Thursday assignment a day early: Two things somehow connected

Answer from yesterdays picture: My ivy plant with two cool filters:)

Linda's assignment was pretty cool this week: Come up with two things or people that are somehow connected and yet, are independent of each other. That was my take. Thankfully, there has been only one thing (or one person I should say) on my mind since last night. The two objects below are so different from each other, one might say they couldn't possibly be connected:
Trish gave me the idea for the stamp design from her earlier post this week. The fruit and bowl represent Africa, which is where the bowl came from. The paint is what I've been doing today in one of the upstairs bedrooms. Both of these things are connected to me because they represent two things I wish I was doing with Mike right now. Sometimes all you want to do is be with the person you love and do normal things, like paint a room, do laundry, watch a TV show. Other times, you want to share your adventures, like going to Africa, traveling, discovering something new. Either way, Mike is the only person I would like to do those things with, the normal things, the difficult things, the adventures and the trials. If we did them together, it would all, the good and the bad, be worth it. Mike: I love you. And that is the connection between those two pictures .

Wow, Jayme...this is amazing (both the image and the writing)!!! I almost felt guilty reading's as though I peeked in your diary. :-)

Please tell did you create this stamp? I love the idea! Maybe we should all complete the assignment in the form of a postage stamp! Terrific interpretation of the assignment...I love it!!!

P.S. I really love the fruit image, too! Perhaps you could take a photo of this subject for another day's post?

Great post. I, too, like the look of the postage stamp and want to know how you did it.

I love the paint swatch--wish I had the energy/drive to do some painting around here. The perspective of the fruit shot is very appealing.

BTW--you forgot the trophy again. Does that mean it's mine till next month?

I agree with Trish and Linda - this is a wonderful post and I also want to know how you made it look like a stamp. Do you give lessons?

this is a wonderful post.
the writing and the image are sooo good.
it is like a perfectly prepared meal or an outfit that is jsut right one part complimenting the other.
i love the clever postage stamp idea.
great job!

To my eye it looks like you have the purple shade in both sides of the stamp..It must have been a real job composing the fruit and the purple..Do you use that color on your walls?

Sounds so simple; a life together, also sounds good for a life together,...carrying water and cutting wood

When are you going to Africa again?
