Bumper Stickers

YEA!!!


Today, I was sitting at a red light, and right in front of me on the back window of an SUV (clearly a hauling vehicle) was one of my bumper stickers!  There is nothing warmer than seeing someone with a kindred spirit...my kindred spirit at that.  

Love sharing the love!

The Color Run!

I just recently had the privilege of taking my little friend and her friend to the Atlanta Color Run!  My role was mainly to be the photographer and provide transportation (for we left at 4:30am).  Oddly, I expected nothing but enjoyment watching my girls have fun...although, that was certainly a by-product of the day....I loved it!

Approximately 8,000 people, all shapes, sizes, ages and skill levels of athletes were in attendance.  Each was dressed in a white shirt, number and a huge spirit to enjoy a 5k run that had no timer, no winner and lots of powder color packets.  Who knew running a race with a pile of unknown people and  running through pockets of color tunnels fogging the sky and discoloring everything you had on...including your skin and hair...could be so fun...
and absolutely beautiful?


After completion of the race everyone gathers in waves, huddle to the middle of the festival area and with a simple count down, hurl their color packets into the air. Pictures do not do it visual justice.  The array of color sprayed into the air like an atomic explosion.  Absolutely beautiful!

And yes, tutus were a fashion must.




This is what happens if you landed in the middle of the mosh pit during the count down.  

Plus, the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta was the benefactor of all this fun.

As we all know....COLOR is beautiful....in all forms!

Pin Cushion!

Velveteen Green Tomato!

This precious little pin cushion was found at a recent estate sale....with the pins.  Love the clear, square acrylic hat pins!  And, speaking of a pin cushion that is exactly how I have felt lately.  A large human mass being stuck in so many ways...by so many different people...and struggling to stay alive.  Whew...March was a painful month.  But, it is now over!  I'm moving on....I hope to have the creative juices back on the road to recovery.

Let's go April!  Bring less sticks!
