Blog Your Blessings Sunday --Internet friends

If you care to join us acknowledging our blessings go here: Blue Panther

My interent friend, Jenny McB, told me about this SCRAPBLOG site. For some time now, Sandy Carlson has inspited me to write my own poetry but I never tried until this week when I had this new forum to use both photography and words called poetry. These two people are my blessing this week because now I have a way to show off my special photos and try my hand with poetry. Thank you Jenny for sharing this site url with me and to Sandy for inspiring me to try my hand at poetry that doesn't have to rhyme. I hope I can learn to use the widgets better to make my scrapblog pages even more appealing.

White Fashions

Leaves disappear
when Autumn shows
its face.

Nothing remains
but bare branches


dress each twig
a new outfit.

Well, I guess I did something wrong to link the scrapbook photo page graphic here but you can see it by clicking on the link. I am still new at this but you can see some in the previous posts below also. I have included the poem and photo here, exclusive of the scrapblog for those who don't want to take the time to go see it with scrapblogs "touches" there.

Happy Thanksgiving on Thursday to all my American internet friends!

I've been thinking of trying some haiku to go with photos. You inspire me, but will wait till I am home. We have reached AZ and the grands now.

Lovely photos... and a lovely piece of winter prose! I'm having trouble getting to the scrap blog even with the link, but I'll try tomorrow... All the best!

Neat shot! And it just belongs on your scrap page, so well done! Have a great week!

You are a blessing as well. Each time I visit, I find a reason to smile. I will be visiting the scrapbook site.

Great stuff here, friend. These images and your scrapblog work are amazing. And your poetry just makes my day. Thanks for this lovely post. It is a great surprise at the end of the day. You are an inspiration, too. You are a beautiful person.

Beautiful picture and I love the poem. You are a lady of many talents!

And you say you don't have snow? But, then this is perhaps the outfit from last year?

I enjoyed the pattern of dark branches with white snow on top. Not easy to get before all the snow has blown off (or rained off, which is most likely around here).

PS Thank you for the nice comments! I had to hurry and get as many pictures I could. We are getting heavy rain later on.

It looks great! And what a lovely poem, and blessing to go with :)

I'll take time to go on scrapblog when I'll get my new computer.This one is far too long each time I want to do something.But your poetry is still beautyful, I like it very much, and your pictures of snow are so great!
Being in France, I did not know about Thanksgiving, but I wish you a good one anyway!

What a beautiful photo and very nice poem as well, very fitting.
Happy Thanksgiving to you as well.

Thank you!! I just knew you would get a kick out of the site. It's so hard to choose between knitting and scrapblog right now for me. I love how you are using them. Your poems match the peacefulness of your pictures.

Have you checked out some of the tutorial scrapblogs? I found it helpful.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
