TWiP: Themeless

This Week in Pictures (TWiP) at Polka Dot Cottage

It’s the Week Without a Theme. My photos are kind of a mish-mosh. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. We kicked things off with a very enjoyable family party, and ended the week with another snowfall. And just as the last one was nearly all melted! The good news is that it stuck around for a few hours in the morning looking lovely, and by lunch time the sun had already done most of the work clearing the paths. That’s my favorite kind of snow fall!

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot with my DSLR for Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2016), plus some phone snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…

Saturday

365: 2016 30/366 – Family party today, and dueling cameras with Uncle Bill.

Sunday

365: 2016 31/366 – I’m not normally a big fan of working on a Sunday night, but I have a few little things I want to accomplish. After that I can be all about pajamas and PBS dramas πŸ™‚

Monday

365: 2016 32/366 – I didn’t plan it, but that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying how nicely my nails go with my paper straw πŸ˜€

Tuesday

365: 2016 33/366 – I’ve had one of those days where I accomplished a lot, but none of it was anything I actually wanted to do. I’m feeling a little cranky, so I’ve lit a candle, and I’m going to sit somewhere and just do what I want to do for the rest of the night!

Wednesday

365: 2016 34/365 – I’ll admit it has taken me scandalously long to take down the Christmas decorations, but in my defense, I was still using Tacky Santa’s red glow to light up the living room in the mornings while I got lunches ready and saw Aidan off to school. Now that the sun is rising at a more reasonable time, I can let Santa go back in the attic for a while πŸ™‚

Instagram: I knit this hat in one night last week. I like the subtle cables, but I think I’m going to use the second ball to make another with more obvious cabling. #pdc #pdcwintergreenhat #malabrigochunky

Thursday

365: 2016 35/365 – Bobble Head Luke is overseeing my clay work today. So far, he seems unimpressed.

Friday

Instagram: It’s so pretty when it’s new (and there’s not two feet of it…) πŸ˜‰β„

365: 2016 36/366 – I shoveled this morning, but the snow is piling back up on the front steps.

Instagram: What I do, in a nutshell: I take lumps of solid colored clay, work them into blocks of complex pattern, apply slices of that pattern to things like seam rippers, crochet hooks, and earrings, sand and buff the daylights out of those objects to make them shine, and finally ship the objects to happy customers πŸ˜ŠπŸ“¬ #pdc

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on FlickrΒ and/or Instagram.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!

  1. When I zoom in on the snowflakes on your steps- WOW!!! Love the mint hat.

    1. I know what you mean – I am still surprised that snowflakes actually look like that, LOL! Oh, and you should have seen me, kneeling on top of a folded towel on my cold, wet front steps, with my camera, trying different angles for that shot. I must have looked silly to anyone passing by πŸ™‚
