Styling, Camera Practice and Photo Affects for the Dining Room Table

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends

Are you enjoying your summer??
and for those that have them, are you
enjoying time doing things with your

Hope so...as those are precious times! 
and when they grow up you will miss
those times sooo much but will have
some great memories to think on.

Along with working on our office/
computer room this week......
and Guess What??

I finally finished yesterday!!
Whoo Hoo.....

and.....I am seriously......
 Delighted and Tickled Pink!!
and will probably show yall
some pics next week!

(Hey that rhymes, so I am a
poet but didn't know it!  lol)

Sorry..........I digressed........
So..... along with working on the 
above I also did some Tray styling,
 camera shooting and Photo Affects.

I had my eye on this Tray (as I am
in love with this color) for quite
 awhile, saw it on the Kirklands 
website a number of times as I go
 there when an occasion arises for
 a gift for my daughter or daughter-
 in- love. Anyway, it wasn't super 
expensive but by the time you pay 
shipping and all that you know
 how it is......and I really do not
like to pay shipping charges.
Anyway,  when we went to the store 
to get the wall piece last weekend, 
that we took back this weekend, lol, 
they had the tray for half price @
 $6.99, so could not resist.......
I always say good things come
to those who wait..........lol

Decided it would be nice on our
 dining room table, for summer.
  I don't use a tablecloth in the
 summer, Do you?? unless we are
 using the table for dinner, as I just
 think igives it a more casual 
undressed look...and a very nice 
change for the season.  This year
 I am not making a lot of summer
changes,  just staying with my
Spring look mostly,  and maybe
adding or subtracting a few
things here or there.

This was the first vignette and
these are all the pictures from
that.............styling a tray is
really not that hard,  you just
have to keep trying different
things until you come up
with something you really

With Posterized Affect

When I was in my late 20's, I had a friend
 who could do all sorts of neat things.......
she shaker shingled her kitchen wall, grew 
all sorts of veggies, macrame'd, made her
own curtains and on and on I could go.

Anyway, I was so impressed with all
her capabilities and asked her how in
 the world did you learn to do all these
things and her answer was:

"Just by trying it.... you will be
 surprised at what you can do if
 you just try it!"

So I took her advice......and guess
what......she was so right!
That was almost 40 yrs. ago and since
then I have made and done all sorts of
things, that I am quite pleased and
delighted about and I am thankful
I met her, as that lil tad of advice
has taken me a long happy way!!

Hope you will come back on Thursday
for part 2,  and see the other vignettes
 and the one I ended up with 
for the Summer!

Thanks for popppin in........
hope you enjoyed yourself.

Have a Truly Blessed Week,
