#16 - SHOES

#16 - SHOES, originally uploaded by LauraBelle'.

I am sure I'm not the only one who has a place where they keep things from an event that meant something special to them ... the shoes are from my Grandson Skyler's baby shower cake. He will be 6 yrs. old this June 11th, one day after his Mom turns 31. There's something else in there my favorite niece may notice too!

After reading the prompt, I saw round things everywhere! So I grabbed my camera but had to make a 'pitt-stop' first ... spyed this, one of my favorite items in my bathroom, and figured, hey! why not?!

#14 - FLOWERS , originally uploaded by LauraBelle'.

These actually came on Saturday from my son Tony and his family for me for Mothers Day. The thing is, on Saturday, they were all buds! Each day they bloom, changing the view entirely ... this picture doesn't capture the joy in my heart nor the beauty of the love I received from the one who sent them ...

These two guys are actually like ashtrays! I saw one similiar to the blue fellow on the Antiques Roadshow awhile back and he was valued at $35 to $50. The cigarette sits on the bottom lip, and the smoke would 'billow' out the holes in the ears! These were given to me from my Mom ...

So I didn't get a chance to get over to our friends house to take the picture myself of the bike my husband got our daughter for her upcoming birthday!

He was listening to an auction on the radio while working in his 'shop' and ended up bidding on this bike, an Electra Rat Fink "Pink" Chopper Bicycle, and he won it for $300.00!! These bikes are generally $599.00 and up!

Soooo, it's at our friends house til Audrey's birthday, but how much do ya wanna bet that Bill won't be able to wait that long to give it to her?! By the way, her birthday is July 29th and she'll be 12. *smiles*
