I love the Norman Rockwells! I was going to post the one of the older couple but you beat me to it ;-)

Your still life looks so darn inviting--could you pour a glass for me?

Have a wonderful Wednesday, Dixie☺

Well...resting by the bank of the river fishing and a glass of wine...sounds like a winning combo (as long as no power boats are involved!) LOL

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

Hi Dixie! This is my first time joining WW, and I'm excited!

Ooh, that glass of wine looked soooooooo cool and refreshing. Too bad I hate white wine. And red. LOL

Justine :o )

I love Norman, I think he is the greatest.

Mama said...

Dixie,

Thank you for becoming a follower, I really am happy to have another Texas Gal!

Mary said...

Love the bluebonnets!!
Have a good day!!

Piecefulafternoon said...

Thanks for WW - I am surprised how many of the posts have such long descriptions - kind of takes the fun out of it - but I love the ones that just post and have nothing to say.
Thanks again.

I have to type left handed but I wanted to stop by and see what you are doing.

I wish your WW posters would stop with all the words and follow your rules!

I love Norman Rockwell and Pachelbel's Cannon.

Dixie said...

Sally and Peaceful... I agree... it kinda defeats the purpose when you explain.. the purpose is to post a photo that you don't have to explain!?

Kinda reminds me of that test in highschool where the teacher says be sure to read all the instructions first... the students dive right in to answering the questions and hand in their papers only to find out that the instructions said "write your name at the top of the page, don't answer any questions, just turn in the paper with your name and you'll get an "A"...

some folks just have trouble reading instructions...

Next week... I'm going to eliminate the instructions and see what happens...

sending out some love on WW.

Hi Dixie...

What a beautiful still life photo, my friend! It just makes me wanna be there and take a big ol' sip of some of that bubbly! I love all of old Saturday Evening Post magazine covers of Norman Rockwell...a classic!!!

Thank you so much for hosting "Wordless Wednesday", Dixie! This is my third time to participate...so much fun!!! I'll be sure to visit the other participants. Girl, I just have to say how much I enjoy seeing all of those Texas bluebonnets in your header photo. I just moved to Colorado about 8 yrs. ago...up from Corpus Christi...seeing all of the pretty bluebonnets sure makes me homesick for Texas! I think Spring time was my favorite down there...seeing all of the fields and roadsides just lined with all the wild flowers...soooo very beautiful!!! Thank you for a trip down memory lane, my friend!

Happy Wordless Wednesday...
Chari

Wow, I always seem like such a slacker putting up only one picture! I need to find a variety of images to use for this. Thanks Dixie. I have so much fun with this!

Elaine said...

Dixie...I love your still life. It's so serene and just plain pretty. I couldn't decide which one to go with but I finally went with April Fool's. It's difficult not adding words isn't it? But I like the challenge....thanks for hosting!
Elaine :)

Carla said...

I finally find who hosts this so I could sign up! Great post-love Norman:)

Lynda said...

Thanks for hosting WW! :)

Denise said...

I just love Wordless Wednesday! It's a challenge to come up with a photo that doesn't need explanation. Seems like I met both your themes with my picture today. Hope you enjoy it. I LOVE Norman Rockwell art! And your table scene is so peaceful and sweet. Thanks again, Dixie!

Your still life is lovely, and I love the Rockwell covers. Couldn't help but notice the story in the 2nd one - "We must have steadier jobs" - the more things change . . . Kathy
