Weekly Winners Sunday 4/13/08

I've already waxed poetic earlier this week about how true it is when I say that Sunday really is my favorite blog day of the week because of Weekly Winners, thanks to Lotus.

Click for larger images (because they do look better full-sized) or take a peek at the entire album at once and/or watch as a slideshow at this link.

A Walk in the Park Saturday, April 12


If only I could capture the scent of the blossoms and make
these scratch and sniff photos. See the bees in the first and last?

  3. Damn Maggie, you must be a hell of a good cook....Your food always looks great! What I wouldn't give for a home cooked plate of your pasta with clam suace! The blooming plants in Oregon look beautiful. One day I hope to get there. I keep thinking about doing the Weekly Winners Blog....I can't seem to get committed to anything except just plain old blogging. Maybe I will add a picture that adds to it but nothing too creative. Yours is so creative it makes me want to work harder at this blogging thing. One day I will have the time and or motivation.
    Peace,
    Diva

  7. You should take that mannequin home. Maybe dress it up like Tom and set it near the bed to keep bad kitty from peeing on it.

  17. I LOVE hats. I so wish they didn't perform permanent hair flattening on the days I wear them. I would wear them more often.

    I'm going to have to try some of your recipes. I've gotten some winners from Tasina, and now I can tell that you've got the same gift for picking out good ones.

    Great pictures. Someday I'm going to have to ask you (or Tasina for that matter) to explain to me how to make Blogger willing to consistently make my photos enlargeable. Right now it's hit or miss, and it drives me bats.

  18. Wow! Those were great shots! You've made me terribly hungry, though. All I have to eat are baby cheeks.

    Thanks for dropping by! Please send spring flowers our way!

  23. Wow! From start to finish, my mouth was watering :) That mannequin would have scared me to death too!
