My life is to make everything around me beautiful.

Another Rant

I see a lot of women with copyrights on their photos. I'm not at all territorial about my photos. If you want to use any of them, even my personal ones, you have my permission. It's a form of flattery. I wouldn't put them out in the public domain if I didn't want them looked at and used. As I said, I'm not territorial. But...

I see some out there from other sites—and I'm talking graphics sites here—and women/bloggers are putting their "copyright" on them. They cannot be your copyright if you get them from a graphics site to use and put your name on them! How ridiculous can you be? And then you complain about someone taking your photos to show how beautiful your products are??? Puhleeeeze! How ridiculous can it get? Be flattered that someone considers them beautiful enough to use them. Rant over. ;-)

Another cottage in Carmel. I think this is a bakery.

Lovely textured and colored window probably in France or Italy.

Urn holding a gorgeous plant.

A sweet cozy outdoor room.

When I saw this little lace dress with pink ribbons on it, I immediately thought of a blessing dress for a little girl.

I would love to have this to display in my home. It just touches my heart in a number of ways.

A lady finger dessert with roses thrown in. Yuuummm.

Just a little bling thrown in for ya, chicks. :-)

A mailbox? Cute, whatever it is.

Every time I see baskets like this I want some, but I know I'll never get them.

Another upscale sun room not many of us can afford. I can appreciate it though; it's gorgeous.

I do love these chippy old boxes for putting on patios and porches though.

I think a pink plastic bucket like this would be just fine for a bouquet of roses.

While I wouldn't want to live here, I'd sure love to visit and have lunch on that dock. That would be fun.

Now, have a cupcake and enjoy your own life!


  1. Many Thanksgiving Blessings to you and Love Bunny..Hugs and love Gloria

  2. I am in Agreement with your observation. And I'm Loving the Images you have Shared today... this Community here in the Land of Blog can provide so much Inspiration and Delight because of the Sharing of so much Beauty and Talent. Not to mention give wonderful Exposure to those Creative Souls, Vendors and Artists that otherwise we might never discover or be able to tell others about. Like you, I personally find it a form of flattery. I've yet to meet anyone who 'created the wheel' so to speak... even the Greatest Talents were Inspired by Something or Someone that was already in Creation and Authored by THE Creator Himself. Good Post for Reflection upon that Truth.

    Happy Thanksgiving from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

  3. While I agree that I have no copyright claim to photos taken from another site, I am a bit possessive about photos I take myself with my own camera. Copyrighting these photos won't stop everyone from taking them, but it may give pause to some. People who "steal" someone else's hard work and claim it for their own really bug me. Ask and I'm happy to share as long as credit is given where credit is due.

  4. that sunroom is simply beautiful!!!! I don't often wish I had something different, but I do wish I had that.

    Happy Thanksgiving!!!!


  5. I couldn't agree with you more on bloggers seeming they own public posting. Give me a break! If it's out there in blogland, your open territory. If you don't like it, don't put up a blog.
    Anyways, I love all of your photos today. Hope you have a nice Thanksgiving. It's my favorite holiday. A celebration for our freedom. And we don't have to buys gifts, just enjoy eachothers company. Blessings Paula
