My Bakers Rack & A Fall Salad

I finally found white pumpkins!

I love my bakers rack! It is so old and delicate!

It is so fun to decorate for fall using dried flowers and real food

Stay tuned for lots more on that!

I love to bake in the fall!

I will be showing some amazing recipes, baked goods,

stews, soups and sauces that take hours to cook… can’t wait!

Test 325 

I love this white vintage scale!

 I will also be sharing some tips on photography too.

I haven’t forgotten. I love my class and teacher. We have started with analog film.

So far, I can make a photogram, develop my own film and

I am in the process of making a negative sheet.

I am told that

when you start with analog film, it teaches in you in detail

about lighting, which is the most important

thing in photography as we all know.

I can apply everything I learn to my digital camera.

Sometimes, I

overexpose my lighting in my photographs of my home on purpose.

It softens the white and gives off a glow. I barely use photo shop.

This is all from my camera.

Test 287

Isn’t this bread bin amazing?

Oh ya,

Dusty’s nightstands did not turn out how I wanted them to,

so I will show part 2 of his room very soon.
