Back to School

I didn't realize that it has been so long between posts ... how time flies!  Days have been filled with last minute outings that we've been wanting to do all summer.  As we are nearing the first day of school we find ourselves trying to fit in all that is left undone.  

I've decided to try my hand at some new photography techniques.  It's been over a year since I purchased my "not so new anymore" camera and I still have so much to learn.  My first experiment was using natural lighting.  So I put away my photo tent and headed for a southern facing window.  I must admit I like the results!  Maybe a bit too bright but not a bad start.

I crocheted this apple from a pattern found in a magazine.  I thought it was super cute and it goes so well with the bright colors and the adorable vintage stamped image.  I used to love it when school started and I feel the same excitement even now.  Layered in details and perfect for the season!

Thanks for stopping by!
