WEE-Me dolls ---thanks Heather!

I received the CUTEST family in the mail today. Yes, the mail and I had so much fun photographing them. They are called wee-me dolls and you can purchase them from the FABULOUS Heather Bauers on Etsy. She hand paints and custom designs these works of art to your order - this family is for some special people in my life. Please let me know if you want more info on getting your own family personalized. They are SO adorable and the detail is amazing. Send her a couple photos, tell about the individuals and she creates a cherished gift of a family as wee-me's. I do not have any talent for painting like this, or the patience, so I really admire her work.

These are two sweet little valentines in my life - my cousin's daughters. Love em...

I'm usually not a big fan of selective coloring but it works for this I think.

We had our first great snow of the season! I can't believe living in the midwest we haven't had one before now, but today was the real one. Fluffy and beautiful. Thanks for looking.

The windmills in our area. I was going through some old photos and found these. I know the photo below doesn't exactly work for opposites but I guess in an abstract way it does and I really like this photo. Thanks for viewing.

Yum...peppermint ice cream with a peppermint stick.

For those who want to know what the above photo is, it is a glow stick in the dark twirled around with my camera set for slow shutter. Thanks for looking :-)

{The Challenge}:::Inspired by Words

Here is the challenge as detailed by Pat (twopea: patspix):
"There are 26 words/phrases, and the idea is to take a photo of what that word makes you think of, or seeing a perfect fit for one of the words, grabbing the opportunity. You don't have to list them in any particular order. Usually the word is included on the photo in PP so everyone knows what your vision of the word is.

It's not about perfect techniques. It's not about finishing the list. It's about having fun, seeing things differently, and thinking outside the box. It's about stretching our creative visualization and interpretation."
