I am so loving my new teacup and this week's Be Still (week 44) lesson! We were to take one thing and use it to create different photos with the possibilities being endless. I chose my new teacup that my husband surprised me with this week.
The first photo is one I made specifically for my sister.... it includes also a mother's day card I made for our mom when I was in fourth grade and our grandmother's tiny silver spoon (I actually have six of them)... something else I love too!
A couple of weeks ago, we bought a dining room chair from the Cythera Boutique and got it for a great price. We have since chalk painted, distressed and reupholstered it.... something else I am loving too! I had loads of fun using it to display my teacup along of course with my favourite teddy bear.
Hmmmm.... while at the Cythera Boutique the other day, I happened to notice a beautiful Royal Albert teapot that was quite a close match to my teacup... maybe you will see it in upcoming photos... we'll see!
Don't you just love this time of the year with all the pretty blossoms and birds singing! We wait for spring all through the winter and then we wake up one morning and here it is in all its beauty. Last week's lesson that I really enjoyed was on "pretty pastels". Here are some photos that I took.
I finally visited our local scrapbooking store last week... had a lovely conversation with the lady who owns it and I will definitely be visiting there again. I used some of the sheets I bought for backgrounds. The blue and yellow napkins are from one of my favourite stores the Cythera Boutique and I borrowed some hardcover books from the library at our local Legion.
Hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend!
Be Still 52 -Crates In or On (week 42)
I didn't have a chance to post week 42 last week, so here it is now. Instead of a crate, I chose a very old hat box that used to belong to my grandfather. It stores my first communion and wedding veils. For the second photo, I used an IKEA basket. Our daughter had dropped off a plant for our next door neighbour and of course before I brought it to my neighbour, I thought it would be a good prop for my lesson.
That's it for today folks... it's been a fun, exciting and "photographing" week!
