Weekly Word Challenge is hosted by the very funny Tink over at Pickled Beef - check out her site for photos and details on how to join in the fun. This weeks challenge words are Domestic & Foreign, I had loads of fun gathering these photos.
My Mom was a rather talented artist and so, I chose one of her paintings for domestic. Sadly she was called away to paint sunsets in 1993.
My parents were fortunate enough to be able to do a fair amount of traveling in their lives. This next piece is artwork from Russia from before the Iron Curtain rusted. The photo following is the back label of this work. Too bad it didn't come out very well, it is inlaid woods and really very intricate.
This covers both categories, it is my domestic (at least I think so) table, sporting a runner that the folks picked up in Sweden. As a bonus, it shows my lack of domestic skills!
These next shots, I, um, ahem... "borrowed".
We can't give her away!
Foreign & Domestic
I think I might be getting better with this camera phone! I think my next challenge is to see if I can't get them into a slide show like some of the other bloggers use. I will update later on next weeks words.
P.S. Just had a look and I think I spoke to soon, they are still kind of blurry. More practice I guess.
