A Colourful Past from Ancient Persia

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Past Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/10/16/past-squares-16/

In 2016, when my son came to visit us from London we took a trip to the Aga Khan Museum in the east end of Toronto. There were lots of beautiful Persian artifacts and many of them were circular so this post features two themes from past squares.

October Squares – Circles and Squares

I’m posting these for Oct. 9 because I feel I”m behind in this challenge

The squares are from an art challenge that I started in the summer and the circles are from nature.

TGIFFF – Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian Friends

yes we celebrate Thanksgiving in Canada, just at a different time

Our Thanksgiving Day is earlier in the year than in the U.S. because we’re further north and our harvest time is typically in Sept/Oct..

Tonguely has met a new friend and would like to invite him over for Thanksgiving dinner. Should he tell him……..????
