Out watering the front yard flowers for about the umpteenth trillionth time this summer I saw Aaron and his Dad walking home. Aaron stays at a small day-care here in our neighborhood so every evening Dad walks to pick up Aaron and then the two walk home together, slowly but surely. I quickly grabbed my camera again, and began to snap away...how could one resist a charmer like this, especially with his little cap. He steals my heart he is so darn cute.
Busy gathering fallen berries...important work.
Look out ladies, here comes gorgeous!!
After spending the day inside, again, I did manage to make some progress on finishing my bathroom projects. Today I put the final coat of primer on all the drawers, cabinet and doors of the vanity that will be painted black, changed out the hardware on the yellow bathroom vanity, hung curtains in yellow bathroom and washed a couple of loads of laundry. So this slouch got a little something accomplished today. Not as much as I wanted, something always pulls me to grab my camera and take a walk around the garden. And then ofcourse I have to come back inside, download the pictures and then begin to edit them, oh my I do get distracted....
A little distraction....I have never seen a bug like this, it is a wowzer!! I wouldn't mind having a piece of jewelry or a scarf with these colors and patterns. Nature is amazing.
And another ball jar, this one smaller than my other two. Picked it up at the same place I bought the others, a little antique store in Elburn, IL. It's a hoppin' place, pieces going in and out all the time. Saw several items there I could easily have brought home, but resisted. I used my new Ball Jar on this week's challenge at Texture Tuesday. Kim challenged is to use 2 or more of her wonderful textures on one image. And that I did...1st layer Linen Look at linear burn 58% opacity, 2nd layer French Market at color burn 62%. Erased the first layer around the flower at 11% opacity, desaturated and lightened the whole image after adding the layers.
And finally, again with Kim in her Beyond Layers class, she has challenged us with fence week, fences all week long. I have always had a place in my heart for fences, any kind, any shape so this will be fun for me. I was really glad there was a fence separating me from this bull, he definitely had his eyes on me.
