{this moment} a friday ritual

A Friday ritual inspired by Soulemama. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Vintage Thingie Thursday - Garden Gnomes

Last week on vacation I stopped at a junk store and found these adorable garden gnomes.  They are a hard plastic, there are no markings on them.  From looking on ebay, it looks like they were made in the 1950's.

Wickipedia tells me that gnomes started in Germany and they are men with beards, red hats and usually smoke a pipe.  The first ones were made of plaster and some still are.

I haven't decided where to put them in my gardens yet.

It was 108 degrees today so I didn't feel like trying them in different spots.

Have a super Vintage day.

Outdoor Wednesday - Boulder Garden, Buena Vista, Co.
Outdoor Wednesday is our chance to link up with other "outdoor enthusiasts" and share our photos. Check out all the great blogs with Susan.

Our grandchildren loved playing at this park in Buena Vista. 

In the same park there were walking trails next to the roaring Arkansas River. Just gorgeous.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Pink Saturday - Beautiful pink architecture

Had lunch with a few good friends today, I took some snapshots of the architecture of the Kansas City Plaza.  Most of the buildings are a beautiful light soft pink.  We ate at the Cheescake  Factory and I took a few shots of the ceiling and one of the columns.
