TWiP: Pink Trees are Back

This Week in Pictures, Week 17, 2019

I have very much enjoyed the flowering trees this week, both at home, and at work. I have spent my commute daydreaming about starting a photographic blossom collection, pulling over on the side of the road and capturing every variety of pink tree between my house and the office.

I haven’t done it yet, because I can’t quite get over the feeling that I may be trespassing into someone’s personal space, even if I stay on the road, and zoom in from afar. But someday, maybe I will.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the microblogging I’ve done on Instagram all week. This includes photos I shot for Project 365 and any other extra images I may have posted.

Photos taken with 📷 (Canon EOS 80D) or 📱 (Samsung Galaxy S7).

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


I want to make something, but I’m paralyzed by indecision. Namely: what should I make and what colors should I use, and where will I put it when it’s done? You know, minor stuff like that 🤣

We have a bit of a mug storage problem, because nearly every time I design a new one for my Zazzle shop, I want to buy it for myself. I have just enough self control to wait for 50% off sales, but that’s about it. Luckily today I remembered this old mug stand my grandfather made (I think – I have to ask my Mom). It’s been (literally) collecting dust on top of the fridge for many years. I took it down, cleaned it up, and now I can display whatever six mugs I feel like displaying while the others stay in the closet. As you can see, I’m feeling a pink-and-green vibe today. Very springlike!

It’s been a nice weekend. Colorful, springy, relaxing…

I love these purple trees. And all of the other flowering trees around my office building. I think I’m going to have to bring in my fancy camera tomorrow for some lunch hour photography.

It’s a beautiful day for taking pictures of flowering trees in the parking lot ♥

Story for Tuesday


Took a short walk through the neighborhood with my husband tonight. I wish I’d brought my nice camera – there were so many flowering trees to capture.

Story for Wednesday

Lady Gray tea, and beachy feels tonight. I bought this customized little tray for myself – it features a photo I took in Ocean City a few years ago. And I just crocheted another Blooming Coaster, this time in just one color, to absorb the inevitable coffee and tea dribbles this tray will see.

I am not even thirsty. I just wanted an excuse to carry something around in my new little tray 🙂

I didn’t make it to Clayathon 2019, but I am wearing the t-shirt anyway 😀
