Worn….Lots of things come to mind when I think of this word. I think of being worn out after a hard day working or having fun, I think about a favorite pair of flip flops worn time and again until they become worn out. Worn out clothes, worn out walls and worn out pictures fading with the years. The old saying, “That’s my name, don’t wear it out” comes back to me and how I always wondered how you could actually be capable of wearing a name out. Bodies worn out from age or illness appear in my mind and minds worn out from over thinking and analyzing too much. There’s a lot that could fit in this category of “Worn”.

As I have done weekly from the beginning of this challenge, I scoured through photos to find pictures that make me think of this theme. I hope you like the ones I found!

Birthday cake is for being "worn" as well as eating

I did NOT take this photo but it gives humor to the theme of “worn” in a way that makes me smile. This was taken at my youngest great nephew’s 1st birthday party and it always makes me laugh to see it. 🙂

A costume worn once when Angel was a puppy
A "Vintage" but definitely not worn out engagement ring 🙂

If you haven’t followed my blog for very long, you may not have known that my engagement ring used to be my husband’s great grandmother’s wedding ring. Therefore, I thought a picture of it fits the “worn” theme in a unique way.

An old "worn" piece of the Berlin Wall(at Ripley's believe it or not in San Antonio,TX)

And last, but not least:

An old Mission in San Antonio, Texas

Even when things are old, worn out and maybe even tattered, I think there’s a certain charm about them that just sets them apart from the new. Worn doesn’t have to be a negative theme, it can be positive! 🙂


  1. Nice take on the theme, Sharon!

    Kids love wearing birthday cake . . . and spaghetti!
    Dogs do NOT love playing dress up.
    I wear an antique ring that my grandmother gave to my Great Aunt.
    And I love old buildings that have withstood the test of time.


    1. That doggie costume was actually bought by one of my nieces for her puppy and they thought it would look cute on my puppy so I tried it on her that ONE time. Other than that, I never dressed her up.
      Antiques are awesome, I have several old fashioned necklaces my Nanny has given me because she knows how much I love vintage jewelry. 🙂


    1. LOL….I thought every family did that!
      Everyone in my family and most of my friends for their baby’s first birthday, they make a little cake just for the 1 yr. old and stick it in front of them so they can smoosh their hands in it and get all messy….it’s cute! They actually had to help my great nephew though for this picture! He was just sticking a finger in carefully and licking it off. 🙂
