You Capture - Love Around Your Home

I couldn't possibly do a post of things I love around my home without including the baby koi that we've invested so much time and effort into. The fact that I don't really love them that much anymore doesn't mean that I don't love the idea that we finally had that spawning that I was anticipating with such fervor. I could go on and on but I won't. I'll just include some of them.

Then, there's this grouping that I look at often. Like Beth, the birds represent for me little ones that I'll meet someday. The pictures were taken in younger days and show our big, little family when it was just getting launched.
And how could I post about things I love around the house without including my husband's balls.

They represent innumerable vacations, all over the country to places where our sons were stationed. And believe me, they've been around. Although, I haven't started golfing yet, I accompanied the golfers and took scads of pictures of the men in my life having the time of their lives. If Beth, ever does a You Capture featuring golfing photos, I'll be all set.

For more pictures of household treasures, visit Beth at Ishouldbefoldinglaundry. You'll find lots of beautiful photos and an invitation to participate.

  9. I love the baby koi. I currently have a fish explosion going on in my sons aquarium. They won't stop reproducing. Silly fish.

    The photo of the photos is great! Thanks so much for sharing.

  11. I understand about not loving fish. It's so sad that they don't hug back... and then they go all floaty in the water after you try to hug them. I just don't get it.... ;)
    Great story behind the balls.

  13. I love the fish! And I definitely think that if Beth did a golf theme one week, it would make things very interesting. :)
