Greetings friends! Just popping in to say hello.

I've been sitting on my couch here, collecting pictures on Pinterest. I know everyone's probably been on for ages, but it's new to me. It's a little bit addictive. OK, a lot addictive. Are you on?

September Sunshine

I went out for a quick bike ride to try to find something I passed by the other day. It was some sort of book sharing / drop off box, nailed to a post in one of the alleys around here. 
I couldn't find it though. 

On my way out, I saw these sunflowers ablaze in the early evening sun. 
I must pass by everyday, but not really notice them. 
Maybe it was because I had my camera, that I was paying more attention. 

As you can see, I live in a neighborhood full of character. 
It's not all roses... or sunflowers but it's my home and I love it the same. 
Sometimes it just takes a little editing while looking about.

I thought I would also show you this wall that I pass by all the time and do notice. 
I love finding the quirky and unusual.
They have quite a substantial container garden just beyond. 

Cheers everyone. I hope you're enjoying the tail end of summer as much as I am.

Bad Blogger!

 I've been away for over a year! I'm not a good blogger. I stopped for a week or two, then procrastinated. I didn't even make a post saying I was on a break for goodness sake! I'll give it another go though and try my best. I'm hoping to get re-connected and make new connections. I'm hoping that re-starting this blog will spur my creative juices as well.
It's always nice to have feedback.
Hope you're doing fine and dandy!

I will really try and learn new ways to use my camera. These colours look a little washed out. Speaking of which, I bought the bed spread on the bottom, which said dry clean only. It looked brand, spanking new, but there was no way I was going to follow those laundry instructions! It looked perfectly fine when it came out of the washer, but when I got it out of the dryer, the colours where all washed up, you could say, very faded. It's super synthetic. I'm wanting to turn it into a big laundry hamper-bag and maybe a laptop bag? What do you think?
