Unexpected Treasures

This is a section of a photograph that I took. I was focused on a little wren singing in the tree, but when I opened the photo in Photoshop, I loved this section of it. The splotchy leaves against the blurred background create a wonderful abstract composition, and I can't wait to use this in a collage --- or two or three.

This is Keaton, our last foster puppy, enjoying his new backyard. His forever mom just got her backyard fenced, so this is the first time that Keaton has been off leash in his new home. And Keaton, being Keaton, is rolling in the grass and having a great time. I love this photograph that she sent to me, because it is so "Keaton", and he is so full of pure pleasure!

Both of these photos are unexpected treasures in my day, and I appreciate both of them!

Keaton just being Keaton is a perfect title for that photo!

I'm with you on the stack of toys that don't get played with ... I've got a big bag I'm willing to mail off to a rescue who would want them.

Have a nice weekend, Katie from
