ATW Linky #12 - Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

Welcome to "A Thousand Words" - A Snapshot Linky Party!  Get all the details RIGHT HERE!
It's finally here!  Again, sorry for the delay.  See here for details if you missed it...

Last week, our title was "I'll Take a Crack at it."  Here's my favorite photo linked:

by Nikki
This is a purple violin.  PURPLE!  Awesome, right?  Nikki shared her story of planning to learn how to play.  I love that she's taking on a challenging new hobby.

Here's your button, Nikki!

Loved the other links as well!  Great job, guys!

Our title for this week is

"Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder."

What do you find beautiful?  Do you see common things in uncommon ways?  Have you ever captured someone else enraptured with something beautiful - whether you think it is or not?  Can you turn something ugly into something beautiful?  Lots of ways to look at this one! 

Here are my two ideas:
Firstly, mr LOVES cool architecture, and he is amazed by skyscrapers.  He definitely loved walking around Chicago and in his eyes, the John Hancock building was pretty beautiful.

While I definitely preferred architecture with a lot of history and charm.

My other version of this title is bugaboo.  He's such a funny boy... he loves to pick me bouquets of "flowers".  They may be weeds by other people's standards, but to him they are beautiful.

Oh, and one more picture, but this one's just for fun.  Because I love this girl.

And now it's your turn!

1. Link as many photos as you like - you can put them in one post and link once or put them all in separate posts and link them all.  It's up to you.
2. You are strongly encouraged to use the title as a prompt for snapshots this week.  However, if you can't, you can't.  Linking up archived photos will NOT be frowned upon.
3. You don't need to follow me, but you do need to display the "a thousand words" button proudly.  You can find it on the left sidebar. 
4. Visit loads of people and comment.
5. By linking up you're giving me permission to include your linked photo in any features I do in the future.   I will never link to your other photos, just the one you put in the linky.
6. This is a week long party, it runs from Sunday to Sunday.
7. Be sure to come back next week!

Next week's title: (suggested to us by Emily from Insanity Rules) "Good Things Come in Small Packages."  (thanks, Emily!)
What tiny treasures are there in your life?  Can you find small packages that pack something GREAT?  Your kids?  Pets?  Little snacks you're fond of?  You decide...

Check back to link your versions, see my version and view the features from this week's linky.

If you have ideas for future titles, please leave a comment or shoot me an email.  Thanks!
