Tuesday Afternoon

Shhh - don't tell, but it is really Wednesday morning.  I was having such a lazy Tuesday that I ran out of time.  Here are some random things we've been enjoying lately.  It's the simple pleasures in life.
 Pretty markers in the crab pots, crab season is starting in Washington

 A metal deer with pitchfork antlers - this one won't eat your garden

 Tiny local lending libraries - these are popping up all over town and each one is decorated differently.  Neighbors share books and videos with each other.

 A flicker sitting on the ground in an apple orchard
 And a field of Queen Anne's Lace

All so lovely!! I really like the deer, especially the great long eyelashes!! The little library is a good idea too isn't it. Hope you had a good Wednesday. xx

I heard Maybelline makes a line for animals domestic and wild: Moobelline. This deer obviously likes it!

My kids in Oregon have those sidewalk libraries and, as a former librarian, I think it is a great idea. Nice to see that creative deer that isn't going to jump out and snarl traffic.

The rusty deer makes me smile!

Oh, how I LOVE that deer! (And I also love little free libraries, too!)

I lived in Washington State when I was in my very early 20s for 2 or 3 years. There are a great many things I miss about it; it is a beautiful place. But, we didn't live near the ocean and there was no real change of seasons, so I had to move back to my beloved seaside New England home. That deer is fantastic!!

You always find such interesting things when you're out with your camera (and I suppose you don't go anywhere without one, do you). I'm particularly taken with the neighborhood library - we have started one here, but it's a bin on the ground at our mailbox center. May have to do something about that!

Such a fun collection today!
Unusual texture collage in the crab pots.
I LOVE the deer!
The little libraries are the sweetest thing! I am aware of two of them nearby me.
