Meet my latest find and newest edition to my photo props.
Sometimes things are just right in front of my nose and I don't see them. This chair was. My sister and I recently went to a flea market, where I picked up a few small things for photography; a vintage piece of lace, a small blue cup, and a wooden bowl. There was a wire basket that I looked at and then put back. Later I wished I'd bought it, so I decided to make a return trip. I picked up the basket and started to walk away when I saw what it had been sitting on! This sweet little child's chair. I love it...pealing pain, wobbly legs, missing pieces of wood, and all! I finally got a chance this week to photograph it for a class (Be Still-52) I'm taking with Kim Klassen. Our focus was on allowing room in our photos and our lives so that we can breathe.
Linking with Kim's Friday Finds.
It's rained every day this week. In fact, it's raining as I type! The rain has left the pasture damp and with the warmer temperatures the mushrooms are sprouting. I have never seen one like the one on the bottom right. It looks like a marshmallow sitting on the ground.
Some days I don't know which way is up!
Arkansas strawberries are in and they are delicious. I made strawberry freezer jam this week. I refuse to tell you how much sugar the recipe calls for! We'll ignore that fact! I'll just have to walk an extra lap or two when I eat any! I love to make pancakes on Sunday night and strawberry jam is the best topping there is!
One of my azalea bushes has just now bloomed. It's never done this before, bloom later than the others. Did it want to be noticed so it bloomed by itself or was it just waiting to soak up all this rain?
I found some different seedpods yesterday. In each of these bell shapes there are several tiny black seeds just waiting to be scattered by the wind!
I'm going to be a little scarce for the next week. I'll be spending time with family. I hope each of you have a great weekend!
