a few of them and just one of the things I collect. You have all seen my marbles, LOL.
And I know it just asked for one picture... but here are my hand made marbles. I inherited my FIL's marbles. There are a couple of hundred I display in neat old bottles. They were used as he was quite the marble master as a child so they have dings and chips. Researching them I found the wonderful world of hand made marbles. True works of art in a small way. So now I collect them also.

This week photograph whatever you'd like. If you don't have time to get out your camera, then pull something up from your files. That's okay too.
This is from my files. I just like the peaceful feeling to this shot. This is midway on one of our favorite bike trails. We always stop and look at the river. Sometimes we have lunch but it is always peaceful. This was late in the afternoon.
