I don’t know why I didn’t post my Still Life Sunday images here. I’ve been taking so many photos lately, I guess I skipped that one. Instead of trying to catch up by posting them all, I’ll begin with today and then hopefully remember to post each Sunday from now on. I’m going to have to watch what I’m doing or instead of simplifying my life, I’ll be filling that proverbial plate too full once again.
I visited the “Little Red Hen” antique shop on Thursday this past week……..felt the need to see if I could find anything on my prop wish list…..and I did! All for under $10 too!
I found this awesome stoneware tea pot and a really well-used wooden spoon (spoon not pictured). So today, I set myself up a shoot with a couple dried roses, a vintage milk jar, an old skeleton key, a Homer Laughlin cup, my new teapot and a piece of burlap.
I took the image from Lightroom to Photoshop CC, added a lightroom preset by Kim Klassen called kk-within and then found a quote which fits right in with my Word for 2015 – Simplify. I’m trying to let my word simmer in my brain….to let it call out to me……help me to simplify my life which is exactly what I NEED to do….and this quote was perfect for me. I’ve been letting go lately….with the remodel and decluttering, things have gotten simpler in my life but there’s still a ways to go. I’ll continue to ponder on my word and let it continue simmering within me, soaking up all I can learn and do to simplify my life.
I post these each Sunday on Instagram with #mystillsundaycompetition as part of Kim’s “Be Still Fifty Two” class. So fun, so inspiring!
Hope you pop back in each week to see what I’ll be posting for Still Life Sunday on Instagram!
Hugs and Have An Artistic Day!
