12 Days of (Philly) Christmas

Since I have quite a few “local” Philly area readers, I thought you all might enjoy this.  I received this on a Christmas card last year. 
This is a scan of the card, the artist is David Price, and the name of the artwork is Philadelphia Christmas (2004)

Have a Fa La La La Day!

DSLR – Day 159 – Urban Reflections

Today was another HOT day, and we did not go anywhere or do anything interesting. I did not take any photos today, but I did spend the majority of my day, uploading, editing and even scanning pictures.

Instead, I will share two more photos from Friday’s trip to Philadelphia. I really love these!

Quotable Sunday – Benjamin Franklin

Mothers Day Gift Ideas

Quotable Sunday is hosted by Toni, over at A Daily Dose of Toni (I just realized she’s a Big Brother fan too!) Quotes are great, and here is a place to share our favorites every week. I have fun picking a topic relevant to my life during the week!

Tara and I visited the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia on Friday, and in various places they had some of his most famous quotes, so I thought that would be a good topic for this week’s Quotable Sunday!

A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.

A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle.

Absence sharpens love, presence strengthens it.

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

At twenty years of age the will reigns; at thirty, the wit; and at forty, the judgment.

Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy. (This one is for Stacy!)

Have a great day!

Martha

Mellow Yellow Monday goes to Philly

MellowYellowMondayBadge
I was looking through some photos that Tara (my 12 year old) had taken and as I scanned the folder, lots of yellow POPPED out at me, so I thought I would share some of her “work” this Mellow Yellow Monday. Sorry if I shared to many!

What’s more MELLOW than a PEACE SIGN. This in a Macy’s Store window in Center City Philly, peace signs and maxi dresses, they are really revisiting the 70’s, and commemorating the 40th anniversary of Woodstock. (I took a little creative license and POPPED the yellow with Photoshop.

Philly Car Share – read about it here. Interesting concept!

I’m pretty sure she took this photo for me – STARBUCKS – but I’m popping the traffic light!

I like many things about this photo, she did a pretty good job as we were moving (in a horse drawn carriage).

Alex’s Lemonade stands were all around the city that day. If you don’t know about Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer check it out.

And one last photo, with a flashback to the 70s…. Smiley face on an oil tank in our town of Lansdale.
