So we are “in-between”..”in-between the cold weather and the sudden eruption of Spring”….
…We all are guilty of saying, “I wish Spring would get here already!”…
……..OR, are we wishing our lives away and “not living in the moment”?…
So for today, I shall patiently wait for the FULL eruption of Spring, and just enjoy the flowers on the plates!
Oh..today, I FINALLY, TOOK THE CAMERA OUT OF THE BOX…
Oh yes, the much awaited D7000 that has been in the box for more months than I want to admit.
So we took a trip to Wolf/Ritz Camera yesterday and got all the little things I needed to get started..
AND..signed up for a “one on one” class. The Hubs thought that was the best thing to do (he knows me well)..
Hope you enjoy my “waiting for Spring” table…
My first pics with the new camera….
The place setting is Noritake Summer Estate..I obtained it from my friend who was changing out her everyday china. Her home had a French Country flair previously, and now more Tuscan..So I was the happy recipient of her dishes..pretty great, huh?
Aren’t these dishes the cutest?
I bought these napkins many years ago..It was a find with my initials..hand cross-stitched on linen…
I am practicing on close ups….
I think I can really see a difference in the photography…but have a ways to go..
Another close up..
The centerpiece container was an Avon (yes, as in Avon calling…) purchase well over 20 years ago…
So that’s my simple table that wants to transition to Spring…
AND..How did I do on my new adventures of photography?…let me know..I can take it…
