My kitchen smells like lilacs.

7861 my kitchen smells like lilacs 

Lilacs are something that I spent many adult years without, but now that I have a big, flowery lilac bush in my backyard, it makes me wonder why.  Why did I wait so long to have my own!  My mother-in-law bought this one for me several years ago, and this is the first year that it's been full of flowers.  They smell so fresh, like spring, like childhood, like mothers, like grandmothers.  Like a happy home.

6238 pink and green 

I have finally stepped out into the 112 in 2012 challenge that I've been meaning to start for, oh, three plus months.  I know I've got several pictures that would qualify as something on the list, i.e. narrow depth of field, which I shoot almost every week, but I just haven't had the time to sit down to go through my pictures because I've been working on yarn pictures for Windy Valley! Several people have commented on my new header (thank you), and you can see my handiwork on their Peruvian Pima Cotton page.  Click on any ball of yarn to see the whole picture.  I've still got several more sets to finish editing and / or send to the webmaster, but I was just struck with the inspiration to get started on the 112 today.  I had fun arranging all my pretty little things for #30 pink and green.  One thing I love about this group is that there is a discussion thread for each item so you can see them all together, like this.

More of my own pink-and-green from today:
