A Centrepiece !!!

Tried to use my imagination today...
With some fresh flowers in mind...
Came up with a centrepiece for my table...
Not bad...
But I must say I am so lost without picnic...
Anybody have any suggestions for easy on line photo editing??? 

One of my favourite things to collect "white pitchers"...
I have some old ones & new ones too...
I enjoy mixing old & new...
How about you???

Check out the sparkle of the sun shining on the handle of the pitcher...
This was a beautiful day to take pictures with the sun shining through the dining room window...

Love how St.Theresa is faded into the background...
She is so beautiful...
If you remember my last post she was in front of a large mirror in my living room, I enjoy moving around main focal points from one room to another...
You know how it is always wondering what corner to improve next...
Are we all just crazy???
Mu husband thinks so...
I'm quite content that's the main thing, so they say...   

Just playing around with some props...

Oh I also love collecting all shades of white platters too...
Some have a little designs around the edges but most are just a solid color...
How about you???
I'm sure platters are on the top of your addiction list as well...

So let the sunshine in
face it with a grin...
Smilers never lose
and frowners never win...
So let the sunshine in
face it with a grin...
Open up your heart & let the sunshine in...

Simply Simple...

Blessings to all my followers...
This is the day the Lord has made
let us rejoice & be glad...

  29. Hi there -found your blog tonight and have subscribed. I find it so beautiful that so many bloggers talk about their faith. I'm not a religious person but do believe in God, I learn alot from reading blogs.
    Don't have a blog of my own but so enjoy visiting many bloggers. Your's is lovely and your home is beautiful. I'll have to try that Picmonkey. I don't have Photoshop and have no idea how to use it. I was told about Gimp. Think it's supposed to be something like photoshop or Picmonkey. I'm not good with that kind of thing but will give it a look to see what's up.
