Home Sweet Home #14

Welcome to Home Sweet Home!  These are the out takes from yesterday's spring tablescape.  I have gotten to where a straight table setting does not have enough angles for me.  I had to rearrange the dishes and take some more photos just for the beauty of the colors and patterns. 

Photography has become a main theme on this blog.   If I can't put an artsy shot in each post I am disappointed. 

Flowers are the easiest artsy shots, but dishes work too.

All photos above have been edited with the Kim Klassen texture Chamomile. 

My vintage inspiration is a vintage milk bottle from a collection of family antiques.
Thanks for joining me here at Home Sweet Home.
I am joining these ladies go and visit them too.

Hi Sherry...

Ohhh..I always love coming to your place, my friend! You are such a fabulous photographer and your photos never disappoint! I certainly understand where you are coming from....from the photography part. When I first started my blog, it was all about the decorating, etc. Since then I have really developed a love and interest in photography...although I am just an amateur at just excites me to be able to get a few "artsy" photos! Hehe! Loved your photos on today's post! I have just begun to use textures...really don't know what I am doing but I have been doing a little reading up on the subject. At the present, I am hindered by not having the proper photo editing software to do textures. I have only played a bit with Picasa and being able to use their "overlay" feature.

I really love the dishes, Sherry...sooo pretty! A gorgeous vignette!!! Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us and for hosting another Home Sweet Home party!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Sherry! Thanks for stopping by. Just wanted to let you know that the link back to you is now up in my post. This blogger thing was a MESS! I've had all kinds of problems. It deleted things and then posted things twice but I think I fixed everything now. Enjoyed your post this week. Hopefully I can get around to visiting other bloggers now. :)

Hi Sherry: Glad this party got on it's way, blogger issues and all!
I love that set you used for your tablescape. I was disappointed because I saw bits and pieces of it at my TJ Maxx but not a whole set. I knew there must have been matching plates, bowls, etc. and I missed the boat on that one!
Have a great weekend!

Hi Sherry:
That tablescape is adorable. I saw some of those pieces at my TJ Maxx (cake server, bucket) but not the whole set. I was disappointed and knew I was too late for the plates, etc. Oh well. You did a great job. It's so country and summer sweet!

Kathy said...

You are getting quite well at photography - this is quite beautiful! So glad your party survived the Blogger down time - it was interesting - felt a wee bit of a sense of loss - not being able to visit or be visited!
Hope you have a blessed weekend,

Love the photos! Joining your party later than usual but I guess with the Blogger problems on Wednesday/Thursday it's a good thing, eh? I linked up a yummy cheesecake for you to enjoy-hope you are having a great weekend!

I love your red-checked tablecloth--the photos are so pretty--carnations are a favorite in any color! Hope to join in the next party. Hope you have lots of sunshine this week--no rain here finally!
