The assignment that I gave myself this week was to play around with processing (I just got PSE 8, and I wanted to get a bit more familiar with using it). I started off by trying out some vintage frames and processing techniques.
We came across this old barn while out for a drive, and I just fell in love with it. The whole valley, actually:)
Yummy! I’ll have to post this recipe sometime… It was VERY good, and actually had a few redeeming qualities healthwise (no refined sugar, 1/2 ww flour, etc) Oh, and I actually MADE this frame using a photo of an old vintage postcard that I have. Pretty cool, huh?
Yesterday’s baking had me inspired…
Out driving again. We have been looking for some land to purchase, and came across this old farmhouse on 4.6 acres. It needs a lot of work (it’s a foreclosure) but I definitely see some potential. Oh yeah, and did I mention it’s CHEAP! Don’t you think that the tree in the yard is crying out for a rope swing?? 🙂 For anyone who doesn’t know me, my dream in life is to own a small CSA farm someday. I will raise dairy goats, and free range chickens, and organic vegetables, and maybe even have a small orchard. And every Saturday through the summer, I’ll have a little stand at the farmer’s market. Someday 🙂
I will never understand why Millicent allows him to do this, but she actually seems to like it.
Yay for the first yard sales of the season! Munchkin and I were pretty excited to find these cool wooden toys- we got a train, a dump truck, and a helicopter. Oh yeah, and some boring things like clothes and shoes.
I really liked the yellow buds against the weathered wood of this old chicken coop along the side of the road.
I have a pretty busy week coming up photo-wise: A wedding, a bridal portrait session, and two teen sessions. I think I’ll keep my P365 assignment simple and just focus on portrait processing. More pictures to come!
