Scavenger Hunt...

...& song-ography

Over at Kathy's 
she's serving up song titles once a week, for anyone who wants to join & interpret them.
This week, it's Bill Wither's, "Lean on Me."
 I knew I was gonna have to use this...an oldie but a goodie...both the song AND the photo.
It was Austin's 13th birthday, I was feeling mushy & gushy inside as he sprouted past me that year, was becoming more independent, needing me less and less. I wanted to freeze this moment in time. Remember Austin, your mama is ALWAYS here for you...no matter what.

I also decided to play over at Ashley's
for the Scavenger Hunt.
Here's what I came up with this week:

"Guess what it is?"
Awwww, You'll have to scroll down to the end and see!


Music
I grabbed my artist doll and decided it would fun to play with him. 
Reminds me of a musical play bill.

Wednesday
Take a photo on Wednesday...
...that was easy
Is it possible to have a love affair with a newly acquired antique typewriter?
Just askin'



Body Part
I could go all cheater pants on ya for this one because I originally was going to use this as another prompt...

...Mirror Image
But I'll save my cheater pants card for when I might actually need it! 
I'd make a terrible weather forecaster having to look at t.v. monitors and stand in front of a green screen but do the opposite thing. This shot was hard enough and I STILL have a roving eye!
I'm SO not designed for technical stuff!

So what was that shot above you ask?


Meshell, the gal that sold me the typewriter threw in a tin ribbon case...
(swoon)

Phew...that was fun. Now I'm gonna head over to the hunt myself & check out all the other great interpretations.
Happy (weekend) Snapping!

  1. Isn't it nice when your kids become people who YOU can lean on in certain situations? One of the many perks of raising children. But Shhhhh! I sure do miss them having to lean on ME all the time :). Thanks for linking up at Song-ography Kelly !

  3. A very tender moment in time with your son. Hopefully as he grows older there will still be those moments when you need each other to "lean on".

    Great job on the hunt. Cool looking antique typewriter.
    Loved your fun music shot and your body part shot was very sweet.

  6. My son is turning 13 soon, and just jumped right over me in height this summer. It's kinda crazy. That is a lovely shot of you two! And I love the light and dreamy processing of all your pictures!

  8. You did a spectacular job on all of these. Your choice for Lean On Me is really registering with me this morning having come down stairs to find a Birthday note from my baby boy (17) letting me know that he was sorry he would be out most of my birthday, but he made me a lot of Mac & Cheese to re-heat for later because it is the best thing he knows how to make; and how much he loves me - especially when I laugh at my own jokes; and how much he appreciates me being his rock. Oh God yes, your first picture does more than sing to me this morning.

    PS - that typewriter is 'da bomb!' and if I were not filled to the gills with "stuff", I would drag my butt to the flea market today to hunt for an old camera or typewriter to photograph. Your selfies are especially nice too.

  11. I remember the moment when both of my sons were looking down at me ...felt sad and very proud at the same time! I still have my little daughter (15 ) at home and that is lovely, many special moments.

  18. lovely photos!
    The artist doll photo is wonderful!
    Nostalgically speaking, the typewriter is great! But then I had to actually use such for writing papers.
