I have had a thing for silver trees most of my life. I found this beauty when I was 15 at a local flea market. This tree is from the '50s, it's a little feeble and you may find tape holding most of it together. I wouldn't trade that tree for anything and I hope it graces many more Christmas'!
My mom (Sheryl) and dad are headed to the USA from Turkey! I can't wait to see them! I pray each of you have a very Merry Christmas!
I was really excited to post silver. I have had this picture for over a year. Last year for Christmas, Terry and I went to Munich. In Munich is the BMW plant and museum. I really can't express how fantastic the experience was seeing that museum. From motorcycles to cars, jet engines and space pursuits, it's all there! The design of the museum it's self was worth the visit.
I know, it seems like I am in a motorcycle rut, but I thought this was the prettiest one I have ever seen! The picture does it no justice. The pearl paint is actually undercoated with silver.
I did actually have a couple of more pictures I was really excited about, but I guess I have lost them. I changed computers during this year and I guess they didn't get transferred. The concept cars were amazing. If you ever go to Munich, don't miss this exhibit.
I hope everyone has had a good week. I am finally all better.I hated being sick! My picture is of a little tree and our front door wreath. I LOVE it! My mom does such a good job decorating for any holiday, but especially Christmas. Sorry this is so short but I am off to help a friend move into her new apartment :). Have a great weekend!
When this week's color first came out of the box I was excited as I was right in the middle of wrapping Christmas presents and just knew that one of my beautifully wrapped gifts would do just the job...however, as most things go, it just didn't turn out quite the way I wanted it to. While playing around with all the ribbons and trimmings in my arsenal of gift wrapping supplies a string of silver beads caught my eye and it seemed my camera loved them too. I kind of like though that my initial idea didn't work out, because at first I started out snapping my pictures in a robotic way just trying to hurry up and finish my task, but once I was inspired by those shinny beads I started to have fun again with my camera, something I feel I've been missing the past few months since I've been swamped with portraits! Well I hope you have fun with Silver because I sure did!
Look there are a ton of little MEs in all those tiny shiny orbs!
What are the holidays without some shiny bokeh! Plus I love making bokeh that doesn't come from lights but shiny things instead, heck I just love bokeh, its so pretty and dreamy!
I guess I could of played around for hours and posted a lot more, but I dare not bore you with a ton of pictures of shiny silver beads! Happy color hunting everyone!
