Daily Photo: Basil and Bella and the Yellow Basket

Basil & Bella & the basket.
Basil & Bella & the basket.

I shared these on Facebook and Instagram, and now that I have new functionality on my site I can actually embed my posts so you can see them here without going to Facebook! I’m excited about this. I’ve come to enjoy sharing spontaneous photos during the day and I also want to share them here, but it’s so time-consuming to download them from Facebook, save them all, copy and paste the text, and so I haven’t been doing them at all.

But how could you miss these photos?! I’ll be playing around with this feature now, and I’m not sure if I’ll embed the Facebook posts into my daily photo posts or if I’ll immediately share them here from Facebook. I’m so stuck on posting my daily items in order: daily feature, daily photo, daily sketch. But I think slipping in a photo here and there, even the morning ones from the back yard and the night time ones from my studio, would be okay.

I posted this on Saturday after these two just organized themselves into their respective baskets, and it was pretty popular!


Then today I decided to share a few more, and now it all ended up. The post above was a single photo, so I shared the whole post, but the ones below were a group of photos and when they were displayed as a group they were were smaller and cropped to fit into a gallery, so I did them individually. We’ll see how I work this out.

A few more from yesterday’s basket incident. I loved Basil and Bella’s expressions in this one, “Can’t you do something interesting instead of taking more pictures?” And how it all ended up, curled end to end in the yellow basket. Basil and Bella aren’t related, but Bella ended up in my foster room with Basil and they have been bonded from the moment they met.

I have a few others to catch up on too!

  • I also check my blog before I go to FB and I do not see FB every day(time constraints)
    Those two are so cute, especially Bella and her eyes!
    Nancy and the kitties

    • Nancy, I was lucky to get anything done! I wish FB would share my posts the way it does my photos, but sometimes no one sees my posts on FB. I’m so glad for readers here!

  • Very cute basket photo. I am glad you can put it here because I don’t get on Facebook that often.

    • Pilch92, I have a number of readers who aren’t on FB. FB isn’t very good at sharing my posts sometimes, and then they’re gone! I actually prefer to share from here, that way I can always find the images again.
