Photo A Day Nov. 27--Tree

The Italian cypress at the corner of the lot. It's somewhat the worse for wear after last year's windstorm and a few earthquakes--but I find it rather endearingly scruffy, rather than perfect!

Photo A Day Nov. 29--Big

A BIG basket of yarn scraps and ends-of-balls.

Photo A Day Nov. 28--Vehicle

My trusty kiwimobile.

Photo A Day Nov. 30--on the wall

One of the "feather tree" quilts that I put up every year. Antique buttons courtesy of my mom's button box.

Sandy finished the quilt top--this one's for her daughter Deb.

Photo A Day Oct. 18--Made Me Smile Today

My elusive little girlcat--she comes out of her hidey-hole and visits me, which makes me smile every time! Terrible picture, I know, but she doesn't hold still.

Photo A Day Oct. 7--Light

The wall fixture in my dining room--copper and stained glass crafted by James Mattson. The trees carry the theme from a Bachelder tile set into the fireplace. At one time, this house had a magnificent 150-year-old oak tree in the back--sadly, it came down in a storm in 2005.

"I have a little shadow who goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see."

Photo A Day Sept. 28--A Good Thing

Salad for lunch. Nice to be back in the land of recognizable lettuce and chunky blue cheese dressing!

Not that I didn't enjoy the salads in France, but after a while it became a tossup whether the greenery was going to eat me before I could eat it.

Photo A Day Sept 27--Love/Hate

Yes, I love my cat, but I kinda hate it when he won't let me sew!
