...hello dear readers
i have been in a most reflective mood this week,
knee deep in weeding out ~ things.
things that no longer have a purpose in my home,
and nothing is escaping my touch
from the closets to the furniture to the garage
(oi, dare i go there?!)!
and let me just say,
i have been weeding
i feel an awesome yard sale coming on
cause these stuffs are pretty things mind you!
but it is necessary.
my style is melding more into the beauteous atmosphere
found in the pages
combined with shabby chic
(gotta have them ruffles baby!!)
it is a "less is more" approach
and i imagine dusting will be a dream now too ~ lol!!
in my spare time
i have also been teaching myself photoshop
a daunting rabbit hole, i know,
as the days go on
i actually feel more confident using it
~ and i never thought i would!!
i have to tell you
your comments spur me on!!
this blogging world is full of creative, supportive women
and i sooo enjoy being a part of it
thank you, thank you!!
these photos are of a doll i pulled down to dust.
she was a birthday gift from my dearest mia years ago.
she made it from a vintage doll head from italy
and contructed a dress of vintage roses and petals
in my most favorite shade of pink,
whisper shell pink
this sweet creation is also a music box
she spins around and around to the tune of
can you guess?
why, happy birthday of course!
as if she were a rotating Italian patisserie
a beautiful pink cream puff!
(in case you were drawn in by my title, this is it!)
good enough to eat
but i was inspired to design a tag for my etsy shop!
what do you think?
i've also started linking up with some wonderful texture blog parties
so if this next part sounds like chopsticks to you
in a nutshell
i've used 2 of kim klassan's textures
set on soft light/ 100% opacity
set on soft light/ 68% opacity
i have also tweaked the lighting and my actual photo settings.
and that's it!
