This morning I am enjoying the fire, taking down a few left over fall decorations and desperately looking for this weeks color. I think I got it somewhere in the leaves! This color was a little hard for me.
Also, my husband and I found out that we are expecting our first child!! What a perfect Christmas present!! Have a lovely week!!
Really, so far this has been the hardest color for me! It just isn't in my life! When I created the color chip (as I always do), I didn't expect the color that came up. This isn't what I thought of as mahogany. So, I shot the closest thing that I could find.
This is a carpet that I bought last year. It is one of two that are complete opposites. Here in Turkey, rug making is a family business. I was told that these rugs were made by a 12-15 year old child. I was shocked and really put off by the idea, until my friend told me about the family mentoring their children. It's more like an "apprenticeship". Knowing that these rugs where part of a young persons education in learning a trade, made me want one.
The style is called Kilim and I actually really like them the best. So far I have bought four of varying quality and will treasure them as remembrances from our time in Turkey.
Hey fellow bloggers! This is a picture I snapped a few days ago. Its my first shot at shaped bokeh. Well I'm off to take some medicine. Ive been sick all week so that's why the post is a little late and short. Happy coloring!
It's no secret that I find the majority of my color finds at home in the things that surround me and being a stay at home mom of two boys those things are often toys toys toys! That is exactly where I found my color today, in a Lincoln log house my boys built and their favorite truck Mater! Now they aren't exact but I thought it close! Once again these are with my iPhone, it seems to be the only camera close at hand these days!
Better late than never right?!? Since you are all sharing your black photos, I decided I better share one too. If black were next week, I would probably be posting a picture of Mickey Mouse! We are leaving Thursday to go to Florida! It's is a whole 40 degrees warmer in Florida than it is here in Oklahoma. That alone is exciting.
Anyway, my black find is a photo I did yesterday of a sweet Santa baby.
He was so cute and the perfect jolly Santa.
I enjoy your black posts...keep on posting! Have a great week.
The weekly favorite from the week 46 orange link up belongs to Lili's View!
Again I apologize for all the inconsistency the past few weeks and wanted to say thanks to all of you hanging in there and to the other ladies of the P64 blog who keep on posting. Below I am opening up the new link up, which is from week 47 black. I'll leave it open until 9am Central time Monday the 12th, since there was not an "official" color reveal it'll give everyone a little extra time to link up. Alright, lets see your black finds! I'm super excited to be back in the swing of things and ready to see them!
Week 47, Black
