We made it! We all survived the worst of the winter months. I am certain that we will see more snow, ice and freezing temperatures but when it is March, we know they won't last. Today I'm spending part of my day adding a few spring touches to my house. I'm continuing the colors from my new wreath inside the house. I changed the ribbon on my old keys and switched out the antique Valentine postcards to vintage Easter cards.
A pastel petal egg rests on a bed of moss in my chippy cloche.
My glass bunny held candy back in the 40's.
I love this soft pastel polka-dot ribbon.
The birds are starting to come out to play in my yard and in my house. This one adds a little bling to the vignette.
It is very bright in my house today (sunshine!) and I felt as if the sun sort of washed out my photos. Since I have a new camera, I decided to experiment with a different setting. The picture below is set to "Super Vivid" which actually does come closer to real color of the table and vignette, although the ribbon is a bit less "vivid" in person.
Thank you to all who offered advice on what camera to buy. I opted to get the Canon Powershot SX130 IS. It was a bit less camera than I really wanted, but when I looked at the ones that I thought I was going to buy, they were simply too large for me. I need to be able to carry my camera in my purse or pocket and so I gave up a few features to be able to do that. What I didn't give up was the ability to play with color in my photos. I love being able to do this...
I am joining Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday.
Make sure you stop in to thank her for being our hostess!
