creative sparks · Saturday Snapshot




Welcome to our regular feature, Saturday Snapshot, our opportunity to showcase photos we or friends and family have captured.  The event is now hosted by West Metro Mommy.

Today I’m featuring moments with Noah…and my own special morning in my newly painted patio.


Noah’s special creation:

A Creation

Noah’s Band Award – (He plays the trombone):


Noah, the Trombone Player

Bookworm Noah:


Little Bookworm


And….this morning, I was happily reading and having breakfast on my newly fenced and painted patio.  Last week, they built the new fence, and this week they painted it.










  1. What sweet photos of your grandson. I know you enjoy spending time with him.
    Your patio is beautiful too. It looks like a comfy place to have breakfast and read a good book — like Interior Designs!


    1. Oh, thanks, Sandra….it took a while to get used to this tiny patio, as I’d had a nice big deck in my home in the foothills. But then I recall that now I have time to read and do fun things…and there I had much to do to maintain that home!

      A shift in perspective does it, right?

      Glad you could stop by, and enjoy your weekend (and Interior Designs!).


  2. Looks like Noah was fun to spend time with. Your patio is charming! What a lovely place for a bite and a book.


  3. We always here that boys don’t read enough, how wonderful that Noah is a reader. And a baker and musician! Nice to have your new reading spot too.


  4. Great Photos! I admire anyone who can play the trombone. I had enough problems remembering which valves to press on the trumpet, let alone having to do the extra steps that you do with the trombone!

  5. How great to see your special moments with Noah. I love your new breakfast spot. It looks so cozy. I’m putting out croissants to have in the morning myself.


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
