challenging myself!

I have been trying to challenge myself to take better pictures and do more texuring. I was blog surfing this morning and popped into Sadie Olive and decided to try it! Since I am not yet doing self portraits, I decide to take a photo of some of my favorite summer shoes and my new glasses. I did them in a mosaic or style board form also. This is for the photo challenge through Kasey's blog. I made 3......take a peek.


The first is my teal tennis shoes, a vintage perfume bottle, a vintage napkins on a teal bench and a milk glass vase textured with teal.

Here are my new glasses, a corner section of one of my vintage rugs, vintage books with the sun beaming in and chippy legs on my metal planter.

My favorite pink tennis shoes, vintage scalloped lacey ribbon, pretty pink roses and vintage seam binding.
