New Kitchen Chairs

They are perfect AND comfortable! 
Now we need new legs for the table.
Something less 'Early American' and more in keeping with the chairs. 
And the Plantation shutters are slowly being installed by Husband. It's all coming together and looks EXACTLY  like I pictured it in my head (which is a miracle in itself, lol!) 
I wonder what I'm going to do when it's all done and I don't have to make any more decisions or spend anymore $$$$?!?!?!?

I Love the Smell of Leather in the Morning......

The new couch is here! YAY! 
Things are starting to come together. 
Believe it or not what you are looking at cost more than my first car!

New Toys


I’ve looked at these clip on lenses for my android phone for a while now but I could never justify spending the money on a whim. If I can’t find a reason it just seems like a waste. What was I ever going to use them for?

Well……along comes an online class where I needed to buy a remote shutter for my phone…..and Husband, being the loving spouse (and enabler) that he is, found this for me. 



I didn’t really need the tripod OR the lenses but since it all came as a package deal I thought why not?

Boy am I having fun! How’s THIS for a macro lens? 

And it has a fisheye lens….what am I going to do with it I don’t know but it’s fun to play with. 


While I’m waiting for one more piece of equipment to arrive (so I can actually do my homework for the class) I’m amusing myself with mono-printing.

 



These close ups with the macro lens fascinate me!
