HNT-Best of Lime Edition

Yes, I know I am a week late. I had guests last week and so you get my recap this week. You'll all live, I'm sure. And if you won't then make sure I have an address where I can send a sympathy card. I am lousy at superlatives so you get more than one favorite from me.

This first one I liked because it is an angle of myself I had never seen before. I was shocked to find that I have sorta ok legs when you check from the right angle. I also loved the black stockings against the colorful curtains.

Ok, technically in this next shot we have the worst of Lime but this one just cracks me up. The one with the spoon on my nose also makes me laugh but this one wins for sheer expression. It was to show how I feel about 5 am mornings. It was taken at that time. And damn if it doesn't capture my sentiments perfectly.



This was my first attmept at anything artsy. It is with my grandfather's guitar and in honor of him. I was pleasantly surprised by how it came out. I think he would have liked it.



This one is one my daughter captured and I just love it. I think she did a great job and I think this picture best expresses who I am....looking at the world from a strange angle and having fun refusing to grow up.



This one fills my heart with happiness. I love the way it shows my son's dirty but gentle little boy hands while he is marvelling over something that fills him with awe and wonder. It captures much of who he is, my gentle giant.

So which one is your favorite? Or is there another one you remember that you wish I'd included?

Happy New Year and Happy HNT!

I like the sleepy 5 am b/c in 6 hours I will be in the same position! I love the rope too though, that's a look of sheer joy! Happy HNT!

Breazy said...

I have liked all of your HNTs ! Happy HNT!

loz said...

wow, I love all of them, especially with your reasons included. I think I like the one with the guitar best, because it just has so much emotion to it even without the reason. happy hnt :).

Choosing a favorite amoung those beauties would be like going to a garden and trying to pick the prettiest flower. They are all frame worthy- :)

Beautiful series. HHNT!

Wow! WOWOWOWOWOW! SO HARD TO CHOOSE! I never saw the stocking one before! I have a major thing for stockings. ROWR! That's HAWT!
The morning shot cracks me up but it's not a fave. I like sexy.
The guitar shot has always been my fave. It inspires sheer lust. You look pretty hot too. ;-)
I never saw the rope one either but I have to call that my fave.
Your son's hands, while beautiful, don't count toward HNTs of you in my opinion. Despite the fact that it makes me think of zip lines it captures the limey spirit I've come to know and love. Rock the heck on! HHNT!
PS I have a good one up today!
Speaking of showing our inner selves...

Michelle, The stockings? HELL YES!

Your pic at SeaRabbits? Exquisite!

lecram sinun said...

Your heas on the table one cracks me up too! I have one just like it... except with a glass of scotch.

BTW... thanks for pointing out the IE issue on the new digs... problem solved.

Blither said...

I love all those Ms Limey!! You do fabulous photos!! Very special indeed!

Logophile said...

I do love the swing picture, although, and I know based on our convo the other day you will know exactly why, there is that pic of you driving again after the all clear with Juanita, I like that one alot too.

m_o_o_nspells said...

Nice choices...I like the guitar pic best because it's artsy and a tribute but still nekkid! ;o)
HHNT!

jillie said...

Those pictures are fabulous! I just love the guitar black and white...it screams sensual music like you can here it playing in the back. Your daughter did a great job with you on the swing...it is so full of life, unlike the 5:00 a.m. but I know how that feels AND looks.

jillie said...

Oh yeah...great legs too!

Mark Leslie said...

A great selection of favourite pics, Michelle. I remember laughing at the priceless expression on the 5AM morning one, and I do remember being very fond of the guitar pic (both for the artistic nature of it and the wonderful tribute it represented - and it's kind of sexy too), but I think the one of you swinging definitely captures that essence of you, so have to mark that one down as my favourite.

Happy New Year and Happy HNT!

Ameratis said...

I cannot pick which one I like the best. The morning one so describes me that early. The hands with the cricket is just like a pic I would take. The swinging one is a perfect portrayal of the fun I sense you have in life too.

They are all great. I did my first HNT this week!

Great Best of HNT

snavy said...

I absolutely love the artsy guitar pic. The swing one is very you and I'm thinking that's my favorite. You were using a net when you took that picture? Right?

I'm with breazy but if I had to choose it would be the stockings and the guitar.

BTExpress said...

Of these, I pick the guitar pic. That really is an excellent shot. Happy HNT!

I can see why it was so hard to choose... they are all wonderful! If I had to pick one, I would take the one your daughter took... it's so full of happiness.

I'm partial to the special one you did at my request, but that one with your grandfather's guitar is a work of art.

Love the pantyhose! I have worn those before but I can never get the line straight up the legs.

Chickadee said...

My favorite is the guitar one too but the one with you on the swing comes in a close second.

Looking forward to another year of reading your blog!

My favorite is you with the guitar. Awesome! And of course you have great legs! But it's tough for you to see them because you're right on top of them, silly!

barefoot_mistress said...

Ah yes, all very good HNTS madam! I think my favorite which you didnt post was done just a few weeks ago when you took that pic from above black and white, and you were all cross legged and curled up.....I missed the faves ones, but I think my Romeo and Juliet and the Anastasias HNT are my favorites.....

tommy said...

Honey, I don't think I could pick one if you paid me to. I love them all. You are gorgeous even at 5 a.m.! HHNT and talk to you later.

How to choose among all this very well captured situations are a hard nut to crack. The one of your son reminds me of my youngest boy: He too was crazy about all small living creatures.
But sitting here at my workplace and looking forward to another weekend:
The Woman Guitar Player must be my fav.

Michelle at 5.00am. If that didn't wake you up, nothing would.
Love all of them.
:)

The one with the guitar is a beautiful shot.

My fav will always be the muddy hands with the critter... Just reminds me too damn much of my little bug loving daughter. :-)

I must say I like the way the lines run up the back of stockings
