happiness is bench monday and some baking

who knew monday could be so dang cool?  i did not.  gone are the monday blues.  helloooo bench monday
these make me ridiculously happy.

i have always loved feet shots for some reason, and no i do not have a foot fetish!  you would really believe me if you ever saw my feet up close and in person.... TRAIN WRECK!   

bench monday~ the rules :
  • "Stand on a bench. Make sure it's Monday. Wear something pretty.
  • PS. If you have no bench, improvise. :)
  • PPS. Only pictures taken and added to the group on the day called Monday will be accepted.
  • PPPS. Extra points for live props. double points for chickens." 

this was my shot today.  i was baking scrumptious scones from molly's book, a homemade life. those are mine fresh from the oven on the left, oh my!!!    as soon as they were done, i hopped up on my "bench"  (loosely translated) with my props at the ready.  
i have not acquired any chickens..... yet
and i need to work on the "pretty" too.  maybe next week a skirt?   oh but really does anyone need to see my winter legs?  they are almost as bad as my feet.  perhaps i'll stick to my jeans and work on prettier shoes or socks!  lol
i love seeing everyones improvised benches, great outfits, props (some little people, pets, and yes chickens) , & fab shoes.  
so what are you doing next monday?  i say you grab yourself a bench/chair/radiator/dresser/windowsill and join the fun. 
it really is fun!

see, I love that you wore chucks (because I'm a chucks girl too). These shots are so creative and it's fun to see how everyone interprets the rules.

Bench Monday really has made mondays more fun. It's really giving me a boost to do something creative with my selfies here in the last few months of 365. I am already looking forward to the next one.

Hellooooo fellow Kristin! Yes, Dana is beautiful for sure...and an amazing neighbor. She's 42....shhhh. I hope I look that good when I'm 42. I heard you guys were e-mailing today. Love the internet! So, the TTV. Well I'm a cheater. If you give me an e-mail address, I'll e-mail you the two TTV files I use with instruction of how I do it. SUPER easy. So glad you like the word project. It's been fun. By the way, I think we may have the same glasses. Those are my glasses in the "clarity" pic. Oh, and we have the same converse and same haircut. Are you sure we're not related?!! Talk to you soon!

Oh my gosh...just got finished looking at your 2girls 2 clicks site. Such a great idea! And of course, we have the same dog. Mine is named Presta and she is all chocolate, but she's half black lab and half german short hair pointer.

The craziness continues....
