take lots

Saturday, August 08, 2009

I take a lot of photos. Mostly for this life of mine. Therefore, I have a bunch of out-takes. I could fill an album with just out-takes and maybe one day I will.  A few out-takes from last week:
A jar of daisies left on the patio.  We came back from our trip to find them in this state.  I thought they were spectacular.  Yes, I did.
A new skirt for Libby, handmade (by someone else) from vintage fabrics.  Layered and embellished in just the right way.
A handmade cupcake to celebrate a little life.  I wanted to celebrate the maker.  She made thirty of these.  Just because.  


Enjoy your out-takes, they too are this life of yours.

  1. I love the mess of bracelets on the wrist. I remember having such a thing and it used to drive my mum crazy as I would never take them off - they had to fall off.

  6. Oh, how right you are! Imagine if we tried to put together a puzzle with the pieces missing. We'd get the gist of it but not the whole picture.

  7. Your outtakes are as beautiful as your uploads, and, yes, tell more of the story that is the moments and memories of this life of yours.

    The daisies are perfect. They speak how they missed you.

    The skirt and cupcakes are artistic masterpieces, gifts of friendship in return for all the love and beauty you share with others, as does your dear family, each and every member.

    Be well, dear friend, in all these days we know, one day at a time, step by step and hand in hand.

    I love baking, so the cupcakes drew me right in (I make my own as an exercise in delaying gratification. Doesn't work as well as it should).

  27. What a beautiful cupcake! I used to think decorating something that was just going to be eaten within a few hours was a complete waste of time- I don't think that way anymore! There is purpose and value in creating something beautiful, even if that beauty is fleeting...
    happy knitting-
