52 Week Project: Flickr Edition

Did I tell you guys that I’m also participating in a 52 Week Project with some of my flickr friends? Oh, how could I leave that out? I thought I told y’all everything! Every year since about 2012, I’ve been invited to join in either a 52 week or 365 project, and every year I sign up and quit after about 3 months. Most of the time it’s because I forget to take a picture and then I feel bad for missing day and just don’t bother anymore and sometimes it’s because my creative spark peters out. This year I’m happy to say that I’ve participated in TWO 52 week projects and I’ve only had one missed day! Yay!

Anyway, I decided to share the photos from this past month with you guys. If you’d like to see the previous months’ photos, click here. Enjoy!

Week 17: Architectural Interest

Week 17 Architectural Abstract {Living Outside the Stacks}

Taken downtown Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Can you tell what it is?

Week 16: Still Life

Week 16 Still Life {Living Outside the Stacks}

I absolutely adore the light coming in through the window. The only thing missing is a bit of steam coming from my mug.

Week 15: Airborne

Week 15 Airborne {Living Outside the Stacks}

If only you knew how many of those little flurries were inhaled by my daughter during the taking of this photo…

Week 14: Flowers

Week 14 Flowers {Living Outside the Stacks}

These have to be the most delicate flowers in the world. And, honest to goodness, I think they only bloom for about 72 hours. I’m glad I was able to capture them.

Week 13: Spring

Week 13 Spring {Living Outside the Stacks}

Spring in Missouri means 2 things: rain and tornadoes. Either way the sound of the wind chimes on the front porch is magical.

Have a lovely weekend!

Coffee Talk: Placenta Prints; Home Decor; Photo Challenge, Maybe {In the Cafe}

Coffee Talk {Living Outside the Stacks}Hi, and welcome to Coffee Talk. In case you’re new here, this is where I share some of the great and not~so~great stuff that I find on the web. Topics range from news stories that leave me scratchin’ my head to DIYs that I think are absolutely clever. And, who knows, there may even be a recipe thrown in here or there just for fun.

So grab a cup of coffee {or tea or whatever floats your boat} and let’s talk…

1. Are you pregnant? Do you dig original art? Well, now you can have your placenta turned into a Tree of Life Print. dry heaves Seriously, who looked at their placenta and thought this is totally craft worthy? thoughtful pause I assume the same folks who thought, I’m hungry and this bloody veiny mass looks nomtastic, maybe I’ll have a nibble. I guess having a kid for eighteen years isn’t enough of a souvenir anymore. I don’t get it…

2. Do you change out your home’s accessories with the seasons? Adding Placenta Prints does not count. I never have before but this year, I thought I’d switch things up and bring in more saturated colors. Maybe I’ll post some pictures. I’d be interested in seeing how you’ve decorated your space. Feel free to share your pictures with me on Facebook.

3. Did you know yesterday was National Coffee Day? I celebrated with 2 cups of coffee and an addition to my “I Heart Coffee” stream on flickr. I think next year I’m going to try to do 365 days of coffee. I’m being ambitious. I have yet to succeed at a daily posting. Have you ever tried a daily something? How’d you do with it?

What had you scratchin’ your head this past week?
