Who wouldn’t want to have a car like this?

If you want to join in here are a few ideas from Becky.

The theme for squares this month is ‘In the Pink‘ and the one rule as always is that your main photograph must be square. After that the world is your oyster, or should I say flamingo?! To help you get started here are some ideas you might want to consider;

  1. In the Pink’ – means perfect condition or in good health, so that could be human or not!
  2. Tickled Pink‘ – means delighted, so I’m thinking happy, fun and of course delighted. That could be you or the subject of your photograph.
  3. Pink – you can of course simply share anything that is coloured pink
  4. There is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?

Squares is a daily challenge, so your photographs can be from the archives or brand new. Don’t forget though to keep your photo square, and to pingback with #InthePink.

Toys

The word prompt from Franks Tuesday Photo Challenge: Toys

Here are a few of the toys from around my place. Some I have found in Op-shops or at markets or garage sales.

A cute little tip truck a Grandpa probably made for a child.

This tractor was perhaps a school project.

A wonderful home made train.

The pull along horse and rider that my girls played with. I can’t remember where it came from.

The metal truck was my truck from when I was a toddler. My Mum said that I used to sit on it was push myself around the house.

I hope you liked my toys

Teddy

The word prompt from Laura at Manic Mondays 3 Way Prompt: Confession

I wrote this poem, when I was about 17 years old, one day in an English class in High School. The teacher noticed me not paying attention, called me to the front of the class and made me read my poem to the class. I must add I went to an all boys high school.

Owl is sitting
in his tree.
Teddy is here,
cuddling me.
I love Teddy
and Teddy loves me.
And Owl is still sitting
in his tree

March Square – number 21

I am going to have to put a couple of the next posts as there is only four days left in #MarchSquares

Back inside for an old badge on a safe in the Ballina Art Gallery. A circle in a circle in a square unless you count the inside and outside……oh for gods sake……stop now

The only blocks left from an old wooden puzzle. Can you guess the theme?

Teddy Bears, Dolls Toys

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Teddy Bears Dolls Toys had me thinking what is the most interesting here.

The girls have left home but every Christmas I get out the Christmas toys who take their place guarding the box of Christmas presents.

Many people may know that I also have an elephant collection (see my blog) So it is only fitting that Humphrey gets involved in Christmas as well
