March Photo Challenge ......

Here we go..........a few days into the month

March 1 - Clock 
This is my new Flying Pig Clock.  We picked it up this summer down in Cape May at a store that was going out of business.  HWNSNBP was the one who spotted it first and said I should get it.  I hemmed and hawed, but since it was somewhat drastically reduced I agreed with him.  It will be going in my craft room which we are aiming to have done by the end of this month, so you will see it in it's new home.

March 2 - Morning
March 2nd is Read Across America Day and everyone in our school received a Dr. Seuss bookmark that morning - me included!

March 3 - Kitchen
Can you tell I've been longing for spring - buying flowering houseplants like the small pink cyclamen on the window ledge.  It's in a plastic cup inside the silver cup that my great-grandmother bought for each of her grand, and great-grandchildren when they were born.  My mother finally gave it to me on my 60th birthday and it really needs polishing, but the flower fits so nicely in it now.  And HWNSNBP found another bag of paperwhites in the basement refrigerator that I planted in a bowl of glass stones.  We picked up a pink flowered oxalis and the little blue plant at the Great Swamp Nursery on a recent trip there (we also bought ceramic pots to plant them in but I haven't gotten to that just yet).  

March 4 - Where I Sat
March 5 - Sharp
I was going to take a picture of the chair I sat in for bloodwork I had done this week, and thought about getting a picture of the colorful "sharps" they use (empty ones of course), but I chickened out thinking the technician would think I was a bit too nutty.  So I will have to revisit these prompts at a later date.

March 6 - What I Wore
A new scarf that I treated myself to from Zulily (which is becoming a slight addition for me).  

March 7 - Hair
Once upon a time my hair would not have stood out this much against a black cape.  

March 8 - A Mess
Trying paint samples on my craft room walls.  This was my son's room and I always loved the color, but I want something different and HWNSNBP has put up with my indecision.  There were some holes that needed spackling which is the white you see.  I had a Tiffany blue in mind but it seems to be eluding me.  The closest, and what I've decided to go with is what is called True Turquoise next to that biggest white spot and not too clear in this picture.  This room is a mess and will be a mess for the next few weeks.  The ceiling and walls need to be painted, the carpet pulled up and replaced with laminate flooring and all my stamps, tools, and supplies that I've been slowly taking out will need to go back in with more shelving and something other than a folding table.  I'll keep you posted.

March 9 & 10 - Homemade/Favorite Drink
There was a post on Facebook with a recipe for a Shamrock shake knock off with less than 1/2 of the calories of the original.  I decided to try it out.  Then I decided to spit it out!  The homemade was no where near as tasty as the original...... and I followed the recipe.  The mint whipped cream was okay and I was tempted to save that, but for what?  So for the month of March I will enjoy the real thing only.  I just have to limit myself to one per week.  


  1. So glad you decided to get the clock . . . it will be great in your craft room! I had a wall I did that to once . . . although I painted the whole thing (3 times). Beautiful blossoms and scarf. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Oh, you just had to get that clock!! It had your name on it.
    And that scarf is just beautiful, the colours in it are so vibrant.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
