DSC01560I love my new pouch!

I bought it from this Etsy seller.

Cute, no?

It makes me smile!  How about you?




I have also been tagged, twice so I am it it. 

I was ‘tagged’ last week by Jan.  You have to go to your photo album on your PC, pick the 6th album then the 6th photo and Blog it ! So this is mine………



It is an angel headstone in Blandford Cemetery in Petersburg, VA.  It is a very big part of the civil war and home of Blandford church.  All of the windows in the church were designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and when the sun hits them they are awesome.  There is one for each of the southern states in the civil war. 

There is also a life size statue on a headstone of a man’s wife.  It is said that the likeness on the face is his wife’s.  What a testament to that love affair. 

I love to take photos in black and white.  You see the image instead of getting lost in the colors. 

Apparently, I now have to tag five other people and ask them to do the same! 

So I am tagging Mary Ann, Vallen, Loralynn, Kiva, and Suzy.
