A Horse and A Woman



This is an image I like. Unfortunately, I don't know the source or where I found it (anyone have any info?). Great composition.  And what's going on? That's a woman, right?

For you cats that are interested in the American Revolution, this is from the mountvernon.org site (the home of George Washington). It commemorates a battle  in Pennsylvania,which took place on July 3, 1754, was an early battle of the French and Indian War. It resulted in the surrender of British colonial forces under Colonel George Washington, to the French and Indians, under Louis Coulon de Villiers. Washington's great moments were yet to come.

I know its Spring, but still....



I bought this on Ebay and wanted to post it. I remember getting one each Christmas at my after school religion class in Queens, New York. Looking at the ones below, it looks like mine was the entry level model. The others are more deluxe, with more figures. In once case there are palm trees instead of winter firs, which seems appropriate for Bethlehem, except for the snow flakes on the roof. Makes a lot of sense.

Rebellious Soldiers



Having just finished David McCollough's 1776, I was inspired to post these American Revolution toy soldiers. Some are metal (Britain) and the rest are vintage plastic.

Brighton by Marzia

She writes a blog to show the routines and inspirations of her daily life. As she explains "I really want for this blog is simply to be able to express myself fully, letting you in on the kind of stuff that usually isn’t shown on camera.
