Spring Hearth


Pink roses, from our flower garden, on the stone hearth today for your viewing enjoyment.


I have only sharpened the images and the pinkness of the roses looks a little odd. I am not brave enough to fiddle with hue, saturation, and light or contrast on a new editing program. Not today. My learning curve is stretched super thin.


The vintage European watering can is an estate sale find from last year. You all have seen my white pottery scads of time before and the chippy white wood pedestal.  I found the reproduction tin tile at a garage sale.

  6. Very creative use of mixed colors and textures to create this hearth vignette. I love the concrete head. Strange thing with me about flowers in the garden. I can never bring myself to cut them. I now wish I had cut my daisies because they are lying flat on the ground after this weekend's deluge.

  8. This is a really nice arrangement, Olive! Very creative! I love the softness of the flowers against the urns and statue.

    I just started using Picmonkey. I've gotten as far as Auto Adjust and watermarking photos! lol!

  9. Reds and pinks are very difficult to photograph, for some reason they attract reflective light, but your whole composition is charming. You will get there in the end with your new computer - I know that really you are a bit of a wiz kid on the computer - I do remember how you helped me out.

  13. The pink of the roses are lushly velvet looking so I thought you were going for that on purpose. Them mixed with the other elements is striking. Loved the wood finial thing turned on its side.

    1. No photo effect here. Just weird pink rose refections.

  20. Your roses are beautiful! I'm glad you've got your new computer up and running. I'm sure you'll have it all tweaked to perfection in no time at all!

    Eek! Snakes in your trees. :O

  21. This is really pretty, Olive. Puts me in mind of a Victoria magazine shoot. You have great way of giving things a 'tossed together' look that is still perfectly balanced. Am I gushing? Well, I like it!

  22. New lap top, stretching the learning curve . . . I think you're doing quite well. Challenging ourselves to learn how to operate something new and then learn an edit program too! Difficult for some of us.

    I enjoy how you create your pieces together, the old watering can, the roses, vases, older relics . . . I reallly like it all.

  24. Give me chippy, chippy and more chippy every time Olive. I love it all.
    We spent the whole Bank Holiday weekend in the garden ..... my muscles ache and, as always when I do my first blitz on the garden, have a blister on my palm from too much digging !!!!
    Have a lovely week both of you. XXXX
