Photo Practice: Dessert

I have a new (to me) digital camera.  It's got way more bells and whistles than I need, but I'm trying to practice using it so I can get better.  I read somewhere that using portrait mode is a good idea -- it gets you that nice close-up with a blurred background.

This was a shot of dessert today -- fresh brownies with hot fudge sauce topped with a strawberry.

Seeing Stars

Vintage mid-century star glasses
:  $22
Mid-century modern star platter:  $65
Atomic dinner plates:  $6

If I could afford it, my entire house would be mid-century modern.  I love the simplicity and cleanness of the look. 

These star motif items recently caught my eye.

(And Blogger sucks big time at placing photographs in a post.)


By day, I am the executive director of a museum association.  I need to be organized, efficient and do lots of planning.  But the (tiny) part of my brain that's creative needs more of an outlet.  So I'm starting to make jewelry to sell on Etsy, and I want to see how else I can express myself creatively. 

It's going to be a big ol' experiment.  Should be fun!
