Who would you like to join me for a chat on the swing? 
I'll make some tea and muffins and we can sit for a while...

365 ~ 30 ~ Still Blooming

This begonia plant is rather neglected.  She sits in a hanging basket, suspended from my gazebo.  I might remeber to water her once or twice a year...she's hardy.

365 ~ 25 ~ Sash

As I continue with my bedroom makeover, I'm testing out different fabrics to make curtains from...I liked the eyelet, but it didn't win the contest. :)

365 ~ 24 ~ Knob

Getting ready to do an "Extreme Makover" in my bedroom...the dresser is on the list...paint, distressing, and um, I'm sending them on a trip back to the 70's...where they belong.

 However, they did make a nice subject for a photo.    :)

365 ~ 16 thru 23 ~ Busch Gardens

I thought I would be able to post daily while we were out of town, but the internet at our campground was way too slow...so I have to play catch up.

We took a few days away to go to Busch Gardens in Tampa, Fl....


16 ~ Tank
(What?  Your husband doesn't drop the gas tank before you go on a trip?)  LOL


 17 ~ Good n Plenty
(My favorite road trip snack)

18 ~ Rain
(Our first day there we were to spend all day at Busch, however the rain started the night before and never stopped all day, so we snuggled in the camper, played games and watched a movie)


19 ~ Care for a Swim?
(After entering Busch Gardens, you are greeted by the well fed gators...they are so fat and lazy...but I still wouldn't want to test their friendliness)


20 ~ King of the Land
(What a  beauty)


21 ~ Ooops!
(There is a bridge you can stand on and watch the flume ride.  We thought we had found a "dry" viewing spot, lol...I guess not!)


22 ~ Shiekra
This roller coaster is the biggest rush of fun ever!  It's smooth, doesn't mess with your head and gives you such a thrill when it drops you FACE down from 200 feet...yup, it's a straight down 90 degree drop...wow!!!


23 ~ Ellie
Isn't she just sweet?

365 ~ 15 ~ Project

I am participating in the 2011 Mommytography 365 Project!


The idea is to post an image a day, use and learn new things about my camera and photography. Anyone interested in photography can join, no need to be a Mommytographer. We have teens to adults, male and female, as well as people from all over the world.

I found this coffee table on Craigslist.  I've been looking for a round table for a long time, with a little design element.  It was stained dark cherry and I wanted to do a "white aged table"...here is my finished project.

I liked the natural light and soft shadows that were created at this time of day...

Next door to our Dr. office is an optomologist.  This dog seems quite content, as he lives there each day.

My front porch.  It's chilly enough for the reds to be bright...by mid summer, they will be pale from the heat.  It's warm enough for me to prepare my veggie garden (see the flat full of cabbage plants).  January isn't so bad in Florida. :)

Egyptian



This is my next door neighbor's Egyptian Walking Iris....I wish it would "walk" on over to my garden.  She gave me 2 divisions, but mine have not done quite as well as hers...so pretty.

Sunspot


My boxer has adopted this spot on the floor where the sun comes through the window...I think she believes she is a cat. :)

I loved the softness of this photo, and even liked (to an extent the shadows)...but they were too deep and you can't see her adorable face.  A flash washed it out completely and took away "what I saw".  Any suggestions on how to correct this?

~ Sun Fire ~


I took this photo from my front yard at sunset.  No, there wasn't a fire, but this was the true color in the sky.  I had to adjust the exposure a little bit, as the trees were blending into the night sky.  I use Picnik to make photo adjustments.

365* ~ 6 ~ Sunday Assignment

Happy New Year!


The "2" is actually the "Y" in a Joy decoration I have. 
The "0" is ...well, a sand dollar.
A roman numeral clock in my hall bath and a Tinkerbell sticker make up the 1's.
I used the "Lomoish" effect in Picnik, and on 2 of the photos, I added a sepia tone.

I have a passion for food, for cooking and creating and chopping and stirring and baking...this shiny tomato made me hungry for Pasta Sauce!  Guess what's for dinner tonight?

365 ~ 4 ~ Sweet

I woke up this morning, went for a spoon and look what I found.  There is something about a love note, a simple, precious note that melts my heart. :)

"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her,..."
Ephesians 5:25

365 ~ 1, 2, and 3

365 ~ 1 ~ New Beginnings!

On New Years Day, as we were taking down our outdoor Christmas lights, we came upon this butterfly...his cocoon, freshly opened was attached to a light strand that was strung around our front door.  He had just hatched...what a way to start the new year...beautiful!


365 ~ 2 ~ Restoration

After our RV fire this past summer, we are finally taking the time to replace the carpet, yet again....and make new privacy curtains, and new seat covers, and install a new stereo.  The  benefit of this hard work is a cute and fun RV to camp in...woo-hoo! :)



365 ~ 3 ~ Cozy Creativity

I've been wanting to make some changes to our bedroom, and I was waiting for just the right sale to help me out...today I found a steal on some soft white fabric...the lace I already had tucked away in my craft closet, and it was bleached white after this photo was taken...
