Friday Smiles # 112:Twins



I realize it's been awhile, but I'm back, at least for this week.  However, this week, while visiting Annie at A Stitch in Time, I'm smiling for several reasons.  First, I've finished the Altered Playing Card challenge, and second I'm gearing up for April, when I share recycled projects from the first through the 22nd, which is bEARTHday.  I'm also smiling, because I'm seeing progress in my Kings and Queens altered book I'm making for my friend, but possibly the biggest smile this week is

I actually caught Bleubeard on camera. But that's only half the story.

You see, Annie is always showing photos of her twinnie munchkins.  Today, I'm showing photos of twins, too!

Granted, these twins don't exactly look the same, but they are friends I made while in grad school.  The twin on the right, Troy, is the one I was in school with.   The one on the left, Toby, got married and dropped out of college.  I met him through Troy and his (Toby's) wife.

I finally got both of them to smile,

while Bleubeard decided he wanted to sit on Troy's lap.


After Troy moved his chair back so we could talk at the table and enjoy a cup of hot tea, Bleubeard picked a spot and settled in.  Funny how Troy's jacket color changed when he moved to a sunny spot!

For once Bleubeard wasn't camera shy, but Squiggles refused to leave the safety of my office.

I hope you've enjoyed the twins, Bleubeard, and the smiles.  Please join Annie for more Friday Smiles.  Chances are, she'll have some twins in her post, too.

I think those are the most photos of Bleubeard I have seen in quite awhile! The twins must have had a good effect on him!

Have a great weekend!

Everyone is so happy to see Bleubeard! In fact, Missy T was so besides herself with joy and excitement, in trying to get closer to the iPad she fell off the chair back. :) She run off to tell Baby about seeing Bleubeard! The two of them are now sun bathing waiting for their friend to join them. The sun would be good for his old bones. ;) Fab pics today E. You are so lucky to have such a great circle of friends! Lovin' the K&Q AB btw. Hugs from all us girls. Warm snugly hugs to Bleubeard from T!

that Bluebeard is quite a cutie! and a big flirt!

Troy and Toby could be twins - if Troy got a beard and Toby got glasses, bet i couldn't tell them apart.

looks like you had a fun day visiting with them. i know Bluebeard did!

Lovely to see such great pictures of Bleubeard and his/your twinnie friends. Three nice guys, by the look of it.
Have a great weekend. Cardarian (Dolores) and I will meet up with Donna for her leaving party ( a celidh) before she departs our shores to live in La Belle France.
Hope you are well.

Bleubeard is just so darn cute. Making friends...or reacquainting himself with old ones.

AlteredAddict said...

You tell Bluebeard those are my snuggles he's giving away ;) lol

He is still as handsome as ever.

How is Squiggles doing, we need some more pictures of him.

Hugs to you, snuggles to the fur babies.
