Blooms on blue

Blooms on blue
I own a top in a beautiful blue color, with small white flowers and leaves embroidered on it. I’ve always loved this top, but it’s only when I clicked a macro of it for this SL-Week theme (Blue) that I noticed that the fabric’s texture looks very much like knitting! Macros just show so much more of the world, don’t they — all the stuff that we never usually notice. Because I too knit, my love for the top has now doubled. 😉

The title ‘Blooms on a bed of blue’ passed through my mind for this post, but that’d be way too much alliteration, right? 😛

Punched ticket

Ticket
A punched ticket. I always used to wonder if I could reuse a ticket if I preserved it for a month. 😀 Well, the tickets did have other components, like the day of the week. But there has to be a day that matches all punched parts on an old ticket, right? (Is this how one begins hoarding tickets? 😉 )

Anyway, these tickets might soon belong only in nostalgic memories, since they’re slowly being replaced by electronic ones.

I wish this picture was that of a real ticket, but there wasn’t one at hand. I used one of my sister’s handy patterned papers instead — she uses the papers for her cardmaking hobby..

What’s inside?

Container
It’s almost themed-MM time again, and this month, Leanne has given us the word ‘Closed’. For this theme, I clicked a macro shot of this small container that lies in my cupboard. Extremely glittery and adorned all around with glassy / plasticky trinkets, my mom received this along with a gift that is usually given to guests at some kinds of religious ceremonies in India.

Wonder what’s inside?

It contains kumkuma (kumkum), a powder that is applied on the forehead. Because the container catches the light and glitters when I open my cupboard, I end up using the powder now and then. Maybe that was my mom’s intention when she placed this garish piece in my room. 🙂

Hey little birdie!

A Steller's Jay

A Steller’s Jay that I saw while on a vacation at Oregon, USA. It slightly turned its head right at the moment I clicked it, and its crest is almost hidden as a result. I just love the blue on it!

Though I say ‘little birdie’, this jay is not so little — it is almost as big as a crow…

For SL-Week: DoF.
