Ordinary Extraordinary Everyday Days 6 to 10‏

Here I am again joining up with Sally Russick for Ordinary Extraordinary Days.  I have days 6 through 10 for you today.  Here we go:

Day 6, Minimal:

 This is one of my Granny Great's (that's what we called her when we were little) wine glasses.  They are beautiful, and I think of her every time I use them.  And my thanks to Shari for giving me the idea for this picture, because I really didn't have a clue what to do with the prompt.

Day 7, Daily Chaos:

This is my alarm clock, and it's what starts my daily chaos every morning.  It's a sunrise alarm, which really helps me because I have a hard time waking up when it's dark outside.  I am not a morning person - ask anyone.

Day 8, Words:

This is my favorite picture of Brian and I from our wedding, in my favorite frame.  I love the saying on it.  This year will be 16 years for us in May.

 Day 9, Night Time Calm:

This is Wülfgang at the top, and George on the bottom.  Wülfgang will be 8 this year, George will be 17.    Wulfie is the best cuddling dog in the world.  George sleeps with him a lot, usually much closer than this.

Day 10, Outside:

The only editing I did to this picture was to crop a bit of the corner off, where the house was showing.  It was sleeting Tuesday night and I pointed the camera straight up and shot the picture with the flash on.  Pretty cool, the laser beams were completely unexpected.

And I'd like to show you a bonus picture, I was asked by a couple of people in the comments from Friday to share a picture of the completed necklace (repetitive pattern).  Here it is:

I am really happy with the way it turned out, and so was my friend.  Pattern is from Diane Fitzgerald's Shaped Beadwork.

Don't forget to come back on 2/16 for the last post in this series!

  1. What lovely pics and your necklace is really beautiful!

  2. Your pictures are lovely, the "outside" one is quite surreal and your finished necklace is amazing.

  3. Great photos, I had a hard time with a few of the prompts and minimal was one of them. The outdoor shot is pretty cool.

  4. Isn't it wonderful when puppies and kitties snuggle up together? Just love your furry friends. And that last photo is amazing - so dramatic. Your necklace turned out beautifully!

  5. Kim,
    Oh, the necklace turned out gorgeous!!
    All of the images are great and I love the way you interpreted the prompts, I want to kiss the fur babies noses in the nighttime calm photo and I'm truly amazed at how cool the outside photo looks! Had to laugh at the alarm clock it truly starts the chaos!

  6. Awesome pics - I especially love the last one!
    Your necklace is gorgeous!

  7. Kim, I especially like the glass and the falling snow photos. Good Job! Sylvia
