It's free & easy over at Kim's
Which suits me just fine!

I am so excited that I have a bit of a break from all the yuckiness that my family is going through.  Summer vacation starts in a few weeks and I can hopefully spend more time blogging, take some much needed down time to sooth and heal my heart. I want to feed my creative spirit by learning something new, definitely spend more time with Frankie, maybe get in a few day trips...Oh I am SO ready!
 (can you tell?)
The props I used for this photo is part of a very large jar of thread & spools I found at a garage sale on one of my daily walks while staying with my Mom in Fla. I didn't even haggle the price down as it had my name written all over it.
 It cost me more to mail it home but it's priceless to me. I don't even sew...barely a button!
 I was glad to have something to shoot and post on IG while away from home. 
I used Kim's "WORD" texture. I'm a sucker for anything with text on it!
Until next time...
Happy (almost summer vacation) shooting!


  1. Super nice shot! Love all the bobbins.

  2. I love the simplicity and homespun feel to this! {Happy to "meet" you here, I recognize your name from IG, following Kim S.}

    1. Thank you Dotti. Actually I recognize you! Small world.

  3. I love the light and crisp colors of this! I'm a sucker for vintage thread spools myself :)

  4. The spools and bobbins remind me soooo much of my mom :)

  5. one more day and I will officially have one High School Senior and one College Junior - holy crap! I love your use of this texture and am glad I am not the only one that finds old wooden spools of thread and sewing machine gadgets photo worthy.

  6. I don't sew either, but this image is right down my alley. Very beautiful.

    1. Thank you Carola for stopping in!

  7. Beautiful. What memories it brings to me. I can see all that on my mother's sewing machine in the back porch. Wonderful photo. Great composition.


  8. You make thread look so beautiful! Perfect texture with this too!

  9. Dear Texture Tuesday friends,
    I'm sure you know that Kim's husband is currently undergoing chemotherapy for Leukemia in Winnepeg. I would like for us TT followers to do something special for Kim and John this week. If you are able, could you create a Texture Tuesday image with the theme of HEALING for Kim and John, and post it on her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/kimklassencafe this Tuesday? I would love to see a big show of support and love for them.
    Thank you,
    Joyelle Brandt, Texture Tuesday fan
