Sweet Somethings

In an effort to lift some of the sadness and gloom that has been blanketing a great deal of the world recently Carmi has selected "sweet" as this week's Thematic Photographic entry.
I took my camera along as I walked over to pick my daughter up from school this afternoon . Here are some of the sweet things we encountered around the neighborhood.
There was this old school bus. I don't think it runs anymore, but how sweet is that. What fun it must have been to ride the Winnie the Pooh bus.
Then there was this sweet little stencilled mural on a nearby wall.
And this rose growing alone and almost wild outside an apartment building (would a rose by any other name, etc...)
And of course this one, the sweetest sight of all.

Thank you for this sweet post. Love the stencil. And the little girl is the most precious of all!

How sweet - just what we all need.

Definitely sweet things, and that picture of Maya is amazing.

I'm still kinda partial to Carmi's picture this morning, though. Did you see it? After all those desserts yesterday (we had five, I think. Maybe six), a Dairy Queen sign can still make me drool.

Yeah, you get the "Aww-ward" for this collection for sure. (get it? aww. ward. nevermind.)

Sweet definitely sums it up...especailly that last one.

I agree, that last one is the sweetest one of all!

Maya is growing up so fast! She looks like a lady in the photo.

That Pooh bus has a touch of vintage in it. I like the effect.

Sweet girl in a sweet neighborhood,great idea for the theme, it's so easy to forget to see the good everyday things around us.

That stencil would make a cool tat!
