The Letter "D"

This week's photo challenge is the letter "D".
I didn't think I'd run into a tough letter until further into the alphabet.
But, it turns out that "D" was a bit challenging.

I couldn't use my dog because I used her for "A" as in "Airedale". Then, there were lots of things that start with "Dog" but nothing I could think of that would look good in a photo...dog food, dog leash, dog bed, etc.  Dogwood trees would be nice but they don't grow around here.  I thought of "Downstairs" but my carpeted staircase isn't really a thing of beauty.  I know places where I could find some beautiful staircases but it would be quite a drive.  Hmmm?  Maybe I'll be able to do that for "S".

Anyway, I thought and thought and mentally went all through my house
trying to find things that start with "D".  Here's what I came up with...

Doilies...


Doll...  She's a cute little vintage doll that I inherited years ago.  
She's made with fabric yo-yo's.  Doesn't she have a cute face?!


Doll...A very old china doll that belonged to my grandmother.
She gave it to me when I was a teenager.  She has such beautiful eyes.
They even open and close.  I've always liked her teeth too.  
Not sure about those giant eyebrows though.  lol


Dowels...from my warping board.


If you'd like to play along in this fun alphabet photo challenge hop on over
to Basically Benita for details.  Let me know too because I'd love to see what you come up with.

Love the dolls! I have loved dolls since I was a kid and never outgrew it. I didn't like baby dolls, but loved "friend" dolls.

I'll get the link to your page up tomorrow.

Sounds like a fun challenge. You came up with some good things after all. Of course, doilies!

Excellent Ds! This really can be a challenge, can't it? I have taken some pictures in advance because I know the foxgloves may not be handy when I need them. Or the roses.

Love the doilies and the dollies!

I really like the dolls and doilies. My daughter has a pretty collection of china dolls and I have a small collection of doilies that were made by my grandmother.

This sounds like it would be fun!

I love how you photographed the doilies.

What is a warping board?

The alphabet challenge sounds fun, but I am still trying to finish up a bunch of projects. Can one jump in at any time?
