I Have Stars In My Eyes – My entry for the Blog Photo Challenge: Shape

I Have Stars In My Eyes – My entry for the Blog Photo Challenge: Shape

The theme for the Dutch Goes the Photo Challenge for this week is Shape. I did not set out to post Stars – the photo theme revealed itself to my while I was going through my images.  The star shaped folded paper, flower petals, sun rays, bulletin board post, a favorite basket, and an iconic night light in our town are my submissions for this photo challenge.  I know now that I have Stars in my Eyes!  Enjoy!
