  7. Hello Carol, Your photos are well done and your pup is so cute. We spent a month in Arcadia just outside of the park actually. We loved the beauty of everything we saw. I'm sure Cape Ann is lovely as well.

  19. Love your b&w, like it has secrets, has a story to tell... but has no voice.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think that shed looks a fine source of pictures! I think that splinters are natures way of reminding us that the small stuff matters too!

  40. :) Hi Artmuse Dog and Carol, long time since I've visited. Doing it for the letter "O" ~~ I love those trikes, are they under your control? We have our daughters in the 'pile' in our garage. Along with her motorcycle, two bikes, and other large toys. The smaller ones are in the attic. We get those down one or two at a time as her daughter grows.
