CREATIVE SPARKS: SATURDAY SNAPSHOT FEATURING A BIRTHDAY & SOME BOOKISH THINGS — JAN. 5

163

Welcome to another creative opportunity to showcase photos, via our weekly Saturday Snapshot event, hosted by Alyce, At Home With Books.

This week’s Saturday Snapshot post is featuring the birthday of my youngest grandson, who is 10 today (Jan. 5); and I’m also celebrating all things bookish.

First, here are a couple of shots of Noah putting together a jigsaw puzzle and enjoying himself.

Next week, I should have some photos of his actual birthday party.

And now for a peek into my “bookish” house.Β  An office nook, on the left; a corner of my bedroom, in the center; and on the right – one of the bookshelves in my office.

And don’t forget to notice the bookshelf in the photos with Noah!

Now let’s have a look at your world in snapshots!

    • He especially loves this particular puzzle, as years ago, he put a similar one (fewer pieces) together with his Uncle Craig, who was home visiting from Europe. He still mentions how Uncle Craig helped him and also made popcorn.

      Don’t you love those kinds of memories?

      Thanks for visiting, Kathy.

    • Yes, and I have many other shelves, too, Staci! I’ve added a stack of books in that office nook that I call the Reading Room. I do giveaways at the beginning of each month. Check it out at Curl up and Read.

      Puzzles are fun, but I’m not as good at them as Noah and my son Craig. Thanks for stopping by.

    • Oh, yes, Leslie…I have lots of birdhouses here and there, inside and one outside. That particular birdhouse is shaped like a shoe as in: There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe….

      Thanks for stopping by, and you have a great eye for detail!

  1. Lovely home. I love jigsaw puzzles too but with cats in the house I haven’t wanted to leave out for too long, again. They know they aren’t supposed to be on the table!

    Thanks for stopping by, it was a cute notebook. I found it as Bed, Bath and Beyond

    • Thanks! And I have had cats at various points over the years. As cute as they are, I have no patience for how they “intrude” on things I want to do…lol

      I do love Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Thanks for visiting, Gina.

    • Usually he does have his nose in video games, but he lost the use of them for awhile because of something he did. He hardly ever does anything wrong, and I thought his mother’s “punishment” was excessive, but then again, he has amused himself with other things in its absence. Like puzzles and books.

      Yes, I love my books that are everywhere in my home. Thanks for visiting, Fran.

    • Oh, I do have a lot of books, Paulita, and the shelves you see in the snapshots above are just a sample.

      Thanks for visiting my blog; I do enjoy Noah, who is the youngest. The others are all teens! Enjoyable, too, but in a different way.

  2. What a handsome young man! I bet he has a wonderful time at your house. It looks amazing! Puzzles and books are two of my favorite things, and then you have so many other fun things as well! Happy New Year and I hope Noah had a very happy birthday!

    • Thanks, Debbie….I think so. It’s hard to believe it’s been ten years since his birth. I’ll never forget that day, as I was at the hospital with my daughter, her husband, his parents, etc. A party!

      Glad you could stop by, and I’ll be sending Noah your wishes.

    • Yes, Carol, it definitely comes in handy; at Christmas, it held one of the Christmas trees. But I like it best for projects or lunches for the kids. Thanks for stopping by…and my bookshelves shown here are just a sample…lol
