with Kim Klassen
It's only taken me all day to get here...between work, not feeling great, grocery shopping, laundry and dinner. Frankie surprised me by heating up the jacuzzi for an after dinner dip to help rid me of the cold that's working me. You can add jacuzzi soak to the list of why this post is up late.
I received a beautiful vase of purple tulips for my birthday a few weeks ago. They'll be the gift that keeps giving once I plant the bulbs in the ground. The petals are slowly falling off but are still so velvety, feathery, and feminine looking. Jamie snagged a gorgeous tea cup for me from her husband's grandmother. She was asking the girls in the family to claim some items left from another relative that had recently passed away. I've done a whole series of pearls, petals and that pretty bokeh tea cup that sits in the back.
For texture Tuesday, I really tweaked the 2nd image and used Kim's FRENCH MARKET texture on overlay at 35%. I added some Florabella's Vintage and Add Drama to the photo. I also played way too long because everything I was doing to the photo, wasn't quite how I envisioned. Too anal? Probably...but some things I just won't settle on.
In other news...
...there are so many sick kids at school that I know that's where I pick up crud...quite literally once a week. I live on Emergen-C. (love that stuff) I still feel yucky, but haven't gotten full blown sick...yet...
I just finished a terrific read...The Witches Daughter by Paula Brackston...you can find it on my side bar. Loved it from beginning to end. I've have never had good luck reading back to back author's books. I've usually loved the first read but not so much the second. At the moment, I'm thinking of giving it another go though. The two other titles are The Midnight Witch and The Winter Witch. The jacket photos alone suck me in! If you have read either of the latter-please chime in.
Ok, I think I'm going to go park myself on the couch and veg out until bedtime. I will be making my rounds to your blogs in the coming week. I love to see all your beautiful photos.
Happy (tulip lovin') snapping!
