Special Collection ~ Color Crazy


This week brings a new color for Kim’s challenge. We will be painting the site with yellow for a few days. You can read all about it here at this link:  Color Crazy Yellow

Sharing one of Dustin’s favorite Hot Wheels cars. He had a large collection of Hot Wheels & Matchbox cars. I would buy one each week when I went grocery shopping. Always a surprise for him, he knew I was buying one, but never knew which one it would be. 

They are only a few inches long, but he loved all of them. Thankfully I still have his collection.

Hot Wheels is a brand of die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It was the primary competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. By the time the car phase had passed we had so many of them.

    I remember, as a child, when the Johnny Lightning cars were introduced (Johnny Rutherford drove the Johnny Lightning car at the Indy 500 we all wanted to have those cars!)

  2. I have kept momentos from my high school graduation, college, weddiing…I’m very sentimental! I cleaned out a box of momentos a few months ago, thinking that I’d empty it…but no. I still saved a few from each event. And I have tons of pictures.
