Hello, and welcome to Sunday Sundries! I’m here to ramble on about my week, it helps me be grateful and to “celebrate” all the small (and large) extraordinary moments in my life.
This week I’m celebrating thyme … or time …
This little pot of herbs has given me so much inspiration at a time when I don’t have time for creating still life images … although I don’t know if it’s actually time, or if it’s a mental thing.
Life gets busy, and when I get pulled in too many directions, I find it hard to think … or perhaps focus is a better word. So my whole series “on the enamel table top” has been my saving grace. Last week it was Saskatoon berries, this week it’s thyme … and/or how to find time to create …
The day I found a whole enamel table top at the (
the dump) recycle depot I was stunned. It’s hard to believe, but it is in almost pristine condition. Why would someone throw it out? Actually, they threw out the whole Hoosier … I gasped when I saw it … but more on that story another day … .
So, very early in the morning, I quietly slip out the dining room door and onto our covered deck. I lay down the tabletop (it’s propped against the house), and get to work.
As I set up my scene I try to include the edges of the table, making sure to catch the chip in the lower right corner. That little chip not only adds character, it draws the eye around the photo.
I wish you could have smelled this as I clipped the sprigs for drying … it was intoxicating …
What else am I celebrating this week?
- Having internet after several days without, due to a lightning strike on one of the towers that serves our rural area.
- Rain! we finally received some wonderful soaking rains …
- Lovely summer days.
- Shopping and junquing with my grandchildren.
- Finding the perfect ladder … I have an amazing story to share … coming soon …
- Being featured on IG by Bella Grace! Such an honour!
- Finding thyme to create.
So what are celebrating this week?
