TWiP: Close to Home

This Week in Pictures, Week 33, 2021

Unlike Week 33s past, the 2021 Week 33 did not involve any beachy day trips, weekend getaways, or intercontinental travel. I barely left the house. On the plus side, I did manage to procure a bouquet of zinnias, which inspired some photo play and kept me plenty entertained.

TWiP: Window Box Chicken

This Week in Pictures, Week 31, 2021

I don’t know how the time manages to pass so quickly, but it always does. It’s August already. I feel like the summer just started, and yet we’re only a few short weeks away from pumpkin latte season. I’m starting to feel a little desperate to make sure I’ve availed myself of enough summer joy while it’s still here.

TWiP: Instant Gratification

This Week in Pictures, Week 30, 2021

It’s been a little over two years since I bought my first instant camera, and in that time, I’ve taken a few photos that I love, and a whole lot of photos that are kind of terrible. I don’t know what keeps me plunking down my hard-earned cash on yet another pack of film, or worse, a whole new camera to love/hate, but here we are. As of this week, I’ve got four instant cameras and two and a half photo albums full of evidence of my misadventures. I do think, though, that I may have finally turned a corner with my latest purchase…

TWiP: A Colorful Week

This Week in Pictures, Week 33, 2021

There was a lot of color in this week’s mosaic, between the flowers and the reading material 💗

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the little (and big!) moments I have captured all week. Some of these images are posted on Instagram, but many aren’t posted anywhere but here. Some days there may be no photos, and other days there may be multiples. It’s more laid back than the Project 365s of previous years. You can learn more here 🙂

Photos taken with 📷 (Canon EOS 80D) or 📱 (Samsung Galaxy S9).

Here’s a very short video, featuring 1.5-second moments from the week:


Story for Saturday


Lazy Sunday. I should be finishing this cardigan today. Yay!


Another zinnia photo shoot while they’re still vibrant and pretty!

Show and tell time! I finished my Timber Cardigan, and I think I may have made it a size too small. But I also think that I am stubbornly going to wear it anyway 😁


I’m getting so much mileage out of these zinnias 😍 I decided to pick up an old project I abandoned last September: my #blurredlinessweater. I’m on color number five. It’s slow going for me, because I am very used to working with worsted weight yarn, and this is all sock yarn. But I’m thinking, if I can stick with it long enough to finish the body, I’ll just give it short sleeves and be done with it. We’ll see how that goes. I may be back here next year saying the same exact thing, at this rate, LOL!


When the two things you splurged on recently arrive on the same day 🤩 #goodmailday


I was putting all of my instant photos in an album, but I think I might get more enjoyment out of them loose. I’m trying out some different ways of organizing them.

Thanks for helping me celebrate the week! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Instagram ♥

  1. Love the Timber Cardigan! May have to get one on some needles soon.

    1. I’m really happy with it, even though it’s a bit smaller than I wanted. I may make another one in a larger size 😁
