Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I suddenly remembered I had nothing prepared and the weather outside meant wandering around with my camera was out of the question.
So I wandered around inside with the camera, and here's what I found:
the reflection on the ceiling from the light globe inside the shade; looks a bit space shippy doesn't it?
for those who haven't seen these before, my dragon ornaments, one,
some of the stuff that hangs around in my kitchen
Harry Hare Jnr, sitting up high, keeping watch over us. He's ditched his summer bow tie in favour of a warm winter scarf.
my butterfly lamp from the inside
stuff on a shelf; marbles in a crystal decanter, yellow flower paperweight, gold buddha snowglobe, vanilla scented candle, and a tiny traction train: hold it on the floor, pull it backwards, then let go and watch it zoom across the floor.
Mavis, my kitchen witch. The tag reads:
"My name is Mavis
And I am coming to live with you
You may not like me at first
But your guests surely will
As I'll help you cook lots of
And I prevent you from burning the stew
Just hang me near the oven
And I'll promise to look after you."
The other side reads:
"I am an Aussie Kitchen Witch
Riding my broom,
love and affection
I'll bring to this room
Pot boiling over area
A thing of the past
With my kind of magic
Good fortune will last
I'll keep burnt food & bad coffee away
For I'm the GOOD LUCK KITCHEN WITCH
and I'm here to stay!"
my minions mug; you may remember this as a Whimsical Wednesday entry and I stated then I would have this on a mug, and here it is.
"Just a woman?
Oh hell no!
I am a big cup of wonderful,
covered in awesome sauce,
with a splash of bitch and a dash of crazy.
You be sure to remember that!"
I had the image put on both sides, so I can see it whichever way the mug is standing/hanging.
the crinkly edges of my breakfast pancakes
Ricky Rooster. I'm told that having a rooster in the kitchen is lucky, so of course I have one.
Serenity, the Firefly series spaceship from the TV series Firefly. She's about 15cm long and the silver cord you see there is so I can hang her from the ceiling. As you can see, I haven't got around to doing that yet.
Last, but by no means least, Angel, sleeping, cosied up to Harvey Banana, who usually sits on my bed.
