This is on my mind ...

I am taking the lead from Soulemama here and doing a Friday photo feature. I hope she doesn't mind. This will allow us all to connect via a simple photo of the week, featured on our blogs, for all to see. Our previously unpublished photos will show something at home that we're thinking about. It can be something already done but still on your mind, something you're about to do and you're working out how to do it, or a place at home where you've spent a lot of time during the past week. It opens the door to us sharing our lives with these photos and, after my post yesterday, gives us all a new way to discover each other, and maybe form new friendships.

To take part in this, all you have to do is post a photo of something on your mind that reflects the guidelines above. Please write a short caption to explain your photo. When your post is published, come back here and add a comment, with a link to your blog photo. We will all be able to follow the breadcrumbs in the woods that lead to each new photo. Who know where these trails will lead us. You should add "This is on my mind. ..." then tell us about the photo, to identify you're part of this.

This is on my mind...

I'm taking photos for my book and need a photo of a cleaning goods gift basket. I have the basket and the homemade cleaning goods but I need to add some pretty little additions to make the basket really special. I need ribbons and cellophane! And maybe more dishcloths. :- )

  7. I have been thiking about how to create a simple (or simpler) more self sufficient lifestyle, and have been taking my first steps at gardening using potted herbs. You can see my blog entry about this at http://freekristy.blogspot.com/
    of I think you can click on my name. new to blogging and havent quite worked it all out yet! Thanks Rhonda for such a great blog, I am really enjoying it.

  8. Kristy, is there a single photo that sums up what is on your mind. You can add a caption to it. If we all add photos, most readers will be able to visit every blog who shares. With a blog post, it takes more time and less blogs will be visited. I understand if you have no time to do it, but if you can, it would make it simpler. Thanks love.

  10. Hi Rhonda, Sorry I thought the link to by blog post & picture of my herbs was what you were asking for. Im not sure how to add a picture to the comments here.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hi Kristy, we want a photo with just a caption to explain the photo. No blog post. You can't post photos to the comments. Leave it for now, love. When we do it next Friday, remember it's just the photo with a caption. Thanks for being part of this.

  33. I don't have a blog; but we're really trying to make our house a home (and a lot of the things we're putting into it are recycled, and sourced from auction websites). Rhonda, how about showing some pictures of your homemade soap, particularly the rose shaped ones,intermingled with some colourful flower petals?? Take care, Bev :)

  34. I'm moving this here for Catherine. She posted her comment with the wrong post.

    I love this idea! I'm moving to Queensland in about a month, and trying to learn as much as I can about starting a fruit/veggie garden in such a new climate... I'm from Canada. Your blog is providing some great tips - I'll be sure to keep following. Thanks!
