SHS Photo Challenge 19

Sure do love searching for just the right shots for each prompt. This week we were looking for  . . . Love (isn't everybody), Duplicate, Trend or Trending, Paper and Plastic.

1.  Love
 My favourite decoration for the Day of Love . . . a thrifted Mason jar painted and embellished . . . so pretty.

2.  Duplicate
I have duplicates of my favourite pens . . . Sarasa Gel Pens and Xeno ballpoint.

3.  Trend or Trending
I don't use Twitter but when I checked what was trending today, Whitney Houston's funeral had just finished and the phrase that was tweeted over and over was these words from a song sung at the end . . . 
"the LORD has spoken, let the church say Amen". 
 That is what inspired this choice from my archives . . . taken in Quebec City, 2010.

4.  Paper
 A pretty paper gift bag . . . got something sweet in it for my birthday last week.

5.  Plastic
My friend Alison has CP and only limited use of her right hand.  This Christmas she received these knitting looms and a whole world of creativity has opened up for her.  You should see her smile.

Thanks to our lovely hostess, Ashley Sisk at Ramblings & Photos.  
Linking up and perusing all the great submissions . . .

Next weeks clues are:
1. Crossed
2. A Glimpse
3. Handwritten
4. Bliss
5. Gray
