    Yep…. more butterflies!

    Saturday, April 9th, 2011

    I just can’t stop with the butterflies – sorry…. It’s good practice – nailing exposure when you’re that close is tough… All shot with my Canon 100mm 2.8 macro – for several of these, I used my Kenko extension tubes…

    Calla Lily

    I have forever loved Calla Lilys. Sigh.

    A FRESH laundry room makeover!

    Friday, April 1st, 2011

    A few weeks ago, I was inspired to do something a little…. DIFFERENT with my laundry room. It was painted the same beautiful taupe color that the rest of the house is painted, but I thought it needed a little color. And I do love color. :)

    Here is the laundry room BEFORE:

     

    And HERE is the new, FRESH laundry room! I first found the fabric, and promptly fell in love…. So, the room was really built around the fabric for the valance, which my mom made (I love you, Mom!). Then I chose a wall paint color (Calypso, from Sherwin Williams).

    Of course, I wanted to incorporate photography somehow, so I took a few laundry-related photos. I hid all the laundry-related stuff in coordinating bins, and presto! New laundry room!
