Gallery 4 {Good Luck Charm}

I always have these with me and often reach for them for grounding & connection. 

A key that opened something, I imagine a drawer, in my Great-grandma Mac's house,
a penny with a heart cut out that my son gave me & 
an engraved silver lock given to me about ten years ago by my late beloved.

Gallery 3 {sugar}

This week I was lucky enough to attend a 6 Year Old's birthday party with plenty of, you guessed it, sugar in various forms.  I actually took more pics of people than treats.  :)  But here are a few pics of the bounty & one of the birthday boy!

 Chocolate on Chocolate. mmmmmmm

 (Adults seem to have been more drawn to the cupcakes, 
something about not wanting to have a blue mouth...)

 Happy Birthday David! 

Super Hero Pop Rocks and Candy Sticks.
(candy sticks?? yeah those went by a different name when I was growing up)

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush

Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave bereft
I am not there. I have not left.

Gallery 2 {Criss Cross}

The full Gallery 2 can be found here:

My offering for week 2, Criss Cross, is taken looking thru a black wire basket. The basket sits on my desk usually holding pens, pencils, small stapler, push pins.... well you get the idea.

Gallery 1 {Fire}

Going back through old photos I found a few from July 4th 2008 of Fireworks that I kinda liked. I decided to use a few of those for Gallery 1 {Fire}...

p.s. if you see the Pyrotechnician (fireworks guy) running you should try to keep up...   just sayin'.
