DELICATE – A PHOTO A WEEK – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Delicate


Delicate beadwork and fragile flowers.

Honestly? We don’t have a lot of “delicate” here. What we have is carefully placed where it can’t be knocked over by a clumsy human or enthusiastic dog.

In this house, if it can be broken, it has already been broken.

Very delicate. Also shattered and gone. All I have left is the photograph.

It’s why, though I love them, I shiver at the idea of a kitten. Dogs, at least, mostly hang with the floor. But cats leap and climb curtains. I don’t think this house would survive that.

I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t survive it either.

  1. Since moving to the little flat, there are really only the window ledges for pretty things (okay, I could put things on the shelves, but that’s book space!). I still manage to break stuff though…

      1. Don’t blame yourself. I don’t know about you but I’m running out of room for things. Unfortunately, some things get broken. At least you still have a photo of it.

  2. Lovely photos. I’m sorry you lost your pretty vase. We have a dog that we’ve had to bar from the hardwood floors (we are planning on selling the house soon or he would be allowed), and that also keeps him away from some of the more delicate trinkets on display in the living room. Don’t feel to bad for him. We spend most of our time in the basement family room, which is his domain. 🙂 Thanks for joining the challenge!
