Living With White - Edited....

As I was looking at my previous post featuring my 'white' living room, I noticed that the pictures were dull and yellowy.  I realized the reason was that all my curtains and shutters were closed.  The windows face west, and we have to keep the blinds and shutters closed to avoid extremely hot sun.  It's hard enough to keep the house cool in our 90 degree weather.

So, this morning I opened the curtains, blinds and shutters and took more pictures.....
Much better!  
Big difference, huh?  Sometimes it takes me a while to 'get it'!

I love having all curtains open....this is a nice, bright living room!

This is an antique folk art wall basket which I have added vines, a hornet's nest and feather.

Well, I'm always learning.  Maybe I should start hinting for a fancier camera for my birthday in October....and a few photography classes?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Nature Behind Glass

I was just messing around in my studio today to get some stuff ready to take to the antique shop where I rent a small shelf.  I seldom start with a plan as.....I seem to do my best work when I'm spontaneous.
I've had this glass display case for a while with no inspiration and even tried to 'rust' the metal (it didn't work).  I actually now like the juxtaposition of the natural, rustic elements and the glass and metal.

"Nest" woven from Black Eyed Susan vine, assorted mosses, quail eggs, hornet's nests, tallow berries, a vintage clay pot, feathers and a few branches.....nature's bounty!

I'll be taking it to the shop tomorrow...

Thanks for stopping by, and I would love to hear from you.

Sometimes Inspiration Takes A While

Found this at the thrift husband thought I had lost my mind.  
Just had to wait for a vision.... 

6 months later:

Vintage galvanized basin
Potted amaryllis bulb and violas
Stack of vintage greenhouse pots

Oh, I love it, but....
I sold it!

A New Puppy In The House

Her name is Rebecca.  We'll call her 'Becca'!
We adopted her yesterday for our 'forever' dog.
She's 9 weeks old and most likely a combination of lab and boxer...a real sweetie.

Oophs....this post was just literally interrupted.....she pooped.  Oh well, here we go!


She's a little shy..

Have a wonderful week...
I'll be catching up on my dog training skills.

Oh, and yes....she slept in our bed last night!
