While I contemplate how on earth my baby boy is a quarter of a century old, let's talk Three on Thursday.
That photo was in a post from a few days ago. Nothing special about it, except I noticed three important to me things hiding in the picture. Let's start at the bottom and go counter-clockwise.
1. Bottom left - It's a spider plant. A spider plant that is older than my baby boy! I've had that plant for 28 years. Twenty-eight! It's so tough it survived being left outside in a snow storm, a fall onto concrete from a second story deck and since the fall and the subsequent smashing of it's pot, it has lived in a plastic coffee can with no drainage holes. It's so tough, even after that hard life, it's still producing baby spider plants!
2. My You Call That Art painting. I'm certain I've mentioned it here before but a quick search didn't produce the original post. Anyway, it's an original painting of my great aunt looking at a piece of sculpture at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Apparently, she didn't think much of the sculpture and said "You call that art?" just as my grandmother snapped her photo. A family friend and artist who happened to be with them that day took the photo and painted it. Someone must have called the sculpture art because to this day, some 50 years later, it still sits outside of the museum.
3. My newest and most favorited addition to my knitting 'stuff.' Hanging on the hook on the door is my newly acquired Stars Hollow knitting bag that not only contains a few new skeins of yarn (shhh! don't tell!) but also my new Gilmore Girls stitch marker.

Hope you'll join me over at Carole's for today's Three on Thursday link up.
